Share the Magic - October Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring October's SOTM, which is Share the Magic, a set of 12 stamps.

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

This month we have 71 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 6x6 card was created using the Orginals Card Confidence program. The papers come from the Mistletoe Level 2 MyReflections kit, and is embellished using Cranberry grosgrain ribbon, colonial white button and Tulip brads. The cute tag adds a fun dimension to the card and the large space provided the perfect setting to create a focal point. This was accomplished by adding several identical images and embellishing only one.

Now "Hop" on over to Wendy'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 October 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Retreatin' Bugs

This summer I hosted a small scrapbook retreat in Blanco, TX. The retreat house is one of my favorite places! I was blessed to have my cousin, Sandy, and her friend, Jan, come down from Ft. Worth to spend the weekend with me. To make it even MORE special, my mom came out for the day on Saturday to visit.

Over the course of the weekend, we encountered SEVERAL insects and bugs - I couldn't resist including them in the layout - they were SPECTACULAR!

I created this layout last week...LOVED it! It is from the new CTMH Magic book. Other product I used was the Splendor paper pack, Pizzazz Irresistibles, Splendor Designer Brads, and Colonial White grosgrain ribbon.
