December SOTM Blog Hop- Happiness Never Grows Old

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's SOTM, which is Happiness Never Grows Old, a set of 11 stamps.  

If you have come here from Kathy'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 18 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 recently celebrated my 36th birthday, and wore a new floral dress that I thought went great with the Lovely Paper Packet. I was also really drawn to the Happiness Never Grows Old sentiment on this stamp set, as I thought it would be perfect for a birthday! Here's the two page layout I created.

Here's a closer look of the left hand side. I only used small pieces of the Lovely Paper Packet as I wanted the photos and floral accents to be the main focus of this layout.

Here's the sentiment that was my starting point for the entire layout. I stamped the floral background using the stamp set in third generation Evergreen ink, and then stamped the sentiment in first generation Evergreen ink over the top. I really love this effect! I also added some of the Blue Belle Pearls to draw attention to the title. 

The right hand side also features a floral cluster from the stamp set, which I stamped in second generation Evergreen ink and simply coloured in with our watercolour pencils.

I also added some fussy cut flowers that I stamped from this stamp set using Sapphire ink on Blue Belle cardstock and popping them up on 3D Foam tape. I then stamped some leaves behind the flowers in Evergreen ink.

You'll notice I also used some of the stickers from the Party Time Paper Packet and Sticker Sheet- because it was my birthday after all! Having a karaoke party was the best excuse to use these cute little musical themed stamps on my layout. 

Now "Hop" on over to Cat'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!
