Close To My Heart August Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring the August SOTM, which is Wicked, a set of 9 stamps. If you have come here from Judy's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here .

This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

The project I chose to do is a sleeve for a package of microwave popcorn. These will be so fun to give to some special friends on my list this Halloween. They are super easy to make! Simply cut a 5 1/2" x 9" piece of cardstock, then score and fold at 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" from each end. Wrap the cardstock around the popcorn package and glue the two overlapping ends together with your favorite scrapbooking adhesive.

Before assembling the sleeve, you can stamp the cardstock with whatever you choose to dress it up a bit. I used the honeycomb background stamp that comes int the SOTM set, alternating rows of Pansy Purple and Sunflower. To make the front, use a die or image off the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge, cut it so you have 2 pieces, one larger and one smaller. Then stamp the sentiment on the smaller piece and the wonderful witch image on the larger. I put a couple brads and wrapped some natural Hemp around them to make it look like the sleeve is tied shut. The sleeve actually slides off, this was just for looks.

Super quick and easy!

Here's what you get with the August SOTM set.
