CTMH--Stamp of the Month - Year Round Cheer- December

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for December 2012 featuring Year Round Cheer

Year Round Cheer features 12 images to celebrate each month of the year! If you have come here from Susan's blog you are on the right path.

This is the final Stamp of the Month blog hop of the year...... Don't be too sad though, I'll be continuing on for 2013 :) 

Today I have used the last stamp of this set "Tis the Season" on one of my gift boxes!  I used Artiste to cut the gable gift box with Pear & Partridge papers, and added a stamped ornament to dress it up!  You can see the other images I used on the two other boxes as well!

This "Give Thanks" card was scraplifted from pinterest- isn't it awesome!  I used the It's Your Day set for the stamped chevron pattern and some of the colonial white rosette ribbon.  I added some liquid pearl on the pie for a whipped cream accent ;)  

The December Stamp of the Month is available the 1st-31st.  With any $50 purchase, this set is yours for $5.  Head over to my website to start shopping :

While you're there.... 
At 12:00 AM (MST) on December 1, new items will be added to the “While Supplies Last” section of my WEBSITE. Among the new additions you will find a wide variety of paper and coordinating accessories, all with a substantial markdown. You will also find that most of the items that are currently available will also see a further markdown at that time.

To sweeten the deal even more, from December 1–31, all orders placed on my website that reach or exceed $50 will also include a free Bonding Memories® glue pen (Z553)—a $4.50 value! So not only will you save $12.95 off the retail price of the YEAR ROUND CHEER Stamp of the Month, but you'll get a FREE Bonding Memories® glue pen

Chrismtas Decorations- CTMH

Are you one that changes your Christmas decor year after year???  Or do you have the same stuff you've had for years???  I'm somewhere in the middle!  I have some things that I've had for years and others that are new! 

I just spent the last 2 days decorating my house, inside and out, for Christmas.  I'd like to share a couple of my new creations for this year :)  AND a couple of old favorites :)

This is a canvas I made!  I printed some Christmas music on paper, then mod podged onto a canvas.  The ornament was cut with my neighbors Silhouette machine, in CTMH Ruby and Black.  Then I used the Silver Glitz Gel along the edges and top.  I then sponged some desert sand reinker along the edges of the canvas. 
(Unfortunately, this did not make it up in my house :(  It was for a silent auction, I donated it.)

Ho Ho Ho Blocks- This is part of the Block set.  I covered all 6 sides with the different Holidays- this was the Christmas one.  I used CTMH's Believe papers and Art Philosophy.

This is still my favorite Christmas decor piece I've made!  I used CTMH"s Banner and Art Philosophy.  You can read how I made it HERE!

And my paper trees from 2010 (yes they still look good!)  You can read how I made these HERE

I'll be back with more of my decor soon :)

CTMH- Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop- Dakota

Welcome to the Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop!  

We will be featuring artwork from the Dakota Paper Pack. 

If you have come here from Catherine's blog then you are on the right path.  Your next stop will be Stephanie's blog

The Dakota paper pack is one of our most "manly" paper packs in the Idea Book. It also has a western flair to it.  I think my favorite way to use it is in a patriotic theme! 

Today I have created a My Creations Star with the Dakota Paper Pack.  These stars are super awesome,  they come with one flat side and one dimensional side.  There's even a hole in the back for hanging it!  I think I'm addicted to making these stars....

To make this star, first I used a black sharpie marker and colored all the edges and creases.  Then I used the Star Pattern from CTMH (click here for pattern) and cut out my paper.  I used Bonding Memories glue to adhere the papers on.  Finally, I cut a out a rosette with Artiste in the red/grey houndstooth pattern and added a Silver Shimmer Brad to the center of the star!  These stars really come together very easily! 

Now hop on over to Stephanie's Blog for your next stop.

Here's a list of all our team members participating:
