Wow! Can you believe it is already July??? I am finally adjusting back to real life after Convention in Disneyland. I had such a crazy, awesome, fabulous time – but sleep was definitely *not* on the agenda! 🙂

So while I am anxiously awaiting my new product for my August Workshops (Seaside and Wanderland will be coming up first!), I will be sharing some product sneak peeks and photos from my time at Convention. First up – my Convention Contest Layout!
Every year, CTMH has some kind of creative contest for us consultants. This year, we had to create a layout featuring photos about our life with CTMH – team meetings, incentive trips, conventions, etc. They awarded $100 in NEW PRODUCT to the Top 10 layouts, and my layout was one of the winners!!!! YAY ME!!!!
For this layout. I used the Cricut Explore with my canvas set at 12×24. The fonts are from all three CTMH Cricut Cartridges (Art Philosophy, Artiste, Artbooking) and I stretched, rotated, and italicized the words and positioned them around my photo mats. The best part was that I was able to use the negative portion of the black cardstock for my layout – so all the individual letters went in the recycling! Can you even imagine all that gluing?? I also used one of my favoritest stamp sets to create the chain link look – Distressed Backgrounds D1544.
To add interest and color, I cut rectangles from the Timberline Woodgrain Pattern Paper and Cranberry Cardstock to slide underneath some of the words. And, of course, I finished the layout off with some bling, bling sparkles! Here is a cheesy picture of me with my loot!
See anything new in this picture? 🙂 Stay tuned for more sneak peeks and artwork!
