November SOTM Blog Hop - Cheers

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop. Today, 37 CTMH consultants will be showcasing artwork featuring the November SOTM, Cheers, a set of 16 stamps*. If you've arrived from Carol's blog you are on the right track. For a complete list of hoppers please visit Melinda's blog HERE.

While this stamp set is geared for New Year's celebrations or for documenting resolutions I chose to use it on a scrapbook layout of a live news interview I did a few months ago. The interview was very scary for me and way outside of my comfort zone but I wanted to show my daughter it's OK to try new things. I always tell her to dream big so I knew when I saw that phrase on this stamp set I just had to incorporate it into this layout!

The layout is based on pattern 11 from Make It from Your Heart Volume 2. The papers are from the Sangria kit match the set colors perfectly and the addition of the Gold Foil tape really gives the layout some added interest and shine.

To keep with the gold theme I heat embossed the "Dream Big" and "New Year, New Me!" sentiments with gold embossing powder. I used the banner shapes as journaling accents for my photos. A bit of stamping, a little faux stitching and Pink Enamel Gems finish the layout.

Thanks for checking out my project. I'd love to hear what you. Now please continue on to Jacquelin's blog to see what she's created!
