Happy New Year!!!

I am hoping that the New Year found you all Happy, Healthy, and Blessed! 2011 was a good year and 2012 will be even better.

We recently released the December/January Issue of Scraps of Color. It is full of wonderful Holiday ideas. The products that we spotlighted were so awesome, that I decided to use them for this blog post as well. My calendar below was created with 2 Heartfelt Creations stamps sets; A Cheery Kind of Day & Life is Good and a coordinating Cardinal die from the Cardinal Family die set. I created this calendar as a great start to the New Year.

2012 Coaster Calendar by Karen Jiles. Supplies- Stamps and Die: Heartfelt Creations; Cardstock and Metal Hinges: CTMH; Ink: Copic, Memento; Stickles: Ranger.

Handmade Calendars make wonderful pre and post Holiday gifts and are great additions to any craft room.

Tip: 3D- opportunities are always present when creating with Heartfelt stamps and coordinating dies. Continue the 3-D throughout your design by stapling your calendar together and popping it on your coaster base with 3-D tape. This allows you or the recipient to easily change the calendars out from year to year without damaging the base.

Wishing you all a Fabulous Year!!!
