March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly review of artwork created to showcase the Close to My Heart stamp of the month. 

If you have arrived here from Brenda's Blog, you are hopping right along. When you are done with your visit here, you will head over to visit Lillian and her artwork. 

This month the stamp of the month is Choose Happy.  The whimsical frames and flourishes add a light hearted feel to your artwork. 

I chose to use the frame and create a tag for my Easter basket made using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  To create the tag, I cut the "card" option from an Art Philosophy shape that mimicked the shape of the frame.  Several of these stamp images would work with cuts from this cartridge.  Then I used the Brushed Stroke stamp set to "color" in the frame.  It keeps with the whimsical theme and is fast!  I used the sentiment set from the Artfully Sent stamp collection to add my sentiment and of course, I just can't get enough of those cute little June Bug embellishments.  Now all I need to do is add my Easter treat to the basket and I am ready to give this to someone special.

Choose Happy this month when you place your Close to My Heart order with your consultant or me.  

Now remember to go to Lilian's Blog next to see what she has created. 

Have a happy March,


  1. Wonderful idea. The Art Philosophy frame looks great with that frame stamp.

  3. Love the "color" on the background! Great idea!

  4. I'm happy to see the Brushstroke image in the back. Another use of that set.

  5. Would never have thought of combining those two stamp sets

  6. Stunning, it looks great paired with the cut and the Brushstroke stamp.
