March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hi there and welcome to the CTMH Rose Blossom's March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  I know you have been seeing so many beautiful projects created with this gorgeous and versatile stamp set. If you have come from    Cathy's blog then you are moving in the right direction!  Make sure that you don't miss a stop-- you are sure to gather a lot of ideas and inspiration along the way!

For this project, I created a few cards using a variation on one of my favorite CTMH card patterns. I used the same paper and layout pattern on each card, but used a variety of frames and sentiments found in the set.

To turn these sweet little cards into something just a little bit "more," I mounted the frames on black cardstock and created a flap on the back of each one. Under the flap I attached magnets. The flap folds over the horizontal green ribbon and the frames can be removed from the card and attached to other things. My intention was to use them as bookmarks, but I believe the possibilities are endless! They could serve as fancy paperclips or as a clip to hold a few pages together in a planner or Crush Book.

Thanks for taking a peek!  Your next stop is Mary's Blog, where I know she has something fabulous in store!
