One year ago I transferred my love and allegiance to CTMH, and boy is it an anniversary celebration! I was a little apprehensive at the change – the range of products that CTMH has was outside my experience, and the whole ‘crafting’ thing was not something I’d done before – at that time I was an album maker through and through.
Well, what a journey it’s been. I’ve had to ‘eat my words’ many times, as I’ve fallen in love with stamping, cardmaking, and papercraft. I’m still not ‘crafty’, but I’m pretty good at seeing an idea, modifying it to my own style, and sharing how that’s done with others.
I still love my albums – how I work in those has not changed, I just have a bigger range to play with in them. I have created some beautiful pages this year (if I may say so myself!!), and have so enjoyed re-living the past as I ‘fill in the gaps’ in what should be completed albums.
As a team we have welcomed so many new members, some who knew of CTMH and couldn’t wait to join, and others who’ve caught ‘the bug’ through a party or class, and found a new family in our group of dynamic, talented, warm hearted ladies.
It has been an AMAZING year and journey so far, this first anniversary will be the first of many. I am eternally grateful to Jeanette Lynton, Brian Holman, Kristine Witfeldt, Monica Wihongi and Brian O’Callaghan for bringing CTMH to NZ.
So – for the part you’re all waiting for – I have two beautiful sets of the stampset Treasured Friendship to give away – one for my blog, and one for my FB page. All you need to do is write a comment below, and you’re in to win. (Open to NZ residents only sorry). Winner drawn tonight!
