CTMH No Worries P1&2I added the Happy Thoughts embossing folder to the tan pieces on the far right and left of each page.

I also used the Edge Distresser on the grey woodgrain piece.

Card Club–Waterfalls & Revolving Doors

“Waterfalls and Revolving Doors, what are those?”  I’m so glad you asked, because those are the cards that we are making at next month’s Card Club,
Thursday, June 22 from 6:30-9:30pm.

Card Club 06 - CTMH Little Dreamer (1)

I have really been interested in creating “moveable or interactive” cards this year. So I pulled out my Magic How-To-Book. 

Magic

This book was created for scrapbooking pages with different types of interactive elements, but you can easily transpose them for use on cards as well.

Card Club 06 - CTMH Little Dreamer (4)

One of my favorites is the waterfall technique.

Waterfall Ice Cream Cone

It looks really impressive and complicated, but once you learn the steps it’s easy to replicate.

Card Club 06 - CTMH Little Dreamer (8)

As you can see I couldn’t stop with just one.  This card would look great with a name on it too, a short one of course.

Waterfall LOVE Card

I also made a card with a revolving door.

Card Club 06 - CTMH Little Dreamer (3)

Simply spin the spinner on top to reveal another saying. 

Card Club 06 - CTMH Little Dreamer (2)

I couldn’t stop with just 3 cards so I added one more using the June stamp of the month, Hello Foxy.

Card Club 06 - CTMH Little Dreamer (12)

Cutting diagrams, patterns and instructions will be shared with all class attendees and those purchasing a kit.

Who wants to join us in learning to make Waterfall and Revolving Door handmade greeting cards?  If you aren't local or can't come to the class, I can mail you a kit that will include my cutting diagrams, instructions, and pictures. 

Thursday, June 22 from 6:30-9:30pm

Cost is $25 to make 8 cards (2 each of 4 designs) 

Register by Monday, June 12th

Since complements were not created to accompany this paper collection I choose to use up some older packs like the Sugar Rush and Hello Lovely complements.  (Sugar Rush Complements are no longer available.)

Card Club–Live Beautifully

May is National Scrapbooking Month and Close To My Heart always creates a paper packet sometimes with a coordinating stamp set.  This year it’s called Live Beautifully and it’s available ONLY during the month of May.

1705-cc-nsm-paper-packet-stamp

CTMH asked Consultant, Jacquie Paech, to design a card workshop to share with all consultants.  So this is my May Card Workshop.

Sunday, May 21 from 2-5pm

Card Club 05 - CTMH Live Beautifully (1)

The workshop creates 20 cards total (2 each of 10 designs) and I added a bonus Father’s Day card.

Card Club 05 - CTMH Live Beautifully (5)

Of course you can’t forget to add a little shimmer like I did to the heart in this picture.

This kit is beautiful, but I realized that Father’s Day would be after this class so my attendees might need to make one of those.  So here’s my bonus Father’s Day card using the new Jack-Cardmaking stamp set (Z3333). [How cute is that bear?]

Card Club 05 - CTMH Live Beautifully (13)

Cutting diagrams, patterns and instructions will be shared with all class attendees and those purchasing a kit.
