I don’t usually share layouts without photos but the little lady who will adorn these pages hasn’t arrived yet!  I fell in love with the soft sorbet & greys of the Charlotte collection and teaming it with this month’s Stamp of the Month, Balloon Animals, made a perfect combination for a ‘Welcome to the World’ layout.

I plan to put close ups of the baby’s hands, feet, eyes, etc. in the small squares and photos of her with her parents in the 4″ x 6″ spaces.

The die cuts in the Charlotte Complements (X7205C) work so well clustered together and the gold of the Treasured Puffies (Z3203) add a nice contrast.

I was on a roll and made a card for the new parents too.  It’s a 6″ x 6″ card.  I saw a similar one on Pinterest but  can’t find it again (can’t believe I didn’t pin it)  So, apologies to the clever gal who thought it up.

The Charlotte papers and complements suit any photo theme. They are only available until the end of April, 2016.  The Stamp set is available this month only. Place your order with your CTMH Consultant.

Did you like this layout and card? I’d love you to leave a comment for me before you click on the underlined link and move on to Denise’s Blog , Scrap Stamp Share, to see the gorgeous projects she has designed for you.

My wish for every new parent


Here’s a simple card to make for new parents.  I’ve used the stamp set that comes with the Snowhaven Card WOTG Kit (G1085). The sentiment inside the oval frame talks about Christmas and sweaters.  I cut that out so it’s just the frame and then I can use any sentiment in the middle. The papers are scraps from Snowhaven and Wanderful. Don’t you just love the textures on these little hearts?

Welcome a new baby

A new baby brings so much joy so I had to add this little word to the back of the envelope.  Two of CTMH’s new ink colours were ideal for this card – I’ve used Thistle(Z2640) and Glacier(Z2641).  The ribbon is Thistle Diagonal Strip (Z1990).

One other stamp in this set was perfect for the inside of the card.  My wish for every new parent is …

Don’t let the obvious theme of a stamp set limit it’s use.  Think outside the square!
