CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Fun with Folds

Welcome to the February 2017 
Technique Blog Hop!

Image may contain: text

For this month's CTMH Technique Blog Hope, we are featuring creative techniques with "Folds". I am looking forward to seeing everyone's inspiration. 

If you are coming from Daryls Recker's Blog, you are in the correct spot. I hope you enjoy checking out everyone's blog - all you have to do is click on the link at the bottom of everyone's post to get to the next blog. Happy hoppin'!

The card I am featuring was inspired by Lori Whitlock's You Tube Video


This card is an A2 standard size card. To make this card I used our Raspberry Cardstock for the base and the Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Packet. The cupcake in the center of the card swivels. To create the cupcake, I used CTMH's "Sweet Birthday" Stamp Set and Sweet Birthday Thin Cuts. I used our ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  Our paper packet is so colorful that you can use a variety of colors to make this card! 

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Now it's time to hop on over to Haley Dyer's - The Inky Scrapper BlogBe sure to drop a comment and join my blog (it's new). We love hearing from you!  Thanks for stopping by too!!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Crazy for Complements

Welcome to the January 2017 Technique Blog Hop!


For this month's CTMH Technique Blog Hop, we are featuring the use of our CTMH Complements. I can't wait to see all the creativity using these embellishments from everyone! If you are coming from Darlys Recker's Blog, you are in the correct spot.  This month we have approximately 10 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their ideas using this technique along with other CTMH products. I hope you enjoy checking out everyone's blog - all you have to do is click on the link at the bottom of everyone's post to get to the next blog.  Enjoy!


Let me start out by stating that this is just a sampling of the cards you can make using our Springtime Complements . I have so many more pieces to make more cards or use them for Scrapbook Pages.  Many of my ideas are inspired from Pinterest. 

The "Hello" Card is using the "Hello" Sticker from the sticker page. I used strips of papers from our new Paper Packets in the Seasonal Expression 1 Catalog and Sorbet Cardstock

The "My Love" Card is using the Gold & White chipboard pieces from the Springtime Complements. The base of the card is Black Cardstock , Sea Glass Cardstock  and our  Gold Glitter Paper

The "Smile" Card is using the White Chipboard "Smile" which I used our Sponge Daubers using the Thistle and Sapphire Stamp Pads. Can't forget the dot on the "i" for smile one of the stickers from the Springtime Complements with a little bling. Lastly, the base of the card is Thistle and Whisper Cardstock embossed using the Happy Thoughts Embossing Folder.

The "Heart" Card is using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder (retired). Inside the honeycombs, I placed the 5 tiny heart stickers from the Springtime Complements. I used our new Circle Thin Cuts placing a circle sticker from the complements. The heart stamped in the center is from Happy Hearts Stamp Set and sorbet ribbon from the Whimsey Ribbon Collection

Now hop on over to  Catherine Nowak's Blog to see her amazing artwork. Be sure to drop a comment and join my blog (it's new). We love hearing from you!  Thanks for stopping by too!!
