Candlelight Garden December 2015 SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the December 2015 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Candlelight Garden. This month there are almost 35 bloggers sharing projects they created with Candlelight Garden. If blog hopping is new to you, just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Blog hops are circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.


The SOTM for December 2015, Candlelight Garden, is a D-size set of 10 stamps that is $5 with a qualifying purchase. Alternatively you may purchase it for $17.95. Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 1" x 1" (Y1000), 1" x 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 3½" (Y1009), 2" x 6½" (Y1010) and 4" x 4" (Y1012). The stamps in the Candlelight Garden set are:


You should have arrived here from ***Lori Brown's Saving My...***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

For today's hop I created this layout in remembrance of the horrible events in Paris on Friday, November 13, 2015.


I bent and shaped the "swag" stamp to try to make it appear to be lights draped on the Eiffel Tower. I filled in each circle with sparkles. I fussy cut the candle and flowers to resemble the memorials that appeared after that terrible night. I am waiting to find the right photo to place in the lower left. It will be matted with the Slate cardstock.


I plan to display the layout in a Designed Décor Black Shadow Box.


Before you head to ***Michele Rowley's Evergreen Memories***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you would like to start with my Design Space file, you will find it here. If you create a page to record memories, hopefully happy memories, of Paris, I would love to see your creation.

If you are not working with a CTMH Independent Consultant yet, you may purchase the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.

I love to hear what people think of my crafts, so if you have a moment I would be delighted if you leave a comment. So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Michele Rowley's Evergreen Memories***.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you are enjoying the hop.
