Feeling Foxy? Feburary 2014 SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog!  I am so excited about this stamp set!!!  I have been waiting and waiting for February to come. 

Whether you're starting here, or hopped over from Michelle's Blog - You're right on track!  Just follow the links at the end of each blog post to hop through the loop.

The adorable heart background paper is from the NEW Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment.  It has 20 double-sided sheets, two of each design.  If you got our Dream Pop special back in May and loved the paper....this is just like it.  One side has a glossy resist pattern.  Too fun!  One of my favorite items from the new catalog!!

Now it's time to hop over to Jen's Blog to see what she has designed with this adorable set.

Valentine Treat Tube

Here's another project featuring D1560 Holiday Tags.  The labels can be cut with the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge, which makes it quick and easy to whip up a bunch of tags.

I cut the cranberry tag from page 37 of the Art Philosophy cartridge

And then cut the white tag 1/4 inch larger using Pg 50.  The wholes didn't line up perfectly so I just re-punched them.

Valentine Countdown featuring cuts from CTMH Cricut Cartridges

Every once in a while I design a project that I love, love, love... and this is one of them.  I wish my picture could do it justice!!!  I used the Designed Decor frame from Close to My Heart

I love this frame.  It's quick and easy to switch it out for different holidays.  Just wait until you see what I have planned for St. Patrick's day!!

I created the countdown with some quick and easy cuts from all three of our Cricut cartridges.

  • Art Philosophy - fry boxes, lacy hearts
  • Artiste - labels on the boxes
  • Artbooking - heart swag
The tags are created with one of my new favorite sets - D1560 Holiday Tags.  (I have several posts lined up featuring this set so if its not on your wish list yet....I think it will be soon!!)

Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit

It's National Papercrafting Month and CTMH is celebrating with a fun Cardmaking kit. When you spend $35, you can get this exclusive kit for only $15.

I have to admit, I only ordered this kit because it was the special for this month. I wasn't super excited about it, but I am so glad I ordered it! It looks so much better in person and I love the glitter tape and washi tape that is included in the kit.

Here's just one of the five card designs in the kit, along with my adaptation. One of the best things about our kits is that you can vary it according to your own tastes and style.

Here are the pieces I cut, using the cutting guide included in the kit.

And here is card number one. (You can make two each of five designs.)
