WOTG Club - Layout One for February 2011

Well, I finally finished the LO, one of them, for next Friday night's club night. It did not take long to make, it took me long to START, LOL! I modified the sketch we will do from that in the brochure, slightly - to accommodate my pictures.
If you bring pictures, try for some vertical pics for the right side of this LO, as seen in the next pic and one large one for the left side, as you will see here:
The LO on the left, I added an extra picture not shown in the LO in the sketch in the WOTG brochure. I also added a journaling block, because I don't always like to use my own handwriting (like a lot of you too).
My daugher Amanda is in the pics with me. My neice Bree, is in the pics with Amanda.
I can't wait to see what you all do with this skecth and your pictures.
Hope to see next Friday.
Peachy Heart hugs, Debbie

Make It From The Heart - CTMH Card Contest

For our CTMH Consultant Contest, “Make It From the Heart”, I also made a card using our new Wings Level 2 Kit. The card is a variation of a tri-fold card. It has a graduated front, so I call it a Graduated Tri-fold card. The sketch is from the CTMH book, “Wishes”, page 15.

I used several stamp sets on it including: D1348: Priceless Love Word Puzzle, B1376: Wings D1363, Picture Perfect. D1283: Say It In Style. C1456: Heartfelt Treasures, D1479: Dreams Come True, C1422: Unity, D1328: Post Marked and D1269: Feb Word Puzzle. That’s a lot, I know…but I might have just used one small stamp from the set. The colors are Juniper, Black and Vineyard Berry. I did some wet embossing on the front. The card highlights some our new embellishments.

I was going to send this to my nephew Josh, who I just found out, is back from his deployment. So instead of sending it “across the big pond” I will just send up to ND. If you have any questions about any of the products, please let me know.

Make It From The Heart - CTMH Contest

Finally, I made some artwork for our CTMH Consultant Contest, “Make It From the Heart”. The first item I submitted is a LO using our new Sophia Level 1 Kit. The requirement is to only use the pre-formated and other papers in the kit, along with the complimenting Stickease.
What a challenge for me! No stamping! No embellishments! Not even any distressing with ink!! I did make a flip up with the cardstock, used a Stickease strip to make a “ribbon-like” embellishment and I used the included cardstock to make photo and Stickease mats. I also cut into one of the preformatted photo squares, to tuck the matted Stickease in. Here is the left side:
The photos are of my DD Amanda and my DN Brianna. The photos really compliment the Sophia papers and are a good soft “unusual” choice for a Christmas themed LO, but to me, they work.
This is the left side of the LO, with the flip-up.
Thanks for looking! Peachy Heart hugs, Debbie
