Worldwide December SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's SOTM, which is Cutie Pie, a set of 11 stamps.  

If you have come here from Michelle'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.

 This month we have 62 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 have created a double page layout of my son's second birthday using this stamp set, as is it is versatile enough to use with masculine and feminine themes. Bright yellows paired with shades of blue, numbers and cupcakes is a perfect scheme for a birthday celebration. Black photo mats helped to anchor all of the photos and stop this layout from being too busy.

The left hand page features some yellow fussy cut cupcakes, as well as one of the sentiments from the stamp set. Accents of Confetti Wishes paper help with the birthday feel, and I have used some touches of the new blue shimmer trim.

The right hand page features my favourite family and party photos, which matched perfectly with the "the sweetest" stamp set. I was very proud of my cow cake, so made sure that featured on the layout as well!

My son had a great second birthday, and I am glad that I was able to capture these memories using such a fun paper pack and Stamp of the Month.

Now "Hop" on over to Katy'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 December SOTM is only available until 31st December!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
