Damask Divas Blog Hop Featuring the Clementine Paper Pack
Published: Saturday, September 1, 2012
It's time for another blog hop! Wahoooo! This month my awesome Damask Divas Team is doing a blog hop featuring the new Clementine Paper Pack from Close To My Heart. I hope you'll HOP around with us and check out all our fab creations. There is even a GIVEAWAY that I am sponsoring over on the Damask Divas site.
So I'm not sure about you, but when I looked at the Clementine Paper Pack I immediately think of the new CTMH Burlap Ribbon. It goes PERFECT with Clementine!! I'm seriously in love with this burlap.... so of course I had to use it for my project.
I used the Close To My Heart Recipe/Photo Box to create this box for cards. Check out that burlap... isn't that stuff awesome? Are you curious how I used Close To My Heart Burlap Ribbon to create that flower? You're in luck... I made a video tutorial to show you how. You can check it out here...
The flower was inspired by one I had seen online that used burlap material and was machine sewn. Since I'm not very good with the sewing machine I grabbed my handy dandy hot glue gun and went to town making our awesome new CTMH Burlap Ribbon work for this flower. To make the ribbon accordion fold across the box I used my hot glue gun and just would do a small secction at a time, folding it over and glueing it down. Easy peasy! The C-A-R-D-S letters are from the Irresistibles Houndstooth Alphabet pack. They are awesome because you can ink them to whatever color you'd like. You just take a sponge dauber and ink them up and the houndstooth pattern appears.
Here is one of the cards I made to go inside the box... I used the card sketch in the new Make It From Your Heart book from CTMH. If you haven't ordered it yet be sure to add it to your list. It's only $7.95 and features tons of inspiring ideas.
Here are a couple more pics...
And as a reminder....
September is National Stamping Month, which means you can get the "It's Your Day!" Double Stamp Set all month long for only $5 with a $35 order. Awesomeness! It's such a fun and trendy stamp set... I know you'll like it.
Check out this fun fall stamp set that is the September Stamp of the Month. You can get it for just $5 with a $50 order. This particular stamp set is perfect to use our new Close To My Heart Alcohol Based Markers.

LOVE the burlap flower Mandy! I'm going to have to try that. I'm obsessed with the new burlap ribbon and have been using it on almost everything lately. Both your projects are beautiful! Nice use of the durable studs too!
