Help Design My New Space and WIN!

I'm excited to be moving to a new house this weekend and my new scrap space is a complete blank canvas! I'd love your help in putting it together, so send your ideas and suggestions here or to my facebook page.


The desk you see in the pic is the only one I have that fits through the door of this space. The space is a partially-finished attic, built on the second floor of the home. It's heated so will simply need a window air conditioner for the spring and summer. 

I have 3 shelf units I plan to utilize, including one that is a wire unit that is fully adjustable. I plan to get a folding table for my Cricut and all that it needs.

Let your ideas flow! When my room is finished, I'll draw a name from the contributors and that person will win some wonderful CTMH products! 

I'll post pics as I work on the space.

Artbooking Meets Pemberley

I had a bunch of papers left from the since-retired Pemberley paper pack and this week, I paired these papers with my new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, making an 8" mini-album!

Take a look!






I cut all images you see with the Artbooking Cartridge, except for 2 strips of stickease from the Pemberley line. I just have to add my pictures and this book is ready for gift-giving, keeping at home or for one of my kids to use! I love the ease and simplicity of the Artbooking Cartridge! If you don't have yours yet, I can't imagine what you're waiting for!

Fun with Cricut Artbooking

I did a layout today using the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge. I'm hooked! Take a look:


I might do some edging with ink on these pages, but I can't decide.


I like things clean and simple so the focus will be on my pics. 


I can't wait to put my grand daughter, Joy's, pics on these pages! When I add pics, I will finish with any additional embellishments I want to do.

Thanks for looking!

Tru-Fit Folios + Flip Flaps = WoW Layout!

Recently, my grandson was at a special Scout event and my daughter sent me pics via email. I was so excited to see him in his uniform and see his friends and his smiling face! I practically had the prints made the same day and got ready to make scrapbook layouts with them. I wanted to keep them all together in a special way in my album, so I used a Tru-Fit Folio to group the pictures all together. I used our Flip-Flaps in two sizes - 4" x 6" and 6" x 6" to make sure I could use every photo she sent. I used CTMH's Elemental paper pack, one of our retired packs. CTMH's paper packs are timeless and never go out of style.

Enjoy!
This is how the layout looks at first glance.

This is how the layout looks with the 6" x 6" Flip Flap open.


This is the layout with the Tru-Fit Folio opened and the 4" x 6" Flip Flap open on the side.

Thanks for looking!
