Moon Doggie Moments

Back in April I went on a scrapbooking retreat, and this is one of the layouts I created. Time has flown by since then, as it only seem like a few weeks ago. This is one of my favorite 'new' layouts, so I thought I would share it with you. The photo's are of my son Jayden last year on the beach. The paper used to create the layout is Moon Doggie, from the current summer catalogue.




Featured Colours:

Indian Corn Blue
Desert Sand
Garden Green
Colonial White

All products used are CTMH

Jayden's Birthday Card

Last week was busy with mine and my son's birthdays. Here is the card that I made for my son. He quite likes dinosaurs, so I thought it was an obvious choice for his card.


This card uses the 'Animal Cookies' paper pack, one of my favorites from the current catalogue. It features the colours:

Tulip ca
Clover Meadow
Dutch Blue
Desert Sand
White Daisy

Stamps used:
Happy Birthday
Dino Roar
Spot on backgrounds

I used the new foam numbers from CTMH and took a heating gun to heat the foam shape, and while it was still hot, I pressed the spotted backgrounds stamp into the '3' to imprint dots in the number. The foam shape will shrink in size when heated, so if you are looking to do this technique be sure to have a slightly larger shape then is needed. I also stamped and paper pieced the dinosaur images, then popped them up using foam squares. To finish off the card I sewed on some coordinating buttons, added ric rac ribbon, and sanded the edges of the cardstock.

All items on this card are CTMH product.
