This Moment S1501 : CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

 Hello and welcome to my first blog for 2015! It's also the first Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop for 2015!
If you have arrived here from Patricia Manhire's Creative Corner then your in the right place. If you landed here by happy accident then come and join us on a hopping adventure - just follow the links at the bottom of each blog until you get back to where you started!



So, if you know me, you'll know that I'm not that 'girly girl' - hearts aren't my thing and valentines day isn't something I go crazy over... so this stamp set was a challenge... until as per my usual odd way of looking at things I found myself madly cutting circles and watching as various creatures popped out at me.

Say Hello to Teddy and Frog:


Watch my short time lapse video of them being created:

Ingredients:
Cricut machine (all shapes are from CTMH cartridges but most are just circles)
Pear Cardstock
Canary Cardstock
White Daisy Cardstock
Desert Sand Cardstock
Black Cardstock
Cocoa Ink
Black Ink
Ruby Ink
Stuck on you Puffies
Junebug Puffies
January Stamp of the Month (available exclusively throughout January for $27 or for just $5 when you spend $75)

Tips:
I cut the tips off the leaf shaped puffies to make the eyes for Teddy.
To make Frog's tongue I used the back side of the heart stamp so as not to stamp the sentiment.
Teddy's eyes were stamped with the O from the HELLO.

A few of Teddy's and Frog's friends are on the brink of joining the party... namely Monkey, Fish and Caterpillar but they were running a bit late so you'll have to do those ones on your own!

January's Stamp of the month: This Moment is only available until the 31st of January from your CTMH consultant. Please leave a message for Frog, Teddy and I before you leap into Wendy's blog -  Expressions of the Heart.

Thanks for hopping by!

    1. Thanks, Denise. I'm glad I help you think outside the box... I honestly find it hard to think inside the box with most things - I rely heavily on the rest of you to show me how it's supposed to work!
