Welcome to the July 1st Blog Hop - the place to be to see some fun creativity! If you have hopped over from Cathy's Blog These Eager Hands you have seen some beautiful work. This is a great big circle of Rose Blossoms sharing their passion for Close to My Heart.
This Hop showcases the adorable July Stamp of The Month Life is Wonderful and here is the WONDERFUL deal....
During the month of July, when you purchase $25 in current, retail priced stamps, you qualify to receive either the July Stamp of the Month, Life Is Wonderful, FREE or any one of the Hostess Rewards stamp sets featured in Annual Inspirations 2014–2015 or Seasonal Expressions 2 for only $5! That is a savings of up to $17.95 USD / $19.75 CAD! The July Stamp of the Month is a lovely, versatile stamp set that is a great match for your cards and layouts that celebrate all the wonderful things—big and small—that life has to offer.
If you have followed along with other Rose Blossom Hops, you will notice that my heart leans a lot towards layouts. In my world, it is so important to preserve your memories on paper and have them for many years to come. This is what I envisioned when I saw this awesome stamp set:
It was so fun to create this 2 page layout. The sentiment on this stamp set will be a great fit for so many layouts or cards. It tells it's own story and I love that about this set. I paired the SOTM with the stamp set Wavy Blooms. Coloring with our ShinHan Markers really added some pop to the flowers. The Archival Black Ink on the white cardstock worked well and also the White Ink on black cardstock gave it a chalkboard look.
My husband and I just celebrated our 36th Year of Marriage this June. We have made some pretty awesome memories over the years and I'm so blessed with our lives together. Family means so very much to me and Close To My Heart makes it so easy to preserve our Family memories.
Close To My Heart is always 'spot on" with all the Latest & Greatest in Paper Crafting. Top of the Line products and accessories at reasonable prices. Can't get any better than that.
