Supplies (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Tinkerin’ paper, Rustic Alphabet stamp set, inks, badge buttons, Liquid Glass, Imagine, and unknown ribbon.
I added Liquid Glass to the top of my stamped letters for the title. It was a good choice for a wet/water theme.

Products used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Evensong Level 2 Paper Packet, Evergreen stamp set, Chocolate Alphabet Large, Evensong Stickease, Cranberry Ribbon Round, Liquid Glass, Holiday Fabric Tags, Jolee’s dimensional stickers by EK Success, and Kaisercraft Pearls.
I started these layouts before Christmas using the Evensong Workshop on the Go guides. Then I made more pages with the paper that was left. Today I finished them up by adding pictures, journaling, and embellishments. I had to take the Santa and reindeer sticker apart to make it fit the way I wanted. It originally came to be adhered up/down the long way. I wanted mine to go across the top of the page. In order to make it work I took the middle reindeer off the reins and turned it around. I cut the reins in the middle because they were too long and hid the seam under the middle reindeer. It worked great. The only thing I regret is not taking the entire sticker off the backing. You can see how the middle reindeer doesn’t have the transparent sticker behind it. I just added my own adhesive and I think it looks much nicer. I didn’t notice it until it was already down and then there was no way it was going to come off nicely so it’s staying where it is and I’m calling it done.
Something I like to do is try to use up an entire paper packet. I did that with the Evensong paper after I made my layouts by making the cards HERE. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment to use it all up and it is also amazing just how much you can get out of one paper pack.
These are my first layouts of the year so I am starting at 5 of 210 for 2010!

Products used: DCWV The Spring II Mat Stacks, K&Company Rub-on Magic, CTMH Liquid Glass, CTMH White Daisy Ricrac, unknown snaps and vellum Thank You sticker.
I started off using the Sunday sketch at 365 cards and this is what I ended up with. I wanted stitching around the edges but didn’t have the right thread. Then I started handstitching and that was just too much work! So I ended up with piercing around the border and snaps in the corners (to cover up where I started stitching. I was originally thinking to use pop dots on the flowers but the liquid glass added the dimension that I wanted.

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend. I know I sure did! I don’t have much time to scrap this week but I was able to get this layout done today. I used Liquid Glass to apply the fiber around the edges of the flower. For the center and the swirl I twisted two different fibers together and again applied with the Liquid Glass.
Products used: Rhonna Farrer paper, CTMH Just Bloom flowers, CTHM Sweet Leaf ink, CTMH Liquid Glass, Cricut Lyrical Letters cartridge, and fiber from my stash.

Welcome to another Close to My Heart blog hop! Along this hop you will be visiting 29 very talanted CTMH Consultants as they give you a sneak peak of some of the new products available in the CTMH Fall/Winter 2009 Idea Book as well as a great variety of ideas for using those products and more! New products will be available starting September 1st!
I have been wanting to do a book like this for my daughter who is 10. This new album was just the push I needed to get it done! If you notice on the front cover one of the flower centers looks like it has a little something extra – that’s because it does. I really like these new spiral brads and just added a second spiral to give it more emphasis. I used liquid glass on all the numbers and letters. It really brightened the stamping. With doing so much at once I noticed two things: 1. I didn’t have one single bubble! and 2. that’s a lot of squeezing and my hand is really sore! I inked around all the edges when I was finished. It helps covers the flaws and really added a nice finishing touch. One thing I am going to go back and do is use my Made with Love stamp set to add a stamp to the back that will be perfect for this project.
Products used are all CTMH: My Creations All-Sorts Mini Album, Sweet Home Level 2 Paper Packet, Just Blooms White Daisy Variety Pack Paper Flowers, Mini-Medley Accents Collection (Pewter), Liquid Glass, Rustic Alphabet & Rustic Numbers stamp sets, Soft Set Eyelet Tool & Soft Set Eyelets (Chocolate), Dimensional Elements Framed Fun, Foam Tool (to apply ink), Connection Club Reward Adhesive-Backed Pearls, Buttercup Collection Ribbon Rounds, and Garnet ink.
