Welcome to this month's installment of the Stamp of the Month blog hop where approximately 60 CTMH consultants show off our artwork using April's stamp of the Month : You Are.
If you've arrived here from Elizabeth's blog- you are headed in the right direction and the next link in the loop is posted at the end of this one. If you are just joining the hop here- no problem... it should circle around to all of the blogs in the hop.
I had soooo much fun with this set.
First up is the stamps themselves and a reminder- Our Stamp of the Month sets are $17.95 but when you spend $50 or more you can purchase the set for only $5. Or you can hold off till April 17th and that $50 purchase will earn you this set for $5 AND the awesome National Scrapbooking Month special of 24 sheets of fabulously designed paper (2 each of 12 designs) for another $5!!! More on that special...including artwork... will be posted leading up to the 17th of April when the special begins.
ok... back to the stamp of the month:
Up next is my artwork. I was inspired by the artwork shown in our Spring/ Summer Idea Book and those of you with a copy will notice that the left side is similar. I've put my own spin on the colors and I totally guessed on their sizing. The second side is all mine. I wanted a 2 page layout for my daughter's soccer photos. Since I have dial up- I have to physically go to the store to have my photos printed and I ran out of time BUT... I know we already have a 5x7 verticle of her soccer photo, and a 5x7 horizontal of her team photo. I anticipate printing 2 3.5x 5 photos to go above the journaling/ purple rectangles on the left page. I will print several photos to line up on the grey piece on the right side.
Once I get the photos printed... I will re-post the completed layout.
On this first side- the vertical 5x7 will completely cover the non-stamped white... in between the grey borders.
I used my cricut to cut all of the stars- and one scalloped circle that was cut and used on both pages.
