December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! I know you will enjoy hopping from blog to blog to see the fantastic artwork using this month's Stamp of the Month!










These cards were made with the December Stamp of the Month and Emporium paper. Inks are Twilight and Vineyard Berry. Cards are embellished with Liquid Glass or Chocolate grosgrain ribbon. I enjoyed creating cards with this stamp set.










This next project is my favorite project using this month's SOM. The little binder clips look great over pictures, the date and week stamps were perfect for this layout. I also used the faux tab to create a little book, when opened shows my journaling and another picture of my son.






The last project I made with this set is a pocket calendar. I slipped it out of the protective sleeve to decorate the cover, then slipped it right back in. What a perfect stocking stuffer, don't you think?!




I hope you enjoyed your stop here! Next, hop on over to Tracy Oleksak's blog for more great ideas and inspiration using the December Stamp of the Month! If at any time you get lost on the hop, simply start back here or check out the full list of participants. It's a big circle, so you'll be able to find your way back in no time! :)

Coaster Ornament





This ornament took me about 15 minutes to make and will look perfect on your tree! It is made from one coaster, two four inch circles, one three inch circle, one stamped two inch square, and a piece of ribbon. There is a small adhesive pearl on the star to give it a little shimmer. I can't wait to make more of these with different papers!

Now it's your turn...make a coaster ornament and send me the picture to post on my blog. When you do, you'll get a prize!

Eight Easy Cards!

My friend, Dana Swadling, created the cutting guide and samples to make similar cards shown. With her cutting guide, you will make two of each card design from less than three pieces of paper! If these cards look like something you'd like to make, let me know! We can schedule a workshop at your house with a few friends and make these cards (with any paper you like for any occasion)!
