One of my other favorite new items is the pewter "Filigree Charms." They are so beautiful. On the front cover of the catalog they are used with the new Just Blooms flowers in Spring Blossom colors (as well as the page being made with my favorite paper pack "Veranda").
Wait until you see the new "You Rock" paper kit & stamp sets that match. All I can say is... "Awesome!" It's perfect for teens & rock band pictures, skateboard & school photos, hangin' out with friends & so much more. The bold patterns & intensity of color is fun & irresistible.
Be one of the first to receive this Idea Book by setting up a Home Gathering in January. Our release date for the Spring Catalog is Jan. 1, but...if you book a party you can get yours right away for FREE! Call or email me soon to pick your date!

This card is for my friend Rose who just had a baby boy. Logan is so cute & growing so fast. The fun paper is from our "Animal Cookies" Kit featured in our Summer Catalog. The stamp set is "Sweet Baby." It's the same set that I designed the baby girl card with. I like the distressed font. Personality was added to this paper with a different colors of Stickles Glitter Glue on each animal. So easy to use & no messy glitter.
Introducing... Logan Jannenga
O.K. Everyone all at once...AAAWWWW isn't he cute!!
I better get the card in the mail!

Our new catalog is going to be released on Sept. 1rst. We (as consultants) get to preview it a month in advance so we can order products to be able to show our customers during our Open Houses & New Release Shows. Anyhow...Our CTMH Leadership Convention is going on right now & they are introducing the new product to the 1500 or so consultants that are there. These kind consultants are nice enough to filter info through facebook, twitter, texting, email & our CTMH BB on to us eagerly awaiting consultants that didn't get to go, so...between the 4 open tabs on my computer yesterday I got so involved that an hour later I kept thinking "what is that popping noise I hear?" I turn around & looked..."Oh #$%*!" I forgot I had put water on the stove to boil macaroni for a summer salad! Good thing it was in a big pot. Half of the water had boiled away! Hey can you burn water??!!
p.s. Don't tell my Hubby!

This little guy is from the same stamp set "You're a Hoot." The paper is from"Daydream." Both the paper & stamp set are whimsical & fun. I rolled the owl in blush & sweat leaf ink & punched out little dots in blue for his eyes. He's so cute!

I used my Cuttle bug to emboss a design into the white CS. Thinking of a "golf" theme I used my circle folder & dot folder. I also used the circle die from Nestabilities. At first I didn't like the "nesties" because of the noise they make when they go through your cuttlebug, but I watched some videos on you-tube & got over it! I colored the stamped images in with colored pencils & sponged over top of the thank you & attached it with pop dots. The stamp set is "Tee Time" & the sentaments is from "Thank You."
My Sister Joanne made this card. Applause, Applause! I really like it. She put bright & cheerful colors into it. It's hard to tell from the photo, but she also added glitter to it. Glittering the paisley made the design pop and added a touch beauty to the card. Love your artwork Joanne!
The Paisly is from our July Stamp of the Month "You've got Flair" and the sentament is one of my favorite from "Buttoned Together." The paper is one of the designs in Animal Cookies.
