  I hope you like the different stamp sets that i have used just to show you how versatile #ctmh stamp sets can be and how you can incorporate many of them in one project. 

The minute I saw this stamp set, i new exactly what i was going to make. I made this page for our last christmas, Highlighting my youngest and my very first Christmas with a grandchild. I was able to cut out 3 of the Bauble using the cricut artiste cartridge @ 2 3/4" using colonial white cardstock and them stamp and wet emboss it using cranberry ink. The other 2 baulbes i covered with one of the overlays for the bauble.  Using the shift key on the cricut machine it gives me an overlay shape for it. So perfect and cute. The december 25 stamp was also stamped on a die cut from the cricut artiste cartridge on Colonial white cut out at 1 3/4"and then to stay with the same page and colour theme i cut out another in Cranberry to mat the label. The cranberry label was cut at 2".  

The rope light was first stamped to the right of the page corner using the stamp in the correct position and then i reinked it and turned my stamp upside down so that i could continue on the rope light to the left hand side of the page.  A simple but effective technique.

The christmas love circle was again cut out on the cricut artiste @ 1 1/2"and then again matted with a cranberry circle cut @ 1 3/4". Now the clever thing was that when i was looking for my shapes on the artiste i actually came across a pointed ended circle and realised very quickly that it would match the star circle stamp so even though this stamp doesnt have a cricut matched shape this one does the job quite effectively.  So i cut it out at 3" wet embossed the star circle stamp and then popped the christmas love stamp on top to give the page some dimension.

The remainder of the Layout comes from the Whitepines Scrapbooking Workshop On The Go kit which made a perfect backdrop for this stamp set and it just blended beautifully. Checkout below the items used to make this page.

  If you have a Cricut Expression and the awesome Close To My Heart Cricut Artiste Cricut cartridge collection, and the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge so you can cut out any of the shapes that have a red line around them then this stamp set is a must have.  Its available for purchase for $27.00 from your CTMH Consultant
or from October 1st - 31st  you can purchase it for only $7.50 with EVERY $75.00 you spend. 

How good is it to have a cricut cartridge to cut out the same shape as your stamp and coordinating with them, gee i love Close To My Heart. Both SOTM Twinkle and White Pines Workshop on the Go stamp sets co ordinate with the Cricut Artiste cartridge from Close To My Heart. To save time on fussy cutting i was able to cut out the shapes using my cartridge and my machine and was able to stamp on my die cuts straight away and save time.
