Stamping Technique and Another Blessing

Creating your own backgrounds with the November Stamp of the Month.  Keep reading to find out how.
I have decided that every time I post in November I will mention something I am grateful for. If I posted every day, I'm sure I would have more than enough blessings to talk about, but I probably won't be posting every day. I do promise that in every post this month, you'll see something I am very grateful for.

Yesterday, as you saw, it was our beautiful children I focused on.  Today, I gotta tell ya, my hubby is the bomb. I am grateful to have a husband that loves me in spite of my faults, who is a devoted to me, is a devoted daddy and grandpa, and is devoted to his Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ.  Plus, he's cute and cuddly! At 6'4" and incredible Hulk status, I tell him all the time that the only reason I married him is that no matter how big I get, or how pregnant I ever was, I would always look little next to him. It was a good plan because I seem to be growing these days, and I don't mean growing taller. Ha! Seriously, that is not why I married him, but I must admit that it is a bonus!

I also thought I'd share a fun stamping technique today (see photo at the top of this post). In yesterday's post you saw a layout in which I created a random numbered background by mixing many of the numbers in the November Stamp of the Month* (Capture the Date).  Want to know how I did it so that they were spaced so beautifully?  You'll be happy to know it's easy, peasy, lemon squeasy!  To achieve this look with any collection of stamps, you just need a large block.  I suggest our 4" x 5" block.  Adhere your stamps to the block in the pattern you'd like and then stamp away.  You may even want to turn your block different directions to get an even more random look. You can achieve some really fun looks this way. Have fun trying it!

Here's the layout again:

 And, here's the Stamp of the Month set:

November Stamp of the Month (Capture the Date)

*Don't forget this set is available during November only. You can purchase it for full price ($17.95) or get it for only $5 with a $50 order. On top of that, if you do that you also can choose any other stamp set in the catalog for 1/2 off. And, if that weren't enough, for every time you take advantage of this special, Close To My Heart will donate $1 to help with the Red Cross relief efforts with Hurricane Sandy. Cool beans!
