Tutti Fruitti SOTM Blog Hop...

Welcome to AUGUST (that came quick, didn't it!?!?!)!!! I'm excited for several reasons but the first is because it's time for a NEW SOTM from Close to my Heart and this one is ADORABLE!!!

As always, I'm joining some other CTMH Makers in bringing you a Blog Hop featuring Tutti Fruitti (don't you just LOVE the name). If you're coming from Haley's Blog, you're on the right track...keep on hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME! 

I immediately knew that ONE of the purposes for this stamp set would be to decorate the August monthly page in my planner! We have several things going on in August which play along really well with the Tutti Fruitti Stamp of the Month!

Here's a look...can you see all the places I used the SOTM?

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget that this EXCLUSIVE stamp set is only available during the month of August and can be yours FREE if you're one of my VIPs or for as little as $5 with a qualifying purchase. You can check out all the details {{{HERE}}}

Now, head on over to My Heartfelt Sentiments to see what my very good friend and upline, Melissa, has to share!

Christmas in July Blog Hop...

Thank you for stopping by for this month's Christmas in July Blog Hop featuring a whole bunch of things CHRISTMAS related!

It's a short hop with only ___ Makers participating so it won't take you long to hop all the way through. If you're coming from the very eye-pleasing Becca-Expression's Blog, you're the right track...keep on hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME! 

Let's take a look at a somewhat simple card I made using the Bring Back My Pack - White Pines stamp set Miracle of Christmas and our Tri-Blend Markers...

I used a technique called no-line coloring which is where you use a lighter color ink color...for instance NOT BLACK...that will blend into the image when you're done coloring. For this card I used Toffee ink...

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to head on over to Krista's Crafty Corner and see what she has to share!
for a complete list of blogs, head on over to Melinda's Blog

I made a super novice coloring video to show you how I color with our Tri-Blend Markers but most of it was out of screen since I tried to do a zoomed-in video. Trying to salvage it - if I can't then I will try and remake it.

I absolutely LOVE when I can use my stash...and ESPECIALLY LOVE when I can couple it with some NEW products from the July-August 2021 Catalog.
