February Card Workshop

The workshop dates are: Sunday, February 6th at 1:00 p.m. OR Monday, February 7th at 6:30 p.m.

(yes, I realize that the 6th is Super Bowl Sunday, but I was waiting until I saw what happened with the Bears to see if I could schedule it on that day. Since the Bears lost, I thought it was ok to go ahead and schedule it for that day, plus the workshop is at 1, so it gives you time to still make it home for the game/parties).

We will be making a few Valentines cards using the new Sweetheart papers and stamps from the Spring/Summer CTMH catalog that will be available to you starting February 1st. We will also be embellishing a tube of m&m's. Along with the Valentines themed cards, we will be making
a card using the new Wings paper, stamps, etc. and the February Stamp of the Month, Friendship. If you'd rather not use the Valentines sayings, I have other sayings that can be used for birthdays, etc.

The January SOTM, Find Your Style has been quite popular, but will not be available after January 31st, so if you wish to get this stamp set, you have to do so by Jan. 31st. You can contact me via email, or you can visit my website Pictures and details can be found here on my blog. Also, be sure to look at my post titled Inspirations. There are details about discounted Wings products during the month of January.

*There will be a bonus to coming to this workshop...since the new catalog is going live on February 1st, you will receive a free CTMH Spring/Summer Catalog. It is gorgeous! There are 8 new paper packs, along with a nice variety of stamp sets/embellishments to match. I can't wait for you to see it!

Please rsvp no later than Thursday, Feb. 3rd to let me know if you plan on attending. As usual, the workshops are the same on both dates, they are just being offered on 2 dates to help accommodate your schedule. The cost of the workshop is $5, which is refundable with a $25.00 order (before tax and S/H). I will draw a name from all attendees to win a mini stamp set. I will also draw a name from all orders placed (including outside orders) to pick from the prize basket. Please bring adhesive of your choice.

Mojo Monday 175

This card is typically not my style, but that is why I LOVE Mojo Mondays! It so causes me to think outside of the box. When I see the sketch I usually can envision the paper I want to use and what "theme" I want to work towards. I originally had wanted to do something for Valentines Day with this sketch, but once I used the B&T paper from the Wings paper pack and had the CTMH Pretty Pins picked out to use, I could see myself steering towards something Victorian. I recently had decided to try to make a paper rose (one of the latest paper crafting crazes). What you see is my first attempt. I was pretty happy with the result. Thanks for looking! All products are Close to my Heart.

Mojo Monday 174

Here is a sneak peak at some of the new product available from the Feb. 1st release of the CTMH Spring/Summer catty. This Mojo Monday card was created from the paper pack appropriately called Wings. Aren't all the colors just stunning? The CTMH colors used are Vineyard Berry, Jupiter, Black, Sweet Leaf, and Colonial White. I used the January Stamp of the Month called "Find Your Style." I think I did find my style with this card. It came together so fast and simple using the sketch. I was so excited to use the coordinating Wings Level 2 pleated ribbon on the card as well. It really added the right look to the card and so easy to attach using the Jupiter brads. The butterflies were created using a Martha punch and I added small black pearls from the Licorice Pearls asst.

If you LOVE all these products as much as I do, you can get these products NOW. Check out my Jan. 2nd post titled January Inspirations to get a peak at all the products and the fantastic discounts available on these products only in January. You can also visit my website www.pamstamps.myctmh to order now.

Mojo Monday 172

It's been a long time since I've participated in the Mojo Monday. Since school started again, it just seems like there hasn't been much just got in the way. After promising myself that I would make a 99.9% effort to do this weeks sketch...I thought to myself, why was I letting life get in the way of creativity? Julee's sketches are so much fun and so easy! This literally took less than 15 minutes to put together by following the sketch. I don't feel that it looks like it took 15 minutes to put together either. I hope you try a sketch today as well. What's stopping you?
