Close To My Heart August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Can you believe it?  August 1st and the summer here is almost over!  Welcome to the CTMH August stamp of the month blog hop :)  I'm glad you are here.  If you are coming from Shirley's blog you are in the right place.  This is a full circle but if you want to start at the beginning (or see the full list of blogs) you can go to Helen's blog.  I can't wait to show you how cute this month's stamp set is.

When I saw it I immediately thought of my friends who sell for different Direct Sales chocolate companies (Velata, Dove, and more).  I thought about how perfect this stamp set is for creating gift tags and mini cards for chocolate gift baskets.

You can get this stamp set one of two ways this month (so excited!):
You can purchase it from your CTMH consultant (or off my website here) for $17.95 or
You can place an order of $50 with your consultant (or off my website here) and get it for $5  FREE  that is right normally with a $50 purchase you get the stamp of the month for $5 but this month you get it FREE!

My friend Ashley sent me some Velata Chocolate and a super cute warmer for indoor smores.

We tried them out over our vacation last week and I created a Project Life page about our experience. Here are the cards (I love making my own PL cards with CTMH papers and stamps!).

And the full page - sorry it is hard to photograph pages in page protectors :)

It rained the night we had our smores so it was a perfect night to do it - because the warmer is electric we just heated the chocolate in the microwave and kept it warm in the mini electric fondue warmer :)  The kids had a blast and asked every night if we could do chocolate again!

I never did meet a chocolate I did not like!  These were so super easy to use.  If you want to win a pack to try for yourself follow this link here :)

Now it is time to hop on over to Haley's blog to see what she created!  Happy August and happy hopping :)
