For the Love of Crafting Blog Hop

Welcome to the For Love of Crafting Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the August For the Love of Crafting stamp set.  It’s has been over two months since I have last participated in a blog hop and I am so glad I was able to sign-up for this one. I ♥LOVE♥30711091_10155576344187686_8291532271368366588_n this stamp set and I know you will too. If you have come here from Priscilla Gotham’s blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog. This blog hop is designed to allow you to start here and work your way around. It’s simple, fun, and full of ideas using the For the Love of Crafting stamp set. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

The project you see below is similar to one I made for the NA Convention this year. I had quite a few people ask me how to make this little ditty, so I decided it would be the perfect project for this blog hop.  As an added bonus, I am including the instructions in a PDF file FREE for you to download and use.


The Mini-Stamp Holder I created for the Extravaganza used products from our upcoming Holiday Expressions catalog, however, since I couldn’t show those off yet, I chose to use our lovely Documented papers to create another one.  (I know – you were hoping for a sneak peek.) These Mini-Stamp Holders would make a wonderful gift to give to your paper-crafting friends with an M-Size stamp set of your choice, but they also wonderfully designed to hold individual bags of candy. Those individual M&Ms and Skittles that come out in the fall fit perfectly in these. Hmmm..stamps or chocolate? Hard decision. 

If you would like to recreate this Mini-Stamp Holder, you can access the instructions HERE. I only ask that you do not alter or sell these instructions without prior permission. Please feel free to link people to my blog if they wish to also make this fun project. 🙂

I can’t wait to create more projects with this amazing stamp set! You can continue through the blog hop and see more ideas from twenty-eight other Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month’s For the Love of Crafting stamp set and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs. I will be creating more projects throughout the month using this stamp set and our Expressions Two products, so make sure to visit often.
