June SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Wonderful Friend is a set of 9 stamps that include nice texture stamps an sayings.

If you have come here from Michelle Loncar's Blog you got a taste of the talent represented in this hop! We have over sixty Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products. It is simple to hop along - just click on the link at the end of the post to move to the next one!

Here is what I made this month.  More out of the pocket ideas for page protectors. 

The cardstock is twilight and the ink colors are twilight, tulip and creme brule.  The argyl stamp was used to create a border for the clear card front.  Dimensional "d" was sponged with creme brule and then stamped with tweed stamp in tulip as were the  Color-ready Alphabet letters.  I took a six pocket Photo Storage protector and cut it down to obtain two sets of two pockets.  These I sewed together and then sandwiched between a cut apart clear card (I cut down the fold to use one for the front and one as the back cover of my accordian fold book).  The attached pockets then create nice pockets for pictures.
The first picture is in the left side of the two part page protector.The buttons attach the clear cover front to the first of the photo storage page protectors (there are four pockets in all and a total of 6 pages with the front and back of the clear card).

Here is a detailed picture of the sewn together photo pockets (I used my sewing machine on zigzag but you could do this by hand):

Remember, the June SOTM is only available until June 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
