May 1st - Launch of our Summer Idea Book and FIVE new exciting summer paper packs!

I am sooooo excited for this Idea Book, it is by far the most gender neutral, fun summer idea book yet and the papers are TO DIE FOR!

As always, we will be hosting our famous Workshops on the Go program featuring each of the new paper packs from the Summer Idea Book: Animal Cookies, Moon Doggie, Bella, Back Country and Tinkerin'.

The Workshops on the Go program is a fun, unique way to get out and create six beautiful scrapbook pages in 3 hours. We have evening, afternoon and weekend workshops available to suit everybody's needs and desires! Each workshop costs is $35.00 and includes a level 2 paper pack, My Stickease and coordinating Accessory from the Idea book as well as any other miscellaneous item (ie: brads or ribbon) needed to complete all six pages.

Please see the Calender for dates and times.

We would also be thrilled to come to you and do the Workshops on the Go at your house. If you have five friends who are interested in doing one or all of our Workshops on the Go layouts, give us a call at 403-938-7498 and we would be happy to bring our Workshops to you!

Each workshop features a two-page, level-three layout with an exclusive Jeanette Lynton original pattern not available in our how-to programs, as well as a technique and tool lesson embedded into the pagers. We will teach you how to use your paper trimmer and guide you through cutting the pieces for all six pages and then dive into the building and completion of these beautifully designed masterpieces.

No materials required! No experience required!

Our first Workshop on the Go from the Summer Idea Book is going to be Animal Cookies, its a fun, colorful paper pack with endless possibilities. Below is a photograph of the First two pages of the workshop. See our website at and look under the workshops on the go section for the other workshops we will be featuring this summer.

Tickled Pink- My Experience

I was not sure whether or not I was going to like this promotion, but after five minutes of playing with the sparkly papers and beautiful stamp set I knew I needed more!

This cute four page layout kit really has everything but in, they even give you a sponge tool and teach you how to use both sides of it so that you only need the one to complete the whole project. stamping on the White Daisy Die Cuts was fun, one suggestion I would make is to punch the pieces from the die cut sheet and have a darker piece of scrap under you to be able to clearly see the edges, and if the stamp does not get lined up just right, simply sponge the edges of the flower when your done.

The cutting guide was easy to follow, and I was amazed at how many scraps I had left over! The paper is also nice, and the guide gets you to cut into the non-sparkly pages for using the blue side, so that you have even more dazzling shine left over to use on other projects. Although this paper seems a little girlie, I am going to challenge myself to use it for a page featuring my brothers. If anyone has used this paper in a fun, new, more masculine way I encourage them to send me a photo, and I will post it on our myCTMH site under Art.

The only other thing I want to say about the Tickled Pink Kit, is that it is one of the first promotion items I have used and completed for myself, and it took my maybe four hours start to finish while watching t.v. I did have a couple problems printing my pictures, due to lack of skills on Photoshop, but i think the pages turned out alright in the end.

More Art to come using my extra pieces and the stamp set from Tickled Pink!
