April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Barbra's Blog you're on the right track. Wasn't her Mother's Day card adorable?! If this is your starting point, sit back and relax...there's lots of fantastic artwork coming your way!! We have over 70 talented consultants sharing their art and ideas this month!!

The Stamp of the Month for April is called Flower Pot (D1409) and with a qualifying purchase of $100 you can get your hands on this adorable set for FREE!


This month I found myself in need of a booking board for gatherings. A booking board is filled with available dates for gatherings. Many consultants offer an extra incentive via a booking board if you choose a date on their board. I used the Flower Pot set, along with the May Constant Campaign Miracle kit to create my booking board. I wanted it to be simple, yet fun. So, when you decide on one of my preferred dates for your gathering, you will simply pick a flower to reveal your extra gift! Who wouldn't love an extra gift?!

As I mentioned, I used the Miracle kit (featuring Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf, and Bamboo colors) and then added in a touch of Vineyard Berry and Hollyhock to give it some flair.

The little window stamp was perfect for showcasing my flowers, which are essentially tags that are tucked under the paper. I am very pleased at the way it turned out and can't wait to use it at my next gathering!

Now, hop along to Cieble's Blog to see the beautiful card she created! Don't forget to leave a comment here before you go...I love to hear what you think of my work! Have fun hopping!! :)

CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop


This month we are featuring CTMH's fantastic Liquid Glass! If you arrived here from Cindy's blog, you're on the right track. If this is your first stop, enjoy the ride! There are eight consultants sharing their ideas and projects this time around.

Liquid Glass is a versatile embellishment that can be used for so many things, but most importantly to give your projects shine and flair! Liquid glass gives a glossy, glaze-like effect and can also be used as a strong adhesive. (I've used it for many household projects, too! It's super strong!!) I love this stuff!

For this month's hop, I took three cards that I had previously created and added liquid glass to add some dimension and shine. I added tiny dots of liquid glass to the center of the flower on the daisy card...


liquid glass to the ribbon on the birthday card...

and to the eyes of the cute little monster on this card...


For the mini album below, I added liquid glass over the entire green star making it dimensional and shiny! It doesn't show that great in the picture, but applying liquid glass to an embellishment like this really makes the project stand out!


To get your own bottle of liquid glass, click here to order online. Once you start playing with liquid glass, you won't stop! :)

Take a look at the next stop on the blog, Wendy's Scrapbooking Blog, to see how she used liquid glass! Enjoy the hop!
