Blog Hop: October Stamp of the Month

Welcome to the October stamp of the month blog hop, and with that...we usher in a bit of Christmas.  Yes, I did say Christmas.  If you are going to create for the holiday's, now is the time to get started!  Travel through this hop with a beverage of your choice on hand, pin your favorite ideas, and start planning your holiday crafting. 

If you have come here from Nikka'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 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!

 I just love the little house that is part of this set.  We have several new neighbors so I thought it would be a fun welcome card as well as holiday card.  I used the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut the snowflake on card number two but this set has several stamps that coordinate with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  This makes your creating speedy!  The other supplies I used include the Kraft Cardstock, Snowhaven Paper packet, Chevron ribbon (a special for October), Triangle border punch, Corner Rounder, Cranberry ink, Black ink and Shin Han markers.  Oh yes, and lest I forget, the "Welcome" is made with the stamp set from the new Artfully Sent Cricut collection.  Just love the font both on the stamp set AND on the new cartridge.  

 Here's a closer look at the other images and the possible Cricut cuts! 

Now "Hop" on over to Pam'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!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!

Keep your eye out for more projects I have created using this stamp set through out this month.
