Typeset Birthday Card

I really like the new Typeset paper from CTMH.  This time I used it for an old fashioned looking birthday card.  I paired it with the All You Need Is Love stamp set.  The outside sentiment is a little hard to read in the picture.  It says, "Just living is not enough..."
The inside says, "one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. --Hans Christian Andersen"
"Happy Birthday" is from the stamp set Card Chatter-Birthday.  The stamps were all colored with copic markers, but everything else is CTMH.

First Day of School with Typeset

I finally had time to create something with some of my products from the new CTMH catalog.  These papers are from the new paperpack, Typeset.  I think they work great for a first day of school layout.  The layout is based, loosely, on a layout in the book Playing with Paper by Angelia Wigginton titled "Circular Logic."  This started out as a mirror image layout, but the two pages took on their own personalities.
Nick's page has lots of buttons and uses the new CTMH stamp set Vintage Type for both the typewriter-look letters and the little stamped tag under the buttons at the bottom center.  "Day" is made from CTMH's Posterboard alphabet, stamped on another Typeset B&T paper.  The banner to the left, SEP (for Southeast Polk--Nick's high school), is made with Pennant alphabet.  All the embellishments are CTMH.

Jess's page uses some stamps from CTMH's Friendship, Delightful Things, and Delightful Alphabet stamps.  "School" is stamped with Token alphabet, then punched, and attached with dimensional tape.  Both layouts have touches of gold/yellow accents because Nick's high school and Jess's college (Univ. of Iowa) both use the colors black and gold.

Jack's Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for my mom to give to her great grandson, Jack.  The colors are brighter in person than in the picture.  I used CTMH key lime and pacifica.  All the stamps are CTMH.  The little ball player was colored with copics.

American Falls Layout

This layout is made from all CTMH products.  The paper is all from the Lucky paper pack, except for a few pieces of lined paper from Notebook.  All the metal embellishments are CTMH.

This side of the layout was based on a layout from the book Playing with Paper by Angelia Wigginton.  "American Falls" was stamped with Friendship Alphabet; "Enjoy the" is from the Themepark stamp set; and "View" is from Token Alphabet.  The picture of Jess & "View" are raised.

The flourish in the upper right is cut out from a sheet of Lucky B&T.  "Unforgettable Memory" is from the Picture Perfect stamp set. 

Princess Birthday Card

Fit for a princess of any age, this birthday card is made up of a castle stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs, stamped directly on the white card, and a stamp from CTMH from the Piece of Cake stamp set (one of my favs).  The cupcakes stamp is raised with a little bow added.  Everything is colored with copics.

Follow Your Dreams Card

I used Gypsy and Lagoon cs for the two halves of this card.  All the stamps (including the random stamping on the Lagoon cs are from CTMH's You and Me stamp set.  That's Tim Holtz tissue tape down the middle (love that stuff) and some CTMH grey opaques to the left of the fleur de lis and to the right of "dreams."
