October Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring October's SOTM, which is Home for the Holidays, a set of 7 Cricut Compatible stamps.  If you have come here from Beth'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 on Melinda’s Blog.

This month we have over 70 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!

Isn't the timing perfect for this stamp set?  You'll have at least 2 months to create tags, cards and other goodies with it this year!  See the red lines?  Each one corresponds to a shape from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge!  

Home from the Holidays CTMH October 2014 Stamp of the Month

I created this box of gift tags in preparation for an upcoming bags & tags workshop.  I cut the tags from Art Philosophy as per the sizes listed on the stamp carrier sheet.  The  gable box was cut at "fit to page" from the Artiste cartridge out of Glacier cardstock.  

My tags are very simple.  I didn't want to complicate things because I wanted this project to be simple enough to reproduce for quick gifts.  There's a little bit of layering and masking and that's it.  The circles were a cinch!  A 1" punch works perfectly!  

I used the Ruby Mini Medley Accent Collection for the shimmery Ruby baker's twine and the clothes pin.  

Now "Hop" on over to Jean'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 October SOTM is only available until the 31st!  It's only $5 with any $50 purchase from my website or just $17.95 like all other D-sized stamps.  Click here to shop.
