May's Stamp of the Month...."Pinwheel"

Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
May 2013's Stamp of the Month is called.....

The blog hop makes a circle so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back and you will have made it through them all.  If you have already started and are coming from Sheila Bennett's blog, "Sheila's Stamping Stuff"then you are on the right track.

Last year, I worked a vendor event with my friend and sister CTMH consultant and we created cute little fry boxes using Dotty for You papers for our "hostess packets". Since I have a vendor event coming up this month, I thought I would essentially recreate the idea using May's (National Scrapbooking Month) promotional paper pack, Dream Pop and this month's stamp of the month. 
The pinwheels are hand-cut, but the banner and fry box are cut using Close to My Heart's Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. 
For the coral/orange colored pinwheel, I stamped two pinwheels and then cut the solid part of the image out of one and used foam tape to adhere to the top of the other.
 Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Papers:  Dream Pop, White Daisy CS
Here's a look at the entire stamp set...

Remember, if you love what you've seen so far along your SOTM Blog Hop journey, and you want your own "Pinwheel" stamp set or want to get it for the amazingly low price of $5, be sure to contact your Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.  If you don't already have a consultant, I'd love to be yours.  You can find details on the "Stamp of the Month" by clicking on the "Promotions" tab at the top of the page or purchase your SOTM here.  Of course, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If you have time, take a moment or two to check out the rest of my blog.  If you enjoy your visit, then please consider "Following Me", signing up to receive blog updates, and/or leaving a comment (we all love comments...the nice ones anyway), then be sure to continue along on the hop by heading over to Vicki Price's blog, "The Price of Paper" and check out her project.

If for some reason you get lost along the way, you can always find a list of all this month's CTMH SOTM Blog Hop participants on Kathleen's blog.

Happy hopping!

    1. It's a fry box. It's on the Art Philosophy cartridge. It was just a cute way to present the hostess information. The box contains a wish list, invitation post cards, business opportunity flyer and a petite perk.

  4. Such a stuning little gift box and I love the layered pinwheel.

  5. This is super cute! What size did you cut the fry box at? LOVE it!!

    1. OMgoodness. It's been so long that I don't 100% remember. However, I seem to remember cutting it to "Fit to Page". I think that was it. Btw...thanks Sarita for the compliment! :)


I appreciate you taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It means a lot to me. :) Thank you!
