Pocket Power - CTMH Technique Blog Hop...

Thanks for joining us for a quick Technique Blog Hop featuring POCKET POWER and boy does CTMH have LOTS of "pocket" options for every crafter!!!

If you've come from Melissa's Blog, you're on the right track! And...with only nine CTMH Consultants participating this month, it won't take you long to hop, leave some love and be inspired!

I wanted to do something out of the ordinary so I took one of our 3x4 Flip Flaps (usually used to make pockets and interactive scrapbook pages) and made a card featuring the Craft On line, Stitched Flowers Thin Cuts (back in stock at the end of the month) and the Operation Smile - You Are My Sunshine stamp set!

------------------------------------------------------
Aren't those Crafty Sequins and colors of the Craft On paper FUN!!!! To create the pocket, I took my Flip Flap over to my sewing machine and sewed the pocket shut (after I put the sequins in of course...lol). Flip Flaps have an adhesive strip that is meant to adhere the pocket to your layout or page protector...I adhered the flap flap, using its adhesive strip, to the card base then adhered that GORGEOUS striped B&T on top so all is hidden...
---------------------------------------------
Here's a look when the Flip Flap is open...exposing the sentiment and those leaves of the flower. This card is a flat base so I will write my sentiment on the back, not to mess with the aesthetic of the card front...

Thanks for stopping by! Hop on over to Cat's Blog and see what she has to share!

Dream Big, Little Guy with H2H...

Happy Monday, everyone!!!

This week's H2H Challenge is WOODWORK which I immediately thought of one of my FAVORITE new lines from CTMH...Into The Wild!

This is a baby card for a coworker and I just LOVE how it turned out!

--------------------------------------------
Here are a couple of closeups! The Wood Shapes and PML Cards are ADORABLE just by themselves!

-----------------------------------------------
The Into the Wild Scrapbooking Stamp Set & Thin Cuts made this card come together quite easily! And the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts made cutting that little window EASY too!

----------------------------------------
And...here is a look at the inside...I added White Daisy Cardstock only to the left portion so my writing wouldn't show through the window...


Thanks for stopping by!

Don't forget to join this challenge before the end of the month...we'd LOVE to have you!

FREE Scrapbooking Patterns from CTMH...

shared from ctmh's blog...

Where to Find Free Scrapbooking Patterns (and More!)

Scrapbook Patterns #ctmh #closetomyheart #scrapbooking #album #pattern #theworldisyours #sweetgirl
We pride ourselves on our “Let Me Show You How” philosophy. That is one of the reasons we love providing free, downloadable patterns, whether that is right here on this blog, or on Closetomyheart.com.
Whenever we offer a workshop kit for sale, the instructions are available as a free downloadable PDF file right on our website. These instructions come fully equipped with additional materials needed lists, cutting guides, featured techniques, step-by-step assembly instructions, project photos, tips, AND patterns. Without any obligations or commitments, you can visit our site, find these workshops, download the files, and use the patterns in them at your discretion.
Even though these timeless patterns are designed with specific products in mind, we stand behind their versatility and encourage you to use them time and time again. With different papers, embellishments, and subjects matters, the finished results will always be unique.
Since this month is all about scrapbooking, we took the three scrapbook layout patterns from the Workshops Your Way® Sweet Girl Scrapbooking Kit and made new pages using The World Is Yours collection.

In each of our seasonal catalogs, you will find one scrapbooking and one cardmaking workshop for every paper collection offered. The scrapbooking workshops walk you through creating three coordinating 2-page layouts while the cardmaking workshops come with several card designs and patterns to make anywhere between 12 and 16 cards. Outside the catalogs, we also have regular monthly specials. Often, these promotions will include a workshop—this is where you will find instructions and patterns for other things as well, like mini albums and the occasional papercrafting project.
If you’re ever looking for a pattern, revisit some of your old workshops or come and visit us here or on our website. Remember, the patterns on our site are only available while the workshop kits they are featured in are, so make sure to grab them while you can!
