Two Year Work Anniversary

My boss made it to his two year anniversary on Thursday last week. My coworkers were talking about buying a card until they remembered the work that I do and I volunteered my card making skills.

Today's inspiration is from Case Study #117 : Maureen Merrit

I always find boy cards a challenge because a lot of the images I have are more female centered than male centered. However, by using boy-colors: blue and brown it helped to give it a more boy-type feel.

My favorite technique is to bring the colors and images to the inside of the card to tie it all together.

Happy Scrapbooking Month!

As you know this month is when I start to think about switching my winter performance tires out for summers - just in time for Mother Nature to dump more snow on us. I'm not sure it's a good idea but I guess it has to be done sooner rather than later.

As well it is National Scrapbooking Month! This brings of course a new SOTM as well as a super awesome promotion and I'm really stoked about both of them.

This month, spend $35 to receive this beautiful paper packet for only $10 more. Each sheet has a unique glossy resist pattern that's sure to add that extra "oomph" to all your projects. The papers are designed for this packet only! Promotion valid from April 1 - 30th.

If you have been paging through the catalog you'll notice that this month's SOTM has some funky red lines around several images.

That is because each shape with a red line around it means there is a corresponding image on one of CTMH's exclusive Cricut cartridges. In this case, all the shapes come out of Artiste, but I definetly love Artiste and Art Philosophy. 

Hoping for the snow to permanently go away,
