Roomie Gifts (Received)

As promised, here is my post sharing the gifts I received at CTMH Leadershare this weekend. We all had a great time and I was so excited to receive these amazing projects.

First, is the gift I was given by Stephanie Brown from Connecticut. She made this wonderful 12x12 shadow box frame for me using the Pemberley paper packet. The photo was from Convention last year in Anaheim, California. I wish you could see the dimension in this photo. Everything is layered and many of the items literally "pop" off the page. The yellows and blues match my scrap room perfectly, and I already have a place of honor picked out for it to hang!

I also have a picture of the frame Stephanie made for Crystal. It's just too nice to not share, even though it wasn't my gift!

Finally, this is the gift that was given to me by Crystal. She used one of the CTMH My Creations Boxes and the Dotty for You Paper Pack. The felt flower on the front was cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and the deep cut blade. She also made each of us a 3-D pin, which she placed on the package. Unfortunately, I took the picture after I took it out of the packaging. The box is filled with Country Apple Bath and Body products. All-in-all another wonderful gift!

I am so blessed to have such talented and generous friends in my life! Thank you both for these gifts that I will cherish forever!!! Love you both!

Roomie Gifts (Given)

Every year a small group of my CTMH sisters and I exchange gifts at Convention. This year, one of our friends won't be traveling to Dallas for Convention, so we decided to change it up a bit! Last weekend, we attended CTMH Leadershare in East Brunswick, New Jersey. We pretended that it was Convention, and exchanged our roomie gifts there instead.

I made these adorable home decor items for my dear friends, Crystal and Stephanie. I started with an 8x8 shadow box frame that I purchased at WalMart. Then, I cut the initials using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. Once the paper was layered and glued, I added CTMH buttons to the inside of each letter. I finished each project off with a handmade paper flower that I created using eight scalloped circles that were cut with our punch. Finally, some rhinestone bling was added to give each gift a little extra something special.

The gifts were a big hit! I was so excited to give these to my wonderful friends. Stay post will include the gifts that I received :o)
