CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Blank Canvas

Welcome to the CTMH Technique Blog HOP!

Featuring: a Blank Canvas
 featured on page 32 of the
 Close to My Idea 2014 Annual Inspirations Idea Book

I love a blank canvas! 
Oh , I am not a painter. I can't paint!
But I love covering them 
with fabric or paper and making them fancy!
Don't you? 
Well, let's hop along to see what we have created on a BLANK CANVAS!

If you arrived here from Melissa Robinson's BLOG, 
you are on the right track!

The CTMH canvas is 6 x 6...not huge, but just the right size to tuck on a shelf or a table after it's been embellished!

First, I decided to use the CTMH Brushed paper packet! These papers are adorable and so springy! I also think they are just right for Easter and baby shower layouts! 
Then, I used the CTMH exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the egg and overlay. 
Next, I cut the "M" from our Artbooking Cricut Cartridge. I wanted the "M" to be a little more dimensional so here's a tip for adding a little more height to shapes.
Tip: Cut the letter or shape at the same size multiple times. I cut the "M" six times. Then layer them on top of each other with you favorite glue. 
Finally, I assembled and glued all pieces on the canvas. Another tip--I used our fabulous Liquid Glass adhesive to attach the yellow paper to the canvas. I also used pop-up tape to "POP-up" the egg.

Pretty stinking cute and fast!

March Stampers with an Attitude Show You Their Picture My Life Artwork Blog Hop

Happy March Everyone! 
So happy that Spring is on the way! I LOVE spring! A time for fresh new ideas!

My post today is a project for the Stampers With An Attitude March Blog Hop. Our challenge this month was to feature projects created with our Picture My Life Cards from Close To My Heart.

If you have arrived here from Sheila's Blog you are on the right path. If this is your first blog hop, it's a circular path featuring a variety of CTMH artwork  if you follow the links.

My project is a single page layout. It features our Heartstrings paper and Picture My Life cards, random stamping, and a little chaos. LOL.

My mission for this month's challenge was to keep it fast, easy, and simple. I used the Babycakes Picture My Life cards to create 4 easy-peasy cards.
It took approximately 30 minutes to create all four cards. 
I used one large PML card and two of the smaller cards per card, CTMH pop-up tape, and glue. The hardest part was selecting which PML cards to use. LOL. They are so cute and the variations are limitless! Really, it was so simple!
