Looking for CTMH TV

Hi there
Yesterday I mentioned I have a new website. I'll be pointing out some of the great things you can find there over the next few posts.

The one I want to highlight today is CTMH TV.  You will see that as one of the menu options when you go to my site at (or click on the shop now button on the right hand side of the blog). 

When you go there you will see lots of different videos you can watch.  Some are about products, others about techniques.  I guarantee you cannot watch them without learning something and getting great ideas!  I just watched one about the new Spring buttons we have.  To go to that video directly, click here.

Once you watch some videos you won't be able to stop yourself from crafting! I'm very sad that after I finish this I need to get back to work!  If you make something, be sure to send me a picture of your creation! I'd love to post it on my blog!

Have fun and happy scrappin'!

Making Paper with Stamps

If you have done a workshop with me at any point, one of the things I talk a lot about is doing more for less.  Vicki has a great example on her blog of some amazing things you can do with 3 colour of paper and 1 stamp set!  Check out her blog here to see the products she used and details on the amazing card she has created.  There are so many ways you could do the same- use black, white and red for Valentines Day, use black, red and the favourite colour of someone who you are making a card for.  The combinations are endless, all with very minimal supplies for those are you just starting out and are not yet paper collectors like I am!

Here is Vicki's card:

I love how the "flags" at the bottom look like ribbon.  She has done a really great job- as always!

Be sure to let me know how you use this technique in your own cards or layouts!  And if you do not already follow Vicki's blog, ensure you start!
Happy Scrappin'!
