Blog Hop: August SOTM

Welcome to our August CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Each month we will showcase the Stamp of the Month which can be purchased exclusively through CTMH.
 We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects.
 This month we will be showcasing the August Stamp of the Month "Baroque Borders" . This stamp can be used in so many different ways and we hope to inspire you with our creations!

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog -

My project is a birthday card using all Close To My Heart products. 

I randomed stamped on the right side of the card with the big corner border stamp and used the fan looking image to do a border just above where the new Burlap Ribbon was placed.  The paper pack used is the new Clementine that correspond with the Durable Studs.  Colors used are Saddle, Outdoor Denim, and Desert Sand.  To make the pennant with my sentiment I used the canvas shapes that correspond with the Cricut Art Philosohpy Cartridge. 

The next stop on your blog hop fun is Joanne's Blog

Another Pinterest Inspiration

Awhile back I found this sweet bookshelf/hammock for books in a kids room. 

Melanie's office nursery

I found it through pinterest but posted by Penny Carnival  

Recently, my 2 year old son upgraded to his big brother's bottom bunk and we made room after taking out the toddler bed.  With the empty wall, I made this 46.5" long fabric double, bookshelf. 

I nailed in the back of the fabric in wall, then used heavy duty hooks screwed into the wall for the different levels for the 2 dowels.  It looks great and we were able to get rid of a box that held all those books. 

We put the shelf pretty low to the floor too, so that our youngest can reach his story books!

Thanks Pinterest!

New Artwork!

Featuring new products from the Autumn/Winter Close To My Heart Idea Book! 

The new My Creations Bracket Frame!  It measures 11" outside with a 7" window and 1" depth.

I've used the new, beautiful Avonlea paper pack and the Canvas Complements that match perfectly!

The stamp set used is so adorable!  Its called none other than Family Tree and has 5 stamps; 2 frame shapes that coordinate with the Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy, 2 sentiments, and the Big tree!  I made an extra tag...just incase :)

The bottom border behind the tree is one of the new Velvet rub ons, Parlor in a beautiful grey shade.  

These tags I made by cutting up one of the zip-strips from the top of the sheet of B&T in the pack.  The sayings are perfect to use by themselves or as a full strip.  I made them hard by coating them in embossing powder, over and over to make them thick. 

All these products are now available at my online Store so get yours today!  With every $30 order, I will send you a NEW IDEA BOOK FREE!  

Thanks for stopping by!
