LeaderShare 2012- New Jersey

This past weekend I attended the CTMH Leadershare hosted by Lynn Como and Kristina Livingstone.  I had a blast, learned a lot of new techniques and made so many layouts and cards that I can't possibly post them all in one blog post! The first two pictures are two 12x12 shadow box frames I made as roomie gifts for two of my CTMH friends, Jolene and Crystal.  I had so much fun this weekend!  Here are some pictures from the event...I will post more of my artwork soon!

The fab four:  Jolene, Stacey, Me and Crystal

Me and my awesome upline Joyce
A fun shot of Nancy, she makes the most beautful cards

Me and Monica (Vice President of CTMH and the nicest person ever)

Me and Kristina Livingstone, a great team leader

Me and Lynn Como, one of my CTMH Idols

Check back soon for my artwork photos. I made 7 two-page layouts and 4 cards so it will be a BIG post! :)

Happy Crafting!

Cross Country Layouts using Studio J

I have completed the following five layouts using Studio J for the business class of our upcoming CTMH LeaderShare in New Jersey.   Studio J is an online scrapbooking program that allows you to create beautiful layouts fast! You do not need to print your pictures as Studio J prints everything for you and sends you the 12x12 pages with sheet protectors too! If you have not tried this amazing software yet send me an email, I would be happy to show you how! This is also a great way to get caught up on layouts if you are behind in your scrapbooking (and who isn't!?!) and looks amazing for wedding albums, family history albums and special occasions where you may not want to use adhesive on your photos or worry about the papers or accessories decreasing the lifetime of your artwork. 

Although these projects did not go as fast as most of the layouts I have created in Studio J, I did spend more time adding detailing such as stitching and I learned valuable tricks and techniques that I will definitely use in future layouts.  I love Studio J! 

These are all pictures from my family's recent trip cross country.  As you can see we had a blast! Now I just have to finish scrapbooking the rest - in Studio J of course! :)

Peacock Life Is Good Frame

I absolutely LOVE peacocks and recently finished a few peacock 12x12 shadow box frames. I love the feather stamp on the chocolate cardstock and of course the Life Is Good sentiment in the badge. The blue colors and neutrals always look good together and a little bling never hurts either! :)  I have also been hard at work on the layouts for Lynn Como's upcoming LeaderShare in New Jersey.  I am really looking forward to this event! I can't wait to see my CTMH friends again and get my hands on some free CTMH goodies! :)  I will post some of my finished layouts from that event soon...

Happy Crafting!
