February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Hello and Welcome!



It is time once again for the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  February's stamp is completely adorable - "Balloon Animals"!


If you have come from KIRSTEN'S BLOG, you are in the right place!  This hop features art from 39 Close to My Heart consultants and it is a great big circle! 
 If you get lost, please head to MELINDA'S BLOGfor a complete list of all participating consultants!

Now for some art!

I had fun using this stamp to create a Birthday page for my Everyday Life Planner!  I LOVE my planner and I use it for everything, so each month I create a reminder page for special dates!  I used two planner pages to create the base, then added some stamped and cut out images, along with a Picture My Life calendar card.  The result - a quick and easy page to keep track of February's special days!





I used a few embellishments for a little bit of sparkle, and I was done!  I love these little animals, and now when people ask about the SOTM - I can easily show them!

If you would like more info about this set ( available for just $6 with your minimum purchase), please talk to your local consultant or go HERE for more info on how to order!

Now hop on over to MICHELE'S BLOG, where she has some wonderful art for you to check out!

January 2016 - CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

 Hi and Happy New Year!  Welcome to the first Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for 2016! This month's stamp set "Beloved Bouquet" has 14 great stamps to make your Valentine's sweet - or just to say "I am thinking of you!"



If you have come from  PRISCILLA'S BLOG, you are in the right spot!  The hop is a great big circle, but if you get lost, please go to MELINDA'S BLOG, for the complete list of 33 consultants participating in the hop!

I used the set to create a "Thinking of You" card - I love two step stamps!  I used a very classic colour palette and the matching cardstock:


I used Cranberry and New England Ivy Cardstock for the card base and first mat.  I then used a Picture My Life Card and added the flowers and leaves - stamped and fussy cut. Aside from my not so favourite fussy cutting, this card was quick and easy!




This set is so versatile and I can think of so many colour combinations that to use with this!  I can't wait to see what the other consultants have come up with!  To see what the next consultant has created, please hop on to BRENDA'S BLOG!  This set is available only during the month of January, so check with your local consultant or go HERE for all the details!
