This Moment January 2015 SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the This Moment January 2015 Close To My Heart Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop. This month there are about 60 bloggers participating. If you are new to hopping, grab your favorite beverage, click the link (typically near the bottom of each post) that will take you to the next blog and enjoy the creative projects from everyone.


You should have arrived here from ***Judy Faye Garner's blog Judy Faye's Place***. If you ever get lost along the way, a complete list of participants will always be found at Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It.

The SOTM for January 2015, This Moment, is a D-size set of 12 stamps that is only $5 with a qualifying purchase.


Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 1" x 1" (Y1000), 2" x 2" (Y1003), 3" x 3" (Y1006) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009).

I tried to do something unexpected with this stamp set for this month's hop and I hope you like it.


Before you visit the next blog on the hop, ***Lilian Yeh's The Leaf Studio***, additional information about how my project was created is below.

I created my own mask by using the Arrow Line Border from Artbooking. I resized it, duplicated it and used the slice function in Cricut® Design Space so I had strips with 4 and 3 arrows then I duplicated the strips some more then welded them. I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mustard to spritz because I did not have any Honey Exclusive Inks™ Re-Inker. Here is a close-up of that area of the scrapbooking page:


I used a technique we used at the CTMH Fall Album Retreat in October 2013 and layered two ampersands to create the illusion of a shadow (in the absence of a shadow die cut).

Supplies for my layout (all from CTMH except where noted):
I love to read your comments so if you have a moment, please leave a message before heading to ***Lilian Yeh's The Leaf Studio***.

  10. You are so much more advanced than I will ever be with your scrapbooking. I love how you take and maneuver the cuts to fit exactly what you want. I know I would be lost. Great idea to use this for a Graduation theme. What a lovely gift you have created.
