Hello, friends! Welcome to Day 3 of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party! This week we are providing sneak peeks of FIVE new stamp sets and THREE new metal die sets, all available to purchase on Saturday! Weren't the first two days amazing?! I love this release with all of my sparkly heart. :o)
Today we are featuring the Scrapping Life- Calendar stamp set, which coordinates with the fantastic goodies from yesterday: Scrapping Life- Everyday stamps and Scrapping Life Cards metal dies! As with the entire new release, the versatility this set offers is outstanding.
For my project today, I created something for a sweet little boy who is currently hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica. He is one of the recipients for this month's I Feel the Love Project. Initially I was stumped! So I gathered all of this week's new release goodies and went through them once again... and a delightful combination emerged! I knew exactly how to use this calendar stamp for him:
A fun little wall hanging calendar for his hospital room, paired with sentiments to tell him that he is loved every day... by me and so many. :o) (And every tiny love bug that holds it in place.)
Isn't the calendar stamp marvelous? I cut it out with one of the Scrapping Life Cards dies. :o) The sweet giraffes are cut files from Little Scraps of Heaven. For extra texture, I used Brown Jute String from My Craft Spot for their manes and tails. "I love you" is from the new Big Sentiments 2 stamp set. I used the masking technique to separate "every" and "day," which is on the Scrapping Life- Everyday set.
I chose papers that were all outdoorsy in theme, including the Lilybee wooden paper with hearts that I've been saving. The perfect occasion finally came! The ladybug clothespin is adhered with hot glue, enabling him to easily change out the months. I'm mailing it out with March attached, as that is when he will receive it.
You didn't think I'd only send him ten months, did you? Not a chance... it gave me the opportunity to show him that he's been dearly loved every day this year. Instead of 'checks' to cross off each day of January and February, I made sparkly red hearts:
There are so many options with this fun set, as you'll see if you head on over to My Craft Spot to check out what the team has created! While there, leave a comment on Kimberly's post for a chance to win today's daily prize: Sequins in Tickled Pink, Lemon Meringue, and Toadally Green! So fun!
