 This stamp set is sooooo cute ! Coupled with the fact that I am a cupcake addict! I love to eat them,bake,decorate and use them in my paper crafting projects. I had decided to use this set on a layout for my Grand daughter's album. I finished doing many of her first year pictures and putting them in an album. I wanted to start off her second year with her 1 year birthday pictures. It was the first time she had ever eaten any sugar and you can tell by the pictures she absolutely loved the experience. She got it all over her outfit and then needed a bath. I have pictures if that experience for another layout.

Scrapbook Crop Artwork

Had a great time at a crop my good friend Veronica Reis hosted this past weekend. The monies raised went for Princess Margaret hospital -Breast Cancer research. Her crop is called "Crop for the Cure".

There were many croppers there and every spot taken but we had lots of table space for cropping!
I sat with a table full of friends and croppers and had a blast ! The food was amazing. Hot lunch with Portuguese chicken and Parisian potatoes and wonderful salad. The dinner was a choice of Veal parmesan or Chicken with a white wine sauce with mushrooms and roasted potatoes,grilled veggies and another lovely salad. Coffee was strong, just like I like it and dessert was a lovely light  lemon filled creme cake! MMMMMMM.

I donated a few prizes and won some beautiful jewelry!

November 2014 Stamp of the month blog hop



Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring  November's SOTM, which is comprised of a set of 15 stamps.  If you have come here from  the wonderful work on Kathy Burrow's Blog, you are on the right path!

 The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog

This month we have 64 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!

I love flower stamps but in November I really had to look around for inspiration as it's getting cold enough to snow outside my home.

Anyhow I decided that these flowers would make great embellishments on the some party crackers I am making for my daughter's 25th birthday dinner in December. I saw the party cracker done with these stamps on page 15 of the  Close to My Heart Annual Inspiration book and used this as my inspiration. I am always doing things at the last minute for her December birthday but not this year!  I used the Artiste cartridge-Page 68 and cut it at 11"( Not real dial size). Filled it with some goodies and real money( for her). Now only 10 more to make!



 Then I was on a roll so I went on to do a few cards.
I used Yuletide Carol patterned paper for this next card( yes Christmas paper that can be used all year round!) I used Close to My Heart dessert Sand  ink for the flowers,black ink for the sentiment.



Finally for the last card,I continued with using the same ink colours( dessert sand,black,ruby,flaxen) added some gold glitter tape and pop dotted the flowers. I really love how versatile this stamp set is.



Here are the materials I used:











Remember,the SOTM is only available until November 30th!
