Hey there, I am back today with another project using the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month. I have touted the wonders of this stamp set for nearly three weeks now, and I am not going to stop just yet! Not only is this stamp set "the BOMB" for making your Christmas cards, just look at this fun Christmas layout!!
As I have mentioned previously, the stamp set coordinates with the ARTISTE cartridge. Many, many of you already own Artiste as it was released a few years back, Every Cricut cut on my layout came from the Artiste cartridge, including the ornaments, the blows, and the snowflakes.
This layout is a nice example of incorporating stamping into your scrapbooking. I stamped the red striped ornaments, the greenery in the upper corners of the pages, and the word Believe across the bottom of both pages. Simple and easy stamping that has a big impact on the overall layout.
Originally I planned for three photos across on the right hand page. But I had already cut the little banner piece and the HO HO HO (both from Artiste) and forgot to use them. So... I added a piece as a flip up element! Not only can I add another photo to the right page, I can also add my journaling on the back side of the HO HO HO banner!
The papers used on this layout are also available in my CTMH on-line store. The prints come from our new White Pines paper pack. The reds, greens, and whites are all CTMH solid card stock.
The October Stamp of the Month is a limited edition stamp set, available on through October 31. It retails for $17.95 as a stand alone set, or with a $50.00 CTMH order you can add the Stamp of the Month to your cart during checkout for only $5.00!!
