My Scrapbooking Blog - Part 3

August SOTM (For the Love of Crafting) Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August’s SOTM, which is For the Love of Crafting, a set of 9 stamps. If you have come here from Catherine Nowak’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 Close To My Heart Consultants are sharing their creations using this month’s SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. To follow along just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

My original plan was to photos of our yearly (bi-yearly) family scrapbook retreat on here. That was until I couldn’t find them. So…what I’m really doing is planning ahead since we have a retreat at the end of August, this will be for photos taken then and they can go right on the page!
I used a variety of different papers on this one which shows how well all of our papers coordinate: Central Park, Documented, and Enchantment Fundamentals. For accents, I used White & Gold Ribbon and Gold Glitter Gems.

Now “Hop” on over to Melissa Robinson’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 For the Love of Crafting stamp set is only available until August 31! Visit my website to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
