National Paper Crafting Month Special

Is this not a GORGEOUS wreath?  January is National Paper Crafting Month and this amazing Welcome Home special is fun to make and so very pretty!.  And it's at a great price of only $18.95 OR even better, FREE with a $60 purchase!  Can't beat that! 

I am so in love with this project and the cool thing is it's made of all paper!  Beautiful colors of Sea Glass, Juniper, Sweet Leaf, Fern, New England Ivy, shiny Gold, White and wood grain patterned papers. 

The roses are made of white paper but I chose to sponge mine with Sorbet ink for a soft coral color.  The succulents are sponged with Fern, New England Ivy, Sea Glass and Juniper.  

You can title your wreath with Welcome, your name or anything you'd like.  You can see mine says Enjoy Today.

Happy Mail!

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I always try to do it all!  The shopping, baking, cards, homemade gifts, entertaining, not to mention the everyday tasks we all keep up with.   All of that makes for a stressed out Super Holiday Woman.  That was me!  So to keep a little of my sanity in December, I gave myself permission to send out New Years cards instead of Christmas cards 
to my CTMH team.  

44 cards went out last week.  Whew!  
I would guess they've arrived to the recipients by now, so here are the pics!

I used a bunch of fun CTMH products, of course.  The card bases were from a retired card kit. 
The Colonial White cardstock was embossed with the Chevron Embossing Folder and topped off with some sweet Cricut cuts using the CTMH Exclusive Cartridge - Flower Market.  

Supplies used:
Retired: CTMH Cut Above "Deck the Halls" Card Kit

Hello Lovely January Stamp of the Month

January's Stamp of the Month "Adore You" is oh so pretty!  The new Hello Lovely paper and a bit of Sea Glass Glitter paper are all that's needed for subtle accents to this simple card design.  
A little soft coloring with the Watercolor Pencils and Blending Pen,  Gold Shimmer Brush, White and Gold Twine, and a few Clear Sparkles complete this pretty card.

I am super excited about all the beautiful new products featured in the Seasonal Expressions 1 supplement catalog!  This gem of a book happens to be FREE with your first order in January too!  Yay!  I'll be sharing a lot more samples made with products from it throughout the next 4 months.  It's live from January 1 - April 30.

Can you see the beautiful warm sparkle from the new Gold Shimmer Brush?
LOVE it!  My favorite new tool!
