August SOTM BlogHop: A Chocolate Affair

Here's something that will make your summer just a little sweeter! The brand new Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book from Close to My Heart and a Stamp of the Month set filled with scrumptious chocolate treats...that won't go straight to your hips!

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month BlogHop! This month we have close to 60 consultants ready to share their creativity with YOU! If you've arrived here from Allisa Chilton's blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, following along is simple. Just click the link to the next blog at the bottom of each post. By the time you arrive back here you are sure to be inspired (and quite possibly craving a little chocolate fix)!

A Chocolate Affair (S1308) is a delightfully delicious set of 16 stamps...8 delectable chocolate treats and 8 fun sentiments!
A Chocolate Affair pairs perfectly with the BRAND NEW Babycakes My Reflections Paper Packet. Don't let the name fool you...Babycakes is so much more than babies. The subdued color pallette of Slate, Buttercup, Chocolate and Sunset can easily coordinate with additional colors...I chose to add a pop of Cotton Candy.

The card pattern is from our new how-to book, Make It From Your Heart, Volume 2. It features 16 two-page layout patterns, 2 single-page patterns and 12 different card patterns. At just $7.95, this idea book is a great value!
The August Stamp of the Month is only available through August...and this month the deal is sweeter than ever! You can order A Chocolate Affair for $17.95, or get it absolutely FREE when you place a $50 order before August 30th! Head on over to my website to order yours today!
It's time to hop along and see what Judy Burger has created to share with all of us! Enjoy!
