Mojo Monday Hot Air Balloon Card

I decided to take a few quick minutes and play along with Mojo Monday today. It's always nice to have a little inspiration!

This 3 1/2" x 6" card is simple and really did just take a couple of minutes to put together thanks to the beautiful Complements line that CTMH created to go with their paper packs.  I used the Balloon Ride paper pack, the matching Complements Dimensional Elements, and just a couple of embellishments to create this card (see the end of this post for list of supplies with photos and links).The cute sentiment was one of the zip strips from the Balloon Ride paper.  I also used one of my very favorite new products, the Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment. I used the Cashmere colored piece for the background strips.  Each of these pieces of cardstock has a white on color pattern on one side and a tone on tone embossed pattern on the back side. I just used a sponge and a bit of Cashmere ink to make the embossing stand out.  Cool beans! You can shop for any of these products and so many more on my website, 24/7.  One thing I did use that we no longer carry are the Mocha Opaques. You could easily use our Brown and Tan Sparkles Assortment in its place.

You may also notice some gorgeous gold polka dotted vellum on this card.  Stay tuned on May 1 to hear all about that!  How's that for a little sneak peek?

Remember that April is just about over (only 2 days left!) and that means the AWESOME April sign up special (you get a FREE Cricut Cartridge and over $308 in products for only $99 this month)  and the April Stamp of the Month are disappearing soon. Don't miss them. See both specials and read all about them here.

May Play Group Scrappin' Class Layouts (Timberline)

It's time to unveil the lovely layouts we will be making in my May Play Group Scrappin' Classes using the rich and rugged Timberline papers from Close To My Heart. You can participate in person or long-distance.  If you want to attend a class and participate in person, I need your order no later than May 1. If you are participating long-distance, you have until May 10 to get your orders to me.   (801.360.9896, 

The Timberline papers are so versatile that you really could use them for just about anything.  The plaids, woodgrains and houndstooth patterns lend themselves to so many things.  At first glance they feel very manly and rugged, but the cool news is that even though many of the B&T (patterned) papers have that masculine, outdoorsy feel, the other side can lend itself to something totally different.  Although I chose to use these papers for hunting layouts, you could certainly change them up for boy layouts, playing in the dirt, family photos, camping, fishing, sports, Autumn and so much more.

Dates and Times in April to choose from to attend in person:
Thursday evening, May 8 from 7-10 pm in Pleasant Grove, UT
Friday morning, May 9 from 10 am - 1 pm in American Fork, UT

After the layout photos, you'll find the shopping list. In order to participate you are only required to purchase the Basic Kit, but you are more than welcome to purchase the Better or Best, or add a few of those items to your Basic Kit.  You'll see kit totals along with the shopping list.

Feel free to click on any image to see it larger and in more detail.  For each layout I have included the layout with photos, without photos, and some detail shots. You might also notice that on the layouts without the photos I have listed the size of each mat for your convenience in choosing and cropping your photos.
