Thriller - Close To My Heart's September Stamp of the Month

As you know, with a new month comes a new CTMH Stamp of the Month. This month's (Thriller - D1442) is the perfect complement to any Halloween card or layout. I have had so much fun creating with this set.

The image you see of the stamp set is of the carrier sheet the stamps come on. The actual size of that sheet is 6" x 6".

I know I have shown you this 12" x 12" layout before, but I couldn't resist showing it to you again. Not only does it feature the Sept. SOM so prominently, it makes me SMILE! This little 4 year old is now a not-s0-little 16 year old. The cards (2- 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards and one 4 1/2" circle card) are new. Enjoy!

Before I share product lists, I thought I'd share a technique you see featured on the layout and the cards. It's called scissor distressing. Now, don't be 'distressed' at the thought of dulling your wonderfully sharp scissor blades. If you have our GREAT micro-tip scissors (Z534), you have no need to fear. Just keep your scissors CLOSED and run the OUTSIDE EDGE of your scissors up and down the edge of the cardstock you want to be distressed. After I did that, I just sponged a little black ink along the distressed edge. This is a GREAT technique to use on all of the Halloween cards and layouts you'll be making soon.

On to the product lists... Oh, by the way, I bolded any products that are brand new and went live today.
