CTMH November Spotlight Blog Hop


Welcome to the Close To My Heart November Blog Hop! 
You should have arrived from Chris Hill's blog.  But this is a circular hop, so it doesn't matter where you begin.  ;)

This month we are spotlighting Christmas/Winter stamp sets.  For my tea box project, I used two different sets:  a Christmas set called I Believe for the snowflakes and a winter set called A Sip for the main images.

The instructions I used to create the Tea Box are from the fabulous Kelly Lunceford.  You can find her awesome instructions HERE.  The finished box size is 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 1 3/4".  Although I filled mine with various flavors of tea, this box would work perfectly for a set of 3x3 cards and envelopes, too.

I also created a matching 3x3 card to go with my tea box as part of a gift set.  I used A Sip again for the main images, and another winter set called Festive Frills for the sentiment.



Thanks for visiting!  Your next stop along the blog hop is over at Debbie Carriere's blog.

If for some reason you get lost along the way, you can always find a compete list of this month's CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop participants on Wendy Kessler's blog HERE.

Happy creating!  :)

Great idea! I have this stamp set and have yet to use it. I love your cranberry and black -- it really makes it all pop. Now I need to stamp lift although I may fill with VIA's.
