Celebrate with CTMH Elemental

Hey everyone - hope you are having a great summer.  I'm back from CTMH Convention in Dallas, followed by a week of holidays with the family . . . trying to get back into the swing of things & back creating again.  I have so many new goodies in my craft room - can't wait to start playing!  

I'm still working on the big memory keeping project for my grandparents' 60th anniversary as well (I originally blogged about that HERE).   The anniversary is now less than 2 weeks away - so I'm getting down to the wire.  I've created over 70 two-page layouts in Studio J for an album I'll be presenting to my grandparents as a gift.  Will be sharing some of those here on the blog in the coming weeks - so watch for that!  I can't say enough good things about Studio J and how great it is for scrapbooking a big project like this!   I never would have been able to compile so many pictures & memories in such a short time if I were doing a traditional album.  Another great thing is that I can order copies of the pages from CTMH for any family members who wish to have this great collection of family memories in their own homes.   Now that the album pages have been ordered, I'm working on the slide show for the reception which I'm co-MC'ing with my cousin Wendy.   I so hope that my grandparents enjoy this walk down memory lane . . .

Thought it was probably about time I shared some new artwork with you.  This past weekend we had a birthday party for my Dad - here is the card I created for him.

I find that simple is always better when creating masculine cards & layouts.  This card was inspired by a card I saw HERE created by Dena Hughes, a fellow CTMH consultant.

My card is 5x7 size.  The corrugated stars are part of the CTMH Milepost Shapes collection of corrugated kraft embellishments.  The blue star and bracket sentiment block were cut the with CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The sentiment stamp set is one of the great sets that comes included in the Art Philosophy Cricut collection. The paper is the soon to be retired Elemental pack (available until July 31st).   Ink: Pacifica & Cranberry.  Cardstock: Kraft, Colonial White, Pacifica.  Sparkle: Red/Pink/Purple Collection.

Have a great rest of the day :-)


  1. I love simple, too. Your card is perfect.

  2. What a great card Carla. I think kraft is a perfect color for masculine cards.

    Good luck getting the rest of the big project done. What an awesome gift and keepsake.
