September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is Limited Edition, a set of 21 stamps.

If you have come here from Lori's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. 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!

I used my stamp set along with the new My Creations Memory Game to create a calendar so that I can keep track of the birthdays and anniversaries that happen throughout the months.  This stamp set has a couple of stamps that go along with the new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  I cut the tag on the top of the box with the Cricut cartridge and then stamped on the cut tag.  I also tried my first flower from the cartridge!

The Memory Game comes with 24 cards so I used two cards for each month (only one of each is shown here).  For the cards, I cut a rectangle with the Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped the cut image.  I stamped a month on each of the cards (I plan to add names/dates for birthdays and anniversaries during the month).  On the back of the cards, I added a magnet so that I can hang the current month on my refrigerator (or any other magnetic surface) and I will have a reminder of who I need to send cards to!

Here's a closer view of a few of the cards:
