CTMH-- May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for May 2012, featuring Friendship Bouquet!

All artwork on the hop will feature Friendship Bouquet!  This is a set of 8 stamps, featuring BEAUTIFUL flowers!  It is a must have :)  If you have come here from Angela's Blog you are on the right path.


This month we have  over 50 CTMH Consultants sharing their SOTM creations, and other great CTMH artwork. Hopping along is fun and simple to do - just click the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one!  Be sure to leave some love (comments) along the way :)

I'm soooo excited to be back in this blog hop with you all again!  I took a couple months off to recharge, I guess, but now I'm back and ready to share my creation :) 

Today I'm sharing a card that we will be creating in my Dotty For You  card class as a part of my National Scrapbooking day classes!  You can see some of my other cards HERE and all the layouts HERE!

This card is a tri-fold card, and my ladies LOVE this card design!  I used the Lagoon, Sweet Leaf and Grey wool color scheme on this one.  I stamped the flower in Grey wool and then used my water brush with both Sweet Leaf and Lagoon to color the flower in.  I used Pearl Opaques in different sizes for the center of the flower.  I added some Lagoon Paradise Twine as well.  

This Stamp Of The Month set:  Friendship Bouquet, can be yours two ways:
Purchase it for $17.95 OR
Spend $50 and get it for only $5

Make sure you get this fabulous set before 5-31-12!

Be sure to pick up your Dotty For You Paper pack before the end of the month as well.  Spend $35 and get it for only $5.  Spend $10 more and pick up the Stamp of the Month for only $5 too! 

I just know you are going to see some amazing, and very versatile projects along this hop!!!! Now hop on over to SHEILA'S Blog  to see what she has created for you!

5 years ago, on April 24, 2007, I made the best decision of my life- I joined CTMH.  I had been buying product for a few months and figured I was buying enough to just be a consultant.  I also love to teach and thought I could do a card class here or there.  I started slowly, but made my Straight To The Top levels to earn extra product credit :)

After a while, things really started to click for me.  I was doing classes every month, holding multiple hostess clubs (online and in person) and started recruiting!  After 5 years, I have grown an amazing team of almost 100 ladies :)  How cool is that!

The best part is that I'm doing what I LOOOVE and making real money doing it!  The financial part has brought some great freedoms to my family as well!  I've traveled to Washington DC, Disneyland and this year to Dallas for CTMH conventions.  I took my family with my to Disneyland for 3 days, took my husband to Las Vegas for our anniversary- all paid for with my CTMH earnings.  My kids are participating in multiple sports and recreational activities thanks to CTMH as well!

But really, I would not be here celebrating my 5th Anniversary with this amazing company without any of YOU!  My blog readers, my customers, my friends..... THANK YOU!!!!!

CTMH---- Patriotic Flower Wreath

When the Art Philosophy bundle first came out, I saw a few consultants making flower wreaths.  I loved them of course but though, boy that's A LOT of work....

A couple of my team members have recently been making them too.... and then one of them mentioned that she was going to do a patriotic one.  I thought- YES!  That's exactly what I'm going to do too! 

I got to work cutting flowers from my Art Philosophy cartridge.  I cut over 160 flowers at 2", 2 1/2" and 3" to fill this 10" wreath. 

I'm going to be making some more too :)  Turns out rolling flowers can be done just about anywhere.... on a break at work, while watching TV, while sitting at Allie's dance class...

YOU should try making one yourself!  I'd love to see it if you do :)
