Ruth study day 1

I signed up for the Ruth study at hello mornings.  It’s a free study and if you are looking for a group of ladies that will help hold you accountable I highly recommend this study.

Today this study revealed so much to me.  One of the verses that was used as a reference in today’s lesson was Colossians 3:5. I must admit that when I think of idols I think of Golden Calves,  and other physical objects that people serve. But idols are so much more than that they are anything that blocks you from focusing on God. I must say that I am guilty of having several idols, which I plan on eliminating.  I am looking forward to what else God will reveal to me in this study. Here is a diagram of my idols. Till next time.


New layout


Here is a layout I made for my son’s soccer picture. All of the items used were made using the CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge. I love the the overlay and was afraid that the Cricut would have trouble with it but I think it turned out great. What do you think?

More than just stamps…

When I first became a CTMH consultant, I really was not sure what to expect. I mainly joined because I wanted to learn how to use stamps and make cards. After being a consultant for 6 months, I have learned that CTMH has so much more to offer than just cards, and stamps. I decided to do a series called, Much more than stamping, to share what I have learned with you.

My favorite product is the base and bling line. I have been making jewelry for over 15 years, but CTMH makes it so easy. They also offer a wide range of products that will appeal to the young as well as the old. They offer the basics such as the necklace and cuff, but they also offer bases to make hair clips, headbands, charms, and rings. The bases can be embellished using CTMH products such as fabric, paper, and jewels, or your own embellishments. The bases and embellishments are affordable, the prices start range from $1.95 to $5.95.  The possibilities of the base and bling line are endless. Here are some of the products I have made using the base and bling products.
