Come Celebrate the holiday season with me!!

I love the Holiday season from the beginning of the fall leaves and crisp cool air through Christmas!!
We will celebrate Christmas this month as you plan your get togethers you can keep in mind these pages to place your photos on...
This first set of pages feautures the White pines paper packet along with "Twinkle" Oct.'s Stamp of the Month!  I love how the twine, sequins and red gems and hearts to finish off the page and add that extra little pop!!  I feel Embellishments are the icing on the cake to finish off you pages :)
I ink distressed this page set in Chocolate..
How can you pass up these darling animals that are included in the White Pines compliments pkg.
On these two pages I used most of the compliments in these adorable clusters!
Inked with Cashmere

Here is a close up so you can see how I placed the gems and compliments to create the fun cluster!!

Oct. Club pages

I can not believe Oct. has come and gone and I am late posting these! Sorry Ladies and Gents!
For the month of Oct. I used the FUN and very versatile CTMH Nevermore paper and Access.

I have a couple of these kits left so contact me if you would like one to show case your photos!!

I inked distressed everything with Slate Ink for all of these pages! I love the D1660 Ink Blot stamp set and the finished look it adds the base pages!! 
Here's a close up of the clusters and stamped image! I stamped in Whisper ink :)

 This set of pages is the same layout it just has the adorable "Little Monsters" added to it instead of the access.'s to make it a little more juvenile!
 A simple page to add additional Halloween pictures to finish of your story of the evening!

 I just love the photos we had taken a couple of years ago before Zaquri left for his mission. This paper showcases masculine photos so well!

Additional pictures or seperate photos for the gear pages...

OR you can reverse the papers and have an Elegant set of pages!  It always amazes me how different the pages look by just turning the papers over to change it up....
The cards I created for Oct. also show the versalitity of the Nevermore paper packet! An elegant card or a fun card for that someone special in your life!
Contact me to purchase a set of 5 of these cards for special occasions you have coming up soon!!

You can stamp any sentiment on your cards to easily have a Birthday, Sympathy or just a note to say Hi!

 Please contact me for more information or with any questions you may have :)

Fun with Fundamentals!!

We all have selfies or random photos that don't always have several other photos to go with them. So for my kits I am featuring in July they are perfect to put those random photo's, or several photos from the same event!
   I am showcasing the CTMH  Whimsy fundamental paper line! I love this fun set of papers! on one side is looks as if the pattern has been clear embossed on the paper and on the other side the same pattern is on the paper in white!  And to make it even better you can order the fundamentals papers in all of the different color palettes!!

Below is the same pages one with the embossed side showing and the following photo shows the white pattern...  Also I love the fun Carnival washi tape to add your sentiment to the page... Make sure you stop by my website to order your own set of papers today!!


On the following pages I have once again shown you how much it changes the look of your art by just turning the papers over to show the white pattern verses the embossed pattern!! I love the look of both sides of the paper and will definitely create more layouts using this FUN paper packet!!

 Please contact me to get a set of pages to showcase your photos or order supplies on my website Janel.ctmh.com
