Apron Cards

I started on a new adventure two months ago.  I was introduce or should I say reintroduced to Wildtree earlier this year.  We have been so blown away by the meals we have been preparing and I knew I needed to sign up.  It has been an exciting journey helping people find new, healthy and simple dinner solutions.  I love the fact that Wildtree is an all-natural and certified Organic company that offers a wide variety of herbs, spices, marinades, dressings, soups, breads and more.  I decided to design some thank you cards for my customers.

This on is was designed using a retired paper pack Jubilee.

Wildtree thank you notes ~ Apron Card ~ Penelope ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis one was designed using Penelope which was also recently retired. The cut file is an SVG file I found on the Silhouette store. I love these cards and they are perfect for my new business.  Please let me know if you would like more information about Wildtree and if I can help you with your meal time dilemmas.

Featured Product Hop ~ Complements

Hello and welcome to our CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop. This week our featured product is Complements.  As you know for every paper pack there is a coordinating Complement pack.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop. If you came here from MELISSA ROBINSON’s Blog then you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

Penelope ~ Just Because ~ Chicks ~ CatScrapbooking.comI have been admiring the curtain fold cards I have been seeing and decided to give it a try.  I used Penelope paper pack and complements. If you are interested in trying the curtain fold there are many tutorial out there and I still need to play around with the size.  I started with a 3″ by 7 3/4″ strip.  I started by making a tick mark on the right side 1 1/4″ down from the top along the short side and at 2 3/4″ in along bottom left side.  Then trim at an angle connecting the two tick marks.  I then scored starting at the left at 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5″ and 6 1/8″.  This results in a 3″ by 3 3/4″ finished fold.

Here is the list of products used:

Penelope Artfully Sent Card

I was playing around one of the Artfully Sent images to design a card using Penelope. I decided to hide the contour lines for the card so the cuts would be small and be just the flowers, leaves and ribbon.  In hindsight it would have been easier to cut the card then just paper piece the flower, ribbon and leaves behind… c’est la vie!

Penelope Celebrate Card ~ Artfully Sent Flowers ~ CatScrapbooking.comGranted this was a bit tedious trying to line up all the small pieces, but in the end I am pleased the way it turned out.

Technique Blog Hop ~ Kissing is for Stamping

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!12654374_10153385335867934_7561329688020540845_n

This month we are featuring the Kissing Technique!  Have you heard of this technique??  Well the way it works is you ink up one stamp then take a second stamp with no ink and touch or kiss the inked stamp.  The result is a pattern on the stamp image.  If you just hopped onto my blog or arrived from WENDY KESSLER’S Blog then you are in the right place.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork.

I haven not used this technique a lot but have tried it a couple of times.  Decided to make those adorable balloon animals in this months stamp of the month have a pattern.  Check it out…

Kissing Technique ~ Penelope ~ Balloon Animals ~ Celebrate ~ Artfully Sent ~ CatScrapbooking.comYou can see that the Elephant and Horse have polka-dots.  I inked up the elephant then using the cluster of dots from the Balloon Animals stamp set I randomly stamped the inked elephant stamping the dots off on a piece of scratch paper between each “kiss”.  Then once the entire elephant was random stamped, I then stamped the elephant. I repeated the process for the horse too.

Here is the full list of products used:

Now hop on over to PRISCILLA GOTHAM ’S Blog and see what she has created for you today.  If you get lost along here is the full list of participants.
