Hello again! Welcome back to Day 3 of sneak peeks for the February release at My Craft Spot! Today we got to play with a new stamp set called Scrapping Life - Calendar Stamp set and the coordinating die set we also used yesterday called Scrapping Life Cards Metal Dies. These would be awesome for Project Life or other scrapbook pages, but I decided to use these to make something to help me remember all the family birthday's I always seem to forget!
I cut the cards with PTI cardstock, then cut the top out of MME pattern paper to adhere to the top. Stamped the calendar and all the dates at the bottom (that was a LOT of stamping - that's why I didn't finish the whole year at once - I will work on those again!) I used the smaller sized Straight Banner Dies to stamp the months on, then adhere them flat so they fit on the cards right.
See that nifty circle? That is part of the stamp set too! I used it to circle all the birthday's (that I could remember!) in each month, then I am going to write whose birthday is on that day on the back of them. I made the dates to fit this year - but I plan on keeping these for many years as a reference, and adding to them as new nieces and nephews are born - so it was definitely worth the time and effort!
Now the fun stuff! This week is a party - and a party is so much more fun when you have gifts, right? So hop on over to My Craft Spot and let Kimberly know what you think of the today's sneak peeks for a chance to win these fun sequins:
See you back here again tomorrow for more sneak peeks! Have a great day!!!
