Stamp of the Month Bloghop for August 2014

Ahh, I know that summer is drawing to a close when I see a Halloween Stamp Set as the Stamp of the Month!  But it's okay because the SOTM is adorable!  And you're about to see some wonderful artwork using it.

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Bloghop!  There are 67 CTMH consultants participating in this month's bloghop!!  Each one's blog will feature the darling, August SOTM - "What a Hoot" containing 17 images.

The bloghop is a very large loop of blog posts.  You can start anywhere and then make your way around the hop.  You may be beginning right here or you may have just come from Sheila Bennett's BlogAfter my post hop over to Michelle Loncar's Blog.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete list of the bloggers at

This month I created a Halloween Card from the SOTM.  There were so many options from which to select.  Here is what I came up with:

The products I used were August Stamp of the Month, Scaredy Cat Paper Packet, Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon, Sunset Chevron Washi Tape, Black Glitter Paper, Black Enamel Stars, Black Exclusive Ink Pad, Value Pack White Daisy Card Bases, and Tombow Adhesive.
You can buy the August SOTM, "What a Hoot", anytime during the month of August.  When your order is at least $50 you can get it for just $5.  Or buy only the SOTM for $17.95.  You may click here to purchase your own "What a Hoot" from my retail site.
I hope you are enjoying our SOTM bloghop for August!  Thanks for stopping by...Nancy

Piercing & Embossing Tool Kit

This handy gadget does more than pierce paper and emboss fine details.  I use it to pick up small, adhesive-backed embellishments.  Just put the piercing end under a gem for instance and lift.  The gem will be stuck to the piercer so that you can place it exactly where you want it on your artwork.
