I love this paper so much I couldn't leave those tiny little scraps pieces behind.  With only three addition sheets of cardstocks (Creme Brulee, Colonial White and Chocolate) I was able to create 6 beautiful cards with the featured stamp set plus the Wonderful Friend set (D1422).  The inspiration for making these cards came from:  Carol Labuski

A little Black & White Magic

I've never worked with Grey Wool & Grey Flannel.  The back side of the BLISS papers where just screaming "pick me, pick me".  So off I went to print a few photos in Black and White.  I love this picture of Jade, that flower was simply too pretty to change to black & White. With a little Photoshop magic, I kept the original colour and voilĂ .  I love how that photo turned out.  This is what happens when you're working on multiple projects. You'll notice that I re-used the second layout template from the You & Me kit.

Monthly Hostess Club ~ May 2011

The Bliss workshop on to go is great, it's neutral palette works with anything.  You can simple add a splash of colour and change this into anything you like.  After completing these two scrapbooking layouts I couldn't stop there.
 Here you have the featured layout
and this additional layout is from Magic:  Enchantment layout

A little Artwork from Regional Celebration ~ Toronto

This last April I got a chance to get away and part take in a CTMH Regional Celebration. Who knew work could be so much fun.  I meet new consultants and got a change to visit with great friends.  The following are a few pieces completed during the create and take sessions.  I love those sessions and even after almost 5 years they still amazing me with new techniques and wonderful ways to create beautiful layouts & cards.

Magic:  Palor Trick

Magic:  Final Act
We also completed these beautiful cards.  The first set of 5 cards was completed with one single stamp set:
Happy Moments C1437.  I love how all of these cards look so different.
The second set was a create and take session completed on our own with the company of great friends.

Here's a photo of my roomies and I with the Corporate Staff, what a great bunch of ladies.
