CTMH Seaside paper - going soon...

This past weekend I met up with some local CTMH demo's to have a sneak peak of the new catty's coming out shortly.  One of the local ladies from Toronto had attended convention in Anaheim last week so she was going to be in town attending Bluesfest to see Keith Urban and wanted to share her knowledge and show us the goodies she received.   She's the lady in the glasses photobombing our CTMH family photo!!!  Crazy girls!
 Julie (Grandma), Diana (sister), Me (sister) & Dominique (Mum - Upline) 
I must say... this is the best part of being on a CTMH team... is thefriends you meet.... this weekend was no different.. I finally met people I had known from our Facebook groups...but never met in person..... what a cool bunch of gals!!!

We had around 15 ladies show up during the day at our hosts Wendy's 'beach house'.....Wendy's house was amazing and tranquil.... inspired me to use the WOTG Seaside paper pack that I recently ordered before it's gone.  So...I challenged myself to think outside my usual box of scrapping and create a simple card.

Gold embossing!!!!!!!! you have to see it... subtle but sleek!!!

Next I'll work on a scrapbook page.... in my element  :)

Paper:  Seaside WOTG G1089 (Glacier, Colonial White)
Stamps: Happy Everything D1653, Doodled Designs A1170

Creative Catch-up! Masculine Card

Where have I been I hear you say???   Well...back at the end of March I started back at work...... even though I've still been creating... it's not been as consistent as I'd like....So......posting to my blog had fallen off my to do list.   I decided to take this week off work and just organize and get creative for the week.   Hopefully I can catch up with my blog and entice you to craft with me..... CTMH has some cute product coming out soon.


In April was my hubby's birthday so I whipped together a card...I used this card as my inspiration.
I always find masculine cards hard to do seems I own a lot of girly stamps....I brought this Robot stamp set just before it retired last year.... I love ROBOTS!!!

Can you see that I heat embossed the Robot first... I just love embossing just gives it a professional finish.  

I hand cut the red flags...
