September Stamp of the Month "Here For The Memories"

 Welcome to the Australasian CTMH stamp of the month blog hop, if you arrived here from Doreen's blog  you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance I hope you like what you see and you can contnue the hop by clicking on the link at the end of this post.

This stamp set is all about preserving our special memories in our albums, the sentiments are so apt for our many varied themed layouts.

This layout is all about what life was like for my niece and her daughter during lockdown because of the COVID 19 pandemic. Life changed quite drastically for them, they live in Florida USA and when the schools, shops, churches and places of entertainment shut, they had to stay put in their condominium and get on with life as best they could. This meant home schooling, lots of arts and craft time and even indoor Hop Scotch played on the lounge room tiled floor.

This stamp set is not really one for making cards with but I thought I would give it a go and came up with this idea. It's a bit of fun and whimsy and I also used some of the older stamp sets. I used the stamp that looks like a polaroid photo and says "say cheese" I cut out the stamped image so it looks like a frame removing the inner bit. I then added the cute animals in the frames and used different stamp sets to create the sentiment. 

I usually spend Mothers Day with my sister, her family, my mum and my brother. We have a picnic at the Peel Winery but this year was very different. It was just my sister, my brother and I visiting mum at home for afternoon tea. These lovely papers are from one of the new Mix In Paper Packs X9019

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have been inspired by my projects, to see more great ideas hop along to Lauren Moore's blog I am sure she has something great to share.

  1. Great layouts Doris. I love the way you have woven the stamps into the design so seamlessly. That card is super cute too - the little animals in the Polaroid frames are a fab idea.
