Year Round Cheer!

If you are looking for Emily's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop, please click here.

Welcome to our December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This is our last Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for the year. Can you believe it's December already?

This month Close to My Heart is offering a stamp set called "Year-Round Cheer" throughout the month of December.  This versatile set can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant for only $5 with a qualifying purchase of $50.  (That’s a $17.95 value!)
This is truly a versatile set that you will be using all year round for many different projects and holidays.


In this hop, you will see projects featuring this fun stamp set from many talented crafty ladies!  Enjoy  our blog hop.

I decided to make a mini calendar using this versatile stamp set soooo, you will see each image from the set in my project!  

I used a coaster measuring approximately 4" x 6".  I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut the squares and rectangles as well as the "BOO!" sentiment.

The mini calendar tears off month by month and the coordinating month image can be flipped over or just moved to the back of the pack.  The mini calendar can be replaced from year to year.  I have also placed a magnet on the back of the coaster so that I can have this on my refrigerator.  What do you think?
