Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop! This month's set is called Jubilation! This set of twenty-Four (24) stamps is a fun set for the whole year!

If you have come here from Dawn Ross' Blog you have seen some of the great work from our CTMH consultants! We have over fifty Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, using the Sensational SOTM and other great CTMH products.

It is simple to follow our blog hop - just click on the link at the end of the post to move to the next one!

Here is what I made this month:

I used colonial white cardstock for the base and Outdoor denim cardstock for the scallop punch base.  The accordian fold flowers are B&T scraps from the same pattern from the  Lucky paper pack.  The difference between the accordian folds is 1/4 inch.  The left hand flower is 1/4" folds and the right hand flower is 1/2" folds.  I wanted to show how two stamps can create cute 4th of July cards.  I flipped one of the circular sayings over to stamp a light red background and then stamped Celebrate on top of the red background.
Here is a detail shot:
Here is a Scrapbook layout I made to start cataloging my son's Spring Break trip to Ireland.  There is one set of shamrock papers in the layout which is not CTMH but I couldn't resist the variety of greens and clovers.  I used the four leaf clover from this month's SOTM set and the celebrate stamp to over stamp the clovers. 
Here are some detail shots:

This layout has the waterfall technique and shows off a series of 7 small photos along with a 2" x 4" photo, once the slider is pulled out.  I also used a scrap of B&T golf paper that says "Who's your Caddy?" for the fully extended pull tab.  Love multiple pictures (eleven on this page and that includes one 5 x 5 photo!) and I'm all about interactive scrapbooking.

Remember, the June SOTM is only available until June 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!
