Stamp of the Month Bloghop for March 2015

Welcome to the March 2015 Stamp of the Month Bloghop featuring "Choose Happy"!

You are visiting a bloghop of over 70 participating, CTMH consultants this month.  You'll jump from blog to blog by clicking on the provided links.  You may have just been checking out Alyson Mayo's Blog.  After looking at mine, you will click on Pamela Ellison's Blog.  For a complete list of the bloggers visit

I decided to change it up a bit this month and decorated our cupcake box.  I wanted to do a concept of a memento guests could take with them following an Easter Brunch.  This would be something they could add pictures or do journaling to later.  Instead of a cupcake, there would be something lasting inside the box.

I wanted to do something crafty inside the box, but didn't have time to get it together.  But here is a magazine view from an advertisement in "Parent Magazine" of my plans.

The actual supplies I used for the decorated cupcake box are:
  • Designer Creations Cupcake Box
  • Brushed Paper Pack
  • Brushed Assortment
  • Sparkles Black Flourishes
  • White Daisy Card Stock
  • Exclusive Ink - Pear, Black
  • Retired Marker - Sunny, Cranberry
  • Silver Metallic Pen (not ours)
  • Black Journaling Pens (retired)
  • 3-D Foam Tape
  • Bonding Memories Glue Pen
  • Adhesive Tape Runner
  • Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon
I believe that's what I used!

Remember that "Choose Happy" is only available in March 2015.  You can click here to order yours or connect with your consultant.

Enjoy the rest of the bloghop!

Thanks for stopping by!  Nancy

Do You Want to Preserve Your Valentine Memories? I Have a Scrapbook Kit for You!!

I've been hearing that woman (and men) want to preserve their digital pictures into scrapbook albums but don't have time.  Traditional scrapbooking is very time consuming and MESSY!  I used to spend hours on just one layout and have my photos and materials all over my kitchen table.  Being one who doesn't like to stop when I am working an idea meant that dinner could just wait.  Too bad hubby!!  I won't be making dinner until I'm finished or I will forget what I was thinking.  And furthermore, I won't be cleaning up this project that has overtaken the table because that would be a waste of time and time is precious!!

Well, if this resembles your experience, I have good news!  You can get back into scrapbooking without committing your whole day and sacrificing meals for the family!!

I have begun to develop scrapbook kits with the popular, Picture My Life cards from Close to My Heart.  I spent just 90 minutes developing four layouts because the PML cards are so wonderful.  I just picked two or three per page and plopped them onto a 12"x12" base, cut and stamped some cardstock and stuck them down, added some Washi Tape and a few embellishments and I had pages ready for pictures.

And I'm making it super EASY for you to duplicate what I've done via a kit for purchase which should take less time than when I developed it!  Each kit will contain precut and stamped cardstock pieces, four 12"x12" cardstock bases, PML cards (they may vary), and enough Washi Tape and embellies to add the finishing touches.  Full, colored photo of the layouts are included, too.

What are you waiting for?  Order yours now with the secure, PayPal button below the images of this February kit.  I'll ship it out in one to two days from receipt of purchase. 

Thanks for you business!!  Check back often for new kits!  Nancy
