November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Happy November and welcome to Close To My Heart's Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop.  If  you are coming from Dawn's blog I Am A Happy Stamper you are in the right place!  Welcome, so glad you could join us!

This month's stamp set is called Cherish the Day and coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  It is available from now until November 30th for purchase at $17.95 or for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  


I have to say this was not my favorite stamp set at first but once I started using it I found so many really fun projects that I can not show them to you all on this one post.  So I'm going to be posting various projects I made using this stamp set throughout the month - come back to see some more ok?

I was browsing the web, particularly pinterest, for different crafting ideas and came across this advent calendar from Shim & Sons.

(I told my husband I love looking at pinterest for ideas and I pin so many things I could never possibly have enough time to make them all - not to mention the fact that I could spend the whole time looking for ways to decorate my home and never actually get my home decorated - can I get an AMEN?)  Anyway, I so fell in love with it and knew immediately that I wanted to use the Cherish the Day stamp set to make my own.

I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut out the mini pillow boxes (cut at 3 inches), folded them as indicated and cut off the tops to make small pockets.  In each of the pockets is a family activity that we will do together ranging from making Christmas cookies for our mailman, to singing Christmas carols for the residents at the retirement community next door, to decorating Daddy as a Christmas Tree (lights and all).  For more great ideas I found this awesome blog post at tickles to giggles.  I have to say I am so excited about doing this I may not be able to wait until December 1st :)

Have a very fun hop today and may all your months be Merry and Bright as you spread the love of Christmas all year long :)

Now hop on over to Jen at Roxybonds and see what beautiful artwork she has for you using this very special stamp set.

Don't forget the super cute stamp set Holiday Wishes only available until November 30th for $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.  **with a $50 purchase you can get two stamp sets worth $35.90 for only $10!!**  Shop Here
