“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

April Stamp of the month blog hop

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  The stamp set featured this month is D1455 Blessed.  This month we have over 50 wonderful consultants participating and showing off their creations!

If you have come from Sarita's Blog then you are on the right track!

This month I drew my inspiration from a color combination from an outfit that I love to wear.  The outfit consists of brown pants, a pink shirt and a cream colored sweater.  I felt that this combo was well suited for this months stamp set as well as the Bliss paper pack.  I created a 5 x 7 card and added some shimmer brads for some dimension.  Enjoy!

Products used (all CTMH):
Blessed stamp set
Chocolate, Hollyhock, Grey Wool Inks
Bamboo, Hollyhock, and Colonial White Cardstock
Bliss Level 2 paper packet
Shimmer Brads

Now "hop" on over to Haley's Blog and check out her beautiful artwork for this month!
