July Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring July's SOTM, which is "You've Got Flair", a set of 8 stamps. If you have come here from Adeline's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!
This month we have 43 talented 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!

Here are the first pages I created with the July Stamp of the Month, "You've Got Flair". I first made my own Background & Texture paper by randomly stamping and then coloring the images with the Exclusive Ink Markers. Sorry they are so hard to see since most of the images were covered when making the photo mats. I also cut out a couple of the images to use as extra embellishments on the pages.

I used the pages pattern from our "How To" program book, "Cherish" entitled "Visual Texture" on pages 34 & 35.

Products used:

Cherish How To Program (9029)

Cardstock: Colonial White, Bamboo, Desert Sand, Olive, Vineyard Berry

Inks: Bamboo, Chocolate, Desert Sand, Olive, Vineyard Berry, Honey

Embellishments: Chocolate Edge Anchors, Chocolate Brads, Chocolate Waxy Flax
