decorated ctmh box


This is the ctmh box I decorated. At first
when these came out, I thought, how cheesy, why would I need to
decorate on of these?? But they are quality made, and the flap hinge is magnetic! I love it and can't wait to make more!!!
There are so many themes to do with them and organizing!!!!
This one will be for me christmas cards...I save them for the next year so I
know who sent to me!

I have a great passion for creating, and have been stamping and scrapbooking for over 15 years now! I absolutely love handmaking things and haven taken over an entire room in our basement as a"craft room".

I have been married to my wonderful husband Kurt for 23 years, and have three daughters ages 21, 19, and 15. We love animals and have two dogs and several horses.
I also enjoy hairstyling and run my own hair salon.
