Friday Focus: Sharing the Love of the Charlotte Collection

Hi all! Welcome to the Friday Focus for the month of February. This month, the Kraft-y Hearts are focusing on the Charlotte Collection, along with a new stamp set called Share The Love. 

This cute and versatile set works perfectly for Valentines Day and so much more. Best of all, for every Share The Love stamp set sold, Close To My Heart will donate $7 to Operation Smile

So let's take a look at today's project:

These little matchbook Valentine treat holders were a snap to make. The matchbook is cut to 3 x 8 inches from Whisper cardstock, and scored at 1inch, 4 1/2 inches, and 5 inches. I stapled the 1-inch fold to create the matchbook and then matted the book using Smoothie and Sorbet cardstocks and Charlotte paper. I stamped the greeting on White Daisy cardstock and hand-cut around it. They typewriter is stamped in Whisper ink and the sentiment is in Sorbet.

Take a look at the patterns in the new collection. They are so fun and versatile!

 And what to put in these little holders? How about some M&Ms? I opted for Hersheys Milk and Special Dark chocolates and a Reeses Peanut Butter cup or two. (All heart shaped of course!)

Charlotte is part of the new Workshops Your Way line. The workshop comes with 10 sheets of pattern paper along with two cut-apart sheets, Charlotte compliments, 3 sheets of cardstock, 1 spool of black and gold ribbon, and a set of Treasured Puffies. You get to choose which stamp set you want to use. And might I just suggest Share The Love? 

Now for more inspiration, hop on over and see what the fabulously talented Lynn Darda is cooking up in the Bungalow!

And don't forget to have a creatively wonderful weekend!
