Busy August !! Oh my it's September!

Try as I might this "blog" thing is much harder to do than I like to admit.
Kinda like exercise- I love to go. I talk about how fun it is.
However, I don't seem to put my good intentions into practice. Sheesh.

Nonetheless...(I love that word!) Here are some samples of the new paper pack called "Typeset" which I was assigned in a recent swap! I will be sharing all the amazing artwork I received from this very talented group of Close To My Heart sisters!

I was thrilled that I was asked to participate in this swap!
It made me work like the dickens but the results are stunning!
Can't wait to post all the great ideas from these talented gals.
Each one created artwork specifically for each paper pack of the new Idea Book!!

So let's recap the month of August.

One daughter-Tara- has moved to Japan to teach English. She's brave and strong and a delight in every way. I miss her terribly.

One daughter-Jenna- has moved home from Florida because....well I think she was missing her family. And she's not sure what path to follow. Yet. She will. She's a smart and beautiful girl. Tons of potential fun out there.

And my Seth has moved into Phoenix and his own little loft apartment.
Jeff went back to work and I added a few more hours at my part time job.
And then August was GONE!!

Anyhoo-I hope you enjoy these photos of my typeset "swap"!

I love using the 6 x6 My Creations Memory Showcase books to create a great little easel board. Great gift for every occasion. I'll be adding a photo of my kids laughing!

I used CTMH white daisy variety pack flowers (after soaking them in my cold beverage) with the new wooden buttons and black floss. Remember no naked buttons!

This little card I used the adorable Typeset Complements CANVAS (so cool) shapes. Stickers really. And black hemp. And the new black brads that look like tiny little buttons.

This card I used my cuddlebug to emboss a fun addition to the Desert Sand cardstock. The circles are from the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge -of course- that match the stamp set!

Last, a quick card with just cardstock and the top strip from the B&T paper.
Waste not want not. I love the new style of our paper.
Your projects will never have a little "ctmh" on the paper again!
Not that I minded!!

And there you go. Those are the cards I created with Typeset.
I thought they turned out well and show how versatile Typeset is.
I'll post the "layout" and a magnet in the next few days!
Promise. No more lost months!
