January Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop - Little Reminder

Hopping into a New Year and another great Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

You should be coming from Lisa's Blog if not, keep hopping and you will do a complete circle!

This month's stamp set is called Little Reminders - Very Cute!


Remember, that red circle around the stamps works with our Cricut Cartridge!

I did a layout this month and used this stamp set to note the date of the event:
The Left side above and the Right side below - I used Believe Paper Pack.
 I put the numbers inside of the circle stamp.  I used a period from a font set to make the December have a red circle on it. The "6" is circled with a stamp from another shape set - you can do it with a pen or marker, but when I did it the first time, I didn't like it.
 Here's a close up. The Year is also from this stamp set - love the fun shapes of the numbers.
 I used our matching Stickease to add rain deer and elves to the layout.  
I took red embroidery floss to link the deer.  I glued the floss down using Glitter Glue

These presents were fun to do.  They are from the Believe Workshop on the Go Stamp Set.  I stamped the outline of the ribbon and the present in Stazon Black Ink, then I stamped the center of the ribbon and the bow with Crystal Blue Ink - they are all separate stamps (4 total). I took my Holiday Red Marker and colored in the body of the presents - super easy and fast!
Here is another Stickease elf that I placed half onto the photo.
Ok, that layout with this stamp set was too easy, so I decided to make a card too:

 Here is the front of the card above.  I stamped 19 for the date.
January 19th is my Niece's Birthday so I'm ahead of the game this year!
Over achiever! (There's a Sparkle under JAN to add attention to the circle.)
The double circle is from a cool Pendant Stamp Set - let's play a game - what's the stamp set? 
Leave a comment with your guess.
 Inside on a separate piece of paper that we attached, my 5 year old daughter made the cupcake card with another stamp set we have.  She signed it and put I "heart" U all over it too.
 Over the 19, I put "let's celebrate" stamp in Pansy Purple Ink - creating my own patterned paper.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment!

Now hop over to Tamytha's blog to see more great things you can do with this stamp set!


  1. Great layout and card! Happy 2012!

  2. Both of your projects are great. Love the extra touches with the reindeer.
    I'm not sure which stamp set you used, but I like how you used it to highlight the date with the added bling.

  3. I am very sure Michelle will love your card. Happy New Year to you and your family, especially your sister. lol

  4. Okay, this was a showstopper for me because I'm trying to remember what set the double circle is from. It seems to me it was around the time Emporium came out. Anyway, I love what you did with the set!!

  5. Love both your projects. What a great use of the stamp set on your card!

  6. Mary, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog post. I really like your layout. So adorable!

  7. Cute layout! I'm looking forward to using that paper packet...thanks for the ideas.
