School Year CTMH SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2017 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set School Year. This month there are about 20 bloggers sharing projects they created with the CTMH Stamp Of The Month. If blog hopping is new to you, we try to keep it easy: just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.


You should have arrived here from ***Sheila's Stamping Stuff by Sheila Bennett***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.


This was a hard stamp set for me to work with since I do not have children or grandchildren that will be headed off to school, so I am hoping you like what I came up with: bookmarks.


I was thinking that cute bookmarks would encourage reading and lead to some excitement for the start of the school year. They could easily be personalized with a child's name.

UPDATE - I cannot believe I forgot to mention this. I used the back of the pencil stamp when using Canary ink and then I used the stamp "as normal" when stamping with the Black Memento. I was able to "color" my pencil without pulling out my markers or Watercolor Pencils.

Before you head to ***Vickie ODell's HeARTful Stamper***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

If you have a moment before you head to the next blog it would be wonderful if you left me a comment letting me know what you think of the bookmarks. Thanks for hopping with us! So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Vickie ODell's HeARTful Stamper***.
