March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Birthday Time

 Close To My Heart March Stamp of the  Month Blog Hop

Birthday Time

A blog hop is just one big loop of fun, creative ideas.  If you are coming from Krista's blog, you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Brenda's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature links to continue following the hop. 

This month's stamp set, Birthday Time, features 26 stamps and is available only through the month of March.  You can purchase this set for $17.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant. 

This month's stamp set includes great images for creating party invites, 
great birthday cards, or my favorite -- scrapbook pages.  

I used this month's stamp set along with papers from the Make Waves 
paper pack to create a birthday layout for my granddaughter's 4th birthday.

The flowered picture mats are from the PML (Picture My Life) page in the paper pack.
The smaller 3 x 4 cards were corner rounded and matted with black yardstick   
The smaller cards could be for journaling or smaller pictures. 

Let's look at some close ups of the stamping.

CTMH supplies used  (see links for a close up view of these products)
Cardstock: Black
Paper: Make Waves paper pack
Ink: Mini-pigment inks - lagoon, pansy, pixie
ShinHan Touch Twin markers: tender pink, colorless
Shimmer Trim: Make Waves

Thanks for stopping by today.  Now, join me as we hop on to see what creative idea Brenda has for this stamp set.  

Be sure to visit the other 25 consultants who have joined in on this blog hop for lots of inspiration.  If for some reason, you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating consultants on Melinda's blog to get back on track.
