August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for August!

All artwork on the hop will feature Augusts's SOTM, "It's Your Day" a set of 26 stamps! If you have come here from Haley's blog you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning.

This month we have 64 CTMH Consultants sharing their SOTM creations, and other great CTMH artwork. Joining the hop is fun and simple to do - just click the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one! If you get lost or a link doesn't work just click on links in the list below... Here we go!






I made this interactive gift card holder for my August Card Class. I was given the template at a CTMH unit meeting, and it is the cutest thing ever! The cupcake top folds up and slides out a gift card! Besides featuring the August SOTM, I used the Animal Cookies paper pack, Dimensional Elements Bookplates, white ricrac ribbon, and red glitter. I also used Tulip and Olive stamp pads, and the "Happy Birthday" stamp set. The card measures approximately 4.25"x5.5"at it's widest/tallest points.

Remember, the August SOTM is only available until August 30th, so contact your CTMH Consultant (or Me!) to order this stamp set, or get it at a discount with qualifying orders, or for FREE with a $100 order! Also from Aug 3-17th only, get a free paper pack with every $100 order! No need to even pay shipping or tax on your free stamp of the month or free paper! What a great deal! Click here to go shopping now!

Thanks for stopping by! Now "hop" on over to Michelle's blog to check out her creations and continue the hop.
