You’re The Bomb – Operation Smile Blog Hop


Blog BadgeOperation Smile is a private,  not for profit organisation providing reconstructive facial surgery to children and young adults born in developing countries. On 1st December Close to My Heart Consultants released our Seasonal Expressions Idea Book. On the back page of this Idea book you will find the C- sized, You’re the Bomb stamp set (C1617). By purchasing this set at full retail price  of $21 you can help change the life of a child as CTMH will donate $US3 from your purchase to Operation Smile. Make your purchase before March 31st to ensure your donation.

Today we will be sharing some inspiration using You’re the Bomb. We hope you will be compelled to purchase this set and in so doing, contribute to the life changing work of operation smile.  If you’ve arrived from Denise’s Blog you are in the right spot. Hop through to each consultant’s blog for some awesome ideas for using this stamp set.

I’ve used the stamp set within my journalling boxes on this layout of one of the smilingest evenings I had in 2013.

I love the positive words and the font used for them.  This was a very happy evening with my ‘neice’ – you know the ones you aren’t related too but they feel as close as family.  I chose these photos for the today’s blog hop because these girlies have gorgeous smiles and we take that a bit for granted.

I’ve used the Heartstrings Workshop on the Go Stamps (G1090), Heartstrings Papers (X7193B) and Heartstrings Complements (X7193C) on my layout.  It’s such a great pack for wedding related pages.

The beautiful doily frame was cut using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge (Z1790).  I also added a bit of our new white shimmer trim either side of the zip strip accents.  This layout was inspired by the Crystal Ball Layout in the Magic How To Book (9040).

All it takes to correct one cleft lip or cleft palette in a third worl country is $275 AU donated to Operation Smile.  I hope you will support this valuable program by purchasing the You’re the Bomb (C1617)stamp set.  Visit your consultant’s website to place your order.
