Cheers, 2016! November Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hi! It's time for our November Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop!!!! So Excited to share my project with you!
But firstly... If you arrived here from Wendy Hopper's Expressions of the Heart, then you are in the right place! If you have come across my post from somewhere else, thats OK! Join in! It's fun! Just follow the link at the bottom of my post to click through to the next blog and keep going til you get back here!

This month we are celebrating this set:

So this set would be so great for New Year scrapbook pages or even a new year card but to me it just screamed New Year Resolutions.... so I made this:

The whole book is 8 pages (including the cover) and is made from just 1 sheet of White Daisy Cardstock cut into 4 inch strips, folded in half (use the scoreboard for best results) and then tied together using Poppy Twine.
The only stamp set I used other than Cheers, 2016! is Jennifer's Hand which is an awesome alphabet set that I LOVE - it's small enough to use on cards and only costs $15 for a set of 45! I used it to write the word 'Resolutions'.
I used the Sangria Paper Pack, the eggplant and pomegranate cardstock from that pack, eggplant, pomegranate, slate and Pacifica inks, the confetti stars embossing folder, the sanding kit, gold shimmer trim and a star from the gold fundamentals assortment.

The star panel on the front cover was created by running pomegranate cardstock through the big shot using the confetti stars embossing folder then sanding it to make the stars stand out. I cut a length of  shimmer trim into quarters and then used three of those pieces to create the tail on my shooting star.

I hope you enjoyed my project. To get your own copy of the Cheers, 2016! stamp set, contact your CTMH consultant to place an order before the 30th of November, after that they will be gone.

I'd love you to leave a comment before hopping off to see what Shaunna has created on her blog:  Passionate About Pages.
