Stamp to the MAX Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp to the MAX blog hop! We hope you are inspired by our projects using products from the 2012-13 Annual Catalog. You may have arrived from Edie Bunting's blog, you may be a regular reader :), or maybe you just stumbled here by accident! However, you found me, I'm glad you're here! I am stop #6 on the blog hop. (The blog hop officially starts at 8 am ET, so if all the links aren't working, try again then!) 

For my project, I created a stationery portfolio inspired by page 147 of the catalog and Linda Heller at The only 12x12 card stock I have is Bashful Blue, so that's what I had to work with for the portfolio. Comfort Cafe was my choice for DSP. The matching color listed in the catalog is Pool Party, but I think the Bashful Blue works fine, too. :) 

Here's a look at the outside.  I used the new  Oval Accent Bigz clear die for the main focal piece.  I stamped 2 of the images from Reason to Smile (available in July for just $5 with a $50 purchase!) in Bashful Blue ink and then sponged the edges.  The sentiment is from the new set, Trust God, and is stamped in Midnight Muse, a new In Color.  It's attached to the cover with dimensionals.  The strip underneath consists of a piece of Summer Starfruit, another new In Color, run through the Big Shot with one of the Finishing Touches edgelits, another new product, topped with a strip of Comfort Cafe DSP and a piece of Very Vanilla seam binding.

The inside is a piece of Comfort Cafe DSP.  The pockets are Bashful Blue and Summer Starfruit.  They're also stamped with an image from Reason to Smile.  


Here's a picture of the portfolio with the notes and envelopes.

Here's a picture of just the notes.  I cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla into quarters and adhered a strip of Comfort Cafe DSP to the top.  Then I drew a line with my Midnight Muse marker for more of a division between the DSP and the card stock.

I hope you enjoyed my stop on the hop. Next up is Martha Haddock.
