Little Reminder - January Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring January's SOTM, Little Reminder, a set of 25 stamps.  If you have come here from HELEN'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 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. Following the blog hop 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!


What a great little set!  I love the numbers!   This month I created a layout for my Daughter's 17th birthday.  She LOVES Zebra print so I used the paper from Roxie Level 2 paper pack (X7140B) for this layout.   Each year, the new Twilight movie comes out either the day before or ON Kayli's birthday so she and her friends celebrate her birthday by seeing the movie!   This year, the new movie actually came out on the same day as her birthday.   I used the Little Reminder to mark the date of this layout. I used the TOP HAT layout pattern from Jeanette Lynton's How To Book - Magic.



Here is a close up look:

I used the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge to cut out the circles and also the banner that I used to cover the matching die-cut banner.   For the date, I inked the stamp in black and then used a wet wipe to wipe away the black ink from "NOV" and "19". I used the Tulip marker to color them so that the date would stand out.  I stamped the numbers 17 and cut them out to note her age!


Also - Here is a fun birthday card I made using this set.  I was browsing through my new Paper Crafts Get Inspired magazine and was inspired by a card made by Kimberly Crawford.  She used numbers on a Kraft card.   I created a similar card with this stamp set!

I stamped the "let's celebrate" sentient onto the white grosgrain ribbon.   I used Pacifica, Tulip, Topiary and Sunflower along with Black Ink for my numbers.  I stamped the numbers randomly on a 6x6 Kraft card (Z1474).  The fabric covered brad is from the Fanfare Designer brads (now retired).  It holds down my scalloped flap.

Remember, you can get this Little Reminder stamp for only $5 with the $50 Close To My Heart purchase!  See my website www.ctmh.com/stampinheaven to order or contact me! 

Now, hop on to GEORGIA'S BLOG to see what she created!
