Many of you know that CTMH has a stamp of the month program where you can only order a certain stamp set during each month. The stamp sets are always "D" sized stamp sets meaning they are valued at $22.95; however, depending upon how much you purchase during that month you can get the stamp set 25%, 50%, 75% off or even FREE!
When I get my new Idea Books, the first thing I do is flip to the back two pages and check out the stamps of the month. There are times I am not completely happy with each set. Then there are other times, I love each set. Well, the summer Idea Book is one of those times. I have really liked each set and August is no exception. This set is good for making cards and layouts. I like to put the date somewhere on my layouts, especially if I know the month I took the pictures. This set allows me to do that in fun, creative ways. Check out the FALL layout and you will see what I mean.
I wanted to use the August stamp of the month for our stamp club meeting in August, so the club members get to play with it. Sally suggested I make a front flip card next month, so that is what we are making. Check it out! Each club member will be able to specialize this card to fit the person's birthday they are making it for.
If you want to see how to make one of these cards or refresh you memory on the measurements, here is the tutorial.
