Everyday Celebration and Perfect Day!


As promised, here is what I have done using the Everyday Celebration guide.  I used the same cutting diagrams and instructions to make these cards but I changed it up by using different paper (Perfect Day) and a different stamp set (Life’s Creation).  I used sorbet ribbon and chocolate brads as my embellishments.  You can see that the possibilities are endless and if you like this you really need to check out the new CTMH Card Confidence Program: Wishes which includes 3 card workshops similar to this one and many more card sketches and ideas!

And again, here are the cards individually for a closer look:








Everyday Celebration!

This is the current special for CTMH! From now until September 31 (or while supplies last) you receive this kit FREE with a purchase of $60 in stamps or you can purchase it outright for $39.95.  I love the colors in this kit because they are going to be perfect for all those male birthdays that I have such a hard time making cards for! Here is a picture of all the completed cards together (2 each of 8 different designs):


The kit includes: an instruction guide that tells you exactly how to cut your paper and stamp your images as well as detailed instructions on how to assemble each card, B&T paper and cardstock, an exclusive stamp set, Chocolate distressing ink pad, Dutch Blue distressing ink pad, embellishments (ribbon, brads, flowers, arrow photo clips, ribbon slides) and 16 envelopes.  I have completed all the cards exactly as designed in the guide (except I only inked the edges of the colonial white pieces – it suggests inking the edges of all the pieces but I really didn’t think that was necessary).  Below is a picture of what I had remaining after I was finished (excluding smaller scraps that I threw away).  It’s enough to make a few more cards or a scrapbook page by added some cardstock.


And for those of you who like a closer view here are pictures of all the cards individually:

I will be taking the weekend off but be sure to check back on Monday for a whole new look for this card kit.  You won’t even recognize it and you will be amazed!
