“This Moment” ~ January 2015 SOTM blog hop

Welcome to the January Stamp of the Month blog hop! We have 60 consultants participating this month, so you should be getting a LOT of inspiration! What a great thing for the beginning of a new year! Today, you should have arrived from Traci’s blog. If you happen to get lost along the way, Melinda has the whole hop listed on her blog.


I wanted to make something fun with some of the fun papers from the Seasonal Expressions 1 book. I used the Heartstrings paper pack with some White Daisy Cardstock, and made this cute little mini album from the Artiste Cartridge. I added a little charm too, just for a bit more sparkle!


I cut out the mini album, and then stamped the arrows in 2nd generation Hollyhock ink on the front cover. I inked the flap with hollyhock ink, and it isn’t quite dry in the pics, that’s why it’s a bit dark. I stamped the little banner image on the front and the back in hollyhock ink too. I decided I needed a little bit more, so I used a small scrap piece to cover the front flap. I just used a pencil and traced it, and cut it out with my micro tip scissors.


I tied the whole thing together with some white thread that I have on hand, and attached the charm just to add a little ‘sumim sumin’.

This book measures just 2.5 inches tall, but it is perfect for little notes, or to maybe make some ‘love coupons’!

I didn’t have my artwork up earlier, because the hubs and I were at the dealership getting me a new (to me) car! The one I was driving was just slowly dying, and we couldn’t afford to keep dumping money into it. So, I figured I could share my new little car.
