What a Hoot!

Hello Hoppers!

Welcome to our August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the August Stamp of the Month from Close to My Heart, which is called "What a Hoot", a set of 17 stamps.

For this blog hop, we will have approximately 67 Close to My Heart consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  This is simple to do -- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  Here we go!

For my post today, I created a Halloween treat bag pulling my inspiration from our brand new Annual Inspirations Idea Book which goes love August 1st!  You are going to LOVE the new book!!

First here's my video showing you the current Stamp of the Month as well as instructions on how I made my project:

Here is a picture of my project:

I just love the way this little treat bag turned out!  I cute this little scalloped bag using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge - you can find the image on page 79.  I cut it at 5".  

I cut the treat bag using our new Scaredy Cat paper pack.  It's also the orange base underneath the "happy Owloween" sentiment.  I cut the base at 1 1/8" x 3 1/2".  

The owl, pumpkin, and sentiment are images in our What a Hoot stamp set.

I also used our Sunset Chevron Washi Tape at the top of the bag to add some "orange" color to the bag.

Finally I used our new Thistle Diagonal Striped ribbon at the top and adhered it using our amazing Liquid Glass adhesive.

Liquid Glass (Z679)
