Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for October. This month we are featuring the stamp set "HOLIDAY MAGIC".
Along this month's Stamp of the Month hop you'll find dozens of fabulous creations using this stamp set - all brought to you by a very talented group of CTMH Consultants! If you've come here from Fancy Melissa's Blog, you are on the right path. If this is your first stop on the hop, that will work too (just keep hopping till you get back here again).
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 this month's festive stamp set, along with the many other great CTMH products you'll see in each post!
My creation for this month's hop is a layout! I wanted to go a little out of the box with this stamp set - so I stayed away from a festive project. I decided to use one of the Christmas tree images in the set to make a pennant banner. Love how this turned out! I made the flower embellishments by cutting several circles, distressing the edges, spritzing them with water, scrunching them up, then unscrunching them & layering them. Cute & easy!
The design for this layout was inspired by Sassy Lil' Sketches September Week #2 Sketch.
