From the Notebook: Celebrate!

It's Monday and here's a bright and cheerful message to remind us to celebrate today!  Hope you have the best week ever!  

I created this fun card with the July Stamp of the Month "From the Notebook".  
There are a lot of hidden treasures in the set if you just look for them.  It's fun to put together sentences with the words and icons.  Let your imagination lead you to some creativity!

I used the Magical patterned papers because they make me happy!   You just can't help but smile with you look at the fun colors and patterns!  

I love all the little M size stamps!  This one is retiring July 31st.  
Get it while you can!

The sequins didn't photograph well on my card, but trust me, they are shiny and bright.  Even though there are sequins to match the Magical papers, I used the red and gold from the Florence Sequin pack. 

Additional CTMH Supplies used:
Stamp Pads:  Cranberry, Saffron, Black
Clear Sparkles
(Scallop Border Punch - Retired)

With the new 2016-2017 Annual Inspirations Idea Book just around the corner, that means there MANY products retiring and 

These are some of my favorite products that will be gone after July 31 or earlier if they sell out!

 Georgie Paper Pack.  So cute for baby and many themes.  It really quite versatile as it only has one paper with baby specific designs!
Georgie Complements.  Love these sweet accents!

Designed Decor Shadow Box Frame.  I will really miss this one!  I've had a year long class this year where we make a featured page for each month to display in our Shadow Box Frame.  It's been a blast!

Display Frame.  Great gift and perfect for school photos 1st through 12th grades.  Also makes a darling 1st year of life frame featuring a baby photo for each month.

Art Philosophy was our first CTMH Exclusive Cricut Cartridge.  I will really miss this one as well as Artiste and Artfully Sent.  All three are retiring so get them while you can!

Stars and Stripes Forever!

I love how this patriotic page turned out for my monthly
 Shadow Box Frame Class.
I only wish my photos would show how sparkly and colorful it is!

While I designed this page, it brought back memories of my childhood going to 4th of July picnics with my family and fireworks on our farm.  I thought of parties held at lake cabins,  and of parades, sparklers, patriotic songs, and American pride.
I hope you create some cherished memories this 4th of July weekend!  Let Freedom Ring!

The Shadow Box Frames are retiring and are available while supplies last.  Hurry and order if you'd like one!   Find them here.  I will sure miss them when they're gone!
