Family Is Forever

The September stamp of the month has a folk art style to it.  I have seen many different pieces of artwork made from this set.  If you haven't been through the blog hop, you can start here

I also participated in a swap and this is the lovely artwork I received using the stamp set! 



What does this set inspire you to create? 
Remember this set is only available through Sept 30th.  You can purchase for $5 with a qualifying order or at full price for $17.95.  And don't forget about Nat'l Stamping Month #30yearsofhappy stamp set.  This is free with a $30 purchase of stamps.  Lots of goodies this month at CTMH. 



Happy Creating,
Michele

That Feeling of Fall

Yes, it has arrived.  Chilly mornings, warm afternoons, school buses, soccer games, and the feeling of wanting to create and scrapbook the photos of the summer adventures.  Sharing my adventures and creations is what I have for you!





This card was inspired by Karen Pedersen.  The stamp set is from the Chalk It Up workshop on the go.  This money and time saving kit makes scrapbooking summer adventures a breeze and it is great for card making too!

Here's some details about Workshops on the Go!



Ok, she is a little scripted
...but she does give you the details!

Here's the products I used to create this card.

September SOTM Blog Hop: Family Is Forever




Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is Family is Forever.   If you have come here from Melissa'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:  http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html


This month we have 80 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!


I kept things pretty simple with this set.  The tree is stamped with the pigment inks onto the Scaredy Cat paper.  I chose pigment inks because it helps to "cover" the pattern under the stamped image.  The wrap in the Thistle striped ribbon adds texture and whimsy to this simple card. 

Now "Hop" on over to Justine'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 September SOTM is only available until September 30th!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!

Enjoy hopping along and seeing all the creative artwork!
