September SOTM Blog Hop - Here for the Memories
Welcome to our September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. In this blog hop we are featuring Here for the Memories. This stamp is THE STAMP for Scrapbookers!! This set includes 13 images. If you arrived here from Brandi Robinson's Blog you are on the right track. This hop is a big circle. Just look for the next blog link at the bottom of my post. If you are just getting started on the hop, when you get back to me you will know you have completed the circle! If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers HERE.
The very first thing that came to mind when I saw this stamp set was a DOOR HANGER for the image "Do Not Disturb". After I created the door hanger, I decided to also create a 6x8 page to add to the layouts that I recently just completed using the Bloom With Grace Scrapbooking Kit. This little page will be a great addition that will tell an extra story.
I used pattern papers from both the Bloom with Grace paper pack and the Wood Grains paper pack on this page. Check our new Mini Envelope Thin Cut! I cut it out in Canary Cardstock and then I cut another one using the other side of the Sunflower Paper. I trimmed it down to be the liner of the envelope. I made the envelope look as if it was 'collecting memories' just like the sentiment says. The cute little heart border in fern cardstock is from our new Fancy Borders Thin Cuts.
The door hanger was simple. I just used the Circle Shaker Window frame to frame my circle. I used another pattern from our Wood Grain Paper and the Sunflower pattern paper from Bloom With Grace to create the front. I created a border with another one of the new Fancy Borders Thin Cuts. I stamped the Do Not Disturb on another new thin cut - Stitched Hexagons! See the faux stitching around the edge? That was stamped using the letter "L" from image LOVE on the stamp set! The Sangria Ribbon added just the bit of extra color I needed to finish off the hanger!
