Oldie but just FOUND!

Going through some older posts I enjoy on Jeanette's blog I came across some photos from the Dallas 2012 Convention.  How exciting to see my face smiling back at me!

It was a wonderful time and our smiles show how much we love being with our fellow CTMH sisters.

For my project using the CTMH Home Sweet Home Stamp of the Month and the paper packet called Clementine and some new amazing products from the new Idea Book for Spring/Summer 2013 I created 2 wall signs. 




For the top sign I used the Pigment inks in Saddle and Twilight to create the stamped image on the chipboard. For the details I used the beautiful Clementine Complements Canvas Shapes and the NEW Wooden Mini-Medley Accents. 











 
In this photo you can see the details even on the mini-clothespins! So cute!

 

 On this second sign I made a photo mat using the Clementine Papers and more of the Canvas Shapes.

Stuido J Layouts from Maine

Last month my family and I went on a small vacation north to Maine.  We had such a nice time!  We were able to do some great things and I wanted to share my StudioJ layouts. 



The top 3 layouts are part of the NEW Studio J Express Collections.  The layouts were complete, title and all and the only things I had to do were drag and drop my photos and add my journaling!!
 
 

 
I still enjoy making my own custom layouts though on StudioJ!
 
 
Check it out today at www.pieceandpaper.ctmh.com >Products>Studio J!
