Day 161: August SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the August SOTM Blog Hop! This month we have over 50 talented CTMH consultants sharing their creations using the August Stamp of the Month. Framed is a versatile set of 12 stamps that includes three frames with coordinating and adorably fonted sentiments for all occasions! You may be arriving here from JEAN'S BLOG.  Let's hop!
I usually use the SOTM images in lots of cards, but this month I was making a demo board, so I wanted to make a 12 x 12 layout. I loved this Sketchy Saturday sketch from Paper Issues, and it was perfect for the pictures I had in mind.  On Father's Day I took all the boys out for Blueberry pancakes, letting my sweet hubby sleep in restful silence. I cut the big Slate CS shape, and the title using the newly released CTMH Artistry Cartridge. You'll see a lot of Artistry from me this month - it's like Art Philosophy part 2, full of fresh designs and a sweet new font! The center band is embossed with the Dots folder and heavily sanded before I stitched over the top and around the edges of the layout repeatedly. 
I stamped the background repeatedly with the Happy Father's Day sentiment using the colors from the new Zoe paper packet.  I filled in a few blank spaces with the heart from Doodled Designs. I added a label from the SOTM (cut with Artistry). I added a liberal dose of white enamel stars.

You can get your own August SOTM for as little as $5, but only in the month of August. Check with your CTMH Consultant or CLICK HERE for more details. Next up on the hop is KAMI'S BLOG. Have fun hopping!
