Welcome to the October SOTM Blog Hop - Twinkle

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Melissa Robinson's Blog.}   We have approximately 45 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 October Stamp of the Month is entitled Twinkle (S1510) (Set of 15).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

The Close to My Heart October Stamp of the Month is always a Christmas stamp and I am looking forward to Christmas, so I decided to make a layout to use with my Christmas pictures we will take this year.

I have used our Christmas paper called White Pines.  This layout only took two pieces of patterned paper in addition to the cardstock used.  That leaves you with 4 pieces of patterned paper and a whole lot of cardstock in a My Reflections White Pine paper pack.

I loved the little colored lights and wanted to string them across the top of my layout.  The paper under the string of lights is the decorative zip strip that comes on the top of our patterned paper.  I added the White Pines Complements, using just a few, so I have more left to use on other projects.

Here is my layout.

The Twinkle 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 October 1 – October 31, 2015.
