Ink, Stamp, Share December blog hop - Sneak peek!

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Today I am bringing you my contribution to the Ink, Stamp, Share December blog hop. We are a day early this month - for obvious reasons!

Our theme for this month is "Sneak Peeks" - a chance to give you a glimpse of the exciting new goodies coming in January in the new mini catalogue. I am today showcasing a new stamp set called "Sentimental Swirls" and featuring it on the July page of my Create a Calendar 2022.

This set is so versatile - it has so many little images that can be used in so many different ways. It was designed by my upline - Sam Hammond Donald - who achieved her million sales target back in 2019. 

And the other great feature of this set is that two of the flowers and a leaf coordinate with a couple of punches already in the catalogue - the Strawberry Builder Punch and the Flowers and Leaves Punch.

If you've missed the previous episodes in my Create a Calendar series, please do have a look back through my blog to see them. The last 5 months will be coming up in the coming week.

I've recorded a video to show how I made this. To see my video you can watch by CLICKING HERE or on the image below. 


All the other videos in the series are in a playlist on my channel - please do take a look.

Meanwhile keep on hopping around to see what inspiration everyone else has for you. Next up is Tricia Butts
