November SOTM Blog Hop - Cheers, 2016!

Welcome to November's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "Cheers, 2016!" - a set of 17 stamps. This is a set of stamps designed to welcome the new year and all that goes with it. The bloggers along this blog hop will show you several ideas, so sit back and enjoy the tour. You should have arrived here from Lauren Moore's blog

If you get lost, a list of all blogs can be found here

The stamp set looks like this.

I am not a fan of making resolutions for the new year but a friend of mine is what I would call an addict when when it comes to that sort of thing. This year, I thought I would create a layout for her to accommodate her "addiction" and this stamp set was perfect to do that!

I close to use the Paper Fundamentals rather than a paper pack for this layout. It's hard to see in the photograph but the flowers and the large stars are cut from the Paper Fundamentals Cardstock and the side piece is also from that same line. The chevron background was done with a stencil cut from one of the CTMH Cricut cartridges - very easy to do.

I hope you enjoyed my project. 

The next blog on the hop is Priscilla Gotham's blog
I'm sure she has something wonderful to share with you.

You can get this stamp set for just $6 this month with a $50 purchase.
