April SOTM blog hop- Typed Note

Welcome to our MONTHLY
Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!!

If you have come here from
you are on the right track!!

This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE April SOTM stamp set called “Typed Note”.  

This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here & work your way around to the many consultants on this "hop"!  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of PARTICIPATING CONSULTANTS by clicking HERE

This month we have OVER 65 Close To My Heart Consultants that will be sharing items they have created using this month’s stamp set!  

So, sit back & enjoy your tour as you click on the link at the end of the post to see what EACH consultant has created!!
This stamp set has been on my customers radar ever since the new Annual Inspirations book came live in August 2014! J

I was excited to get started creating with this stamp set...and here is the card I came up with. 

I used the NEW Jackson paper pack - YES - BRAND NEW - live to order on April 1st!

This new HANDSOME paper pack will be used for MANY projects.  The deep colors of Barn Red, Cocoa, Glacier & Juniper is a FABULOUS color combo!

You'll want to make sure to take a peek at the coordinating Complements & Assortment pieces that are a part of this collection too!! 

When I saw the Jackson paper - I thought of rustic, rugged, handsome....and out came my Edge Distresser to add some "ruggedness" to this card. J

I decided to stamp the typewriter 2 times...so that I could cut out one of the typewriter's and "pop" it for some added dimension. 

At the top of the card, I added a plastic clip from CTMH.  Our current Wildwood My Crush collection coordinates PERFECTLY with this NEW Jackson paper pack!!  Wahoo!!!! 

These clips are a GREAT addition - I love the designs & patterns of them. 

Here is the list of products I used on this card in case you'd like to create one of your own!  Happy Crafting! J

that can help YOU CHANGE the life of a child!!  clip_image004

When you purchase this C-size stamp set, “You’re the Bomb”CTMH will DONATE $3 of the proceeds to Operation Smile. 

Here is a picture of the stamp set – it’s our FABULOUS price of ONLY $13.95!! 

Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has performed over 220,000 surgical procedures to correct facial deformities (cleft palette, cleft lip, etc) in children.  It only takes an hour for volunteer medical teams to perform these life-altering surgeries that will give children confidence for a lifetime!!

WE, as consultants, have been blessed to hear MULTIPLE testimonies about how Operation Smile has impacted so many children's lives!  We have also been privileged to meet a few of these people, and meet the founder of this organization at past Conventions. 

Please take a moment and go to the Operation Smile website to see these beautiful children & what Operation Smile has done for them…

and THEN  J,

why not JOIN us, and purchase this stamp set for your crafting needs, 
so that CTMH will give $3 to Operation Smile?

You will also have opportunity to “round up” your CTMH order total – OR give another donation amount onto your order for these kids. 

ALL of these donation increases go DIRECTLY to the Operation Smile children….will you consider giving these extra” pennies” to the children to help them be able to correct their facial deformities? 

Join us today in helping these children! J

Feel free to head on over to my website to place your order, and PLEASE contact me if you have any questions!  J

Blessings to you for a beautiful day!
