September SOTM Blog Hop - Family is Forever


Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 





This month I am following {Casandra Bennett's Blog.}   We have almost 80 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 September Stamp of the Month is entitled Family is Forever  (S1409) (Set of 7). Here is a picture of this stamp set:





I am loving the tree in this stamp set!  It is incredibly beautiful and I hope you will like what I did with it.  Here is my artwork.


I used our new Designed Decor Colonial White Shadow Box.  It holds a 12" x 12" page perfectly and you can even remove the page and change your displayed pages based on the seasons.  It has a magnetic closure and sawtooth hangers on the back.  The hinged back opens for easy loading.

I used the Seaside Paper pack and love the blue board look to the paper the tree is stamped on.  I stamped the tree with Slate Ink directly on the paper.  The hearts are stamped on Sorbet paper with Sorbet Ink and then cut out and adhered to the tree.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to leave me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Michelle Stewart's Blog.}

The Family is Forever 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 September 1 – September 30, 2014. 
You can purchase this stamp set as well as any of the supplies listed below on my website.

  6. I love how the frame you created with the Seaside papers really put the tree at the focal point of your layout. And your tree looks fantastic stamped right on the weathered board paper.
