September SOTM - Grateful for This Life Blog Hop


Welcome to our September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. In this blog hop we are featuring Grateful for this Life. This set includes 16  word images to share the things that you are grateful for! If you arrived here from Lauren's CTMH Craftings 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

I had fun using many of our new products from our 2021 - 2022 CORE Catalog.  This page absolutely did NOT start out to end up like this.  How many times have you started a card or layout with an image in mind of what your final product will look like but it ends up totally different?   That was me on this one!   I purchased the new Pumpkin Spice Digital Art Collection (it downloads right away to your CTMH Digital account when you purchase it.)   

I had planned to used the leaf overlay used on the layout on this page.  But I decided I needed a little pizzazz so I sprayed my overlay with the new Gilt Gloss Spray. I didn't feel like the  Gloss spray showed up enough on the Sapphire leaf overlay but when I picked up from the box I was using to spray, I really liked the impression it left in my box!!  So I decided to use the overlay as a stencil for my base page with the Gloss spray.  I had cut a few leaves in Paprika so I used the gloss spray and stencil on the leaves as well.

I started having so much fun with Gloss Spray that I decided to spray my Wooden Pumpkin Spice Stickers as well!  So finally, my page came together with a final sprinkling of Autumn Sequins.  The page didn't come out as originally designed in my head but I do think I like the end result!
