October Scrapbooking Workshop


Don’t you just LOVE this fall layout designed by fellow CTMH consultant Madeline Morcelo? She generously provided step by step instructions, so I decided to make my own. It went together so easily and turned out beautifully, so I’m offering a workshop on Friday October 19th at 6:30 for anyone who lives locally. A $5 materials fee will cover the cost of everything needed to make this page. As a bonus, I’ll provide FREE printed instructions for a companion page and a complete list of materials needed so that you can complete the 2nd page on your own. Space is limited for this workshop, so RSVP right away to reserve your spot!


Gable Box

Welcome to day 2 of Artiste in August. You should have arrived here from Jessica Wilson’s page. If not, don’t worry just follow the link below to the next stop on the blog hop. You’ll find a complete list of participants and their links at the end in case you get lost along the way.

Today’s project is the gable box found on page 37 of the Artiste handbook.


I cut it from Cocoa cardstock using the fit to page option (4 1/4”). Next I did some random stamping in versamark ink with the August Stamp of the Month, Baroque Borders and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I did it in 2 sections so that the versamark wouldn’t dry before I got the powder on. Putting the box together was super easy. No adhesive needed, it’s all tabs and slots….easy, peasy! I embellished the box with chocolate striped ribbon, slate mini medleys and a foundry ribbon slide.

Everyday I’m loving Artiste more, and the collection is a great value! In addition to the cartridge it comes with 3 all new exclusive stamp sets that coordinate with cuts on the cartridge and 3 sheets of coordinating Dimensional Elements chipboard shapes. That’s a $125 value for $99! You can order now by clicking here.

Now head on over to Amy Edwards blog, and be sure to come back tomorrow for more Artiste inspiration.

Mojo Monday….on Tuesday!

As the new year begins and I start considering setting new goals, I have decided that this year I will challenge myself creatively by participating in some challenges and contests. First up is a Mojo Monday challenge.

I made this thank you card using some paper that I had left from the You & Me National Scrapbooking Month kit from Close To My Heart, of course! Smile. The shapes were all cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and the flowers were stamped with coordinating stamps in the Hooray Bouquet set (C1491). The sentiment is from Thoughtful Tidings (S1202), the February stamp of the month. You’re getting a little sneak peek today! The flower centers are embellished with a Canvas Badge Button (Z1397) and Mocha Opaques Gems (Z1333). The ink colors that I chose are Crème Brulee (Z2167), Olive (Z2137), Cocoa (Z2114)and Chocolate (Z2111). I made the card base from Colonial White cardstock and matted with Cocoa cardstock. I inked the edges of some of the pieces and added Cocoa grosgrain ribbon (Z1100) and some faux stitching with a white gel pen. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. Now to write a note in it and send it off to a special recipient.

Please feel free to comment and let me know what you think of my first challenge entry!

Have a blessed day!
