August SOTM Blog Hop

WOW...I'm so excited the NEW Autumn/Winter Idea Book goes live TODAY...August 1st.  This month's featured SOTM is "A Chocolate Affair"...this is such an adorable stamp set that can be used for so many occasions.  I started preparing for this project by staring at the stamp set for a few days...ever done that?  Well, I had so many ideas, but I really wanted to step outside the box with lets get started with the hop....This month we have 60 Consultants participating, if you are coming here from Lisa Sargent's Blog you're on the right path.

 I went with a Halloween themed project
This is a match stick treat holder box that measures a whopping 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches.  Tiny and cute :)
 All the shapes are cut with the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, from pages 70 & 71, except for the box, its handmade.
 When I was needed something...stickles and glitter pens....that will work.
 Oh...and one of my favorite new embellishments "Black Mini Medley Assortments" with a touch of liquid pearls in the center of the sequin dots.

 Below is a close up of the SOTM
