Here's what I have been working on in the stamp room.
I "uncovered" these calendars during my last craft table clean up. I purchased them a few months ago and I am sure I had a fantastic plan for them. Since I could not remember what the original plan was (does this happen to anyone else?) I decided they would make great refrigerator magnets. They aren't going to make it on time for Thanksgiving but it is still way early for 2012 so really I am ahead of schedule. How's that for some twisted logic?
I was going to use some pre-cut chipboard squares but I thought it would be so much easier to make my own chipboard coasters. How is that easier you ask? I used the Clear Circle Big Shot die and cut out circles from thick chipboard( On Board chipboards sheets). I also used the die to cut out the magnet sheet, the Desiger Series Paper, and the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive sheets. This made assembling the base very easy, no measuring, no sanding everything just fit. Love it! If I was really thinking I would have used my Big Shot to cut out the little banner and the flowers too but unfortunately I was not that efficient but maybe next time.
Here are the supplies I used:
Stamps: Sweetly Said
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Spice Cake DSP and Very Vanilla
Big Shot: Clear Circle die, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, Magnet Sheets, On Board Sheets
Punches: Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, Boho Blossoms, Bird Builder
Extras: Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Basic Pearls, purchased calendar
