Welcome to the May Blog Hop featuring "Cherish the Moment"

Welcome again to another creative and fun CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

I hope you all had the chance to check out the blog hop a couple of days ago featuring all of our new products set to go "live" to our customers tomorrow! If you haven't checked it out yet, scroll down and you can start at my site and just keep clicking the links to see what our talented consultants showcased.


This month we feature a fun and very versatile stamp set, "Cherish the Moment." If you have arrived here from Laurie's Blog, you are on the right track, if you just happened by, just click on the link at the bottom of my post and "hop" on....


I have been dreaming of making a humongous calendar for my studio and am getting closer all the time. My husband mounted a large sheet of flashing found at Home Depot and I can attach anything with magnets that my little heart desires. While it is still a work in progress, here is what I have so far...




As you can see, I am still missing some numbers and am planning on covering the plastic ones I have with CS to make everything blend better.

Here is a close up of my creations for this time...



I created each coaster "date marker" with a different paper pack from the new Summer Idea Book. I also used a different stamp from the May SOTM set "Cherish the Moment" on each one. Also used to name a few are NEW sparkles that go with the NEW "Cherry O" paper pack. NEW star Dimensional Elements, NEW velvet ribbon that is included in the "Cherry O" Creative Basics kit and also some cut out gold embossed "keys" from an upcoming SOTM set.



You might be saying this is a lot of work for a creative coaster to be used once and then discarded? Well, I cherish the time I get to spend creating, so what I did to make the coasters re-usable for different events, I attached the stamped image with event specific info to the coaster art with velcro, so I just need to remove the dated image (to use on a scrapbook page) and then stamp myself a new one with the new information. Easy, Easy and you only create once and use again and again....I LOVE acrylix stamps!!!

Well, thanks for stopping by and I am going to send you on to our next creative genius, Laura Dame. Thanks for stopping by and be on the lookout for new pics of my ever evolving "creative calendar!"
