This month's stamp set, Bear Hugs, features 17 stamps that are  great for card making, scrapbook pages, and lots of other fun paper crafting projects. I always love the blog hops to see the many wonderful ideas other consultants come up with.


This stamp set is available only through the month of July.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.  You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here.


For this project I used papers from the Into the Wild paper pack, along with
Mink (light and dark side), Sapphire, and New England Ivy cardstock 
to create a two page scrapbook layout.



Here's a closer look at the stamping on this layout.  I used the CTMH Simply Said Alphabet set along with the Stamp of the Month.  Flowers and other images 
were colored in with ShinHan markers.

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop



Welcome!

Glad you could join us today!  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. 

If you are coming from Jessica's blog, you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Miss Carries's Creations blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop. If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set, It's Your Day to Sparkle, features 39 stamps that are  great for card making, scrapbook pages, and lots of other fun paper crafting projects. I always love the blog hops to see the many wonderful ideas other consultants come up with.


  This stamp set is available only through the month of June.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.  You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here.

For my project this month, I paired images from this stamp set with True Love Picture My Life cards  (pictured here) and coordinating cardstock (Ballerina, Sapphire, Sage, and Sugarplum) to create the cards.  


This card will be for a dear family friend who will be turning 90 this summer.  The 90 is studded with Bitty Sparkles.  The flowers on the sides of the word sparkle were fussy cut from one of the PML cards.







June is a time for lots of weddings and anniversaries, 
so this stamp set comes at a great time for  creating those cards as well.


The design for this card was created by my upline, Kathy McGraw at our team meeting.


I was able to make 13 cards in all using the pieces from from this PML set with the help of my CTMH teammates.  We worked together on some of the other cards at our monthly team meeting, however, the sentiments on the other cards came from other stamp sets.  We had a great time designing together and making each other's cards.

Thanks for stopping by today.
