March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop !  So grab a steamy cup of your favorite beverage and prepare to be inspired. . . .

We will be featuring March's SOTM, which is Choose Happy, a set of 14 stamps.  If you have come here from Nancy Womersley'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 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  Here we go!

 These cards are samples of baby shower invites for a friend having her second grand child.  Since my baby is about to leave for college and the closest family "baby" is 6 I used some nontraditional papers, stamp sets and colors as well as the traditional pink & blue.  I hope the mom to be and grandma love these options.

Now "Hop" on over to Dana Kessler's 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 A HAPPY HELLO SOTM is only available until the last day of the month!  Contact your CTMH Consultant  to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!

Think Pink

This card was created for my friend who plans on hosting a 10 for $10 class.  She wanted to start with something stunning and simple.  I think this pink card fits that motif perfectly and it fits the challenge this week at H2H Think Pink. This card uses the Brushed Paper Pack and the Budding Frienship stamp set.

The CTMH way

This card is for my oldest nephew's Birthday he is 20 and I can hardly believe where the time has gone!!!!  I decided that this was the perfect card to highlight the CTMH way.  The layout comes from the Make it from the Heart book.  The paper pack is Wanderful (one of my current favs)  the inks are Lagoon, Black and Chocolate.  How much more CTMH can a girl get?

TWINE & Studio J

One of the challenges for February is TWINE and I thought it would be neat to show you a studio J layout with twine.  This layout came together so quickly and I love the addition of twine.  the banner at the top is all set to be dragged into place. The twine stars are also ready to place anywhere.  They come in three sizes and also have an adjustable setting if you'd like to customize the size.

 This stamp set is an awesome way to share a blessing with those in need! CTMH donates $3 of the proceeds from this stamp set to Operation Smile.  If you have hopped here from
Priscilla Gotham's Blog you are on the right track. 

For this card I used the arrow image to make my own background paper.  The sentiment is stamped in Lagoon and the Cardstock is from the Hopscotch paper pack.
