Welcome to the CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!- Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

WOOOHOO!!! It's HERE! The first Stamp of the Month Blog Hop hosted by 18 Close To My Heart Consultants.

Today we are featuring the May Stamp of the Month, "Be Yourself". This set of 14 girly-girl stamps can be yours free with a qualifying purchase, or you can buy it during the month of May from your CTMH consultant. And because this is my very first blog hop, I'm offering free blog candy! Keep reading.....details below!

If you have come here from Ronnie's blog, you are on the right path! If my blog is your first stop, you might want to go back to Jena's blog and start from the beginning! You'll come back to my post after you visit Ronnie's.

This month we have 18 Close To My Heart consultants sharing their creations using "Be Yourself" and other cool CTMH products. This is so esy to do - just click on the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one. Here we go!!!

This little lady is ready to fly away! I used a lot of different products on this card. Wait - we sell Lilac Mist crochet flowers? No, we sell White Daisy crochet flowers - I inked it with a sponge dauber! Cool, right? CTMH products are so adaptable!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Be Yourself (May SOTM)
Paper: Life Delights Paper Pack
Inks: Hollyhock, Lilac Mist
Accessories: Colonial White RicRac, White Mini-Medleys, Winter Craft Buttons (Blush and Sweet Leaf), Heartfelt(TM) Whimsy Diecuts (the felt button and dragonfly)
Here's a card that we're going to make at my Open House and Open Crop on May 16, using "Be Yourself" and the Emporium Creative Basics Collection. I used the stamp set from the "Tickled Pink" National Scrapbooking Month special to random-stamp the cardstock, creating my own background paper.
And now for the candy! In honor of my first blog hop, I'd like to offer up some White and Sparkly Close To My Heart products! This collection includes 24 stamps in the versatile My Acrylix(R) set "With Love". Also some White Daisy Mini-Medleys (crochet flower, metal ribbon slides, metal flower brads and metal oval tags), mini sparkles, White Daisy organdy ribbon round and White Daisy Bigger Brads.
Simply leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a random number on Wednesday evening (May 13) at 9:00 p.m. EST. Make sure you leave your e-mail address so I'll be able to contact you when you are the winner!
Now "hop" on over to Terri's blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the consultants' blogs to get some great ideas! Remember the May SOTM is available through May 31! Contact your CTMH consultant or shop my website - get this stamp set at a discount, or even free!!!
Thanks for hopping by - and Happy Mother's Day!!!

Super cards--the winged one got me flyin' to my scrap room! And inking the crocheted embellies is such a good idea, thanks!

I love the cards! I was wondering if I could dye the white flowers and you confirmed it. Thanks for thinking outside of the box!

Love seeing how you used the stamp set from the Tickled Pink collection to make a background. You did a fantastic job cutting out the silhouette on the first card - love the look.

Hey my name is Nicole and I am in Misty's club and I just wanted to say that I totally thought your 1st card with what made the girl look like she had wings (kind of fairy!) was totally cute! It added such a cool twist on the card! :)

Denise said...
