THIS MOMENT - January 2015 Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop

Happy New Year and welcome to the Rose Blossoms Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop. This is a very exciting adventure. The Rose Blossoms are planning to Blog Hop our way through 2015 with a whole variety of fun things, but one thing you can count on is a SOTM hop on the first of every month.

If you came from Created by Barbara then I'm sure you've already seen something wonderful to inspire you. After you see my artwork make sure to hop on through all the blogs by clicking on the links at the end until you make the full circle. Beware ... you are going to want this stamp set by the time you're done!! LOL!

Have you seen this awesome set yet? Here it is ... a dozen different stamps that you can use for Valentine's Day and beyond. This is only $5 with a $50 purchase. Woo Hoo, you gotta love that!!

Normally I would try to show you how to take this beyond Valentine's Day (because you can) BUT I've been creating like crazy with this paper ...

... and there's no end in sight!! It's called Heartstrings and it certainly has ahold of mine. So ... I went all out with a Valentine's Page for someone you adore.

What do you think? There are seven of the twelve stamps used here. It's like a treasure hunt!!

Here are just a few close ups. Did you see the word "true" on the picture frame? It's OK to only use a portion of a stamp if you don't need the whole thing in the moment. This is just the perfect accent with the swirly title.  I really can't wait to put a cozy photo of my hubby and I on this page.

There's MORE ... but you will have to stay tuned for future blog posts. I am creating a layout extraordinaire here. It looks like a single page today but there will be so much more when I'm finished. I plan to use this journaling block on the other page.

The best news is that you will be able to add this layout to your collection as part of January's Scrapbooking Take Out Kit. It's only one portion of something spectacular. You will have to come back in a few days to see the whole flip flappy layout.

NOW it's time for you to hop over to Kim Hill's Beautiful Blog for more awesome artwork.
