Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring July's SOTM, which is For My Beautiful Friend, a set of 20 stamps.
If you have come here from Brenda'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 19 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 know this stamp set looks very girly and floral, but I wanted to show you how to use it on a masculine page.
Here is a 12x12 layout of me with my boys on Mother's Day this year using the Stamp of the Month. I'd also like to point out the country feel of this layout- all of the papers are from the Summer Vibes collection, so once again I was trying to think outside the box and show a variety of ways to use our new products. You'd never guess that this is a summer themed paper pack!
I absolutely had to use this sentiment with the photos of my boys, and I also surrounded it with flowers that I stamped from the Stamp of the Month and fussy cut. Oh, and the little pink heart? That's from the Summer Vibes collection too!
Lastly, I used a Summer Vibes PML Card for the journalling, and then added the large floral bouquet stamp the the bottom of my layout. In order to do this I masked the girl and simply stamped ther bouquet, then added some pearls as a finishing touch.
I really encourage everyone to think outside the box with this stamp set!
