I love the March Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1503 “Choose Happy”. I chose to focus on having an “attitude of gratitude” for 2015 – being thankful for all I have. A byproduct of this choice is being happy. In a way, my goal for 2015, is being happy. While I love all the traditional possibilities for this stamp set, I was inspired by Karen Pederson (a fellow CTMH consultant) and her take on this stamp set. She created a card featuring using one of the border stamps as the base of a caterpillar! Free hand the rest and “The Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle is born. I have so many friends who teach preschooler or work with them, I had to recreate this!!
I hand drew his face face and legs. Used our Shin Han Touch Markers to color him in. I just love how they blend with each other!! I loved it so much, I created a few more. Check back and see later!
Here are the images for the set. There are 14 images. Frames are whimsical and speak to Spring and Summer (and after the last 3 weeks of cold, I’m all for this). The sayings are great – you’ll use them forever! Here’s a layout from CTMH showcasing this set:
You can purchase this set for $17.95 or with a $50.00 order, you can get this set for $5.00. A $50.00 will also get you a FREE set of sequins from moi! Don’t order them though! After you place your order, I’ll be mailing them to you!
