April SOTM - Flowerpot

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Flowerpot is a very cute flowery set!

If you have come here from Wanda Riley's Blog you got a taste of the talent represented! We have over sixty Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products. It is simple to hop along - just click on the link at the end of the post to move to the next one!

Here is what I made this month.

The paper is from Veranda Collection. I made the flower using the instructions I posted last month but started with paper flowers.  They poof right up!  Only had 5 flowers to create this many layered flower.  I decided to go retro and did some blocking and masking.  Since I'm not the biggest flower girl (although you wouldn't know it by looking at my blog lately!) I decided to take a twist on the flowery set and make hats out of the flower pots.  Each flower center is offset with sparkles.

Here is a detail shot of the flower (check out the March SOTM post to see the instructions)
Remember, the April SOTM is only available until April 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

A Recipe Layout

Here is a recipe card layout that my class worked on last week
( 8.5" x 11" size).  The flower is following my previous post instructions. 

Here is the layout with the recipe card propped up!  The second part of the instruction is under the main card.

The paper is no longer offered, but I always did like this package.  Even though I'm not a pink girlie kind of scrapper - this pretty much covers the girlie rhelm - flowers, butterflies and pink!
