March Class Layout

This is the layout for my monthly class that was held Monday night using a Family theme.  I have some pictures in mind for this layout, I just need to reprint them in a Black & White or Sepia tone.  The layout is from the Imagine How To book, the layout is Follow the Lead.  The left page calls for a large 8x10 and a 4x4.  I am thinking I will put 2 - 4x6s on that large mat, which is why I put the "The Love of Family is the greatest blessing" accent in the middle.  I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut out the two sentiment shapes on the left page.  The sentiments came from the Family Love (D1506) stamp set and is not marked for a cartridge shape, but that's what I love about the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, you can play around with all of the different shapes on the cartridge to find the one that works!

Supplies used all CTMH unless noted.
Stella paper (colonial white with olive accenting) & Sonoma papers.
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Stamp Sets - Baroque Alphabet, Family Love & Potential (March SOTM)
Colonial White & Olive brads
Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon
Canvas Badge Buttons

You touch so many lives Card

Here is a card I made last month using the February Stamp of the Month - Thoughtful Tidings, Roxie papers and Chocolate Baker's Twine.

Superhero - 4th of July layout

Here is another layout made using Superhero papers.  I went to a Scrapaganza a couple of weekends ago with some friends and wonderful ladies.  It is like an all day swap crop.  Everyone brought a double page layout that they created and kits for the other ladies to make, and this is my layout I took.

Supplies used all CTMH unless noted.
Superhero paper
Cardstock - Cranberry, Sky & Moonstruck
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Stamp Sets - American Celebration, July Word Puzzle (retired) & Brilliant Backgrounds (retired)
Dimensional Element - Stars
Embossing Powders - Cranberry & Silver

Superhero Class layout

Sorry I'm behind on posting some of my recent craftiness!  This is the class layout from last month using Superhero papers.  I started out thinking of doing the layout of one or both of my boys.  But as my ladies know, by the time they arrive at class I've usually added to or tweaked my layout a bit!  This is the picture I emailed them before class.
Supplies used all CTMH unless noted
Superhero Workshop on the Go
Cardstock - Cranberry, Sky, Moonstruck
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Comic Badge Buttons
Spray Pen with Moonstruck reinker

And this is my actual layout by the time they arrived to class.  I like to have pictures on my pages when they arrive, although it doesn't always work out like that.  But these pictures popped into my head and I had to change the title around just a bit.  My wonderful hubby, our Super Hero!!
