True Love 12X12 Scrapbook Pages

Hi Everyone! These pages were inspired by the CTMH Consultant Artwork BB using the Imagine Book (you have to have this book if you are a serious scrapbooker or just a beginner-it is the best)!

Valentines Theme Projects

Life Has been so crazy this past week. It was my birthday and I guess I just got overwhelmed. I had every intention to post these photos when I got the projects done however here I am at 1:30 AM on a Sunday night posting everything! Crazy! Most of the projects were inspired by other blogs and sketches at Splitcoast and Technique Junkies! Let me know what you think!

Here is everything I created. There is a 2 page 12X12 layout titled True Love inspired by the CTMH Consultant BB, a Mini Legal Pad with monogram for my sons teachers, a transparency sheet milk carton (that my son got a hold of before photographing), a altered starbucks bottle, and 5 cards. I will post the layouts in a seperate post for all to see and you would get to see both pages!

Close ups of the projects: Everything is CTMH as these are cards and projects for classes coming up in February!

What does Gerriann Mean?

Very interesting and so true about me. My name is not very common either! Humm....

What Gerriann Means

You are deeply philosophical and thoughtful. You tend to analyze every aspect of your life.
You are intuitive, brilliant, and quite introverted. You value your time alone.
Often times, you are grumpy with other people. You don't appreciate them trying to interfere in your affairs.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

Flourish Valentine

So I got a chance to make a valentine using the wonderful technique I found at Nicole's Site ( ). I really loved the simplicity of this card and using the Playful Flourishes and the itty bitty heart from Sensational Seals made this card pop. I backed my focal point with Sweet Leaf and Dessert Sand Cardstock. Fun and Easy Card!
