Home for the Holidays: CTMH October Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop




Hello and welcome aboard our CTMH October Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Vandra's Virtual CTMH Craftroom, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 


Today I would like to share with you these Christmas greeting cards which feature the October Stamp of the Month 'Home for the Holidays'  which is available exclusively throughout October 2014 for $27, or for just $5 when you spend $75. This stamp set is the latest of 12 glorious, exclusive Stamp of the Month stamp sets featured in our brand new CTMH 2014- 2015 Annual Inspirations Idea Book!






This month I decided to have fun with the October Stamp of the Month 'Home for the Holidays' and a couple of the card designs from the Workshop on the Go Snowhaven Cardmaking Kit.  I just love that we can use the layouts and cutting guides provided in Workshops on the Go Kits to inspire card and scrapbooking projects using different papers, Cardstock and stamps and still get a brilliant result every time!
