This moment S1501 CTMH Stamp of the Month Australiasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from the amazingly talented Maz’s Blog, Inky Fingers,  then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today I would like to share with you a little Valentine  kit I’ve been working on, using the January Stamp of the Month This Moment, S1501, which is available right through January for $27 or just $5 with a $75 order. You will want to get your order in sooner rather than later as this set is perfect for little Valentines day love notes, cards, or scrapbooking pages.

When I looked at this set to make my project I knew I needed to pair it with the heartstrings Picture My Life Kit $12 which is in the new Seasonal Expressions book.  am working on for my Monthly Pocket party workshop participants. I wanted a pretty way to present all the bits and pieces they will get in their monthly class, so I made my own box using the Close to My Heart Score Board $35.  It is so easy to use and gives a lovely crisp fold,. the moving angled arm makes envelope creation a breeze too.

I’m hoping the photos will explain how i created this.

Box Folds

This is the prototype for the lid. I later cut it from Hollyhock card stock and heartstrings patterned paper. I cut the stamp shape image using Artbooking Cricut Cartridge before I scored folded and assembled my box. the base is exactly the same but without the cut out.

I have decorated the outside of my box using the arrows stamps and “straight from my Heart Sentiment stamp. Its not a great photo sorry.

The 3 x 4 space in my box is to add the custom cards I am making for this kit  using the January Stamp of the Month. S1501 exclusively available during January for $5!

I spent too much tie faffing around working out how to make the box and the cards are still a work in progress. I’m afraid.

Come back early next week and see how I get on with those.

This Moment is  only available until 30th January from your CTMH consultant.  Let me know if the instructions are a bit vague and pop back on Monday to see my hand crafted pocket pages cards.
