CTMH SOTM Blog Hop-- Circus Alphabet

Hello, welcome to July's SOTM Blog Hop.  This month we have over 40 CTMH consultants joining us. The hop is one big loop.  If you just came here from Judy's Blog, then you are on the right path.  Should you get lost, please click Here.

July's SOTM features Circus Alphabet, a set of whimsical letters-- 68 piece is all!

For this hop, I chose to create a LO of my daughter.  My daughter is her own person and she beats to her own drum!  I had this picture of her for quite sometime, not really sure what to do with it.  To me, it captured her individuality, the sort of I don't care--- I don't care that I'm posing in the middle HS with a dragon that is about to eat me!!

To start, I used the Free to Me special paper line and cut out "1 of Kind" saying from CTMH's Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  Next, I used the Circus Alpha and stamped "BE YOU!".  Worked perfectly:)

All of the CTMH patterned papers have a little 1/2 borders on them. Here, I used the border and made 3 little arrows with sayings.
For the arrow, I used CTMH's White Marquee Enamel Shapes.  You just stick the paper to the back and trim the paper to match.  So easy.

For the journalling, I used the Artbooking notebook stamp and Cricut image.  This comes in so handy.

Love the Ruby Chevron washi tape! What did we do before washi tape???

Here's a close up of the phrase from Artbooking.  I cut it out at 7 inches and then cut out the white backing in 7.25 inches.  Next, I inked the edges in Desert Sand.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  If you love this stamp and don't have a consultant, then please visit my store.

Be sure to visit all of the consultants' blogs.  Next up is Michelle Loncar.  Her work is great and you'll love be glad that you stopped by her Blog.
Thanks, Maureen:)
