CTMH Stamp of the Month: Wild About Love S1402A Australasian Blog Hop

sept-2-pages-page-007
Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If  you have arrived here from Mandy's Blog, Hall of Indulgence, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by  accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of  this post.

Today I would like to share a scrapbook page which features the February Stamp of the Month, Wild About Love, S1402A available exclusively throughout February for $24 or for just $5 when you spend $75.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary.  Now, you would think a die hard scrap booker like myself would have been a little more pro-active in the photo taking department but we only have one photo from our 'date'.  So, I needed a layout that used up lots of free space on the page!  I decided to veer away from blocks of paper and use the Wild About Love stamps to enhance the story.  I like to think this page represents the naïve artist within me.

I chose the NEW Balloon Ride papers for their soft colours and then used matching Exclusive Inks - Sorbet, Sky, Sweet Leaf and Saddle.

The 29 love hearts (one for each year and one for good luck) were stamped in first and second generation ink.  I finished it off with my numbers cut on the Cricut.

Wild About Love is only available until 28th February from your CTMH consultant.  I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop,  Jo's Blog, Jo's Close To My Heart Classroom.

Happy Scrappin'

Love the way you have mounded the grass at the bottom. Very clever way to use the stamp!

Morning Shaunna, Love the blog hop! Not sure if you know but the hop link from Jenny Crump to Lauren Moore doesn't work & because I was a slow in the uptake of how this worked I clinked on Mandy's and then realised I needed to go forward not backward & discovered Mandy's link to your page doesn't work properly .... At least from IPad it doesn't :-) Great idea! Xx Katrina Crute Tel: 0439 373 282 Brookton WA 6306 >

Thanks Katrina. I realised that problem just now too. I'm on my L plates at the moment with blog hopping and sent Mandy the wrong link. She'll change it the moment she is on Facebook, I'm sure.

Gorgeous Shaunna. I love too love how you have used the stamp for the hills - very clever. Love the bouquet of hearts too. I do hate it when a special occasion comes along and we are so busy enjoying it we forget to take photos, I do this all too often.
