August SOTM Blog Hop - A Chocolate Affair

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's SOTM, "A Chocolate Affair", a set of 16 stamps. If you have come here from Pamela's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants 
at Helen's Blog.

This month we have approximately 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

A picture of the stamp set is shown here: 

I chose to use the brand new Laughing Lola paper for my projects. I started with a card and then decided to make chocolate chip, oatmeal muffins to go with the card. I love the fact that even though Lagoon is not listed as one of the colours in this kit, it matches perfectly. It is my favourite colour in our palette.

The supplies I used were as follows: 
Paper: Laughing Lola Paper Pack plus cardstock that only comes with this kit, White Daisy Cardstock, Lagoon Cardstock
Stamps: A Chocolate Affair
Inks: Black, Lagoon
Accessories: Artiste Cartridge, Art Philosophy Cartridge, Laughing Lola Assortment, Black and Lagoon Baker's Twine, Scalloped Punch, Bamboo Skewer (not CTMH), Teal and Purple Copic Markers (not CTMH), Foam Tape
