New Year, new projects and new memories!

Well it has been awhile since I last posted! Life has just been happening too fast! We had Football season with my two cheer girls, a trip to Disneyland, Thanksgiving, Morgan's eleventh Birthday, the big freeze, the Holidays and whew! I wonder why I am so tired!!

I had the opportunity to try our online scrapbooking program Studio J. I had some layout credits from a long time ago that were due to expire at the end of last year. I sat down the last few nights before the New Year and played to my hearts content. I downloaded my pictures quickly and easily with the program. I was even able to resize and edit them. I made a total of 14 two page layouts in about six hours. I am really excited to receive these. I learned a lot but did make a few mistakes (I spelled San Francisco wrong 3X!!!). I will be able to add more embellishments and fix any boo boos when I get them. I was in a hurry because of my credits expiring.

Here is a sneak peek at a few of my pages.

You can try out all aspects of the program for free, no purchase or obligation. If you choose to purchase there is the choice of having CTMH print your layouts and give you all rights to the JPEG files or you can just purchase the JPEG's and have them printed at Costco or wherever you choose. My credits included the printing and the JPEG's.
If you would like to try out Studio J click here! There are a lot of you tube videos available to give you ideas and help you learn how to use the Studio J software. Click here!
Let me know what you think! Happy Stamping!

Fall Wreath Using Cricut Cartridges

I made this burlap wreath last year using burlap ribbon and a wire wreath form. I have made snowflakes, fourth of July rosettes and now fall leaves to decorate it. I cut all of these leaves out on my Cricut with the CTMH Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges. I hot glued the leaves onto a cardboard form and then pinned the whole thing onto the wreath making  it interchangeable for the different seasons. Happy Stamping! Sandee

Home of the Brave!

Quick card I made using this month's special release stamp set "Home of the Brave" D1576  I stamped directly onto White Daisy cardstock using Cranberry, Grey Wool  and Outdoor Denim Ink. The paper strip on the bottom was a scrap I had left over from the retired Super Hero paper. I wrapped it with cranberry striped baker's twine.  Flag and lady Liberty were stamped, then cut out and popped up for more dimension! I added red glitzy glitter and some silver stars!
This set is $17.95 with $5 being donated to the LSO the leading service and support organization for the US military! Ask me how to get your special stamp too!
This stamp set is only available for the month of July.

CTMH Chantilly Spring Cards Using Cricut Art Philosophy

I made a couple cards using the new Chantilly papers! I used the CTMH exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut out the cards and the birds!  These cards have no stamping on them! The sentiments are from the border zip strips that come on the papers. A little bonus each paper has! Colors are better in person!
 Happy Stamping! Sandee

The second card is a standard A2 card. I used the card pattern found in the Chantilly Card Workshop on the Go! It includes a great stamp set with banners, the cake and other images for celebrating. I added a little bling and some more of that great Pom Pom Ribbon ! Happy Stamping! Sandee
