Holiday Hoopla -- Jingle, A Christmas Card

Several sources of inspiration on this one...went to the bookstore yesterday and purchased A Card A I'm overloaded with ideas. How wonderful to have all these artists willing to share their work! I'm very grateful.

I used CTMH Jingle paper, and the Holiday Hoopla stamp set, a little glitter pen, white gel pen,and some 3d tape. Hard to see, but the star has glitter pen added, along with some glitter here and there throughout the pink polka dot paper. Enjoy!

Tri-Shutter Card - Twitterpated Paper

I was inspired by a card I saw on the CTMH consultant board. Here's what I came up with, and will use this next weekend at my workshop. This paper is one of those that looks SO much better spread out on the table, rather than in the book! This particular fold is perfect for the paper pkgs that have all the coordinating papers. Love that!!! Now, I've got to make a bunch of sample Christmas gift tags -- that's the other project the group will be doing. As always, thanks for stopping by!

If you're not already familiar with this fold, you can access directions at: (make sure you double ck the cutting instructions!)

9x9 Scrapbook - Animal Cookies

Funny that on World Card Making Day, I'm posting a scrapbook. Especially since those of you who know me...know I prefer card making! Well, my daughter and I worked on this project yesterday for a baby shower today. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. This is an accordian 9x9 scrapbook. Almost all of the supplies are from Close To My Heart. Not sure if I should be embarrassed that I had everything we needed on hand! =) I did photograph each individual page -- if you want to see anything close up, just drop me a note. Hope you enjoy looking!
