August 2010 Cherish Club Layouts

Summer/Outdoors layout - features two new CTMH colors - Pear and Sky. For this fun layout you get to random stamp the trees and clouds. Other colors include Topiary, cranberry and goldrush as well as just about every brown offered by CTMH.
Precious Girl layout - perfect for your little "pretty in pink" pictures! Chocolate, Blush and sweet leaf colors.
This layout screams fall to me for some reason. Perfect for your kids playing in the leaves! If you wish we can switch out the hollyhock cardstock for some Indian Corn blue and of coarse add some cordinating ribbon!

All three layouts are from the WONDERFUL new Magic How-To book that will launch here in a few weeks! I LOVE Jeanette's How-To books! They make scrapbooking and cardmaking so enjoyable and rewarding!

I can't believe today is my last Cherish Club. I am sad to leave all my wonderful friends and club members behind as we embark on a new part of life here soon! I've enjoyed you all and wish you the best! KEEP PAPER CRAFTING! Keep visiting my blog for more of my artwork once we get settled! Wishing you all well! :)

How To make your own paper roses! :)










I added a brad to the center of mine, the jewel embellies work great too!

A close up of the finished product! The leaves are simply cardstock cut out and spritzed with water then crumpled! Have fun creating some awesome flowers! :)

An Altered box and a clear card {with LOVE}

Here are a few projects I've been working on lately. I've been meaning to put together a box to stash my hubby and I's 'love notes' we've given each other over the years instead of putting them in a boring shoe box. I love how this turned out.
I used the Silloutte paper packet as well as the Perfect Day papers. I love to use our Demensional Alphas for titles and it seems to make the cake with these altered boxes. I kind of made up how to make the rose petals curled, I have seen many awesome ones other people have posted but haven't found any instructions for these type of roses. I will post later step-by-step instructions on how to make these budding beauties!

Playing around with our clear cards. These are so fun to create with. I made this fast and easy card for my hubby {oh, and look he has a nice little box to put it in after he is done reading it!}
Another spin on the paper rose, but without the curled petals. I got these instructions off of Jeanette's blog. This card was done with the Veranda papers.
