January Stamp of the Month "Every Day Magic"

Welcome to the CTMH Australasian Stamp of the Month blog hop, if you arrived here from  Danielle Edwards Scrappy Chicks you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance I hope you like what you see and you can continue the hop by clicking on the link at the end of this post.

This is a lovely stamp set with wonderful sentiments that will be great with your projects both scrapbooking as well as card making.

I really like how versatile these sentiments are, sometimes I like to encourage my friends to not only remain positive when life becomes more complicated but also to reinforce just how well they are coping with certain situations. With CTMH's acrylic stamps it is easy to add extra words to a stamp to change it slightly. I received the Spruced Up stamp and thin cuts set for Christmas and had great fun using it in this card.

Creating this layout was rather cathartic, seeing Margo and Mia happy and smiling was a real joy after what they endured during Hurricane Dorian. They were able to be evacuated to Florida once the hurricane was over and are still there. There was great devastation and destruction in their home town in the Bahamas and unfortunately little has changed in the past three months.

My final project is another card that was fun and easy to make. I really do think butterflies are some of the most beautiful creatures. I just love them both in real life as well as a stamped image. We all need to be reminded to be ourselves and not a copy of someone else as we are all so unique. This combination of colours are so pretty. I have used Eggplant and Sugarplum inks for the butterflies and black for the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by, to get more ideas hop along to Lauren Moore's blog  and see what great project she has created.
