Well, I have been looking through a lot of challenges lately and I always like a challenge, particularly sketches, to boost my mojo. I was sitting here reading blogs (instead of scrapbooking) and came across this week’ s Mojo Monday card. I’ve wanted to do one of these for quite some time so what better time than the present. I checked the time zones and figured out I had an hour and a half yet to post it. I also had a pile of scraps just waiting to be transformed into a card. With that said, here is my quick card:
Products used: Tinkerin’ paper & Stickease, ricrac, white daisy cardstock, and Little Boys stamp set (all by CTMH).
We just made it back from Disneyland last weekend and before we left I was determined to finish my book from our last vacation to Walt Disney World in (gulp) 2005! Alas, it is finished and here they are. Be on the lookout for new layouts from our recent trip to Disneyland!
I found it was easiest and quickest for this project to use a set of coordinating papers for most of the pages. You can see how I did that below. The paper is a retired CTMH paper pack.
Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring June’s SOTM, which is called Tender Tags, a set of 15 stamps.
This month we have 42 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month’s SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do – just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!

For a standout title, try using large monogram letters for your entire title. I used Basic Grey undressed chipboard monograms for these layouts. (Note: chipboard that is plain and unfinished is often called undressed, bare, or naked.) For extra letters, you can trace on chipboard and cut them out. Next, I traced the letters on cardstock, cut out, embellished, and glued to the chipboard. Be sure to embellish the letters before adhering to the chipboard. The ways to embellish these monograms are endless. You can use buttons, brads, eyelets, snaps, rivets, charms, ribbon, fiber, clips, staples, tags, diecuts, etc. You can also use techniques such as stamping, stitching, inking, distressing, doodling, etc. My favorite adhesive when using chipboard is Liquid Glass by CTMH. There is a bit of drying time involved but it will hold forever!
