"Back to the Basics" - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop where we are featuring Close To My Heart products and going "Back to the Basics" with techniques (or whatever the participants have up their sleeves). I can't wait to see what they created and hope you feel the same!

If you are coming from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track. Should you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete list of participants at the end of this post. 

I enjoyed making this 6" x 8" scrapbook page (perfect for our Everyday Life Albums) while incorporating some basic stamping with the use of the images from our October Stamp of the Month, "Autumn Air". 

Espresso is one of my favorite colors of ink and I used it to stamp directly onto the White Daisy cardstock as well as on Kraft, Julep and Paprika. The use of basic stamping is perfect for all types of artwork. For this page, I didn't feel a need to get fancy. 

The striped paper is from the Mix-Ins paper pack and I couldn't resist incorporating some Julep Glitter Paper and sequins. Bling makes all things better.

Thank you very much for stopping by. Now head over to Haley's Blog to see what she has to share with you. Consider leaving a comment before you do. 

Happy hoppin'!
