August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Blog Hop featuring the CTMH August Stamp of the Month, Something Spendid. You may have found you way here from Helen Onulak's Blog. My projects this month are for gift-wrapping ideas. The first box is a simple cube shaped box. My favorite part is the box top decorated with a large white bloom accented with the large leaves from the stamp set.

Project #2 is a simple Gable box. I love these boxes for those odd shaped gifts.

The hop continues at Debra Van Patten's Blog. Have fun!

Friendship Card - CTMH Clear Cards!

I like to use both the clear sections and covered sections of the card. For this card, I covered up the bottom half of the card front so that the upper half of the card inside will show through.

Card Front:
Card Inside:

· Notice the stamped image on the card inside is positioned that it shows when the card is also closed.
· A little heart was added under the card front layer. You can’t see this heart on the front but it is a nice little decoration when the card is open.
· The fact that the lower half of the card front is covered, you can add a personal message to the lower half of the card inside.

Card Front (open) and Back:

· Notice the CTMH double sided paper shows through all sides of the card.
