August 2016 SOTM Blog Hop (Purr-fect Halloween)

August2016

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the August SOTM, which is Purr-fect Halloween, a set of 17 stamps.

If you have come here from Melissa Robinson’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.  To visit each blog for some great ideas just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go! 

Halloween Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Purr-fect Halloween Stamp Set (August 2016 SOTM), Fundamentals Enchantment Paper Packet, Cardstock (Whisper, Goldrush, Eggplant), Black Ink, ShinHan Markers (Warm Grey 4, Lavender, Marigold), Calypso Sequins, and Flower Market Cricut Collection.

I always try to do something different with the SOTM but this one was too cute to not use it for this Halloween layout.  I think the kitty has “princess” eyes. 🙂  For the title, I stamped “Have a purr-fect” (masking the word Halloween) and “Halloween” is a Cricut cut from the new Flower Market Cricut Collection.

Now “Hop” on over to Sheila Bennett’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Purr-fect Halloween Stamp Set is only available through the end of August!

This set is available on my website for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  Shop now!

Everything ABC Blog Hop (Letter P)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter P. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “P” element will be featured in their post.  If you came from Catherine Nowak then you’re on the right track or you can start here.10178117_10208292254205571_4929240357548789413_nFor the letter P, I chose Picture My Life cards.  I have discovered a new joy for this product.  Not only are they great to use for Pocket Scrapbooking, but they are a wonderful way to make some beautiful cards as you can see from these that I made today.
