Rock the Block - December 18

January is National Papercrafting Month!  Close To My Heart is once again introducing a fun new project to celebrate!  Starting today, December 19 through January 31st, you can order this special Rock the Block set! This set includes the My Creation Collage Cubes (a pre-view to one of the New Products in our 2012 Spring Summer Idea Book!) and an EXCLUSIVE fun E-size stamp set!

There are so many great things you can do with these cute little 2x2 collage cubes!  To help give YOU some ideas, several Close To My Heart consultants are participating in a Rock The Block Blog Hop!  If you came here from Mary's blog, then you are on the right trace!  When you are finished seeing what I created, hop over to the next blog and get inspired!

I decided to create a Family picture collage!  I used the Dreamin' stickease to accent my cubes along with the stamps.   Stickease is a great way to decorate your cubes because they look dimensional (like my buttons) but are flat so that your cubes won't be wobbly!  I applied my pictures and cardstock to my cubes using our Bonding Memories Glue.

Here are pictures of each side of my cubes!

For the Final Side - I decided to make a display and took the blocks out of the box!  You can make a phrase or words to display on your mantel or desk!  

And finally, here is the box that holds the cubes!

Isn't the stickease just perfect?!  After I finished this box I thought about the Believe stickease and how that would make a really cute collage of Christmas pictures!  

Now hop on over to my wonderful friend Krista's blog and see what she has created for you!

If you'd like to order the special kit, you can order directly from my website at or contact me!  This kit is a $44 value and you can get it for just $15!!!  (with a $25 purchase).   The collage cubes will be available in the new 2012 Spring Summer Idea Book but the stamp set is exclusive to this special!  It will NOT be in the Book!  So order today!
