Bloom & Grow - January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Happy New Year! Thank you for joining us today as we welcome in the new year and highlight the first Stamp of the Month in 2018, "Bloom and Grow". The title alone let's us know that today, and this month, provides an opportunity for a new start as we make progress towards our dreams and goals in 2018. And speaking of new starts...
NEW PRODUCTS ARE HERE! We have brand new products releasing today in the Seasonal Expression I Idea Book, many that I would guess will be incorporated in the artwork featured in this hop. You can get a FREE copy when you place an order. (Otherwise, contact your Consultant for additional information.)
The stamp set includes 15 images and can be yours for $5 with a qualifying order. The sentiments contain inspiring messages and some beautiful images are also included. You can find all details by clicking here.

If you are coming from Vickie's Blog, you are on the right track. We've got 21 Close To My Heart Consultants highlighting this stamp set so be sure to continue through the blog links to see them all. If you were to get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participants here.
The beautiful new papers included on this card are from the new line, "Gimme Some Sugar". Aren't they gorgeous? I love the color combination and that floral paper is perfect for the sentiment.
The paper packet has some patterns focused on cooking, recipes, etc. but as always, offers patterns that allow you to use them outside of the obvious theme. You can find the entire Gimme Some Sugar line by clicking on the link where you can enlarge the images and see the details better.

That cute bling... They are Bashful Pearls. A few of them were perfect for a little "bling".

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Your visit is always appreciated and welcome. I love to hear from you so please consider leaving a comment before heading over to Cat's Blog to see her wonderful creation.

I wish you all the best in 2018! Happy New Year!
