Fall is in the Air

Look at this, 2 posts in a row. Hard to imagine that a few years ago I posted daily and now I'm lucky if I do more than once a week! LOL. Perhaps you will be seeing more around here as I absolutely love making fall, winter and Christmas cards best.

Today I am using all new CTMH goodies which will be available in just a few short days. Lots of fun stuff will be available.

I love the new layered leaf dies.

The plaid paper from the new Mix In paper pack had me.

Inspired By.... a note to you

The new Inspired By challenge is up and not only do I love the theme (I'm all about stationary supplies) but the colors are pretty too.

I pulled out the colors and sort of the theme... gave me an excuse to combine some older (like the notebook die and star stamp) and new (available in September) CTMH goodies (paper and sentiment stamps)

Now come on over and play along:

Gearing up for fall....

Some new goodies arrived in the mail the other day and I had to play with them. All of these things (stamps and dies)here will be available in the new CTMH catalogue.

I decided to get a start on fall, I love fall. What about you?

I really love the background die it will be fun to fill it with little stamps and such. Today I am using it just to add texture to my cards.

The new Layered Leaf die is a must if you like creating things with leaves. It is perfect! I paired it up with a SOTM and another new stamp. Stay tuned. 

What is fall without pumpkin spice? I love the new stamp and die set and that plaid paper. I'm always  a sucker for plaid. The pumpkin stamp had to come home to me too, because leaves, pumpkins and acorns.... love them all!

Inspired By Nautical Party

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and it makes me feel so happy.

I was inspired by the colors and the 'party' theme. I pulled out some old Elle's Studio papers (perfect aren't they?) and paired it with some CTMH stamps and dies.

Just my usual, lots of layers, stitching and twine :) 

Now hop on over to see what the design team have created.

A Hello to brighten your day

Look at me... another card to share - I hope this pattern continues :)

I knew that when I received my new CTMH goodies (Available in September) I had to create a card or something with them as they were so perfect for the Inspired By Challenge don't you think?

I just layered the papers, dies and a stamp. The colors are so pretty!

Don't forget to play along:

A couple of kids birthday cards

What? A post and it isn't Thursday? Yep finally got some crafty time that wasn't just for an assignment and was just for fun. It has been awhile (though I have been working on my Project Life, Fitness Journal and Project 12 albums, just haven't posted pics.)

Anyways dug into some retired CTMH - I used most of it, now the rest will be for my grand daugher :)

I am building my stash of kids cards both for me and now since my grand daughter is going to Kindergarten, she will need some.

First up I flipped the sketch of Freshly Made Sketches to create this simple card. Not much to say just some simple layering and fussy cutting. The dinosaur is mounted on foam squares.

Next up since The Paper Players called for a CAS kids card I went with that. The main panel is mounted on foam strips and the bear (Studio Katia) is mounted on foam circles.

Inspired By.... ice cream

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and it inspired me to create this 'cool' card. 

I pulled out the ice cream from the photo and went with that. All of the supplies are from CTMH (love that circle die... it is new!) except the ice cream cone die, it is from Reverse Confetti.

I taped off and inked a few different stamp sets to create the sentiment. One of which I cut apart and adhered down the side. I die cut the sentiment using a retired CTMH die. 

Now come on over and see what the others have created.

Inspired By... Back to School

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and it inspired me to create a school themed card. I love creating school themed items. My grand daughter starts Kindergarten this year so I made this for her and will give her some goodies to go along with it.

All of the paper and stamps are from CTMH. I used my Silhouette to cut out the images and a background die from Reverse Confetti.

Inspired By...the sea

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired to create this card. All of the papers are from CTMH but I pulled out an old PTI stamp set and was pretty literal with the inspiration. The fun die is from La-La-Land.

Now come on over and play along.
