Valentine's Themed Faux Printer Tray with CTMH Mad about You and Roxie

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's SOTM called "Mad About You".  If you have come here from Wendy's blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.  

My friend Tanya asked me last month if I'd be putting together a Valentine's Day themed 12x12 framed art class and I immediately said YES knowing I wanted to use this month's stamp to create one!  This set is so much fun to play with and it goes so well with our Roxie paper pack! 

I've seen several samples of printer tray artwork online.  I love the look but I wanted to stick with a format that can be switched in and out of my 12x12 deep frame so I came up with this faux tray look created with slim strips of black cardstock.  I adore the bling brads on this piece - so glam and so easy!
Before you hop off my blog I wanted to let you all know that I'll be doing a

Home Sweet Home Card with CTMH Art Philosophy

Here is a cutie I made a month or two ago and forgot to share.  I used the AP Cartridge to cut the house and trees (one is actually a leaf shape sized up).

Altered Journal and Pen set - a great holiday gift!

This is a set I put together for my son to give a friend for her birthday.  It went together fairly quickly as the basic layout of the front with the black stems and roses was based on a project I made a couple of months back.  I love covering composition books for a personalized gift - who doesn't love getting something beautiful with their name on it?

Here is the inspiration piece found on this blog post.

If you'd like to make an altered journal like the one above, get these supplies:
Paper:  Roxie

Fall Wreath with Art Philosophy Flowers - done just in time!

Ever have one of those projects that you work on for 5 minutes here and there and wind up taking you a month to complete?  This is a very simple wreath project that I started over a month ago - kept picking it up and putting it down so instead of a hour or two to complete it took me a month - eek!  The good news is I FINALLY finished it in time for Thanksgiving and I'm happy with how it turned out!

Close up of the flowers.  The larger mums were cut at full page size (about 10.5") and the smaller roses were cut at 5.5" each (4 per page).  The flower centers are all three colors and both sizes of our Shimmer Brads - they are such a great value at $4.95 for 27!  Love the Bronze Glitz on the kraft colored leaves! 

If you'd like to make this wreath, get these supplies:

Paper:  Light Yellow and Orange Shade Pack (has Buttercup, Creme Brulee and Sunset papers), Kraft Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock (I backed the kraft leaves with this as it was too floppy on its own)
Inks:  Creme Brulee and Sunset
Other:  Art Philosophy Cartridge, Shimmer Brads, Bronze Glitz, Ribbon (about 5-6 yards of 2.5" - I found this gorgeous one at Costco), small styrofoam wreath base (Michaels)

Breast Cancer We're praying for you card with CTMH From my Heart, Always Remember and TLC

I made this for my mother-in-law.  She is currently undergoing treatment and we continue to pray for her for her and send out our best healing thoughts.  The good news is she lives in an area with research facilities and excellent cancer care.  I was inspired by this card done by my fellow CTMH consultant Karen Day. 

To make this card, get these supplies:
Paper:  Sweetheart Level 2, Gray Wool CS
Other:  Red, Pink and Purple Sparkles, Hollyhock Twill Ribbon
