Love Is Book

I recently participated in a swap with other consultants. Each of us signed up for a part of the Bible verse from I Corinthians 13:4-8. We made 18 pages of our part of the verse and then swapped pages to have a complete book. The rules were to use That's Amore paper and two embellishments. I made the "love is kind." page. I had the pages before Valentine's Day and bound it with my Bind It All machine. I thought about giving it to my parents as a gift, but I bought them dinner instead. Now I can keep the book for myself!

Stationary Box

This is another project I worked on at my weekend retreat. I took the directions with me and was surprised when Michon, a fellow CTMH consultant had them too! When we started making our boxes a few others joined us. They all looked great. I'm still working on mine. My tags are not decorated, and I'm not sure what to do with my flaps. It's a little awkward when it closes. You can find the directions here.

Supplies (Close To My Heart, unless otherwise stated): Cardstock and Patterned Paper from Unforgettable, Aspiration Stamp Set, Kanji Phrases Stamp Set, Cocoa Ink, Blush Ink, Sorbet Ink, Cocoa Ribbon, Pewter Designer Brads, Sparkles, Love Letters Rub-Ons in Chocolate, Paper Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), Die cut tags (Cricut machine)
