Three Amigos January Blog Hop

Happy New Year! Welcome to the Three Amigos CTMH Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. Each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.  Several products will be retiring at the end of this month to make room for all of the new products in the Spring/Summer Idea Book that goes live on February 1st.  Our projects this month will highlight some of our favorite retiring items.

I'm going to share three simple projects with you this month.  My first project is a Burlap Valentine treat bag.

I covered Dimensional Elements Heart Shapes with Chantilly and Sparkle & Shine Textiles.  The hearts are layered with ruffled Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon, a heart from the Base & Bling Word Accents, a bit of baker's twine from the Ruby Mini Medley Accents Collection, and one sparkle from the Pink Glitter Gems.

The next two projects are tags that came together fairly quickly.

This tag features the Babycakes Paper Pack.  The base for the tag was cut on the Cricut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I cut the background and texture paper 1/4" smaller than the sunset base.  The chocolate medallion is adorned with a sentiment from the Perfect Fit- Birthday stamp set and a border from Holiday Tags.  I added Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and Slate Striped Twist Ties that I inked to match the papers.  I curled the twist ties around my quilling tool to make them look like confetti.

My final project features the Frosted Paper Pack.  I used this tag for a Christmas gift, but the sentiment could easily be changed for a birthday, thinking of you, or thank you.
Thanks for stopping by!  Now hop over to Lisa's blog to see what she created for you.


  1. Love all three of them... overachiever!

  2. Such a cute reminder to pick up some retiring items. Color Ready Ribbon is one of my favorites!
