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!

Steampunk Halloween Easel Card

One of my favorite stamp sets out of the new Holiday Expressions catalog is the Steampunk Scoundrels!  I used it and the Nevermore paper to create this Halloween easel card.  I created a steampunk gear moon and glued a stack of paper gears together to create the 3D gear to hold the easel card open.  It was really a fun card to make.

Mission in March Pocket Scrapbooking Layout

I love the new Picture My Life pocket scrapbooking cards!  The cards have the same design on both sides except that one is portrait and one is landscape so no matter which direction you need you can still use the design that you want for your layout. 
This layout is made using the new Through the Year PML kit.  I think it turned out so cute and, of course, so quick and easy!

Supplies used (click on each item to view it on my website):

Welcome Autumn Card

I was playing with CTMH's new watercolor paper and paints, so fun, and water coloring fall leaves seems like a very natural thing so that is why I came up with this card.  I used the new CTMH Artistry cartridge to cut the title and leaves for this card.  It is made using the Nevermore papers.  We made this at my Card Making Workshop this month and everyone seemed to have a great time coloring all their leaves different colors, I even saw some Seahawk leaves, LOL!

Nevermore paper collection
Colonial White cardstock
Sunset cardstock

Pumpkin Carving Layout

I used the Nevermore papers for our pumpkin carving pictures which, of course, is very appropriate for Halloween pictures, but I think it was the Nevermore Complements that were so much fun to use!  I used Liquid Glass to adhere the clear embellishments, I think they are so cute!


Batty For Halloween Layout

This layout is made using the Nevermore paper collection and the Nevermore Complements to finish up pumpkin patch pictures which were so fun to use!  I love how the layout turned out!
