July Stamp of the Month

Welcome to the Close To My Heart 
July Stamp of the Month
Blog Hop

If you are coming from Traci's  blog for the CTMH stamp of the month blog hop, you are on the right track.  This month we are featuring a set of 6 stamps, Life is Wonderful, which is wonderful for  creating cards, scrapbook pages, or other home decor.  

After viewing my work, just hit the red link at the end of my post to move on to the next blog.  You will find that most consultants will have a similar link at the end of their posts.  So sit back, relax, and cull the many creative uses for this stamp set.  

I have been wanting to start a scrap project about myself for quite a while now.  So using the My Crush book, Wildwood, along with some Hopscotch Picture My Life cards and a previous Operation Smile special stamp provided the impetus to get this project going.  
(I just love how participating in the various blog hops inspires me to explore materials I've had for a while and start projects that have been on the back burners.  Even better yet, it often inspires my scrap group to get some of the same materials to get their own projects going.)

The small word wonderful is from You're the Bomb, an Operation Smile stamp set which is no longer available.

I plan to use these pages for journaling a number of wonderful things that I have experienced in my journey through life.  It is amazing that so many wonderful things have happened after some pretty troubled times.  It's time to record those and hope that they will prove helpful and supportive for any troubled times in the future.

Here's a close up of the top of the journaling page.

Products used: Blue items are links to these products on my website.
My Crush Book: Wildwood Book
Accessories: Flowers cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge, Aqua Dots
Picture My Life: Hopscotch Scrapbooking Program (sorry, no longer available)
Stamp Sets:  Life is Wonderful (July Stamp of the Month) and You're the Bomb (Seasonal Expressions Operation Smile Stamp set - No longer available).

Normally, I try not to use retired materials in my blog hop posts.  This time they fit my needs for this project so well, I needed to use them.  

Remember, the stamp of the month is only available until July 31st.  It sells for $17.95, however, with a qualifying order of $50, you can get it for only $5.  Visit my website to order yours or contact me.

Your next stop along the hop is Jenny's blog for another creative spin with this stamp set.
