Family is Forever...September Stamp of the Month


The minute I saw the September Stamp of the Month, I knew what I wanted to do with it.  I love our shadow box frame because it gives me the opportunity to cluster and add thick embellishments.  Let me show you up close so that you can really see.


 Yuletide paper is just gorgeous, and it gives a fabulous old-fashioned Christmas feel to a project.  The hearts are from the stamp of the month, and I've stamped them in ruby, new england ivy, and cashmere.  I placed those first using 3-d foam tape down the center.  That allowed me to fold the hearts up.  The "sweet moments" and "family is forever" sentiments are also from the stamp of the month.  With the hearts down, I was then able to cluster around them using Yuletide stickers and the Yuletide assortment.  What do you think of that big rose?  Close To My Heart is so good about making embellishments just for me!  (Well, it wasn't really made just for me, but it sure is nice to have!)  I gathered the cranberry twill ribbon to layer at the bottom.  I felt like the project needed a little balance, and that's why I added the bow on the left.

As always, the stamp of the month is just $5 with a $50 purchase!  


Thank you for stopping in today, and may your day be most blessed!
