Advent Calendar

My CTMH Advent Calendar

I saw a calendar like this in the Idea Book last year, and have always wanted to make one.  So this year, I did!  I had so much fun with it, and can't wait until December to put it out and hide some goodies inside the boxes!

Finished Project!

I stamped all the numbers in black ink

The Irresistibles frames allow you to color them and have a ink resistant pattern on them!

I added sparkles on certain numbers where I thought it looked good.

Here are the supplies I used to create this (All supplies are CTMH):

Cardstock - I used 3 sheets of each of the following colors: 
New England Ivy

1- My Creations Cubby


2 sets of Irresistibles Frames
Sparkles (I used some clear, red, and green ones)
Magical Days Stamp Set (This is is the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide, available October 15th, and you can even get this stamp set for free!)

The boxes are on the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge, set at 2.5"

This project was a lot of fun!!! Pin It

2013 Fall/ Winter Idea Book

Ok,  so I am a little behind in posting, it has been quite the year.  However I wanted to post about the new idea book..  It is awesome!  So ordinarily I would posts several posts with the following info;  but since i am so behind, I will combine it all into one post.

My favorite things about the new Idea Book:

So the past couple of years I have been LOVING Smash Books.  They are so fun to do as an everyday journal/scrapbook, and a great place to keep small memorabilia like ticket stubs from fun things you do.  So when CTMH launched their My Crush books in this catalog, I was so excited!!  Finally a "smash book" from my favorite company!!!

So far there are two, both are super cute, and the accessory packs available for each are awesome!  Here is Bluebird:

Next, I love fall, so I love the Huntington line.  The papers are so beautiful, plus the little button embellishments are wood!   They are so cute!  So here are some photos of some artwork with this line, and also the Workshop On the Go.

So Happy Scrapbooking!  I will try to be better about keeping this up to date.  I have a very cute Christmas project I will be posting shortly, and the Holiday Guide comes out on the 15th!!

The Ranch

I am very blessed.  I am adopted and because of God I am blessed to have my biological family in my life.  We have a tremendous amount of fun together!  Drew, Kelsey, Aurora, Addy and Iyden all live in Alaska, so it was a rare treat for us to all be able to spend New Years together at the ranch that Anna and Sean manage.

It was so incredibly cold let me just say.  The lows got below zero and the highs were like 18.  So we did lots of sledding, bonfire's, played games, and laughed.  We were all sick, but you would never know it looking at the photos, it didn't slow us down!  It was great.  It may be a little while before I can scrapbook this because I am working on another project right now, so I thought I would post a few pictures.
