November Stamp of the Month - Cherish the Day

It is Fall, truly Fall,the leaves are changing, the weather is cold, and I love the smell of all the cinnamon, pumkin, and spice. And what could be spicier then the Stamp of the Month blog hop.

November's Stamp of the Month, Cherish the Day, is a calendar inspired stamp set of 44 images. I love calendar stamp sets and this one is awesome.

If you have come from Nancy'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 a complete list of participating consultants here.

As usual, I begin to fill my space with the parts I think I want to use.

My creation is special to me as Zeke, my newest grand, is the center of the project. I love mini albums and this stamp set will work great for his 2nd year mini album.

I started with Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge tag (2 sizes) and ticket images. Stamping with Chocolat ink, I stamped each ticket with the each month from the Cherish the Day stamp set. I sponged the ticket with Chocolate to add some color and depth.

The Dreamin' Workshop on the Go inspired me and I used the few leftovers and the color scheme of Chocolate and Pacifica.

I printed Zeke's pictures onto Colonial White cardstock for a matte finish. I attached the photos to a stamped background tag, attached a stamped ticket and a smaller stamped tag for journaling.

Each page will hold a photo and memory for the month.

The Dreamin' paper packet leftovers worked great for creating a front and back cover. I took a small piece of chipboard (thin) and cut a tag, attached the pattern paper giving the front and back covers a little more stability.

Isn't he a cutie.

I hope you have enjoyed my little creation and would love to hear what you think.

May you have a wonderful November and upcoming holidays.

Continue hopping by visiting the next blog in the hop, Brae's. Don't forget the Stamp of the Month will only be available for November. Contact your consultant or go here to order yours before it's too late.
