Birthday Slimline Card Using CTMH Make It From The Heart

Hello friends!  Sorry I haven't posted the past 2 weeks.  I have been having horrible migraines for over a month; and haven't felt up to crafting or posting.  I hope I have time soon.

For those who didn't see my previous posts; CTMH is closing their doors and the last day to order products from my CTMH website is April 30, 2024.  I am having a hard time with CTMH closing.  I feel like I am losing a big part of my life; and grieving that loss.  I have also been ordering the products I might need in the coming years.  I am also spoiled with the double sided colored cardstock; which is on sale this month only.  It cuts easily in my Cricut; so I stocked up.  Lol!

I love the CTMH Make It From the Heart books and had fun creating a couple slimlines, using the patterns in Volume 6. Some products may be out of stock; but it shows on my CTMH website which items are expected in April and which ones have retired.

Click here for my 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!!
