August SOTM Blog Hop

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 24stamps. If you have come here from Nancy's Blog, you are on the right path!


This month we have 64!! Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations. This is how it works.... at the end of each post, click on the link for the next person on the hop and then just hop around the internet and get tons of great ideas using this month's stamp of the month! Here we go!


I love this stamp set and have just started to scratch the surface of what I plan to create...but here's a couple of things to get you started....





Colors - Twilight, Buttercup and Sweet Leaf
I used the base of the present to create the fun background. How cool is that?!! Love it!!
The saying is tied with Sassy Strands




You can't tell in the photograph, but I added Liquid Glass to the candles, stripes and polka dots and cake platter.


The card design is from Wishes.

Paper Pack - Good Times
Ink - Chocolate, Twilight, Sweet Leaf, Buttercup


Now "Hop" on over to Kelly's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants to get some great crafting ideas! Remember, the August SOTM is only available until August 31! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free.
