November Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop highlighting this month's stamp set, "Cherish the Day".

This stamp set allows for great versatility. With a stamp image for every month of the year and a place (see the small circle) to add in the day, what a nice new way to date those wonderful pages you make. Now come hop with us and see what creativity we have to share with you!

If one of our links doesn’t work, go to Melissa’s blog to find a list of the participants so you can get back in the loop.     

If you have arrived here from Neely’s Blog, you are on the right track! So... let's get started!

I used one of my pages that I had made from the Believe Workshop on the Go Kit. The green strip is for journaling after I pick out my pictures. I thought the top corner would be the perfect place for a tag with the Stamp of the Month December image. The tag was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. The base is cut on Colonial White with the edges inked in Holiday Red. The image is stamped on a tag cut from the Sweet Leaf cardstock included in the Kit and the edges are inked with New England Ivy.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. If you find this stamp is a must have for your collection, click on my link in the top right corner to shop anytime. The stamp set is $17.95 OR, if you place an order of $50 in other amazing products, the stamp is only $5.

Now hop on over to Michelle’s Blog where you will find another inspirational use of this stamp set!

work of art (curtesy of Close to My Heart)


I wish I could take credit for these beautiful pages but all I did was follow directions. That's how simple the workshop on the go kits are.  Simply cut the paper as directed, place the pieces on the base cardstock, add emblishments as desired and there you go.  It really can't get any easier to make pages that you can be so proud of.  This is probably my favorite paper pack in the current idea book.

Christmas is coming

It really won't be long now.  And in an effort to help everyone get into the holiday spirit, my workshop for November will be the Close to My Heart "Believe" paper pack.  Look at these amazing pages and cards that can be made with the coordinated paper pack

 These projects take advantage of the Art Philosophy Cricuit Cartridge which is use to cut the paper for the starts.  It is a perfect fit. 

The current date for this workshop will be Saturday, November 19th from 9:00 -11:00 am.  Please email before November 5th if you would like to reserve a spot.  If necessary, I will add a night class that same week.
