Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 


                                                 
                                                      
This month I am following {Michelle Stewart's Blog.}   We have 47 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

The August Stamp of the Month is entitled Framed (S1508) (Set of 12).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:




I found this beautiful card pattern on Pinterest and coupled with our new Close to My Heart Cricut Artistry Collection decided to make a card that I am going to send to a dear friend who has cancer.


I love the labels and the sentiments in the August Stamp of the Month and the Artistry allows me to cut the butterflies and the label so all I have to do is stamp and adhere.

Here is the card I made with the August Stamp of the Month.  The Cricut Collections now have a full pack of assorted cardstock instead of the chipboard Dimensional Elements.  The Artistry Collection has the Enchanted Assorted Cardstock which includes some of our new colors.  My butterflies are made with the new Eggplant cardstock found in the Enchanted Assorted Cardstock.  The patterned paper is from our new Zoe paper collection.  The film strip was also cut with the Artistry cartridge.  I cut our Black Glitter paper for the film strip because I really needed some glitter on my card.


The Framed Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $17.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between August 1 – August 31, 2015. 

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Brenda Lapp's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.

You can purchase this stamp set as well as any of the supplies listed below on my website.

I wanted to share this beautiful card that my downline, Aimee Berliner, made.  Aimee is so talented and has a great eye for design.  Here is her card.


Aimee stamped her card with one of our Hostess stamps, Exotic Flower (B1477).  She embossed it with our gold embossing powder.  This stamp set is so intricate and really pops on our Black Cardstock.  What a beautiful, elegant card.

I have for you today a wild and crazy birthday layout.  The colors are bright and happy and are perfect for a birthday celebration.  Here you go!


I used the Close to My Heart Confetti Wishes paper pack and Complements.  Don't you just love it?

The Pacifica colored starbursts were cut using the Close to My Heart Cricut Artbooking Collection.  I cut two of them and then cut them in half.

Look at those super cute stickers.  The title came from the Complements as well.  Did I ever tell you that our stickers are made from cardstock?  So much nicer than those thin stickers that look like something our elementary school teachers graded our papers with.

Confetti Wishes is on our retiring list, so it is while supplies last.  Don't miss out.  You can purchase any of the supplies I used on my website:  http://melindaeveritt.ctmh.com

Have I ever said that I love being a Close to My Heart Consultant?

One of the reasons I love being a Consultant is that I have lots of scrapbooking products within reach.  I don't have to travel to one of my neighborhood craft stores when I get in the mood to be crafty.

When I saw these pictures, I knew that I had the perfect paper and embellishments to showcase them.  Here is my layout.


The story behind this layout is Tweet was a sparrow and fell out of its nest and was raised by a little girl.  She let the bird go when it got older, but it would come back to the little girl whenever she came outside of her house.

I used the now retired Close to My Heart Skylark paper pack, complements and embellishments.  I took the bird from the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Collection and "hid" the wing that would normally be cut out.  I love being able to do that with my Cricut Explore!  Then I used the Close to My Heart Artbooking Collection font to spell out Tweet.  I welded the bird to the top of Tweet so my cute little bird is perched on top of the "T".

I cut Tweet out twice.  Once in Lagoon cardstock and once in Desert Sand cardstock.  I layered the Lagoon on top of the Desert Sand, but then shifted it slightly so my title has dimension and looks like it is distressed.

I love the blue and green colors and I added a lot of embellishments.  The words at the bottom came from the decorative zip strip from the top of one of the 12" x 12" patterned papers.  I added some mini staples as embellishment on the ends of the zip strip.

Welcome to July's Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.  Our theme this month is Summer or Vacation.  This month I am following  {Catherine Nowak.}  Who is the Stampers with an Attitude?  It is the Close to My Heart team lead by my fabulous upline, Kimberly Moss.

Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs listed at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

I decided to use the colors of summer for my card.  I also cut the sun shape using my Close to My Heart Cricut Artbooking Collection. Lately I have been playing with our Paper Fundamentals line.  These are papers that have an embossed pattern on one side and the same pattern printed on the other side.  It is so much fun to play with!  This card has an overload of our Paper Fundamentals line.  Hope you like it!


I colored my sweet kitty with our ShinHan markers.  Couldn't resist adding a few gold sequins!

I used the card sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #278.  I will be linking this card to that challenge.



I flipped the sketch a little to accommodate my cute little orange kitty I stamped using the Close to My Heart stamp set, Friendly Pets (B1481).

I want to thank you for visiting my blog.  The next very talented artist for you to visit on our blog hop is {Wendy Taylor}.
