September Card Class

These are the cards my group made for the September Techniques class!

Techniques were: circle cards & stitching!

The circle cards were created using my coluzzle! The coluzzle is still available from CTMH in very limited quantities! The circle template is my favorite and perfect for creating these cards!
Our Wishes card book also has tons of circle card sketches and templates you can print out to use at home :)
Both of these cards featured the September SOTM- Treasures!

Grace Level 2

Chocolate ink

Twitterpated Level 2
September SOTM
Chocolate ink
Crystal Blue Waxy flax for stitching

This card features 2 faux stitching techniques! For the first, I used my cutterbee to run holes along the edges of the blue pp. Then I took a pen and "connected the dots" giving it a stitched look. For the second, I used the Simple Stitches stamp set to create a zig zag stitch along the yellow pp.

So I was reading on one of the blogs in my list and she said her ticker #'s were all of a sudden thousands less than before and I headed back to my own blog to check and sure enough it happened to me too :(

So as I was gearing up to offer a 20,000 hit blog candy, looks like I'll be gearing up for a 15,000 hit blog candy in the near future :(

Anyone know how to get them back?????

This months challenge for the scrappy blog hop was to stamp on a layout!!!!!!! Well, I do that pretty often, but this one I just love!!!!!

This layout is of the 4 Generations of girls--- My grandmother, my mom, myself and my daughter! This layout features CTMH's Key to My Heart Papers, Heartfelt Whimsy Die cuts and the NEW Grown With Love stamp set (the tree). I free handed the tree top and added buttons!
