March Stamp of the Month: Choose Happy

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

If you have come here from Lela's blog, you are on the right path! If you happen to get lost along the way you can find the complete list of hoppers here. We have around 50 consultant's participating this month.

These sets are the hardest for me to work with.  Obviously I should make frames and put in pictures or frame out a subject in a photo, but I never like where it takes me. 

I've been admiring white space layouts, well that's what I call them, so I attempted making one with this set.  I hope you enjoy my project. 

This is my youngest daughter and she had just returned from an interview for a Government Service job and we believe she has it in the bag.  So positive thoughts and we Choose Happy


I only used Close to My Heart products and they're listed below.

Exclusive Cardstock: White daisy, Lagoon, Flaxen, Sorbet, & Crystal Blue
Exclusive Ink: Black
B&T paper: Chalk it Up
Embellishments: White Stars, Gold Sequins, and Gold Bling Gems
My Acrylix Stamp sets: Choose Happy & Handwritten Alphabet


Our March stamp set is Choose Happy
A set of 14 images which include frames, borders, and sayings.

The March SOTM is available for ordering through the 31st at the regular price of $17.95 or $5 with a $50 order! 

 To get your set visit my shopping site.

Now hop on over to Cat's blog to see what she has created. 
 Thank You for stopping by today. :)

I must apologize for not getting the winner of the candy posted.  I've been unwell as some of you know I have a chronic condition. I've added washi tape, and a stamp set to the candy. 

I know I originally posted the 25th, but I've past that date and will allow comments until the 28th.  I will also be adding a mystery item, which may be embellishments pack, cardstock, ink, or perhaps a piece of all the current Close to My Heart  B&T/Patterned paper from the Annual and Seasonal 1 idea books. 

Thank You

My Love Affair with Paper: Use Your Stash Blog Hop

Welcome to the Use Your Stash Blog Hop!

We are a group of crafter's that want to use up all those pieces of B&T/Patterned paper, cardstock, embellishments, and ribbon that we all have lurking in our craft rooms.  We would love to have you join us!  We currently connect with each other via a Facebook Group and if  you'd like to use up your stash please come see what we have going on.

If you have arrived here from Casandra's blog your on the right path.  Be assured you'll see all the creations, since the hop is just a big circle.

The challenge this month is to address something I believe all papercrafter's will connect with.  The challenge is to use some of that paper you keep putting off cutting for one reason or another.  I have several packs... 

My love Affair with Paper

...decisions, decisions.  This is the project I decided to make with the paper that I've been keeping for awhile.  I think it works really well with the photos.  I know that the paper is 2 or maybe 3 seasons ago.  I  still haven't gotten my craft room finished.  Maybe next year.  

The majority of my stash of consumable product is Close to My Heart.  Now I have a ton of tools...I admit that I'm a tool junkie if it looks like it will be fun or make crafting a little easier I buy it. LOL

Now it's time for you to travel on-wards to Darlene's blog.
  Thank You for viewing our artwork.
