CTMH January Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the first SOTM Blog Hop for 2015! If you came from Stefani's Blog, then you are right on track! For a complete list of hoppers, please visit Melinda's Blog.

This month's stamp set "This Moment" is perfect for Valentine's Day! It's only $5.00 with every $50.00 purchase. :-)

I used the Heartstrings paper packet for my two-page layout. The format is from Make It From Your Heart Volume 2. All images were stamped using Cranberry Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. I added some White Daisy Cardstock for my layout base. The photo bases were also White Daisy Cardstock, but embossed with Floral Embossing Folder. I added a Title and Overlay, which I cut using the Artbooking Cartridge. To accessorize, I added some Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape, Red Shimmer Trim, White Shimmer Trim, Cotton Candy Polka Dot Washi Tape from the Party Washi Tape Three Pack (it's under the "while supplies last", so get it while you can!), Sparkles Flourishes, and some Stuck On You Puffies.

Color My Heart Color dare Challenge #122

Here are this week's color inspirations at Color My Heart Color Dare:

To make the card, I cut an Olive cardstock using the Cricut Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge at 5 1/2", then covered the cutouts with Cranberry and Sorbet cardstock. I added more chevron cutouts using the Chevron Border punch and covered it with New England Ivy Cardstock. I added some Cranberry Twine and the Zip Strip from Lovestruck for my sentiment. I smudged the Olive Cardstock with more Olive pigment ink for a distressed look.

Come join the fun at Color my Heart Color Dare for more design ideas!

Close To My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop

If you came from Dawn's Blog, then you're in the right place! Please check out Melinda's Blog for a complete list of hop participants.

Seeing all the pretties in the Seasonal Expressions mini-catalog got me so excited! When I saw the Amour stamp set, I knew I had to have it! :-D I paired it with the Heartstrings Paper Packet, added some Heartstrings Assortment, White Shimmer Trim, Stuck On You Puffies, Pixie Extra Thick Twine, and some Lovestruck Mini Clothespins. I ended up making an Amour-themed ribbon board (cut file is from SVG Cuts), three Picture My Life cards and a 3x3 notecard. Why stop with a simple card when the recipient is someone you've spent more than a decade with? Happy early Valentine's Day, hubby! :-D
