Welcome to Close to My Heart's monthly Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop! Woohoo!!! This time we have three groups of 20+ gals participating with dozens and dozens of great ideas to inspire you when you are using October's Stamp of the Month, "HolidayWarmth". If you came here from the amazing Nona's blog, welcome!
First is my Rudolph Christmas List Notebook. As you know, I just love our Heartfelt Die-Cuts, and the new collection includes this precious little reindeer! Cute, cute, cute! I used the Jingle paper and Stickease (for the little ornament), a Cranberry Tiny Brad for his nose, some White Ricrac and Juniper Waxy Flax. I used White Daisy Ink to random stamp one of the cute snowflakes from the Stamp of the Month. Then, I used a branch punch to make Rudolph some cute little Juniper antlers! Now to fill it up with gift ideas for my friends and family!
Next up is a super inexpensive little Holiday Recipe Box! Now, don't you have a collection of family recipes that you pull out just for the holidays? Green bean casserole....sweet potato casserole (good grief....lots of casseroles!) Gingerbread....Granny's peanut butter fudge...you have your own to add to the list. Well, I found this little recipe box in Michael's $1 bin (gotta love that!). I used CTMH's Everlasting Creative Basics Paper, Cranberry Ribbon and a sentiment from the Stamp of the Month stamped with Ponderosa Pine ink. Now, I actually just inked up part of the sentiment. I could have cut it apart, but I was too lazy. HA!
Oh! The doilies. Good grief. I bought these little guys in the cake decorating dept. for the card that I posted last Thursday (remember the little skirt?). So now it appears that I will be using a little paper doily or two each week until they are gone. HA!
Now, I'm sure you've seen the cute images that accompany these sentiments as you've hopped along the blog hop - a festive Christmas tree, a big ol' pile of gifts and more! Want to own this Stamp of the Month yourself? Ask your consultant how, or e-mail me for details!
Now, hop on over to my friend Terrie's blog for some more ideas on using "Treasures"!
Thanks for stopping by!
See you tomorrow,
