January Stamp of the Month

 Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Jenny's page, 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 project that can be used at any time of the year and features January Stamp of the Month .....'This Moment'......  available exclusively throughout January for $27 or for just $5 when you spend $75. There are 12 individual stamps in this set and it includes some great captions for you to stamp! This stamp set has so many possibilities so check out all the posts for loads of ideas.

We have these great mini albums that will make a great gift just as it is or filled with photos and encouraging words for a dear friend or family member......just a little decorated. They come in black or Kraft. I used this stamp set to decorate the front cover of the Kraft mini album. The best way to do this is to load the large 4x5 inch Acrylic block with multiple stamps....arrange as desired.

Choose an Exclusive ink stamp pad colour.....Ponderosa Pine and stamp images onto colonial white cardstock. My cardstock was mounted onto a 6x4 card from the Picture My Life Hopscotch pack. These cards are a great compliment to this album as they just slip into the sleeves included....quick and easy to decorate.

The 'love this' heart stamp was added after the large block was stamped and the masking technique was used to add the arrow to the image. Stamped with Sunset Exclusive ink stamp pad.
Using Smoothie striped Washi tape add the decorated cardstock to the cover of the mini album...the colour matches the Hopscotch palette perfectly.
Simple and effective, quick and easy too. The Hopscotch Al A Carte Hopscotch Picture My Life cards are a great addition to this album for quick decorating and the 3x4 Flip Flaps make it easy to add more photos or more journalling too.

Create great gifts for friends and family....better than a card.......reflect on 2014.....set your plans for 2015.....Go for it!!!

 "This Moment" Stamp of the Month is only available until 31st January from Wendy Hopper your CTMH consultant. I'd love you to leave a comment and follow my blog before heading off to the next stop. Check out ...Maz Wood
