Home For The Holidays S1410 CTMH Australiasian Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hi and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Shaunna's Passionate About Pages then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

The October Stamp of the month - Home for the Holidays is just full of Christmas cuteness! 

I know, I know - I said the "Christmas" word - but let's be honest, it's really not that far away now so it really is time to think about all those wonderful, handmade crafty bits and pieces you're planning 

to do.

This stamp set is available exclusively throughout October for $27 - or yours for just $5 when you spend $75.

A great bonus of this stamp set is that it's Cricut compatible and uses the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge to ensure that you can get perfect shapes each time to then stamp.

The red outline shows you which shapes can be cut using your cricut machine and the backplate of the stamp set have the sizing and page number already there for ease of reference. 

I thoroughly enjoyed playing  around with this stamp set
 and my very first creation 
was this totally cute, 
decorated, gift canister
I've used the candy cane and lolly stamp to create the background as well as using it for the cute little hanging tags.

There are so many gorgeous little bits that make this truly pop! From the gold embossing powder used on the flowers, to the stunning red Shimmer Trim, the self adhesive (gotta love that!) Gold sequins and the itty Bitty sparkles to finish it off.

I'm sure everyone would love to receive some Christmas cheer in something like this!

I have also decided to start off the Christmas cheer by making up a limited number of these as into what I call "Grab & Go" kits. The main components are all together in kit form for you to simply then adhere to the container. I highly recommend using our Bonding Memories  glue for this. To find out more about these grab and go kits you can contact me here.

Thanks so much for taking the time to have a look around - don't forget that this wonderfully cute Home For The Holidays stamp set is only available for the month of October from your CTMH Consultant. I'd really love you to leave a comment before you hop on over to Wendy's Expressions of the Heart to see the wonderful ideas she has to share with you.
