August 2015 SOTM Blog Hop


Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

 
We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is Framed, a set of 12 stamps.

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 over 50 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!

 



4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card

This is what I used to make this card:
     - Zoe Paper Pack
    - Glacier & White Daisy Cardstock
    -Glacier and Black ink
    -Glacier Extra Thick Twine
    -Coral and White Shimmer Trim

I cut the Zoe paper 4" x 5 1/4"  and the strip at 1/2".  The Glacier cardstock was cut at 3 1/2" x 5" and the white daisy cardstock was cut at 3 1/4" x 4 3/4".  I stamped the frame in Glacier Ink and then stamped the Happy Birthday inside of the frame in black ink.  The coral and white shimmer trim I cut the ends into dovetails.  I really like how the coral really sets off the card.  The glacier extra thick twine is just wrapped around the whole front of the card. 

This is a really simple card to make.  I really wanted to showcase the stamp set.  This is a really awesome stamp set.  Very versatile. 

 
Now "Hop" on over to Sheila's Blog to see her work!

Happy Scrappin'!

February SOTM - A Happy Hello

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 

 This month we are featuring over 60 Close to my Heart Consultants showcasing their artwork for the A Happy Hello stamp of the month.

 
 
 
So sit back, relax and grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the amazing artwork!


If you have come here from Krista's Blog then you are on the right track, if not that is fine too!  This hop makes a complete circle!
Here is what the stamp of the month looks like:


Here is what I made using this stamp set:

I used the Wishes How - To book pattern Top View for a 3 1/2 x 8 card.
I used some paper from the Wanderful Paper Packet (blue & white polka dot).  I used Colonial white as my card base.  I used Flaxen and Smoothie Cardstock also.

I stamped "A Happy Hello" in Smoothie ink right on the card base.  I stamped the stem of the flower in Flaxen in right on the card.  I stamped the flower base in Smoothie Ink, the next image in Crystal Blue Ink and then the inside image in Smoothie ink.  I put a green epoxy bubble in the center from the Blue & Green Epoxy Bubble set.  I did use 3-d foam tape to pop the flower and the strips.  I used some Flaxen Extra Thick twine to tie around the strips.  I used a sponge dauber in Flaxen ink to distress all the pieces. 


Better view of the flower with the 3-d foam tape.

Happy Anniversary Studio J

Lucky 5 Campaign for Studio J - Runs through November 30th! 




November marks the five-year anniversary of Studio J®, and that means it’s your lucky month, with five amazing ways to win through Studio J and Close To My Heart social media!
First, throughout the month of November, all layouts purchased in Studio J are $5! That is a savings of over 25% off of retail—an unprecedented deal!
Your second chance to win big must come by sheer luck: every fifth order placed in Studio J during November receives a FREE surprise Close To My Heart accessory in its shipping box! The accessory has a retail value of $5 or more.
If luck doesn’t smile on you in that way, you might stumble upon it by finding a little extra something in your Studio J box. Five “golden tickets” will be sent out during the month of November with randomly selected Studio J print orders! This “golden ticket” is redeemable for one of Close To My Heart’s new D-ring albums* loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors™.
For a fourth way to win, simply create new, gorgeous layouts in Studio J, select your favorites, and then post pictures of them on Close To My Heart’s Facebook page using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. After November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries based on their artistry and creativity and each of these winners will receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!
And there is one last way to win: take your new Studio J artwork and post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. Just as it is with Facebook, after November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries to receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!

*Offer valid November 1–30, 2014. Pattern and color of new D-ring album to be given to winners will be at Close To My Heart’s discretion based upon availability. New kits available in Studio J® on November 1 include Confetti Wishes, Snowhaven, Seaside, Pathfinding, and Scaredy Cat. No tax or shipping will be charged on the free item(s).
