November SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!

If you came from Michelle's Blog...you're on the right path. Check out my tips and ideas for the Around the Block set and then scroll down and follow the link to see who's next on the blog hop.

As always, the stamp of the month is only available this month. You can purchase it at full price or get it for a discount or free based on your qualifying order. Email me or check out my website for all the details!!

Hubby is home this week so I waited until the last minute to play with this set and I wish I had started earlier! I have tons of ideas floating around in my head for it now...but I didn't have time to put them into action. :-)

Here's my first project...


I used the Grace paper pack and stamped the house in cocoa on one of the texture papers. I used chalks to add some color to the house.

You could use this card to invite a friend over, congratulate someone on a new house, welcome someone home....

Next up: Gift Bag

Great way to share a housewarming gift, welcome a new neighbor or simply say from my house to yours....



Tips and Ideas:

Since the roof is separate you can make your house short or tall. I made the house on the gift bag a little bit shorter by stamping the roof on a separate piece of paper and paper piecing it.

Use the set for a home improvement or new house layout.

Make a welcome home goodie bag for someone who has been away for a while.

Make a little goodie box and send it off to your favorite college student - Love from home...

Make a gift card holder and put a card for a home improvement store inside....

See...the ideas are endless!!!

Now it's time to hop on over to Jessica's Blog to see what she came up with.

Here's a complete list of consultants who are participating in case their are broken links or you get a little lost on the hop....
