December Stamp of the Month blog hop


Wow... Thanksgiving is already over- I hope yours was a great one! Now that December is upon us it was time to tackle another Stamp of the Month. December's set is called Notice the Details and has 41 stamps!!! My first thoughts on this set is that it would be great for scrapbooking... but I have not had time to scrapbook so I had to come up with something else.

Those of you that know me personally know that I am a scientist... I work in a research lab by day and dabble with stamping and scrapbooking whenever I can sneak away to the basement at night. When I'm working at my lab bench... I often think of things I know I'll forget if I don't write them down... whether it's a list of supplies to order for work, the steps of an experiment I just set up that need to be recorded in my lab notebook... or sometimes- a card design that popped into my head- lol...


I always keep pads of paper at my bench and I used to always buy the seasonal ones at the dollar store- just for something fun. For this month's blog hop- I used a couple of stamps from the Notice the Details set along with some snowflakes from another stamp set (Holiday Trinkets) to design my own pad of paper for my lab bench at work.


The "Important to Remember" and date box are stamped in black and the snowflakes are first and second generation Crystal Blue and Twilight- leaving the writing area light enough to be able to read what you write.


You could also turn this into a kitchen tablet by adding a magnet to the back and sticking it to your fridge.


Hope you enjoyed my quick peak at December's stamp of the month.


The next blog on the hop is: Krista Ritskes - go check out the artwork she's showing off!

Reminds me of our lab notebooks - with dates on each page....hmmmm, this stamp set is just the thing for doing that!
