October SOTM Blog Hop

I am happy to be participating in this month's CTMH SOTM Blog Hop.  I love Christmas and have had fun playing with this month's Christmas themed stamp set, Home for the Holidays, which is a set of 7 stamps.  If you have arrived here from Terry Ann Diack's Blog, Just A TAD Crafty, then you are on the right path!  Since the blog hop is a great big circle, you can start here and work all the way around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda's Blog.  This month we have 73 Close to my Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the October SOTM and other great CTMH products.

I wanted to decorate a package and have always loved the simplicity of kraft paper packages.  They provide the perfect canvas on which to create.  Since I happened to have some on hand and decided to wrap a small package and decorate it using this stamp set.  Here is the final package...


 and a couple of close up pictures so you can see the wonderful texture that results from heat embossing  ...



This is the list of CTMH products that were used on this project:
Thanks for stopping by! You can continue along the Blog Hop by visiting Suzanne Webster-Lowrie's blog, Scrappin Sue, to see what she has created using Home for the Holidays.  Be sure to visit all the Consultant's blogs to get many wonderful ideas and inspirations for your crafting time.  Remember, the October SOTM is only available until the end of the month!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click HERE)  to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.

    1. You are very welcomed...I was disappointed with the flatness of my main picture, but the two close ups really captured the beauty of the embossing.
