Yuletide Joy – October SOTM

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring October’s SOTM, which is Yultide Joy, a set of seven stamps.  If you have come here from Nina’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:  http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.





This month we have almost 40 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month’s SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do – just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I reached for the Oh Deer paper packet for this card.  The soft colors of this paper packet, Bamboo, Cocoa, Colonial White, Dessert Sand, Fern, Juniper, Seaglass, Slate and Whisper and White Daisy paired with some Ruby cardstock really gives it a wintry feel.  I chose to use the Star image from the Stamp of the Month which coordinates with a Cricut Art Philosophy cut.  The Sea Glass star was cut out and then embossed in Gold and popped up onto a Dessert Sand tag.  I added a few accents – a piece of Sea Glass Glitter paper under the Zip Strip from Oh Deer and then a piece of White & Gold Twine doubled and tied in a knot to hold the tag on, I finished off the tag with two small Red Enamel Gems.

Now “Hop” on over to Terrie’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the October SOTM is only available untilOctober!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!

October Specials with Close to My Heart

I can’t believe how fast this year is speeding by.  It seems like just yesterday I was talking to you about the September specials and now it’s October 1st.  I took a quick glance at my calendar yesterday and it’s filling up fast, I’m excited to share that I’m walking in my first-ever walk-a-thon as an adult today.  I’m supporting my friend, Wendy as we walk 2 miles to help raise money to find a cure for Alzheimer’s.  I have card classes, a Card Cafe and Crafty Time in the Coop so I hope you’ll take care of you and fit some time in for things you like to do.
