September Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is, Thriller, a set of 9 stamps.

If you have come here from Jenna's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning.

This month we have 67 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!

This is a 6x6 card - the mat is a 3 x 2.5 piece of Gypsy B&T from the NEW CTMH Hooligans paper pack. I then cut a piece of transparency paper at 2.5 x 2 and used the black STAZ-ON ink to stamp the skull stamp. On the back side of the transparency, I used my CTMH paint brush set, (I chose the sponge brush) and brushed a light coat of our white ceramacoat paint. After drying, I punched holes for my ribbon and tied on the transparency.

Other products used included white organdy ribbon (3/8"), Stars Dimensional Elements and the new licorice opaque beads.

Now "Hop" on over to Katherine'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! Remember, the SOTM is only available until the end of September! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Creative Corner - Happy Birthday!

Hello Friends!

I have missed our Creative Corner the last couple of weeks! Life became a tad crazy, and I have been away from the computer!

I just had to share this piece of art with you...Recently, my friend, Colette Jensen, celebrated her birthday. Her dear long-time friend, Vicki Gossard, created a fun card and topped her gift with this adorable birthday cake. Vicki created this using a small tealight candle that is operated by a watch battery. Isn't is just the cutest thing?!

Hope you enjoy and find some creative inspiration from this precious gift.

Loving Hearts 2010 Stamp Camp

Recently, I hosted our team Stamp Camp. This is where we celebrated the fun new products that are coming in the new CTMH Autumn/Winter 2010 catalog.

It was a day full of fun, fellowship and creating. We even had a visit from our newest team member, Leighla, who was 1 week old...the proud new Grandma, Wendi Klupenger, is holding her in the picture.

I am so appreciative of each one who came and shared the day with us - it was so uplifting and inspiring to my spirit!

Also, I want to share a HUGE thanks to Danon Hassall who created and shared a WONDERFUL Hooligans workshop with us - I can't wait to create this with my customers!!!

Keep an eye out for more fun artwork created at Stamp Camp!
