Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring May’s SOTM, which is Live, Laugh, Love, a set of 9 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.

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!

Products used are all Close to My Heart: Live, Laugh, Love stamp set (May SOTM), Live Beautifully Paper Packet (May exclusive), Black Memento Ink, Sea Glass Glitter Paper, and White & Gold Ribbon.  I used the Thin Cut Hearts not realizing that they were retiring.  You can easily use the Thin Cut – Basic Hearts instead.

I used this stamp to create my own cards for a pocket scrapbook page.  You can also use these same designs to create greeting cards as well.

Now “Hop” on over to Cat Nowak‘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 Live, Laugh, Love Stamp Set is only available until May 31, 2017! Visit my website to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
