Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Anne’s Blog you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it. Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from. Each blog will showcase a project featuring the Cheers, 2016! (S1511) stamp set which is November’s Stamp of the Month.
I know we have 2 full months to go of 2015 but it’s time to start thinking about your goals and dreams for the new year.
I recently attended the Close To My Heart Australasian Convention. We talked about goal setting for our business and were set some challenges for the next 3 months. I have set my own, much higher goals and wanted a way to keep a visual reminder of these goals for the next 12 months. Here it is.
If I meet the goals I’ve set myself, Mike & I will earn an all expenses paid trip to Tahiti. I loved going to Hawaii this year – Close To My Heart sure know how to spoil a girl.
I used the Paper Fundamentals for this layout. There are 4 packs – Enchantment (Z3126), Adventure (Z3125), Whimsy (Z3127) and Basic (Z3128). I love that one side of the paper is embossed and shiny while the other side is matte and features a subtle pattern.
The tags you can see are tucked behind the challenge cards we received at convention. I used 3″ square Flip Flaps to make a pocket for the tag to slide in and out of. The “I Can” phrase is heat embossed with silver and the Base & Bling charms are attached with Thick Twine.
Here’s how I made the hidden pockets…
Begin with a 3″ x 3″ Flip Flap from the Small Assortment pack (Z1747). Cut off the tab with the adhesive strip.
Attach the Flip Flap firmly to the back of your challenge card (or photo). Add adhesive around all edges of the Flip Flap and attach to your photo mount.
You now have a pocket made of plastic for the tag to slip into.
I stamped the lines and the banner from the Cheers, 2016! stamp set and hand wrote my title. The letters are for each month. At the end of the month I will record my final figures and see if my goal was achieved.
Cheers, 2016! (S1511) is only available during November, 2015. Full retail price is $27 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $7.50 when accompanied by a $75 order. Place your order with your CTMH Consultant.
