Cherish the Moment Blog Hop

Welcome to our May Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring Cherish the Moment. We all have moments that we want to remember either with a card or scrapbook page. This set of 8 tags makes it easy for any occasion to be remembered. If you have come from Haley's blog you are on the right path.

Get ready to Mix & Match with Splendor. The mix & match concept is fun, fast and especially easy with this stamp set. Just pick your paper pack, pick your layout(card or scrapbook page) and get ready to Mix & Match.



I used the new Splendor paper pack and the "Corner Shop" design from Wishes for my cards. I randomly cut the parts of the card using the six prints in the paper pack. I also used the back of the prints to add to the creative design of the Mix & Match concept. Follow these easy steps:



Using the stamp set Cherish the Moment stamp the images using random colors. I used Topiary, Goldrush, and Moonstruck and stamped 2 of each color. Cut each image out. Make six tags using your scraps randomly as you design each tag. Add your cut out images to the tags. Embellish with coordinating brads, flowers, buttons, ribbon, etc. I used the safety pins from the Autumn Garden Mini Medley Collection to adhere the tags to the cards.
Adhere your randomly cut parts of the card design and tie a ribbon around the front of the card.

Add your tag to your card. Remember this is Mix & Match so any tag will work on any card.

Adhere your randomly cut parts to two more cards and tie a ribbon around the front of the card.
Again, add your tag to the ribbon using the safety pin to attach to the bow.
Repeat the steps above to make two more cards.
Add your tag to the card.

After you've made the cards and tags you can keep them in a box with a section for the cards and a section for the tags until you are ready to Mix & Match for any cherished moment.

Slide a clear cover over the box to hold your cards and tags together. You are now ready to Cherish any Moment that may come your way. Note: The box and clear cover come from http://www.clearbags.com/.

Now hop over to Jen's Jewel Box to see how you can Cherish the Moment with her creations.
