Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Collen’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 Storybook Alphabet (S1707) stamp set which is July’s Stamp of the Month.
How pretty are these letters? Do you remember reading storybooks where the first letter in each chapter was all fancy like this? That is known as historiated initials. You could do that with your journaling in your albums. Of course these letters will also be fabulous for creating titles.
When I looked at this stamp set the letters reminded me of embroidery samplers. I happened to be talking to some customers about re-visiting some old techniques and running a patchwork pages class next month and that got me thinking about using these letters to create an alphabet quilt page.
You will find a list of the products used on the layout at the end of this post.
Storybook Alphabet (S1707) is only available during July, 2017. 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.
