Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is It’s Your Day, a set of stamps. If you have come here from Pam’s Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!
This month we have 64 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! So here we go!
I chose to create a birthday layout for my almost two year old! She will actually be turning two on Sunday, August 2nd. We will have her BIG birthday party the following weekend since I am at the Close To My Heart Leadership Conference in Long Beach, CA. I will be returning home late Sunday afternoon and we can have a little family party. I will add pictures and journaling shortly after and share the finished layout then.
Here are some close-ups of each page and some of the elements of the pages…
I paper pieced this birthday cake using the stamp set, then adhered it with foam squares and added some clear craft buttons and colonial white ricrac for embellishment.
For the title, I sponged some monogram chipboard letters with chocolate ink and adhered them with foam squares as well.
Here is the opposing page…
Each of the ‘PARTY’ elements were stamped and adhered with foam squares for more dimension.
I absolutely LOVE our scrapbook programs! I used a concept out of my Originals Scrapbook Program called ‘Dynamic Design’ featured on pages 116-117. All I had to do was choose 3 complementing colors of ink and cardstock along with a neutral…I used colonial white here. This layout literally took me less than 1-1/2 hours to make beginning to end!
