Good morning and welcome to our National Stamping Month Blog Hop!

At Close to My Heart, we want to celebrate the everyday moments in our lives.  Close to My Heart is doing that by offering an amazing exclusive double-stamp set called “It’s Your Day”.  This is two D-size stamp sets in one!!

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects.

For my project I decided to make a mini album for Halloween.  Here are some pictures:


To make this mini album, I used our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  The pages can be found on page 59,key C9 - I cut them at 3".  I used our Moonlight paper pack as well as Haunted Assortment for the little skeleton brad.  The "2012" comes from our Glamour Glitter Alphabet set.

I used our National Stamping Month stamp set "It's Your Day" for the sentiment on the front "This is our story".  I was also able to use the Artiste to cut out the speech bubble:  page 65, D5, Shift, Accent 2 cut at 1 1/2".  The little tabs at the top of each page with the days of the week also come from the "It's Your Day" stamp set.
