October Stamp of the Month

 Welcome to the October 

Close To My Heart 

Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

We are featuring October's SOTM, which is Home For the Holidays, a set of 7 stamps which will be so much fun to use while creating scrapbook pages, cards, and tags for the Christmas holidays.

If you have come here from Judy Faye's blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and hop all the way around.  This is simple to do -- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move on to the next one.  If you get lost along the way, you can check the master list on Melinda's blog to hop back in.

This month we have over 70 Close To My Heart consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and many other great CTMH products in their projects.  So grab your beverage of choice and get your pinning finger ready to save lots of great ideas for using this great stamp set. 

For this layout I used this stamp set to random stamp for my background and texture paper.
You might notice a slight shine on the yellow candies on the right side.  I covered them with Liquid Glass to make it look like the cellophane wrappers on candy.

Here is a closer look at the random stamping.  

Products used
Card stock:  Cranberry, Topiary and White Daisy
Inks: Cranberry, Topiary, and Canary
Accessories: Bling Gems Gold, Gold Shimmer Trim, and Liquid Glass
Merry Christmas was cut from gold glitter paper from the Brown and Tan Glitter Paper Pack using the CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge.
