Bulk Card Workshop using the new CTMH Wishes book

Last weekend I hosted a workshop. It originally started out being a scrapbooking workshop but since it was only Michelle and I there together we decided to do one of Jeanette Lynton's new Bulk card workshops from the new book Wishes. It's a 20 card workshop, includes all the cutting tempates and card patterns. We split the cards and each kept 10 (sorry only 9 are in the picture). They are all Birthday cards. Now we each have a stash to grab from when we need a Birthday card!
PS....sorry I've been Missing in Action this summer. I've had a lot going on but I hope to get back to crafting soon! I'm open for questions and comments anytime though even if I am not posting!

Moon Doggie Workshop on the Go

If you haven't already tried one of the CTMH Workshops on the Go
you should! I LOVE these workshops. The layouts are stunning and I end up with three 2 page layouts and with a few extra pieces of cardstock I still have enough paper left over to complete some more. Since I have been doing these workshops on the go I think I've completed more pages than I ever would have on my own because the cutting directions are right there in front of me and everything is color co-ordinated.
If you don't have pictures that will fit exactly or you don't like the title, it's easy to change that. Just look at my layout. The first picture is the WOTG layout and the bottom one is mine. I changed the title and the 1st page called for a 5 1/2x8 photo (which I didn't have). I had 2, 4x6 photos that went well with the rest of my photos so I cut them down to 4 x 5 1/2 and shifted things a bit and ended up with the layout you see!
I'm planning on doing the Moon Doggie WOTG at my house on Saturday July 11th at 12:30pm. If you'd like to come just let me know. RSVP and pre-pay by Friday July 3rd if you plan to attend. Let me know if you'd like the Basic, Better or Best option.

Father's Day Card

I finally got cracking and made this Father's Day card for Jeff (from Abby).
It's the first time I've tried stictching on my cards. I've always just thought it was
way too time consuming and refused to spend that much time on 1 card. Since
this was for my very special husband who is in Iraq and missing us, I decided to make it extra special. I hope he enjoys it!
For the stitching, I used the placement guide stamp set and then pierced all the dots with my piercing tool prior to stitching. I found that made it so much easier to find the holes from the back of the paper. For anyone who hasn't yet tried stitching on your projects, once you try you'll be hooked!
Card: 4.5x4.5
Template from Wishes
Stamps used: Placement Guide, February Word Puzzle (I love you), June Word Puzzle (DAD)
Connections Club gift

I'm addicted to these new "My Creations 3-Ring Binder" albums.
They are cheap ($5.95) and this whole album took me a max of 2.5 hours.
What a sense of accomplishment when you can sit down and complete
a whole album in an evening.
Also, this little album is the perfect gift for a baby shower, etc.
I want to mention that the design for this album was not my original creation (Thanks to Nona D. for sharing these instructions with me) but I will be working on making several others in the near future using different papers.
Here's the recipe:
1/4" Hole Punch
Colors: Desert Sand, Tulip, Dutch Blue, Sunflower, White Daisy
