Sharing Great Swap Results: October Stamp of the Month "Holiday Warmth" paired with Jingle

Once again, I am so pleased with the beautiful artwork from my fellow Close to My Heart consultants who take part in Jen Rubio's Stamp of the Month swap. This time around we created art with the October SOTM Holiday Warmth and paired it with CTMH's Jingle paper packet.

I bet you will love the results as much as I do:

Let me know if I can help you get this fun stamp set for yourself this month, at a discount or even FREE!

Thanks for stopping by!

Minneapolis Regionals Celebration Wahoo!

Due to flash difficulties, the photos I took during my trip are quite dark. So, while I continue to hope that my DD will be able to help enhance the rest of my photos, I couldn't resist sharing this one very special picture with you.

I had the great privilege of meeting Close to My Heart's founder and CEO, Jeanette Lynton, at the latest (and greatest) Regional Celebration. And, I have the picture to prove it! LOL

What an inspiring woman she is! I was so impressed and amazed by how geniune, kind, and smart she is.

It was such an exciting event! We had the opportunity to get our hands on a brand new, exclusive product that will debut in the Spring 2009 Idea Book. And, we were blessed with having dear Jeanette teach the creative class for this new item! I couldn't have been more geeked (except for when I had my picture taken with her)!!!

If you head to Jeanette's blog you can see a few more photos from the event.

October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring October's Stamp of the Month, which is "Holiday Warmth," a set of 11 stamps.

If you have come here from Sarita's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Debra's Blog and start from the beginning.

This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs.

We are trying a new format with three smaller Blog Hop groups posting today. Once you finish with this group's Blog Hop, you are welcome to visit the other two Blog Hop groups. I am posting as a member of the Group 2 consultants. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Our Blog Hop organizer, Jena, will have the three Blog Hop group lists on her blog as well. Here we go!

For my card creation, I used the cardmaker's how-to recipe book, "Originals" cardmaking how-to program and followed the pattern called, Upper Level Focus. The how-to programs from Close to My Heart are such great time-savers for me. The programs really do make my projects come together: "Faster. Simpler. Easier."

Project Supplies:
Stamp: D1376 Holiday Warmth, October Stamp of the Month
Paper: Jingle Level 2 paper packet
Cardstock: Tulip, Juniper, and White Daisy
Inks: Tulip , Juniper, and Creme Brulee
Embellishments: Cranberry Designer Ribbon Rounds and Twinkle Brads Jolly Assortment
Tools: "Originals" how-to book, Micro-Tip Scissors, Edge Distresser, and 3-D Foam Tape

This would make a great, simple Christmas card for everyone on your mailing list. It's bold and fun!

Remember, the October stamp of the month is only available until October 31st! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free! You can also review the flyer below to see the stamps included in this cute set:

When visiting my website: you can also find great Close to My Heart scrapbooking and stamping supplies anytime you want, 24/7.
