Chocolate Lovers Unite! August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our first blog hop with the new Autumn/Winter catalog! In addition to Chocolate Affair, our fun stamp of the month set, you're sure to see lots of other new things today along the way. If you're here from Mary Eisen's blog, or if you're just starting out, you're in the right place.  When we're done here, you can hop along to Traci Godbee's blog and see what awesome project she made for us this month.

If you love chocolate (and who doesn't?!), then this set of 16 stamps is for you! And this month, it's yours for just the cost of tax & shipping when you spend $50 - awesome, right? And of course, as always, you can purchase it on it's own at full price ($17.95).

I decided to make this fun title page for our 2004 scrapbook (yes, I DO have pictures that old unscrapped). These were the perfect stamps to use with these cute pics of our little girlies enjoying some chocolate cake together. The papers were leftovers from the Laughing Lola card kit (see it here tomorrow), except the extra sheet of Crystal Blue I used as a base.

I made these little embellishments, cutting out the stamped goodies and popping them up on circles with the coordinating saying. I then also popped the circles up off the page.

I stamped on several strips of leftover cardstock from the card kit, using the hostess exclusive stamp set Washi Wonder, with the inks used to make the card kit cards, plus Cotton Candy.  I also added strips of real Washi Tape and silver Shimmer Trim.  I also used the cardstock leftovers to journal, and stamped & cut out the title year, using the new Framework alphabet stamps.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! I'd love to hear your comments, then let's head over and see what Traci Godbee made to inspire us this month.
