Close To My Heart Stamp of the month Blog Hop

 Well here we are on the eve of July 1st!  I don't know about you but my June just flew by - perhaps that is because I spent all of June (that is right the entire month!!) on my sofa with a broken ankle :(  Well enough about that, even with all the pain I am super excited about July!  I get to go to Dallas for the CTMH convention (first time in Dallas, first time to convention, and first time traveling alone without the kids or hubby since my youngest was born), we are going as a family to Harvey Cedars for a week with our youth group and I have a new stamp of the month to show you!  Not to mention the fireworks and picnics - yeah July is a good month :)
If you are coming from Jen's blog you are in the right spot.  This is a round robin style hop so you can just follow along and view a ton of terrific projects using this month's stamp set.  If you want to start at the beginning or get lost along the way you can find the complete list here at Helen's Blog

This month I made this card (I'm sorry about the photos - I'm having camera issues so these are taken with my husband's phone)

I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut the boarder images.  You'll find this boarder by selecting "font" and "shift".  The bottom row and first key on the left is the boarder I used.  I cut out the border image at 1" and placed them with space between to give the chevron look.  

Here is another view of the card.

  6. Cool card Elizabeth! The sentiment fits perefectly with the chevrons!!

  7. The chevron design is right on trend. Love it.

  8. Did you use the border image from CTMH AP?
    Which one did you use? Was it on page 63? How did you make it double sided?

  9. Thank you for your sweet comments ladies. Yes Karen I did use a boarder image from the CTMH AP cart. I'll update it on the actual post. I used the border - font - shift - bottom row - first key on the left. I cut them at 1 inch and then placed them on the card stock with space in between to give the chevron look.

  10. Nice card Elizabeth! Love those chevrons! :)

  11. The chevron border looks great!
