S1611 New year's Cheer SOTM Blog Hop

Blog Badge

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Maz'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 New Year's Cheer (S1611) stamp set which is November's Stamp of the Month.



There is so much goodness on this one carrier sheet of stamps.  Party invitation details, salutations for cards, that girlie bow  (super cute for pages and cards) and my favourites, the two lovely glasses with the little bubbles!


I meet with 2 of my gorgeous friends once a month to spend the day scrapbooking together. The person hosting provides lunch and champagne.  The day has become known to us as "Bubbles Day".  I am on a mission to record some of the regular everyday things I do in my 'Book of Me' Album.  This layout will celebrate our friendship and how much we love this monthly catch up.



To create the title use the flag and bow stamps.  These were cut using the Cricut Flower Market cartridge but they are simple shapes easily cut by hand.  The font is also from Flower Market.  The papers used on the layout are scraps left over from creating the City Sidewalks Workshop Your Way (G1114) layouts and cards.  How cool that they don't look Christmassy at all here.


Working on a Sapphire cardstock background meant a journal box was needed.  Rather than a solid box, these strips provide enough room for a couple of lines each and the bows act as bullet points.


The champagne flutes were stamped using Lagoon ink (Z2895)on Lagoon cardstock.  The Shimmer Brush (Z3293) was perfect to 'fill' the glasses and looks really fun in real life.

You will find a list of the products used on the layout at the end of this post.

New Year's Cheer (S1611) is only available during November, 2016.  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 Close To My Heart Consultant.

You never fail to impress! Love the Banner Title & the use of the bows above the banners. What a great touch to add the shimmer on the glasses - so replicating that idea. It all makes for a lovely layout.
