Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring November’s SOTM, “Capture the Date” which is  a set of 72 stamps. If you have come here from Dawn’s blog you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here on Helen’s blog.
This stamp set is $17.95 or just $5 with a $50 purchase.

To show our support of Red Cross relief efforts for those areas of the US severely affected by Hurricane Sandy, Close To My Heart will donate $1 for every Stamp of the Month set sold as a part of this promotion during November.

Don’t think plain Jane….Think VERSATILE!!!

I cannot wait to use this at my scrapbook retreat that starts in just over a week.  This is will be my go-to stamp set that weekend!  I’m also going to enjoy a unified look to my scrapbook when I use this set consistently throughout a whole series of layouts!

I completed this layout a couple months ago but hadn’t done the journaling.  This stamp was perfect for that!  I cut a couple coordinating rectangles with my Artiste Cricut Cartridge and stamped them in Slate ink.  I like using the gray ink so it doesn’t overpower the layout.  It’s softer than black.

I wish I had this stamp set when I did the year.  It would have been so much faster!  I’m not going to go back and “fix” a layout.  Onward and upward!

I don’t even mind my messy handwriting when it is in little doses.  Let’s not do all of it on the computer. And it’s sooooo much faster this way.  Love it!
