Poster Tidings SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  
This month's stamp from Close to My Heart is "Poster Tidings" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from September 1 - 30, 2013.  This month, you can receive this stamp set for $5 with a qualifying purchase.

If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one of the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Darla's blog – Crafting is Contagious . If you came from Rebecca - Show Me Scrapping then you are in the right place!

 For my project I stamped and then cut up the fall Poster Tidings stamp, using the words that I wanted to feature on my fall wreath. I was inspired by the fall wreath in our new Autumn/Winter Idea Book on page 86. For mine I used the "Fall Harvest" stamp set for the leaves, the Burlap Ribbon and finished it off with Rosewood Mini-Medley Accents.

Happy Fall everyone!

A great reason to join my team!

Every year I am lucky enough to go with my team to a weekend retreat in Heber, Az. This year was again a very relaxing, fun... but most important... productive weekend!
I was able to get 12 double page layouts, 4 single page layouts, 22 cards, 2 pic. frames, a candy holder and a Halloween hat done.

But wait it gets even better!! As a consultant with Close to my Heart I also get to go to an album retreat in UT in just about a month, mid Oct. And then convention in July.... I love this company!!
