Project Playground is almost here!

I didn't get in as much creating this last weekend as I would have liked. Girl Scout Cookies came and sale day started on Sunday so I had to take Faith out and have her sell some cookies. She is off to a good start thanks to Nathan taking the order form to work and her door-to-door sales of 25 boxes. She has a goal of 160 boxes which she will reach in no time. I did find some time to get a card made and created a new scrapbook project that will be available in February. The card is a mix of miscelleanous paper I had on hand, a retiring stamp set called Treasure Life and a new stamp set called Card Chatter-Birthday.
This scrapbook layout was created from Close to My Heart's Cherish How to book. I am loving using the easy to follow instructions and visuals in the how to book. It was fun working on the placement of all my hearts cut from Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and my collection of Olive hardware. I used the new paper pack called Florentine. I just fell in love with the colors in this paper pack as soon as I saw it and this layout is by far one of my most recent favorites. Hopefully, you can come by on January 29th 1-4pm to make some cards and pick up the brand new catalog. If not, drop me a line and I can hook you up with a hard copy catalog and a kit to make this scrapbook layout for $15.

New Year's Moments

I had some fun with some memories from our last day of 2011 with my kids. This one is with the Wonderland paper pack and I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge to create all the fun arrows.

This next one I created with another paper pack that is retiring called Mayberry. I love the colors in this and they really suited the not-so-good photos. The lighting wasn't good and taken with my Iphone but on this colorful page they worked very well. The butterflies are creased in the middle and only one side is adhered to the page which gives them more of a 3-D look.

There's still time to get these papers before they retire forever but if you miss out on the actual stuff, they will be avaliable as paper choice in Studio J.  Order paper, etc. directly from my website and have shipped right to your door!  www.ctmh.com/janinerobertson   Email me if you have any questions about any products on the website or in the catalog!  RobertsonOasisAngel@gmail.com

Making a plan for sending cards for a year

I haven't bought a greeting card in almost 5 years! I have loved sending something made by me that means so much more. Unfortunately, like many of us, I have the challenge of getting my cards made and actually sent to the recipient in a timely manner.  Ooops, there goes another belated birthday card was said way too often this last year. So, I am prepping things ahead of time. Thanks to my sister-in-laws gift of a calender for 2012 with all the birthdays in the family on it. All I have to do is add my husband's side of the family and than I will get the envelopes all addressed and put them in order of when they need to be sent and put them in a basket with my book of stamps and pen ready.  The other side of it is actually making the cards.  So I created two cards that could be used for birthdays or any other kind of celebration that will be availalbe to make at the next Project Playground on January 29th.
I was playing around with a window card I created using the Art Philosopy cartridge which hasn't come out of my machine for any other Cricut cartridge since I got it in October. I love all the options that can be used for both scrapbooking and cardmaking.  I created this window card with Rectangle #8 and some cut out stars. There's a star adhered with foam tape on the inside that shows through the window but I made it a suprise and put the sentiment strip over it so when you open it you get this...

I added the sentiment "happy birthday" with the Classmate Alphabet stamp set but you could add any type of sentiment like "celebrate" or "congratualtions". Than I created this easy card using the November stamp of the month Cherish the Day. Although, it's no longer stamp of the month you can still get this stamp set and utilize it throughout your year.
Now, that I have a couple of masculine cards for those male birthdays coming up in the first few months of 2012; it's time to get back to the girls... I got the new catalog and am SO in love with the new paper sets! Can't wait for payday so I can get some ordered and start creating with the new stuff!

Thank you card gift packs

Thanks to Lisa Stenz for the idea on creating a stencil with the Art Philosophy Cartridge. It's a technique I have used before but it was a very good reminder and got my creative juices going. I cut out a heart, snowflake, star, flower, ornament, tree and fluer di lis accent and used my newest stamp sets Cherish the Day, Everlasting Life, Hooray Bouquet and a tried and true favorite of mine, A Little Thanks.
I just used the coordinating color cardstock and inks in these two thank you cards.
Than, I deviated and made some Christmas Cards using an ornament and Christmas Tree and paper from Believe paper pack.

I sponged in ink color over the stamped words with sponge daubers. I added a second color to these Christmas cards to make them extra special and added Glitz Glitter Gel in very small amounts that I spread around with the tip of the bottle.
Than, I started thinking about the next Project Playground in January and decided to make a birthday card.

I was using a block that was a little too big for the stamp I was using so the ink got on the edge of the block and made a line. Well, I decided to make some more of those lines in various directions which gave a neat distressed background effect. I used the Wonderland Paper pack paper with this card.

Next, I went into my browns:

 I was wishing for more vibrant color inks and papers at this point so those are now on my wish list. So, I went back to making Thank you cards with the Fluer di Lis accent.

I made over 60 cards! To make a set of six you will need: 1 12 x12 sheet of paper for your colored background which is cut at 4 x 5.25" and white card stock cut at 3.75 x 5" and of course a template cut out of scrap card stock and the coordinating ink colors. The possibilities are endless and easy with this technique. I can't wait to get more ink colors and papers to play around with this.
