Evergreen Memories Team CTMH New Catalog Swap Blog Hop!

Hi, everyone, and welcome to the Evergreen Memories Team CTMH new catalog blog hop!  I'm so excited to be a part of this amazingly talented group!  You see, when I decided to sign up as a consultant, I couldn't find anyone around here to sign up under.  I had already discovered Lalia Harris' blog, Crafty Lalia, and discovered that she is very talented and super nice!  So I signed up under her.  Unfortunately for me, she lives in Washington State!  But when Evergreen Memories organized a swap, I wanted to participate.  If you're coming here from Lalia's blog, then you are in the right place!

I chose Wanderful, because I love maps and travel themes.  We were to do one single page LO and 3 cards.

on my LO I used Colonial White for the base.  Other CS is Crystal, Flaxen, Gypsy, and Smoothie.  Ink used are Honey, Gypsy, Crystal, and Black.  Stamp sets are the Wanderful WOTG stamp set and Here We Go.  I used the CTMH Artbooking cartridge for the Cricut shapes.  I'm very pleased with how this turned out!  Other elements from the WOTG kit are the arrow washi tape and the silver metal circle.  

This card uses Smoothie and Colonial White CS and Crystal, Gypsy and Black ink.  Stamp is Here We Go.  I used the arrow washi tape and a purple glitter gem.

Here I used Lagoon and Col. White CS and Black ink.  Stamp set is Geek is Chic, which may be my very FAVORITE new stamp set!  The ribbon is the black striped twill.

Here is my last card.  It uses Gypsy and Col. White CS and Gypsy and Black ink.  I used Frame Flair for the frame, Celebrate from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, and the balloon string from the Cricut Artiste Collection.  I cut the pennant and label shape from Art Philosophy and the balloon from Artiste.

I had my new catalog Open House yesterday and showed off all my lovely swaps, which you can see on this blog hop.  Everyone loved them and wanted to sign up for many workshops, so I'm a happy girl.  

Thanks for dropping by!  The next blog on the hop is the amazing Gail Hopkins

I loved all the things you made, especially the travel layout. I LOVE maps and travel stuff too! I think I will have to get this paper next.
