October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Scandanavian Wishes

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring Scandanavian Wishes. If you've come from the talented (and hilarious) Brae Montgomery's blog, you're on the right path!

This set of 12 stamps reminds me of my sons' favorite books by Jan Brett, Gingerbread Baby and Gingerbread Friends. While I used the set to make a simple Christmas card, I can see myself making tags attached to freshly baked gingerbread cookies this December! Mmmmmmmmm!

With Close To My Heart's new Stitch Guide and Foam Mat, adding the rows of stitching has never been easier.  Now, head on over to see what fabulous creations Sheila Bennett has for you!

Laughing Lola

Laughing Lola is a fun, bold and inspiring paper pack from Close To My Heart. That snakeskin print is just my favorite, love it!!!

I did a Workshop On the Go class Monday night this week with some of my favorite gals and we definitely did lots of laughing while putting together the layouts below!

Make It From Your Heart, Volume 2, Pattern 15.

ProPlayer Scrapbooking

Two active boys means lots of red, blue and black colors zipping around my house. I'd love to scrapbook pink, frilly things, but that's just not my life, and I'm pretty lucky so I'll deal!

ProPlayer is Close To My Heart's answer to my needs for boy paper. While these photos don't do the paper justice (my good camera's in the shop!), you can see how boy oriented, gamer, and fun these patterned papers are!

The first two layouts are part of the ProPlayer Workshop on the Go. The third layout is one I put together using the Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 pattern book inspired by Jeanette Lynton. I used Pattern 02. I just love CTMH's "How To" series of layouts and card patterns!
