Cards for Scrapbook 101

Hello! Well, it's almost time again for Scrapbook 101 and since I actually have the cards ready AND have taken pictures of them, I thought I'd share.

I usually don't do cute, but I just love this Thanksgiving stamp from Close To My Heart. I stamped it with Archival Black ink and then colored it with the CTMH markers.

Here's my variation of a card I found on a blog hop through Pam Klassen's blog:  I just love the Dreamin' paper and that bicycle!  Once again -- stamped with Archive Black and colored with CTMH markers.  The little bracketed shape is cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (available exclusively from CTMH).

This little card is made with Believe paper and the Holiday Magic stamp set (which was the CTMH Stamp of the Month for October.) The tree is popped up on foam tape to give a little dimension -- and of course there are a red sparkles.

My final card was inspired by a card designed by Laurel Seabrook. I really had to search her blog to find it, but here's the link:

I used the CTMH stamp set, Holiday Wishes.  It is so pretty and only available until the end of November.  Check the end of this post for details on how to get it.  (Hint - It's a really good deal!)  One of the joys of this stamp set is that the images are also on the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge -- so no fussy cutting and all the lines are straight! Of course this card is sparkled up with Bitty Sparkles. 

If you're interested in making these cards -- they are the project I'll be presenting this week at Scrapbook 101, Wednesday, November 16, from 7:00 - 9:30.  If you need details or directions, drop me an email at
