Hello Card Using Multiple CTMH Products

Hello friends! I hope everyone is doing well.  It is so hot across the US.  I hope it is cooler for some of you at least.  I feel bad for anyone having to work outside in this heat.  

I have been trying to use some of my favorite CTMH papers; because I bought several packs of them.  It is easy to go overboard in buying crafting supplies; as most of you are well aware of.  If I like something, I want to have it for a while; even when it retires.  LOL!  I was doing an inventory of papers and found I had bought a lot more than I thought I had.  Isn't that what always happens?  

I did an Excel spreadsheet filing them by name and container.  This way I can find what I want, instead of searching through all the containers.  LOL!  

This is CTMH Chelsea Gardens Paper Pack.  The older packs came with 2 sheets of the Picture My Life cards; so some of my 4 cards (I seem stuck on the number 4 lately) were created with cutting those PML cards up. This one used some of those.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!

  3. This has been a brutal summer and guess what? At this very moment, our Central Air has stopped blowing cold. Luckily we have 2 window units to use until we can get it serviced. I live in Florida but willing to go north this winter LOL. Your card is lovely, as always, so inspirational. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Funday Challenge, we always enjoy seeing everyone's creativity.
