Before I go, though, I wanted to post a quick update and share with you my crazy creative week! Yesterday's Workshop Wednesday was a huge hit! Everyone loved all the cards that I had to choose from, and all the ladies were able to make quite a few cards to take home with them!
I had 25 cards total with various papers, inks, stamps, and tools being used on each one! I also had some fun techniques to try, and some new products to show off (hello cute little #30yearsofhappy stamp set)! I think the ladies enjoyed it so much that I might have to offer this workshop again so that they can make some of the cards they didn't get to! If I do, I hope the rest of you can join us! It was a ton of fun! Check out some of the examples that I offered:
To start my week, one of the directors on my team challenged us with a color challenge! It was really pretty and I felt inspired to participate in this one! Here is the color palette she gave us:
The rules were that we had to create 3 projects using at least 3 of these colors on each one. You could choose whichever CTMH colors you felt correlated best with the palette, and you had 5 days to complete the challenge and post your pictures! Anyone that participated was then entered into a drawing for CTMH product!
I had a blast playing with this color palette! I chose Whisper, Desert Sand, Smokey Plum, Juniper, Glacier, and Pacifica as my CTMH colors, and these were my 3 projects I came up with:
|For this 3x3 card I used 2nd generation Pacifica, Smokey Plum, Whisper, and Juniper with a Desert Sand background. The stamped images are from the new #30yearsofhappy, Keyboard Uppercase Alphabet, and Typeface Alphabet stamp sets.|
|On this card I used Desert Sand, Smokey Plum, Whisper, Flaxen, New England Ivy, and Olive. The stamped images are from the WOTG Pathfinding Cardmaking kit, and Happy Autumn stamp sets.|
|For my last card I used Glacier, Smokey Plum, Whisper, Desert Sand, and Pacifica. The stamped images are from the WOTG Brushed Scrapbooking kit, and the #30yearsofhappy stamp sets!|
I was pretty pleased with how these turned out! I didn't win, but that's okay because it forced me to work on something different this week!
The other projects I completed this week were a couple cards for the hubby and I to use in our Wedding Wine Box! For those of you that do not know, we did something different at our wedding ceremony. We had a wooden box that we put letters to each other and a bottle of wine in. We sealed it at our ceremony and vowed to only open it when we needed to reconnect (like after a big fight or rough patch) or on our Anniversary to celebrate and remember!

So this year I made up a couple cards for us to use so we could write our letters to each other for next year's Anniversary! I had fun coming up with cards for each other because I had to make them fast, but still wanted them to be cute! Ian's card to me was one that was a pre-printed card that I added some extra details to. Here's what I came up with (Ian helped picked things out actually):
For my card to Ian, I used a blue background card (very similar to Twilight), and added some fun details! Here's what I came up with:
I hope you enjoyed looking at my fun projects from this week! You can find all the supplies you need to make these projects and more on my online shop! Have a great weekend, everyone, and stay warm! Until next time:
Here's to life, love, and creativity!
