June 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Oldest Paper

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Debi Barber’sBlog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.

This month we are pulling out some of our oldest Close to My Heart paper.

Supplies used: CTMH Between Friends Level 1, CTMH Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems, CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Petaloo Color Me Crazy Flowers, and Desert Sand ink.

This is among the oldest paper that I have.  I think I purchased it on clearance in my first days as a consultant.  Even though it’s old, the diecuts (not even stickers!) are going to work well for some teen girl pages.

Now hop on over to Michelle West’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.

If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on my previous post.

Stamp Sunday #19 – Take a Picture

C1440 Take a Picture


Supplies used are all CTMH unless noted: Take a Picture Stamp Set, Topstitch Paper Packet (retired), Heavenly Blue ink, Baby Pink ink, Chocolate ink, Cocoa Ribbon (retired), Basic Brads Assortment, Designer Pewter Brads, Brown Stazon ink,  and Petaloo Color Me Crazy Flowers.

I thought of this stamp set right away when I pulled out this picture!  It was the perfect match and lots of fun to use with many different options.  I used it for the title, journaling, corners, and embellishing.  My favorite part of this page is the stamping on the flower.  I used the small flourish in the set and it was the perfect touch to the plain flower.

Miranda Layout



Supplies used: Unknown papers from my stash, Petaloo Flowers, CTMH Keepsake Alphabet, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH Cocoa ink, CTMH Twinkle Brads (retired).

I created the two-tone title by first inking the letter with Cotton Candy ink, then I used a sponge dauber to apply Cocoa ink to the bottom part of the letter, then stamped.

I bought these window markers for a rainy day but the kids love them and the weather doesn’t really matter.  It is easy to wash off and they are always so proud of their artwork.
