January Stamp of the Month

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!! Welcome to the 1st  Stamp of the Month Blog Hop of 2015!  


We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is this Moment, a set of 12 stamps.  If you have come here from Peachy Iris G. Lamb'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. 

This month we have over 60 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 chose to make a grateful jar.  My sister posted something like this on FB and this is my take on it.  Starting Jan 1st write good things that happen on little pieces of paper.  Some of the suggestions where suprise gifts, accomplished goals, lol moments, natures beauty, memories worth saving, and daily blessings.  Then on Dec31st 2015 read all the amazing things that happened!!!  I obviously intend to use scrap B&T paper!!!  Below is a pic of the wrapper before it went on the jar so you can see ALL the awesome sentiments.
 For this project I used a jar that I had laying around.  I also used the this moment stamp set featured on pg 17 of the Annual inspirations and the Hopscotch B&T on pg 19 of the Seasonal Expressions mini catalog.  Finally I used flaxen, glacier, smoothie, and sunset inks and lagoon shimmer trim to finish the edges on the jar. 

Now "Hop" on over to Teresa Scrivens' 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 Jan SOTM is only available until the last day of the month!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
