Year >> Noted (National Papercrafting Month)

Welcome to our Year >> Noted Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  In celebration of National Papercrafting Month, CTMH invites you to reflect on the thigns that make you who you are and on what you want to accomplish in the coming months.  With the help of the Year >> Noted paper kit, you can easily record your experiences and goals.      

If you arrived here from Heartfelt Sentiments, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using the Year >> Noted kit.  


Using scraps of paper from the Year >> Noted kit, this card was created based on Pattern #28 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.  The sentiment is found in the You Mean the World To Me stamp set and is embossed with Gold embossing powder.  Additional touches of Gold include the Shimmer Trim behind the Zip Strip of arrows, metallic banners from the Year >> Noted kit, and a Gold Metallic Pen used to outline the mat behind the sentiment piece.  


During the month of January, with a qualifying purchase of $50, you are eligible to purchase the exclusive Year >> Noted paper kit (retail value $24+) for only $5.  Or for an additional $5, you can order the Year >> Noted paper kit with an accompanying My Creations kraft mini book.  The paper kit for both options includes a C-size stamp set, stickers, cardstocks, and patterned papers, all specially designed to coordinate with the My Creations kraft mini book so you can have a yearlong scrapbooking experience.  Included on the sticker sheet, you will find a large golden seal.  Once the year is done and all the pages are filled, seal up your book and create a mini time capsule that you can open years from now.

    1. Thank you, Vicki. It was difficult for me to figure out a way to use the stamps with the special kit, so I just decided on a sentiment.

    1. Thank you, Chris. I thought the sentiment needed a little extra "something" :)

  8. Love this! The papers make it beautiful, the gold embossing makes it "rich". I am going to borrow your idea with my scraps.
