New Alcohol Markers

I have to admit that I have never been fond of coloring stamps, until now.  With our new alcohol markers they make coloring so much fun.  I hope to have some artwork to share with you soon, but in the meantime I hope that you enjoy this video on how to use our new alcohol markers.

Also, stay tuned for an upcoming class featuring our new alcohol markers.

National Stamping Month is September and we are celebrating early

I just love CTMH promotions and this is a great one.  Did you know that September is National Stamping Month?  Well at CTMH we are celebrating early with another double stamp set promotion.  Take a look at my page "Monthly Specials" for all of the details and watch this video for some ideas.

I plan to create a project with this stamp set and offer it as a class in October.  I hope you will plan to join us.

Scrapbooking Club features Clementine

I am so excited to begin using the new collections in our Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.  Here is a look at what we are creating in September using the New Clementine collection.
At this workshop you will learn how to make cardstock look like leather.  That's right - on the 2nd page the Saddle pieces of cardstock have been sprizted, crumpled, sanded, and inked.  It sounds like it's difficult but it's really easy. 

I really love the new Cottage Assortment that comes in the kit.  They are layered fabric flowers, with buttons on top.  Underneath the button is our new Burlap Ribbon.  I was not excited about this product when I first saw it, but boy is it CUTE.  I just love the look that it creates on each of the pages.  Here's a closer look.

And, everyone loves Flip Flaps and we now have them even smaller.  This new smaller assortment comes with Flip Flaps in 4 sizes - 2x2, 3x3, 3x4, 4x4.  I used the 2x2 ones on the first 2 pages and it worked perfectly to add pictures of everyone's goodie bag from past retreats.

Remember if you aren't local, I can put together a kit for you with directions. 

If you are local, I hope you will join us in September for the monthly Scrapbooking Club that meets in my studio in Amelia, VA on the following dates:

Saturday, September 15 from 2-5pm
Sunday, September 16 from 2-5pm
Registration ends Monday, August 27
Cost varies, but begins at just $16 (which includes a full level 2 paper packet with 12 sheets of paper). You can check out the Workshop On The Go kit here and see a picture of the exclusive stamp set.
Also, you don't want to miss out on the Cottage Assortment, Burlap Ribbon, and Flip Flaps that I added to these pages. I just love these new embellishments!

Email me or place your order online to register today!
If you aren't local and can't make it to the workshop that's okay too. I'll put together a kit for you with my cutting instructions and detailed directions on putting the pages together on your own.

1st Semi-Annual Team Scrap-Along

I held my 1st Semi-Annual Team Scrap-Along this past Saturday and it was a huge success.  The event was for consultants in my 1st - 3rd downline.  We discussed some helpful business tips, news from Convention, and of course made some cards. 

I have always wanted to participate in a Stamp of the Month card swap and now I was able to coordinate one of my own.  We completed cards using 4 of the 6 upcoming Stamp of the Months.  You'll have to check back each month to see the artwork we created when each Stamp of the Month comes around.

You too can join us in February for my next Team Scrap-Along by becoming a part of my team.  I absolutely love my job and would love to share this opportunity with you.  This month you can receive the Exclusive Damask Tote Bag for free when you become a new Consultant.  Click here to lean more and join my team.
