CTMH You are Fabulous bookmark

Hello! Hello!  This is going to be a really short post, because I am supposed to be canning my pears.  On Wednesday, I am having an Open House/Free Make & Take featuring some of CTMH's new products that are available to order TOMORROW!!

I am really excited if you couldn't tell.  Anyway, we are going to make this adorable bookmark.  It is really simple to make.  I will put together a YouTube tutorial soon (after canning season), which for me, I hope is next week!

I used CTMH's September 2015 SOTM set Paper Garden, and the colors from the new La Vie en Rose paper pack.  I also added olive (fern) and Peacock. 

Thanks for stopping! Happy crafting :) -Dari

Mommy Date layout

Hello! Hello!  Life has been extremely busy for me lately. I have been canning and involved in family things. I feel a little lost, because I haven't been able to craft :).  This morning my little princess said that we haven't had a crafting date in awhile.  Yes!! She misses it, too.  She remembered the pretty flowers that came in the Brushed WOTG scrapbooking kit and wanted to create something with them.  So, we sat down and created this together!  It was wonderful to get my fingers sticky with glue and create.

All of the products in this project came from CTMH's Brushed WOTG kit.  You can order it from your consultant or from me on my website  Thanks for stopping :) -Dari

Get Well pop up box card

Hello! Hello!  My grandma is in the hospital.  She hasn't been up for visitors or calls, but I wanted to do something to show her how much I love her and that I am thinking about her.

I chose to make this box using CTMH's Ariana paper packet.  This was in the Spring 2014 catalog.  I love how the colors contrast so well with each other- the blues and pinks :).

Here are the other ingredients I used:

CTMH Happy Birds Stamp Set C1600
CTMH Finding the Words Stamp Set D1646
CTMH Sincere Expressions Stamp Set A1146
CTMH Your Own Kind of Wonderful D1627
CTMH Flowers for Mom B1473
CTMH dye inks: Desert Sand, Outdoor Denim, Flaxen, Sorbet, Hollyhock, Cranberry, Pixie, Olive and Glacier
CTMH white daisy cardstock
CTMH 3D foam tape
CTMH Bonding Glue Stick (For ALL adhering)

Other: olive cardstock (Reflections) and 2 pearls (K & Co).

I hope I have inspired you to create your own work of art.  Have a fantastic day! -Dari

Gee, Thanks Box

Hello! Hello!  We had a family council a couple of weeks ago.  During this meeting, our children informed us that we hadn't done anything this summer.  "Hallelujah!" is what I thought; however they weren't as excited about that as I was :).  So, we asked them what they had in mind.  Afterwards, we decided to cram it all in within a two week period. 

We spent two days at Lagoon and 4 days at Bear Lake.  We are home now, and maybe I can recuperate again before school starts (at least it's a thought).

I'm back and ready to craft again. I shared the cricut file I created for this box awhile ago.  If you'd like to use it, you can go to my website  On the top of the screen, go to Cricut Files.  You should be able to find it from there.

I stamped the background using one of my favorite stamp sets from CTMH "Give a Lift" with Bamboo ink.  Then, I colored it with my Crayola colored pencils, folded it, glued it, and punched the holes for the string.

For the tag, I used CTMH's Hostess Rewards tag set in the current Seasonal Expressions supplement (can't remember the name, and it's not right with me). I stamped the background in bamboo and the sentiment with desert sand.  I don't have the cricut cartridge that goes with the stamp set, so I just used my paper trimmer and scissors.

Thanks for stopping by! As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask :). -Dari
