CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for March

Glad you could join us for this month's Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We have dozens of talented consulants who are sharing their creations with the March Stamp of the Month set "A Little Everything", a set of 26 acrylic stamps.

To continue along the hop, just follow the link at the end of each post to go to the next site. We hope that following the hop will give you lots of inspiration and ideas for using your "A Little Everything" stamp set, as well as the many other great CTMH products you'll see in each post.

My creation today is a 12 x12 layout.  This stamp set is a definite MUST HAVE for any cardmaker, but I also wanted to show the versatility of this set by using it on a scrapbook page.  The title, as well as the scalloped border on my layout are both stamps from this set.   I added a little extra dimension to the title by rolling the edges of the stamp in a darker ink prior to stamping the image.

The clean and simple style of this layout (look at all that white space!!) is inspired by the great Cathy Zielske . . . I love her work.  The layout design is sketch #92 from Creative Scrappers.
