CTMH Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop: Happy Place

posted in: Layouts | 11

Welcome to another Stamp-of-the-Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!  If you’ve come from Jen’s blog, you’re on the right track.  Just starting here?  Keep hopping by clicking the links in each post until you get back here.  I hope you’re settled in with a hot cup of your favourite beverage (hot, because it’s freezing here!), because there are lots of bloggers participating this month and lots of wonderful artwork to see.  Here is what this month’s stamp set looks like:

Can you see the possibilities with this one?  I wasn’t entirely sure how to use it at first.  But the one sentiment, “Like Mother, Like Daughter” trigged a great story for me.  I had one photo to use and went to Sketch ‘n’ Scrap for inspiration.  Sketch #51 was perfect, so I’m linking this project up there, for my very first time!  Here’s what I created:
I love how this layout turned out!  It talks about how my daughter Arianna crafted with me one Sunday afternoon and how pleased I am that she’s inherited my crafting gene.  I printed the photo on cardstock so I could stamp the sentiment directly on that white space on the photo.

I hand-drew those two hearts around it, just for fun.  Here are some more close ups of the details.  I used the leftover sequins from the Lollydoodle Card WOTG to embellish.  I thought they fit the colours well, and I happened to be working on that kit at the time the photo was taken.  Perfect!

The Lagoon patterned paper is from the retired Footloose kit.  I did all the colouring with our alcohol marker sets, after stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Now, you can hop on over to Mary’s blog and check out what she’s created with this set.

    Great page, gives me ideas how to create a page for my youngest, seeing as she had to be creative using this stamp set too.
