It's October & that means we have our CTMH mini book that will be retiring at the  end of this month!

I ADORE the paper packs inside this book...and the "Hawthorn" collection is an AMAZING set to use during our autumn season here in PA. 

Check out these cards...


Saturday, October 5th was World Card Making Day & I was so excited that I actually was able to participate in that day! 

I created a couple different cards, and wanted to share these two with you today! 

The card on the left...was a card Designed by the CTMH Art's a closer look. 

Did you know that our NEW Cardmaking Workshop kits include an EXCLUSIVE stamp set & Coordinating Thin Cut (metal die)? 

Yes...and they are beautiful!!  This card design comes from our Hawthorn Cardmaking Workshop kit. 

In this kit, we are taught how to do some "stamp rolling" to achieve that beautiful multi colored grouping of leaves! 

The second card is a much simpler card....BUT....
this card uses the SAME paper pieces as the first card did! I just used them in different ways!! 
Check it out!!

You'll notice I cut the Charcoal CS in half...and shortened up the Saffron dotted, designer paper too!

I was excited to create a BORDER around the outside card, using the stamp image included in the workshop kit!!

By adding Gold Shimmer Trim & using my Gold Shimmer Brush....I added some sparkle & shine to this second card design. 

Make sure to ask your CTMH Consultant what's NEW in our Workshop is a picture of the Hawthorn Cardmaking Kit...used in this post. 

Here's a look at the BEAUTIFUL, Close To My Heart designed cards included in this workshop. 
You will create a total of 15 cards...5 each of the 3 designs. 

***And REMEMBER...this kit INCLUDES the exclusive stamp set & Thin Cuts too...AND this kit will be leaving us on Oct 31st OR While Supplies Last!!
