October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our OCTOBER Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! WOW, this year sure is flying by!  We will be featuring October's Stamp of the Month, which is "Share the Magic" (D1443), a set of 12 jolly stamps.

If you have come here from Terrie Dodd's Blog you are on the right track!!  Wasn't Terrie's creation GREAT!?!
This month we have many, many 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. You will be sure to enjoy yourself hopping along!  Grab a cup of your favorite beverage, take that "me time" that we all know is long over due, and enjoy the journey!!  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! Here we go!
This month, I chose to use the "Share the Magic" My Acrylix Stamp Set to complete the last page of the Summer Stamp Camp classes I hold at My Creative Clubhouse with kids ages 8-12 and 13-18!  This is a 9" x 9" page, and I used a pattern from the Reflections "How To" Program! What fun I had using this adorable stamp set! It was so hard to choose what image I was going to use... 

I ask you, WHO will be able to resist this adorable stamp set?  I see GREAT sales this month because everyone is sure to want to get this set for FREE!

And now for MY creation......drum roll please......(can you tell I'm in a GREAT mood while I am creating this post)  :)

Now, hop on over and take a look at Mary Eisen's Blog to see what she has created.  THIS lady has all sorts of tricks up her sleeve, and they are usually pretty amazing.  To see the items used in creating my page above, continue to read on.

TIPS:  I used the Glitz Stardust Glitter Glue on the furry areas of Santa's outfit, and the snowflake patters on the strips of paper at the top of the page.  The Liquid Applique was used for Santa's beard & moustache!  Remember when using Liquid Applique not to over heat it if you are using a heat gun for more "puff" or it will turn it brown!!  Just want a little "puff"? Allow it to air dry instead of using heat! Now have fun creating your own amazing order your items, visit my website HERE.
