CTMH's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for February

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for February. This month we are featuring the stamp set "Thoughtful Tidings".

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 Angel'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 stamp set, along with the many other great CTMH products you'll see in each post!

I have two creations for you today.
My first is a one-page layout using this month's stamp set and also featuring the new CTMH paper line called "Pemberley" (gorgeous floral patterns!).  The layout design is from one of the CTMH books of layout sketches - in particular this is the Reflections sketch called "Sidebar - Photo Accent".   
Materials Used:
CTMH Lucky Chipboard Assortment (retiring January 31st!)
CTMH Cork Alphabet
CTMH February 2012 Stamp of the Month - Thoughtful Tidings
CTMH paper Pemberley (available beginning February 1st!)
CTMH paper Hooligans (the skinny orange strip!)
CTMH cardstock: Pacifica, Desert Sand, Vanilla Cream
CTMH Inks: Pacifica & Sunset
Other: Foam Tape

And my second stamp of the month creation today is a 5"x7" card.  This card features the new CTMH paper line called "Cruisin'".  This line is just so fun and will be great for masculine cards & layouts.  I used the Card Positioning Systems sketch #136
Materials Used:
CTMH paper - Cruisin' (available beginning February 1st)
CTMH paper - Typeset
CTMH February 2012 Stamp of the Month - Thoughtful Tidings
CTMH Milepost Corrugated Shapes
CTMH ink: Black
CTMH cardstock: grey wool, twilight & black

The "Thoughtful Tidings" stamp set is available from your consultant between February 1st - 29th, 2012.  You can purchase it for $17.95 or get it for just $5 with your qualifying CTMH purchase of $50 or more during the month of February.
