November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Around the Block

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
We will be featuring November's SOTM, which is Around the Block. If you have come here from Brenda's Blog, you are on the right path!
This month we have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM 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!

I have to give credit for my idea to Karen P., a wonderful CTMH consultant, that created a beautiful set of cards with this stamp set, making the houses into gingerbread houses. My family has the tradition of making gingerbread houses every Christmas season. So I used this stamp set to get a layout ready to go for our gingerbread houses this year. I used liquid applique to acheive the look of the houses and did not worry about perfection. After all, what I love most about the houses that my children make is the tiny imperfections!
Supplies used:
Jingle Creative Basics
Desert Sand Cardstock
Juniper Cardstock
White Daisy Cardstock
Around the Block stamp set
Posterboard Alphabet stamp set
Classmate Alphabet stamp set
Holiday Commentary stamp set
Imagine (Monologue layout)
Cocoa ink
Tulip ink
Liquid Applique
Now "Hop" on over to Linda's Blog to see her work!
Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the November SOTM is only available until November 30!
