Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: June 2013 A Flowering Bunch

Close To My Heart has a cute, retro-inspired stamp of the month for June!  A Flowering Bunch is a set of 10 hip stamps.  Join me on this month's blog hop to see all kinds of great ideas with this set.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from the talented Wendy Coffman's blog.  Check out my project, leave a comment, and then head on over to visit Sheila Bennett next.)

This stamp set seemed to pair well with the Claire paper collection, and in browsing through my photo storage system, I found these darling pictures of my DD (who will be 15 later this month!!!!) back when she was a year old.  I knew they would pair perfectly together!  I found a great sketch in my (retired) Cherish how-to guide, and the rest was easy peasy.

After stamping in Outdoor Denim, I colored some of the flowers with markers from the Claire color palette.  I used the CTMH/Cricut Artiste cartridge to make the title banner and the flower cutouts.  The pretty embellishments are also part of the Claire collection.  CTMH makes it so easy to mix and match!

Be sure to stop back often, because even in the midst of our remodel, since school is out I have found a little time to craft so I have more to share.  Hope to "see" you soon! Now go see Sheila's spectacular creation!  Thanks for hopping by!  Be sure to check out this month's Close To My Heart special offers on my sidebar.  There are some great opportunities this month!
