CTMH 2014 Convention Digital Layout

This was the 12th Close To My Heart Convention that I had attended.  How could I not go when it was at the Disneyland Hotel, one of my favorite places!  It was a great convention and I used the Heartstrings digital paper collection to create the layouts.  I just love all the fun embellishments available in this collection!  To create your own Studio J digital layouts click here.

Fall Scene Card

I am having so much fun with the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge, I just love some of the more intricate cards, first of all because they are so easy as they are already set up and second because they are so cute when they are finished!  This is one of the Scene cards and I thought the Sangria papers would be perfect with this one.  I did create this on Design Space so I could get it the size I wanted and also to add the grass, flowers and the deer and bunny image.  The deer and bunny aren't made specifically to go over the top of this scene card, I just played around with it until it as close enough.

The other fun thing that I did, was that I took the new Coral Shimmer Trim and put a piece over the bird in the branches and then trimmed it from the back side so that the bird stands out more.  Pretty cute!

Mini Stamp Organizer

I just got my first Mini Stamp Organizer.  It is a brand new product from CTMH.  I just love organizing products and this is just perfect for my collection of M size stamps that I have.  They have been in a regular size stamp organizer and this is so much better!  Even the new Instalife Roller Stamps fit perfectly in it!  It just makes me happy!

CTMH Convention Instalife Mini Album

My husband gave me a challenge this year when I went to my CTMH convention which was to send him pictures of me having fun, it's something I struggle with sometimes.  Anyway, I really did have fun and I ended up having fun taking the pictures and getting other consultants to join in on my challenge. 

This year a new product was introduced, it is super adorable, it is a mini album with sheet protectors for 4x4 and 2x2 photos.  I decided to take all those photos and put them in this one book.  It was super easy to do (I used an Express Collection layout on Studio J for the pictures, just drag and drop, so easy).  Super cute and super fun!  I will definitely be making more of these!
