All stamped images are from Fun 'n' Flair stamp sets including
Miss Shayla at Christmas Time Stamp Set
Penguin Christmas Stamp Set
Snow Many Wishes Stamp Set
Each set is LOADED with stamps, absolutely perfect for the holidays!
I started with foam board and cut it to the size I needed. I wanted to be sure I had enough room for stamped images and embellishments. Next I attached strips of wide ribbon that the squares are adhered to. I used different holiday patterned paper along with cardstock for each day. Each square that contains a stamped image or sentiment is a stamp from one of the three sets listed above. I used different sized numbers with different fonts for my countdown numbers. I also embellished with ribbon, die cuts, stickers, buttons, pearls, glitter, fabric... My calendar is whimsical, bright and very jolly - my kids can't wait to start to use it! Perfect for the Christmas countdown! The hardest part for me was getting a good picture since the natural light was gloomy, it was raining and gloomy. But I think this one is blog worthy!!!
