ScrapLovers December Reveal

Creative Cafe has an entire year worth of stamps that work with the calendar shown on this project. Including, the calendar template stamp. I thought making a calendar with this circle magnetic memo board would be a great gift idea.
I started with the new Hello, Beautiful papers from Webster's Pages. Gorgeous colors, lots of cutting possibilities. I also adhered lace (inked) to the back of the board and some fabulous trim from May Arts down each side of the red polka dot paper.

I stamped the month with brown ink and added some snowflakes. The snowflakes got accented with my Spica Glitter pen.
The calendar was stamped the same way. The stamp is very large. My DH had a brilliant idea to use a brand new Cuttlebug B plate to hold the stamp. Isn't he the best?! It worked perfectly. The stamp took a bit of playing with to get it all (relatively) straight. These stamps are also incredibly soft, so literally no pressure needs to be applied, a simple kiss to the paper will work.

The calendar and the month title are both backed with magnets. That way, the month can be changed as needed.
This snowflake is also a magnet. A Maya Road chipboard snowflake was painted white and then distressed. A coat of Stickles was added for shine. A hole was punched in the middle of the snowflake. I tied twine around the 7 gypsies brad and adhered them to the snowflake. The magnet was adhered to the prongs of the brad with some serious glue! :)
