Day 9: Heartstrings Scrapbook Kit

While I was updating my page kits buttons last night I realized that I'd never actually posted the Heartstrings pages on the blog - just sent them to my sweet Club members. I love the pink and Lagoon colors in these pretty papers!
And here's the full pages from the Heartstrings Kit.
I printed these pics all on Studio J using the new Express Collection for drop and drag photos. It was great for all my weird square instagrams! You could totally do four 4x6 vertical photos instead. 
The paper wasn't too girly for my sweet Max tuxedo pics. I added a little flip out album (tied with the bow there) to fit in more pics of my little fancy ham.
I refuse to shy away from "girly" papers when scrapping my boy adventures. We were in a sweet cupcake shop, and the boys were so well behaved (for once). Ok, except when Ben licked his crumbs off the table. Doh!
Find this kit and many more over on my no commitment Monthly Memories Club page.

Day 8: Hopscotch Monthly Memories Scrapbooking Kit

I'm excited to share the first of two 6 page scrapbooking kits I'll be releasing this month. 
These Hopscotch papers are only available while supplies last through the end of March. Hopscotch is so bright and cheerful. It was fun to find photos to work with this happy paper.
Monthly Memories kits start at about $15 for the Basic Kit supplies. The I Want It All kit includes a few more embellishments for those who prefer a more detailed scrapbook page. I like the lumpy bumpies! 
To get your Monthly Memories Hopscotch kit just head over to my website and order what you need from the "bring list" below. 
I'll email you the full color instructions with complete cutting guides to make the pages a breeze to recreate. 

Remember, the Hopscotch papers are only available while supplies last though the end of March!

Day 7: March SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the March SOTM Blog Hop. This month we have over 60 consultants sharing their creative projects using the March SOTM. You should be arriving here from ANGELA'S BLOG. Let's get hopping!
This month I chose to paint a small 4x6 canvas to use with my favorite stamp in that set, the "Choose happy" sentiment. I painted the canvas silver, and added streaks of Silver glitter paint, sparkly pink nail polish, and Outdoor Denim ink, I embossed the scalloped border and frame onto pink cardstock and fussy cut the elements. You'll see a bit of one of the swirl stamps in there as well as some black sparkle flourishes. My colors were grey/silver, Outdoor Denim, and Blush pink. I'm linking up to the Heart 2 Heart Think Pink Challenge.

Here you can see the texture of the nail polish splatters. The flowers were colored with a blush marker and glittered. I love this flower shape because I don't have to cut leaves too - I can just trim out the individual petals and turn those into leaves.

Don't forget you can get this SOTM for as low as $5, but only through the month of March. Contact your consultant or click here to order yours today! Next up on the hop is ALYSON'S BLOG. I can't wait to see what she's done with this adorable stamp set.

Day 6: Scrapping Our Stash Hop

Welcome to the February Scrapping Our Stash blog hop, where each month we create projects using only stuff from our stash! You might be arriving here still smiling from CATHY'S BLOG
This month I made a piece of "She" Art. CTMH did these on canvases at an event I didn't get to attend. Of course, I made mine in an embroidery hoop to add to my Hoop Art wall. I didn't have instructions, or a template for the doll figuring, but I figured I've got enough stuff, so I jumped right in. I found my Quote on Pinterest, and lettered it by hand.
I know there's cool stamps out there now to make these dolls, but I'm using my stash, so I just got some Colonial White CS and started cutting. When I found a face shape I liked, I outlined it with a black fine-tipped journaling pen. That went ok, so I tackled the hair, using scrap brown cardstock from my bin. I even added a glittery streak where I have a natural blonde streak in my own hair.Then I drew the neck and body in pencil. I cut that apart to use as a template to trim the Colonial White CS and patterned papers. I outlined everything after I pieced it together and I'm really happy with how it came out. The pants are a really old retried CTMH pattern, and the top (and the fussy cut butterfly on the top) came from a Simple Stories 6x6 pad. I colored the skin using my Spectrum Noir markers. I sprayed the background behind the doll with Krylon glitter spray using a sunburst template my sweet downline Karin gave me many moons ago.
For the background I mounted some pink CTMH retired patterned paper onto the inside hoop. Once that dried I cut notches all along the outer edge and glued the paper down before tightening the outer hoop. I sponged the paper with cream acrylic paint. Is tamped it with my 2015 CHOOSE HAPPY sentiment in Gypsy ink. I added sponging in Crystal Blue, and stamped on some blue hearts and recipe lines in a crosshatch pattern, too. I found some older rub-ons in my stash in cream and black and started applying them. Then I built the flower rainbow using up a cup of extra flower diecuts I've had forever. I colored the flowers and the sparkly embellies with Spectrum Noir markers. The frame was painted cream. Then I applied White daisy Reinker all around the edge and a line of Pink stickles and used a pin to mix it up.

Basically, I just grabbed anything within arms reach and kept on gluing and inking until I was happy. It was a super fun project - you should totally try it! 
The next blog bringing you stash goodness is SUZANNA'S BLOG. Enjoy!  

Here's the complete list of blogs in the hop, just in case!

Day 5: Picture My Life Mini Album

Today I'm sharing a fun project I've been cooking up for the CTMH Picture My Life cards. These sets of adorable cards are good for more than just fast and easy pocket scrapbooking.
I used the Babycakes PML collection to build this sweet flippy mini album and more than a dozen quick cards. 
The album would be an amazing shower card/gift, and has a little pocket plus lots of flips and flaps to hold your notes and pics.
How fun are these sweet cards? They look all layered and like lots of work, but the PML cards do all the work for you! I am in love with Picture My Life!

With any Picture My Life purchase through the end of March, I'll send you a pre-scored and folded PML mini album base in a color coordinated to your PML kit choice, ten white card bases, and full color instructions on how to make your own set of pocket scrapbooking goodies. I labored hard over these instructions to make sure they were easy to follow and still adaptable to whichever card kit you choose. I used just one roll of washi tape as my only embellishment, which is basically a minor miracle. You can add a matching roll to your order or just use some from your stash. While I kept my first album simple with just the cards and a roll of washi tape, I think the project would look great with some glitter gel or leftover embellies, so this would be a good stash busting project as well. 

This project will work with any one of the fabulous PML kit choices, so just hop on over to my website to choose your favorite. Place your order for any Picture My Life card set (feel free to join the Monthly Memories gathering already open), and I'll ship out your extra kit goodies within three days. If your order is $40 or more, I'll double the PML goodies, so two album bases and 20 cards, since most of the PML kits could easily do two sets of everything. 
Consultant Friends you'll find instructions only Consultant Kits here.

Next week I'll show you how this instructional set would with both CTMH's PML cards and the popular Project Life card kits as well. I love this mini album project, and I know you will too!
