Holiday Fun with Casey

Happy Holidays Everyone! Casey, here today to bring you some holiday inspiration using some of the fabulous goodies available here at Catch the Moments. I don't know about you, but some of the best layouts are ones where we are just catching some everyday moments of the holidays. This layout highlights one of those moments while we are putting up our Christmas Tree. I love doing layouts of our tree because each year it evolves and changes. It's also fun to see how much my little one is growing. For this layout, I used the American Crafts, Dear Lizzy, line and a few other American Craft favorites... Here's a closer look...
Here's a closer look at that beautiful ribbon!

For this layout, I chose to highlight some fun pictures we took on Christmas day of our little one. I love this layout becuase it utilizes non-traditional paper for a Christmas Layout. It's fun to mix and match different colors that work with the pictures that we took and that's exactly what I did here. Take a look!
I just love those AC journal cards - you can mix and match and cut them down to smaller sizes for that special something that really adds a lot of character to your's a closer look....

Merry Christmas with some Halloween Layouts!

Hi everyone! Hope you are all ready for the holiday this weekend! This is going to be quick, because I am literally leaving town now to start the festivities! I wish all of you the best holiday possible! So, I know it is Christmas, but I am just now getting around to scrapping some Halloween photos! Since it was Emma's first Halloween, I took a ton of pictures! Here are 3 layouts I made using the Spooky kit! Love this kit, great for scrapping Halloween pictures. I really love the purple and green added in with the traditional orange and black. Sorry for the bad pictures, it is a very busy, rushed day around here! Enjoy! I also added in some of the orange Jenni Bowin buttons! Those buttons are one of my fave embellishments, I use some on almost every layout!

Again, sorry for the terrible, crooked, sideways photos, but I am trying to get out of Chicago before it gets too crazy! Merry Christmas everyone! And be sure to check back Sunday for details of our HUGE year end sale! You already know CTM is the best place for sales!! Be sure to check this sale out! And we have many exciting kits, products, and activities coming in the new year! Plus, CHA is only a month away! This will be your place for sneaks of all the new lines!! Thanks for making CTM such a success so far!! Happy Holidays!!

Good Morning!

Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday morning! It's Marcie here to show you how versatile the kits at Catch The Moments are, and how easily they can be used together. For my first layout I used the gorgeous papers from the Vintage kit ( I just love the background BG paper on this one), along with the flowers and brads from the Vintage kit. But I added the letters from the retro kit, the chipboard butterfly from the retro kit, the journaling tag from the Wonderland addons and the Jenni Bowlin buttons from the store. I love how great everything went together! To get the paint effect on the circle pp, I used the back of one of the papers (I think it was a peachy color) and then drybrushed some paint over it and then inked it with some Tim Holtz distressed inks and then inked the edges.

For my second layout I used the American Crafts Dear Lizzy line from the Wonderland kit, but used the crate paper for the banner. The butterfly stickers and ticket were from the Wonderland addon, the chipboard butterflies were from the retro kit, and the button and ribbon were from the store. Once again everything goes so well together!

Don't forget to check out the kits in the store, they are amazing and are all on sale!
