December SOTM Blog Hop!


Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's SOTM, which is called Year Round Cheer, a down right adorable set of 12 stamps.  THIS is my favorite SOTM from this catalog for sure! If you have come here from LAURIE'S BLOG, you are on the right path!

This month we have almost 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM (and other great CTMH products) on their blogs. Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This month I created an adorable erasable Event Calendar to track all those birthdays and celebratory events. I make a gob of cards every month, but it's like the shoemaker's workshop around here. I have some kind of phobia about getting to the post office and I always mail things late. I want to do a better job of caring (and sharing a bit of art) with all my favorite peeps in 2013, and this event calendar is going to help me do it! I used our awesome new Display tray to make my event calendar, because for me, if something isn't out in the open, I just forget about it. Now all the birthdays will be on display by my desk and Dry Erase To Do list!

I stamped each month with the coordinating stamp image. Each month is embellished with sparkly Shimmer Trim flags and the month (stamped with the November SOTM, Capture the Date), plus lots of Silver Glitter Glitz. I layered some overhead transparency film over each month so I can use a wet erase pen to write on the birthdays. I like that better than dry erase for something where I really want to be sure I don't accidentally erase anything, but still want the option of erasing. Dry erase would work as well, of course.

I attached my event calendar months with velcro, inspired by my upline, Ginni Candelaria. That way if I ever want to update or change out my Display Tray I can do so with ease! That's also why I did not frame my tray with more shimmer trim...even though it fits PERFECTLY around the edges of the tray...

This is a sneak peek of the Volume 4 Stamping Rules Consultant kits! This is going to be such a fun workshop, just the way to start fresh in 2013. Two more projects are coming this month - woo hoo!

I'm linking this to the Heart 2 Heart Glitter It Up Challenge! Tis' the season for GLITTER!

EXCELLENT idea! I love an event calendar, and as you say, better "reminding power" out in the open (where its beautiful, too!). Thanks for joining in the glittery fun at H2H this week.
