February CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Home Sweet Home

February is such an exciting month at Close To My Heart!  We have a new Idea Book release (WOOHOO!), an awesome Studio J special ($5 two-page layouts), and the comfy, cozy, there's-no-place-like-home February stamp of the month, Home Sweet Home.  If you'd like to see more Home Sweet Home artwork, be sure to follow this blog hop.  After you visit here, go to Michelle's blog next.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Traci's blog.)

This stamp set couldn't come at a better time for me because we will be undertaking a huge home remodel in the coming months.  (Yikes!)  I've decided to document our journey with a simple photo album (not from CTMH) where I slip in the photos and some journaling rather than create an elaborate scrapbook.  I think the Avonlea paper collection will go nicely with the way-before pictures (from when it was built in 1984), to the current photos, and then of the demolition and remodel.  Here's the front of the album:
And my title frame (4"x6"):

All the fancy cuts, including the house, were made with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!  Before you leave, I'd like to invite you to my 13th CTMH Anniversary Open House on Saturday, Feb. 16.  Drop in any time from 1:00-5:30 for free make & takes, prizes, and more!

Also, be sure to come back Monday because I'll be featuring this stamp set again along with the first February challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges! ;)  Now, please click on her name to go see what Michelle has made!

Good luck on the remodel! I have before and after pictures of my kitchen and bath - the house was built in 1992 - the mauve and gray is gone!! Journaling the remodel is a great idea and this is the perfect stamp set for it!

I'm glad you are going to document the remodel. It will help you keep your sanity and will be fun to look back on in the future. Great idea!

Hate to miss your open house...
