Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Bog Hop!  This month we are featuring Family Is Forever-set of 7 images.  If you have come here from DAWN ROSS'S BLOG, you are on the right path.  This is a circular hop & very easy to follow.  Simply click the link at the bottom of each post to move onto the next blog.  If you get lost along the way, a complete list of all the hoppers can be found right  HERE.  

This is such a cute stamp set this month!  With over 75 consultants participating in this Blog Hop, you're sure to see alot of super-cute ideas and different ways to use it.

Here's a look at my project......

I was inspired by the pumpkin wooden shape in the Pathfinding Assortment (Z3012).  It reminded me of Fall, Thanksgiving and Pumpkin Pie-which led me to create the pie box on pg. 70 of the Cricut Artiste booklet.

I set the size dial to 6 inches and cut the bottom of the box out of a sheet of Pathfinding paper (X7186B).  The top was also cut at 6 inches, out of Champagne cardstock.  The hearts were cut from Artiste as well, at 1 3/4 inches and stamped with Glacier ink (Z2641).  I stamped the small flower image with Champagne ink (Z2174) along the edge of the box top.  I traced the lid, then cut a coordinating triangular-shaped piece of Pathfinding paper for the top of the lid.

The edges of all the papers and cardstock were sponged with Chocolate ink (Z2111).  The sentiment was stamped with Chocolate ink as well.  I added some Gold Shimmer Trim (Z1985) along the bottom of the box and on top for extra sparkle.  The bow is Neutral Bakers Twine (Z1921) with a Gold Bling Gem (Z2023) in the middle.

This box would be perfect at Thanksgiving to send a piece of pie home with your guests.  I would probably line the inside of the box with wax paper first.

Next up is BRENDA LAPP!  Head on over to her blog & see what she has created. Contact your consultant to purchase the September Stamp of the Month-Family Is Forever.

Back To School Scrapbook Workshop

All went well today as my kids headed back to school!  They were excited to see their friends but sad that summer was over so soon.  Jared was a bit nervous for his first year at the high school, since our school is 7th-12th grade.  He did great (only got lost once) and came home smiling.  Kadin started 4th grade & was happy his friend Matt gets to ride the bus with him this year.  He couldn't really remember anything about his day-at least not anything he wanted to share, but overall I think he had a great day and he loves his teacher.

The new Chalk It Up Kit is perfect for all of your Back To School pictures.  I love the chalkboard look it has to it.  I will be featuring the Chalk It Up Kit in September at my Back To School Scrapbook Workshop.  We will be using the kit and accessories to create 3 2-page layouts.

What A Hoot - Two Weeks Left!

Today I wanted to share a sweet little card I created using the August Stamp of the Month-What A Hoot! This 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card features the new Pathfinding Paper Pack, Triangle Border Punch, Gold Shimmer Trim, Gold Sequins and Neutral Metallic Bakers Twine.

The cute little owl is stamped and paper pieced together.  I popped his wings up with 3D Foam Tape to add dimension.  I love using the new Border Punches and adding Shimmer Trim behind the punched area to add interest.  I also gave him some googly eyes.  I used the Barely Beige ShinHan Touch Twin Marker to color in the word HOOT.

Just a reminder that there's only two weeks left to get this stamp set for $5 (with a $50 purchase). That's right, this set is only available during the month of August, so act fast and place your order before this cute little owl flies away and is gone for good!   You can place your order on my website HERE.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I especially love Halloween!  This layout came together rather quickly and I love how it turned out.  

I sponged the edges of the papers and cardstock with Black Ink.  The Complements are also sponged with Black Ink, clustered and popped up with 3D Foam Tape to add dimension.

  • Z1988-Black Striped Twill Ribbon
