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!

  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.

  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!!
