Introducing CTMH Charlotte

My Charlotte Samples have arrived today!

Available January 1st, 2016, the Seasonal Expressions 1 -  Idea Book is packed full of very exciting new products. We are now able to preview images from the idea book and, today I am sharing the beautiful Charlotte Papers and Accessories and letting you in on some of the changes.

Charlotte WYW Kit (Workshop Your Way) are replacing the WOTG Kits (Workshop On The Go)

There will no longer be a Stamp Set included in the kit (which appeals to the card maker in me.  As lovely as the stamp sets were, more often than not they were too large for cards very disappointing).

Use the materials and online guide to create three traditional layouts
and one Picture My Life™ layout.
1 – Charlotte Paper Packet (X7205B) -  Twelve 12"x12" B&T Duos (6 doubled sided designs)
1 – Charlotte Complements (X7205C)
3 – Cardstock Sheets (1 Black, 2 Whisper)
1 – Black & Gold Ribbon (Z3197) NEW
1 – Treasured Puffies (Z3203)
$41 AUD
Charlotte Love Layout
features Complements & Black & Gold Ribbon & PML

There is enough paper in the kit to complete three (3) Double page layouts PLUS a Picture My Life (PML) Layout.  The PML B&T mimics the CTMH PML cards with every image being Portrait and  the reverse side Landscape  (a grand total of  6 - 4" x  6" pieces and 12 - 3"x4" pieces to cut.  

Charlotte Home Is Layout

The PML (Picture My Life) sheets are perfect for journaling - quick, simple and beautifully co-ordinated to the entire layout.  No more searching for the "right" embellishment.

Charlotte Lovely Day Layout
The Zip Strips for each page are gorgeous too!

Make 9 cards, 3 of each design, u sing your remaining workshop materials and just a few extra supplies. PLEASE NOTE Card Bases, Envelopes and Stamp Set not included in the WYW Kit. 

Charlotte Card Making Workshop

THE MOST EXCITING far as I am concerned.... 

CTMH has introduced THIN CUTS.  The most gorgeous and delicate dies to co-ordinate with selected stamp sets. They come packaged with a metallic holding plate inside the sturdy plastic folder (same as our stamp sets).  I had planned to to stamp and die-cut the Springtime Wishes - Stamp Set with the Spring Time Wishes Thin Cuts.  However, and would you believe I somehow managed to delete the Stamp Set from my order.  Have ordered the set today, so stay tuned. I did however try out the dies THEY ARE GORGEOUS!!! and I am so excited.

My Acrylix® Springtime Wishes Stamp Set - $21.00

I promise I will be posting examples as soon as my missing Springtime Wishes Stamp Set arrives.
Until then,Happy Crafting!

Yes I am posting!

Apologies for being AWOL!

I have been busy with classes, workshops, designing and lots of boring other stuff that got in the way. I have however, and still continue to have massive problems with uploading photographs and a blog without pictures is just way too boring.

I have also been madly using up my stash of last seasons papers to prepare for a market stall this coming Saturday...lots of one off cards and off the page projects at bargain basement prices.  Why so cheap? Because I have limited storage space to keep products made with retiring or retired papers and.....
I AM PREPARING for the release of the NEW Seasonal Expressions 1 on January 1st, 2016.  I got to order and see the idea book on line for the first time yesterday and there are so many gorgeous NEW products I can hardly contain myself.  Not sure if I am allowed to do this but I have taken a couple of screen shots to give you a very sneaky peek...ssssh!

This card using one of the stamps from January SOTM - IT IS GORGEOUS!

My ever trusty computer tech (DH) will be back next week after three long weeks away for work so I will share some of the photos I have taken then.

I nearly forgot to mention I that I am in the process of setting up a Facebook Page, On-Line Clubs and changing some pages in my blog. Look forward to being back soon.
Happy Crafting,
