CTMH August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring the August SOTM, which is "It's Your Day", a set of 26 stamps. If you have come here from Kristie's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!


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!

My first project is a super cute box card. The template is from Deb Duz Scrappin and I got my inspiration from Deneen at A Path of Paper.

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
