Find Your Style (January SOTM) Blog Hop!

Welcome to our January Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring this month's new SOTM - Find Your Style D1452! If you've just joined me from Jody's blog then you are on the right path!
All of my artwork with this stamp set uses the all-new Wings paper packet X7135B (colors are Black, Colonial White, Juniper, Sweet Leaf, and Vineyard Berry). First up (above), is a 5x7 card inspired by Wishes - Simplicity (p. 106). The bird was stamped with Juniper ink on Colonial White cardstock, cut out with micro-tipped scissors, and then sponge distressed around the edges with a sponge dauber and more Juniper ink to darken the edges. The pleated ribbon is from our new Wings Level 2 Assortment Z1398 ($4.95). The ribbon comes in shades of Black, Vineyard Berry, and Juniper and it is sooo... easy to use. I simply cut the already gathered ribbon and adhered it on my card with a few glue dots! Remember, you can click on any of my photos to see them even larger up-close if you want to! Finally, I have a 6x6 card inspired by Wishes - Celebration Card Workshop Card #2 (p. 22). The shoe was created with Black heat embossing on Vineyard Berry Cardstock. I love how the heated black embossing powder gets so shiney and makes the shoe look like it has a true shine also! I used a ribbon slide from our soon-to-be-retiring (but still available while supplies last) White Daisy Mini Medley Accents Collection Z1136 ($5.95) and topped it off with a square clear Sparkle (self-adhesive gem) to create the buckle for my shoe
that is adhered with a glue dot!
I hope you have enjoyed and are inspired by my creations! If you'd like to see a whole lot more artwork created with this stamp set by the very talented members of my consultant SOTM swap group,

Want to create a beautiful scrapbook layout similar to the one shown here featuring our all-NEW for Spring "Wings" Level 2 papers and My Stickease??! Well, YOU CAN when you join me at one of my upcoming scrapbooking classes during January for just $5!

During this 1.5 hour class I will teach you all about scrapbooking the CTMH way (FSE = Faster, Simpler, and Easier)! We will create this 2-page layout featuring brand-new products from the Spring/Summer Idea Book ($5 supply fee per person, bring your own adhesive). I will also teach you all about Studio J (our online scrapbooking design studio that is so much better than any other digital scrapbooking option out there) along with other "easy strategies" for getting more scrapbooking done this year. I will explain everything you need to know about the motivational challenge and reward system I am offering this year to help you get more done! Each class will be limited to no more than 6 students at a time so each guest will have more of my less-divided attention, time, and help (so definately bring your list of questions and concerns with you)! All you have to do is CHOOSE ONE DATE AND TIME from my available classes listed here (below) and RSVP to reserve your spot in one of my classes now:

***Sat. January 1st (New Year's Day!)***
three class times offered today
starting at 4pm* / 6pm / 8pm
(*ONLY 2 spots left at 4pm!)
(6 spots each left at 6pm and 8pm)

***Sat. January 8th - starting at 6pm***
(5 spots left)

***Sat. January 22nd - starting at 6pm***
(5 spots left)

Please plan to be on time for your class as we have a lot to cover, so I won't be able to wait for late-comers. I do expect some dates and times to fill up quickly, so please contact me to RSVP as soon as you can!! I do welcome you to invite your friends who may be interested in joining us too (this class will be great for scrapbooker's of all skill levels including beginners and very experienced scrappers as well)!
