Color Your World Technique Blog Hop...

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop featuring COLOR, and in any form!

We only have 14 CTMH Consultants participating this month so it should be a fairly quick blog hop FULL of color! If you've from Maz's Blog, you're on the right track! You will hop around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME!

Another CTMH Consultant posted the CUTEST little cards using this tiny little stamp set. So, I decided to draw inspiration from Tina Sutton's cards and make my own! The stamp set is one I give to my CUSTOMERS when they place an order on my website...it also happens to be the PERFECT little image to use when giving little notes to your loved ones!

The paper used is from the Oh My Heart collection and it's so ADORABLE (and not just for Valentines)...the little hearts are from a Hostess EXCLUSIVE stamp set (ask me how to get one) and you can see how EASY the waffle shading was using just ONE MARKER - Tan Tri-Blend from the many Tri-Blend markers we offer...





Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to shop my website of you want tour very own WAFFLE LOVE stamp set! Or feel free to contact you FAVORITE CTMH CONSULTANT and I'm sure he/she will offer the same CUTENESS for an order!

Hop on over to Melissa's Blog to complete the hop or keep going if you joined somewhere in the middle!

Celebrate Good Times with H2H...

I'm not sure if you've seen the NEW Celebrate Today line from CTMH but it's PERFECT for just about anything springy! I decided to use it for a very special birthday layout and we are definitely CELEBRATING GOOD TIMES in this one-page layout for the H2H Challenge this month!

Here's a look at my one-page layout (excuse the glare as this layout has some interactive Flip-Flaps so I had to take the photo while it was in the Memory Protector.

-----------------------------------
Here's a look at the first flip out...I used 4x4 flip flaps I could use that little 2x4 piece of polka-dot B&T as my subtitle for the "#5" which was cut with the Block Number Thin Cuts (my go-to for titles)...
------------------------------------
Here's the final flip out...

What are you guys celebrating today? Please consider documenting the occasion on a Scrapbook layout and link up to our H2H Challenge! We would LOVE to celebrate with you!

Have a GREAT week!

Cherishing Her SOTM Blog Hop...

Well, guys, we made through the first month of 2020 and the first month of the NEW DECADE! Let's celebrate by celebrating the women in our lives with the February SOTM from Close to my Heart!



I am joining 22 other CTMH Consultants to bring you a wide variety of artwork showcasing this sentiment-heavy stamp set. We are hopping around in a big 'ol loop so you can see everyone's blog and what have to share. If you've come from Wendy's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME!


I decided to make a one layer card using a masking technique to add a watercolor look in the back ground...here's a look


The watercolor comes from the stamp set Strokes of an Artist and it is part of the STAMPTACULAR Sale going on NOW!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to hop on over to Brandi's Blog and see what she has to share. If you get lost for any reason, you can visit Melinda's Blog for a complete list of CTMH Consultants participating this month!
