Cherish the Day in November

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring November's SOTM, Cherish the Day, a set of 44 stamps.  If you have come here from TRACI GODBEE'S BLOG you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.  

This month we have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. Following the blog hop is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

For a long time I wanted to create a Event Calendar. I've got so many birthday's to keep up with, I kept losing track of who's birthday was when!  I think I sent someone even got a Birthday card two months in a row!  Several months ago I ordered our Event Calendar (Z126) but never got around to decorating the pages.   Each page has a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 square that you create something for.  There are only 12 so how hard can it be?!   I'd sit down to start it and just get stumped!  When I saw the November stamp of the month, I decided that I would use that stamp and my scraps!  You will see on each page I used a shape from our Art Philosophy cartridge.

To the left is the January page.   Each page is numbered with the number of days and I'll just write in the dates to remember on the appropriate line.  This calendar can be used year after year.  

Following are pictures of each month before I adhered them to the pages.  
Jan - April
May - August

September - December
This was a fun way to use some scraps and also to try out the different shapes on the Art Philosophy cartridge!  Remember, you can ONLY get it during the Month of November!  It is just $5.00 when you purchase $50 in Close To My Heart Products  That is a great discount off of the retail price of $17.95.   Contact me to order yours today!    Be sure to check out the November Special too for another great $5 stamp!  

Now keep on Hoppin' and see more great artwork from our Close To My Heart Consultants'.  Continue on to Debra Van Patten's Blog to see what she has created for you!
