May 2016 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

This Stamp of the Month 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 33 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. Wow!!!  
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.

If you love birthday,weddings,anniversaries,then you will love this wonder Cake stamps set.








I used it on a card. For the background I used one of our Close To My Heart embossing folders, inked it up and out it through my embossing machine. It gives it a "vintage-distress" look.





If you want to see exactly how this technique is done  watch this video.

 I love the Penelope Workshops Your Way as to me it screams "Spring"! I took these pictures of my Grand daughter and youngest daughter who is her Aunt ,yesterday in the park and printed them this morning on my Canon Selphy.







 This is the workshop I used. Did you know that each workshop comes with a downloadable,coloured printed cutting guide with detailed directions? I changed mine up a little with picture sizing and added a few Non-Close To My Heart products. It came together in no time and I used up almost all of the product that came with the kit.

 This was one of three workshops I offered this past February. It's not too late to purchase your workshop.  Contact me or go to my website and order. But hurry as they will be gone April 30th !



I had done the workshop a month ago(without pictures) and was waiting to take some pictures of my Grand daughter wearing a pretty spring dress. Not to be. Instead we took a walk yesterday to the park and I snapped some pictures of her playing with her Auntie Bri. It was the first day in a long time that we were able to get out and enjoy the sun. We all had fun and enjoyed the walk down and the sunny rays of spring.
