Blog BadgeWelcome to the December Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Leah's Blog you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it.  Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from.  Each blog will showcase a project featuring the Candlelight Garden (S1512) stamp set which is December's Stamp of the Month.

S1512

This stamp set lends itself to watercolours perfectly and what better paper to blend with it than Kaleidoscope.  My layout today celebrates the relationship between my mother and my daughter.  It's a very special bond they share.

This design is from Magic (9040), one of my favourite How To Books when  a special layout is required. You will find it on page 110.

The little heart on the stamp set is gorgeous.  Colour each one with watercolour pencils (3505) and cut them out.  The lagoon paper was dry embossed using the Stripe Embossing Folder (Z1960)

I wanted to create a space for Kathryn to journal her own thoughts about Nanny so created these 3 pockets on the page.  The Gypsy print paper is mounted on Thin 3D Foam Tape (Z2060) so the journal tag can slide into it.

Mount the bunch of flowers on Thick 3D Foam Tape (Z1151) so it sits over the pocket.

Candlelight Garden (S1512) is only available during December, 2015.  Full retail price is $27 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $7.50 when accompanied by a $75 order. Place your order with your CTMH Consultant.

Did you like this layout? I’d love you to leave a comment for me before you click on the underlined link and move on to Vandra's Blog , Vandra's Virtual CTMH Craftroom, to see what she has designed for you.

Happy Scrappin’
