CTMH May Special, You & Me Kit, Norah's First Thanksgiving

Here's little Norah's first Thanksgiving pictures. When I first saw the May CTMH special You & Me kit I thought, hey I think those polka dots match the turkey I cut out a couple months ago on my Cricut using the Create a Critter cartridge...and did match! The turkey is cut out of Bamboo, Smoothie, Cocoa and Honey cardstock. I added dots to his first layer of feathers using the period from the small Chocolate Alphabet set. The You & Me kit comes with instructions for two layouts but I switched it up a bit, by doing that I was able to use the polka dot paper to make 3 different 12x12 layouts! I also used some B&T paper from our Mayberry kit. You will be seeing a few more items from this very nice kit--I'm streeeetchiiiiinng it as far as possible because I like it so much, at least it's nice to have a stamp set to use and use and use even though the rest of the kit supplies will run out.

Sophia Workshop On the Go Stamp Set

Here's a card I made using Sky & Cotton Candy Cardstock & Ink and the stamp set from the Sophia Workshop On the Go. I've had the ribbon around for who knows how long and of couse on the box are three of the fun flowers made with our scallop punch. I love the sayings You are so, and you can do Wonderful, Kind and Amazing. As soon as I saw the bird I knew I had to have it, and the flourish stamp in this set is one of the most pretty I've ever seen .

May...Pages, Project & Stamp of the Month

Here's the hostess club pages and project for this month. I decided on a box instead of a bag and if I do say so myself I think it's pretty nice. I really love the April Stamp of the month-Blessed and I'm looking forward to trying it out in some different colors although I always have loved this combo for just about anything. I used Pear, Gypsy, Sky and Heavenly Blue paper & ink. Our technique as planned was making our own B & T paper---the spray pen made it extra fun! I added a surprise technique...making paper carnations...I LOVE making them...oh so easy and they look fab(u-lous)! Just for kicks I thought I would show my first prototype layout. I was just not happy with it at first and as you can see I exchanged a couple of the Gypsy pieces with White Daisy and it really brightened things up...exactly what it needed for the bold summer colors. First prototype...

Don't you agree this one is better?

Here are the boxes everyone can choose to do whatever one they like the best-
