CTMH May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for May - featuring the stamp set "Cherish the Moment"!  Along the hop you'll find dozens of fabulous creations using this stamp set - all brought to you by a very talented group of CTMH Consultants!

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 "Cherish the Moment" stamp set, as well as the many other great CTMH products you'll see in each post.

My creation today is a 12x12 wedding layout.  This stamp set has many obvious uses for cards - but the more I play with it - I'm also really excited about what a great set it is for journalling on your scrapbook layouts!

This layout features lots of distressing - both scissor distressing, as well as ink distressing.  I used the CTMH Corner Rounder to create the scalloped border.  And I used one of my favourite tools - the CTMH Soft Set Eyelet tool to set the eyelets that the ribbon is strung through on the top of the layout.   I also highlighted the journalling tag from "Cherish the Moment" by double matting it with cardstock, and then popping it off the page with foam tape.  The layout design is "Main Frame - Backdrop" from the CTMH How-to Program Book, Reflections.

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
Cherish the Moment - May 2010 Stamp of the Month
Building Block Alphabet Acrylic Stamp Set
Twilight Bitty Brads from the Winter Cozy Brad Assortment
Cardstock: Twilight, Colonial White
Ink: Cocoa
