Another Awesome Rose Blossom Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 1st of the month's Rose Blossom Blog Hop. This is one big circle of gals on the RB Team who love to papercraft. If you have come from Morgan's Tweet SCRAPS Blog  I'm sure you have seen some amazing artwork and talent.

This time we are all featuring our creations with this darling June Stamp of the Month.

Each month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set, available for one month only, for just $5 — that’s over 70% off retail! When you place an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products (excluding purchases made in Studio J®), you qualify for this special Stamp of the Month pricing.
This stamp set is perfect for many things...birthday invites, place cards for a backyard BBQ party, cards, and in my world...a little mini album using The Kraft 3-Ring Album . This little album is only $5.95 and can hold many, many pages of your important events, recipes, favorite pictures or anything you decide.
The pages are all cut from the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge and hold several of my favorite pictures of our children and their children. They are all  precious SCOOPS of Ice Cream that fill our lives with happiness.


With Grandchild #10 on the way, there will be more pages added in the future.

Here are a few close up shots. 


The Stamp of the Month can be used with many other stamp sets which is what I did with this Mini.
Other supplies used are all Close To My Heart:
Kraft 3-Ring Album
Whimsey Fundamental Paper Pack
