April Project Kit - Love So Sweet Boxed Card Kit


This month’s project kit is a pretty boxed card kit using the April Stamp of the Month called Love So Sweet. You will learn how to use the masking technique using Stencil Film while creating (5) spring themed cards and a box to hold them. This project will make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or for a special friend or order two kits—one for a gift and one for yourself.

This month’s local class will be Tuesday, April 30th at 7pm. If you are not local, you may order kits to be shipped directly to you by selecting the shipping option below.*

This month’s Basic Kit is $25 and includes the following:
  • Love So Sweet stamp set
  • 6" x 9" piece of Matte Stencil Film
  • (5) White Daisy 4¼" x 5½" cards and envelopes
  • Pre-cut and pre-scored cardstock
  • Link to the Design Space file for the box. (All pieces will be pre-cut for you in the kit, but you can use the DS file if you would like to make more in the future.)
  • Step-by-step instruction guide
Order extra kits without the stamp set for just $15.

Additional supplies needed:

Kit comes with the Love So Sweet stamp set shown below.


You will create (5) different card designs and a coordinating box to store them.


Learn to create the illusion of dimension by using the stencil film to create masks
so that your flowers will look like they are layered on top of each other.


Decorate the outside of your box with the layered flowers,
leaves, and butterfly from the Love So Sweet stamp set.


When you open the box, you will have a perfectly-sized section to store your cards and envelopes. Use the Design Space file to create more card boxes in the future.

Simply Beautiful Scrapbook Layout


When I am in a creative funk, I like to pull out my Close to my Heart “How-To” books to help inspire me. I wanted to create a simple scrapbook layout with some of the Feels Like Home papers that I had leftover from last month’s project kit. The How-To books have tons of great templates and patterns for cards and scrapbook layouts and are always a great resource to help jump start a project. (Especially if you are in a creative funk.) The Love of Color book has tons of color combination suggestions in addition to some great artwork inspiration.



I pulled out the Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 book first and decided to use pattern #11 on pages 26-27 for my layout. Then I pulled out the Love of Color How-To book and liked the color combo on page 81 because it was similar to the colors in the Feels Like Home papers that I was using. After looking at the patterns in both books more closely, I realized that the sample layout on page 81 of the Love of Color book actually used the sample layout pattern from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 book that I was going to use. It was the perfect combination to break through my creative block and get me started on this layout.   


I used the patterned paper scraps, some Charcoal, Mink, Sugar Plum, and White Daisy cardstock to create the layout and some of the images from the cut apart page in the Feels Like Home paper packet to embellish it. The title was created in Design Space by using a font called Amastery Script and cut from a piece of Charcoal cardstock. 


I also used the Budding Peony stamp set and Thin Cuts dies to create a few more embellishments. I colored in the flowers and leaves with the Watercolor Pencils, Clear Shimmer Brush, and Sugar Plum Shimmer Brush.


 I just need to add some journaling and I will be all done. CTMH How-To books to the rescue again!
