Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring 's Stamp of the Month, which is "Flower Pot," a set of 16 stamps. If you have come here from Tanya David's blog, you are on the right path! This is a circular hop, so you can start here and hop your way around to all the participating consultant blogs!

This month we have more than 65 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Ready to hop? Let's go!

All of my cards are made using the Caboodle Level 2 Paper Packet:

This card is made from a piece of acetate (purchased at an office supply store):

The flowers and flower box are chalked:

And the inside of the card:

Now "hop" on over to Pamela O'Connor's blog to see her fabulous work! You won't be disappointed -- she does great work!

Dare to Dream #3: Acrylic Stamps

When CTMH switched from wood stamps to acrylic several years ago, I wasn't sure I would like the change. It only took one time stamping with the new acrylics, though, to change my mind. I love these beautiful stamps! Here's why:

  • Cost effective - The price points are much lower than wood stamps.
  • Quality - CTMH stamps are made from a material that is superior to other acrylic stamps -- durable and high quality to give a good impression.
  • Easy to use - Peel from the carrier sheet, attach to the acrylic block, stamp, clean, and put the stamp back on the carrier sheet! Easy!
  • Storage - The stamps come in a cute little 6x6 heavy plastic envelope -- so easy to store! They're lightweight, too, making it easy to take them along to your next crop.
  • Design - Gorgeous, current designs with a lot of variety. There's something for everyone!

Seven years ago, I made the decision to become a CTMH consultant, and I have never regretted that decision. I took a one-year hiatus after starting back to college, but I missed it so much that I came back about 18 months ago. This company ROCKS, and they are offering you an amazing deal if you sign up during the month of March to be a consultant.

In addition to over $300 worth of products and supplies to start your business for only $99, you will also receive all four Stamp of the Month sets from the upcoming Summer Idea book! That's another $91.80 value -- FREE! You will also have the stamp sets before any other consultant can order them. Sweet!!

I'll be sharing 30 reasons why you should become a CTMH consultant in March. I love what I do and would love to share that with YOU! Signing up is so easy -- just go to my website {here}. On the "Your Opportunities" page, scroll to the bottom and click on the link that says "click here" next to "To sign up or for more information to become a Consultant." The link will take you to the electronic application and will designate me as your sponsor (upline). Like everything with CTMH, it is faster, simpler, and easier! I look forward to hearing from you!
