SASI--A Year of Sweets!

Good evening! We are back in Colorado and it is definitely a feeling of relief! We arrived home around 2 a.m. and slept until 11 a.m.! Haha! Well, I am FINALLY able to share some brand new creations! What better way to start than by showcasing some sneak peeks of the adorable Stamp a Sweet Impression stamps??? Anyway, since I was in Iowa the past two weeks and didn't have my new stamps (they were waiting here for me on my doorstep) I had to get everything done today. Let me tell you how stressful that can feel! I absolutely hate being behind! Well Taylor has certainly outdone herself with this new release! Not only is she releasing 5 fantastic sets, she is also releasing the new Valentines Key Ingredients kit, a new (fabulous) card stock, AND two different types of calenders! You can choose from a "Frame Your Imagination" vertical stand like the one I will be featuring OR a perpetual calendar! Isn't that awesome??? The release will be January 2nd so don't miss it!

Anyway, along with the vertical calender stand, the stamp set that I will be showing you today is called "A Year of Sweets 3"! My set has an image for September, October, November, and December. There are two other sets featuring the other 8 months as well and you can view those on the rest of the dt blogs! I didn't have time to create a calendar for all 12 months (yet) so I will continue to show you my progress over the next month. I am excited to see it all finished! I began by having my wonderful little brother spray paint the stand white. (I hope to decorate it in the near future.) I then started working on the pages. The two months that I did decide to finish were October (my bday month) and November! I honestly have no idea why I went with the Baja Breeze ribbon for October. I just thought the color looked nice I guess! Haha! The November ribbon was a no brainer. Anyway, I watercolored my images using my Crayola pencils and OMS. I then attatched my images to the calendar with magnets so that I can switch it out next year (just in case I don't have time to do this again)!

Well, that does it for today's sneak peek! Come back tomorrow for a peek at another adorable set! Make sure you remember to stop by Taylor's blog as well as the rest of the dt! They have all done a fantastic job of showcasing this new release!
