November SOTM Blog Hop!!!

Good Morning!

I hope you have been enjoying this month's SOTM hop! 

There are 57 creative gals showcasing November's Stamp of the Month 'Cherish The Day'

Now hopefully you've arrived from Krista's Blog...this is one big loop of blogs so if you find yourself somewhere else along the way...have a look at the very bottom of this post so you don't miss anyone!

After playing with this stamp set I can honestly say that it will work with both my layouts and my cards...I've already used it on three different layouts, but I'll show you just one of them today :)

I really LOVE our wintery paper line called Wonderland...the colour combination is so versatile and of course it works beautifully with those snowy photos!

Don't you just love all these snowflake shapes? I've cut them using the snowflake images off of my Art Philosophy if you are late getting to the Cricut Party... let me tell you that Close To My Heart has partnered with Provo Craft's Cricut and are now creating stamp sets that work together with these cut shapes so that we can create some fabulous, quick and easy embellishments!

I have cut my snowflake and then I ran it through an embossing folder for some added texture and dimension...I originally had plans to stamp on these snowflakes but thought it might be distracting...I've tucked under two ticket shapes (also cut with the Cricut machine and the Art Philosophy cartridge) and simply stamped the January stamp in Petal ink and added the day in Lagoon so it would stand out a little better...that and coordinate with my twine!

I absolutely LOVE my new E-size stamp set Trinity Alphabet (E1021)! It is so perfect for titles and I've used it loads already but here it is stamped with more Petal ink...the little flag 'school' was stamped with the the Trinity Alphabet set too! WHY??? you ask, well because this awesome set comes with 3, yes count em, 3 different sizes of FULL alphabets!
