Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Georgia’s Blog, you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it. Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from. Each blog will showcase a project featuring the Yuletide Joy (S1610) stamp set which is October’s Stamp of the Month.
Who can resist these gorgeous Christmas shapes with their intricate designs? Stamp and colour them to really personalise each design or do as I have and keep them uncoloured. Today’s layout features non-traditional Christmas colours. I just love the Adventure Cardstock colours with Christmas stamps this year – so fun and a bit different.
This layout will feature photos of our first Christmas gathering to include my son’s girlfriend. How fabulous it is to have 6 in our family to celebrate with now. I used versamark ink and white embossing powder to really make the stocking and star designs pop.
All About The Gold Fundamentals are clear 12″ x 12″ overlays with gold patterns printed on them. A strip of the diagonal stripe provided the anchor to hang my stockings on. The title is one of our new Thin Cuts – Christmas. I love this font.
The star is also gorgeous in this stamp set and made a nice focal point for this embellishment cluster placed diagonally opposite the title to help frame the page.
You will find details of the products used on the layout at the end of this post.
Yuletide Joy (S1610) is only available during October, 2016. Full retail price is $27 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $7.50 when accompanied by a $75 order. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant.
