{Valentine's Blog Hop ~ 10 Things I Love Booklet}

After a long couple days....Two sick little girls and trip to the doctors...I'm back!

I have felt so awful about letting the readers miss out on a couple days of projects so today I will try to catch up and feature a few projects I had hoped to share with you all this week.

I had been working on the Rock the Block kit that CTMH is featuring this month as their current Constant campaign and I used this great ticket stub cut out shape on the Art Philosophy cartridge and thought this would make a great tag booklet one could use to share those special reasons that you love your recipient...

Now I wanted to make it quite large to allow for it to be used as a card or coupon booklet or simply as a gift for that special someone.

I cut out the covers at 3" and the inside pieces I cut out at 2 1/2"


I then cut out several hearts in various colors to match the colors used throughout the booklet.

With a few of the great stamp sets CTMH has I started to stamp...I used 10 Things (C1474), Priceless Love Word Puzzle (D1348) and January's Stamp Of The Month Little Reminder (S1201)  I Stamped the cover and each page heat embossing each number with Black embossing powder to add some emphasis.

I also decided to add some pearl mist to some of the elements of the booklet and so I took water and Pearl Paint and mixed them together to create this great and versatile mist. I use this often so I bought a little spray bottle similar to the one that CTMH Spritzer comes in and mix a bottle of this pearl mist up and set it up on my shelf for the next project I might need it for...To distress the outer edges I took my stippling brush and my Desert Sand ink and stippled all the edges of each adds  a little of a vintage feel...

Here is the finished product!

I hope that you enjoy this great and easy project and look forward to the comments!
