Dreamin' Paper Packet, Harvest Happiness & Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

I have been so anxious to play with every single one of our new CTMH paper packets! It's great because it has really motivated me to create the monthly pages for my Year of Memories clubs really early.

Here is our November page featuring the beautiful Dreamin' paper packet. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the leaves at 2.5 to fit the Bohemian Alphabet letters, the little acorns are from the Harvest Happiness stamp set and the cartridge has an image of those you can cut to make it ever so easy to put those little cuties all over the place. Oh yes...I almost forgot the Harvest Mini Charms!

More Sonoma Workshop on the Go creations!

The Flutter Paper Shapes butterflies above were were colored with a Smokey Plum ink pad; using a marker, a CTMH Round Sponge, stamped with the back side of a My Acrylix stamp and lastly saturated in a bit of water and re-inker.

In a post below I mentioned that I would be using every bit of this beautiful kit and these cards are part of the fun I've been having with it. I used the cracked glass embossing technique. All the stamps are from the Sonoma Workshop on the Go set. Colors are Smokey Plum, Olive and Colonial White.
This card is an example of emboss resist technique.

This one is an example of regular embossing with white powder. The decorative strip in between papers is one of the features of our new papers.

Sonoma Workshop on the Go

This is out of order because I had some trouble adding photos the last couple of weeks but fortunately a new router took care of that! Here's the September page for my Year of Memories Club. I used the Sonoma Workshop on the Go kit and coordinating inks with some added Flutter Just Blooms Paper Shapes. The kit comes with this gorgeous stamp set and the vintage Pewter Mini Medleys. I will be using every last bit of these supplies and can't wait to try the stamp set with some other color combos.

Sharing From the Heart: CTMH August Blog Hop

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my very first spot in a blog hop! If I've pulled this off correctly you have just visited Romain's amazing blog and hopped over here.

My first item is a layout featuring the August Stamp of the Month "Wicked". The ladies in my club want to learn about the Rubber Brayer soon and one of the things you can do with it is a reverse image. I thought the little kitty seeing itself in a mirror would be cute and the Midnight Felt Shapes have an oval that made a perfect frame.

Here's what I used, it's all Close to My Heart -

Mischief Paper
Chocolate Alphabet Small Stamp Set
Bohemian Alphabet
Midnight Felt Shapes

Thanks for stopping by now you can hop on over to Nicole's blog for some more treats for your eyes!

Here's the entire list on the hop just in case:
