It’s the beginning of a new month and time for a new blog hop! If you came here from Laurie’s blog, you’re on the right track. This month’s hop has over 60 CTMH consultants participating. If you’re new to the blog hop, it’s very simple. Once you’ve looked here, just click on the link for the next blog at the end of this post and hop from blog to blog. The stamp set we’re highlighting today is called Around the Block. It’s full of super cute images that you can use to create houses with sweet windows, doors, shutters, and even window boxes.
Here is my project. Click on the photo for a better view.
I decided to make a layout instead of a card this time. I’ve tried some new techniques on this page, at least they’re new to me. I machine-stitched for the first time on the striped paper and photo mat. I had no idea it would be so easy! I’m already looking for a permanent place for my sewing machine in my craft area. I also used our new soft-set eyelet tool and eyelets. It was quick and quiet and easier than my Crop-a-dile. All the stamped images, including the sentiments are from Around the Block. The paper is from Magic Moments, Level 2.
Here is the photo I’m putting on it, once I get it printed.
