March SOTM Blog Hop Is Sensational!

Welcome to my Scrapi Traci blog, and I hope you've had fun being inspired by the nearly 60 CTMH consultants participating in the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.

If you have come here from Tonya Whitehurst's Blog, then you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete list of participating consultants by clicking here!


With Easter just around the corner, I think this Sensational Seasons Stamp Set (D1454) is sensational for creating scrapbook layouts to capture my family's Easter memories. I had fun using CTMH's watercolor pencils to enhance the stamped images. The new Sophia paper packet, ribbon from the new Pink Collection, brads from the new Pink Assortment, Cotton Candy and Pear cardstock, Cotton Candy, Sunset, and Pear inks, and my stipple brush were the rest of the supplies and materials I used to create these pages.

Remember, the March SOTM is only available until March 31. Contact your CTMH Consultant or click
HERE to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even for free!

Thanks for visiting my Scrapi Traci blog. I hope you'll take the time to leave me a comment and become a follower!

Miracle Layouts Make Me Happy

Frankly, I think you can't get enough of CTMH's beautiful Miracle papers. Although I loved last year's special kit, I think there is still so much versatility in these papers, that I'm thrilled to be creating with them again!

Check out my March Level 2 Workshop Layouts. I think they are stunning!

So fun!

Fun Layout with New Mayberry Level 2 Kit

Here's another layout I did for CTMH's "Make It From The Heart" Contest.  This one uses the CTMH's new Mayberry Level 2 Paper Packet, Mayberry Level 2 My Stickease, Canvas Buttons, Basic Assortment Buttons plus Colonial White Waxy Flax and Antiqued Copper Mini-Medleys Accent Collection. 

The pages are so special to me because it captures a special time in my son Alex's life.  An entire week at the Little League World Series Headquarters.  It was an incredible experience for him and one that he'll remember forever!!

Too Perfect Valentine's Day Cards

The NEW Sweetheart Workshop Kit is one of my favorites of the new collection which is why I had to do it first!  Plus, who doesn't want fabulous Valentine's Day cards for friends and family right before Valentine's Day.

The first of my Sweetheart Card classes is next Thurs., Feb. 10th, 7 - 10 p.m, to put together two of six different cards for a total of 12 cards from this kit!

Take a look at everything it comes with plus a picture of three of the six cards!

Here's a picture of the other three from the collection:

I was so inspired by the beautiful papers that after I created the six cards pictured from the kit, I went on to make many more with the papers. Check out more fun cards with Sweetheart!!

Sweetheart Paper Is So Sweet and Versatile!

      I love these beautiful versatile papers from the Sweetheart Paper collection. Just gorgeous and there are so many options for scrapbook layouts - it's really not just limited to Valentine-themed pages.

I'm so excited about the two layouts for my February workshop class scheduled Thurs., Feb. 16th, 7 - 9:30 p.m..  Take a look:

The cost for the kit is only $33 and includes:  Sweetheart Level 2 Paper Packet, Sweetheart Level 2 My Stickease, Sweetheart Level 2 Assortment, and Pink Collection buttons.  After making the four layouts, there is still plenty of paper to make additional pages (school pages, portrait pages, etc) or additional projects!
