"Here for the Memories" Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

It's another GREAT month at Close To My Heart as we welcome in a NEW Stamp of the Month AND...(drum roll) TWO NEW IDEA BOOKS! WOOHOO! Yes, you heard me right! Today is the day!

Here is an image of the gorgeous front covers! Click on this link to view the digital versions. You can get FREE hard copies of both, when you place an order of any size. 

But let's get back to the purpose of this Blog Hop, shall we?! LOL (It's so easy to get distracted with the above.)

Today we are showcasing artwork using the "Here for the Memories" September Stamp of the Month. With 13 awesome images, perfect for scrapbooking, they are sure to help you preserve those awesome moments you have experienced.

I love the colors and elements incorporated on this 6" x 8" scrapbook page. By keeping it simple, and allowing the sentiment and paper to stand out, I didn't feel the need to do a whole lot. 

The paper comes from the "Bloom with Grace" Collection. While I'm not a sunflower girl, this paper is quickly growing on me. LOL

Ruby cardstock was used on the hearts, one on each side of the paper to create the two tones, and on the title strip. The title was embossed with white powder and some gold elements were added in the way of Gold Sequins and Gold Embellishing Thread. I couldn't resist adding one white Acrylic Heart to support the theme. 

This layout is cheerful and ready for preserving some memories. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Head over to Cat's Blog to see her artwork. I appreciate you stopping by!
