Mama Elephant December Stampede

You know it's a happy Monday here because I want to welcome you to Mama Elephant's December Stampede! Plus, there's a giveaway! Just comment for a chance to win a Mama Elephant gift certificate. A winner will be announced on Wednesday, 12/5 on the Mama Elephant blog.

If you've come from Mariana Grigsby's blog, you're right on track. If you're lost, start the blog hop at the beginning -- the Mama Elephant blog.

I created a notebook for all my December checklists. Since the holidays are a busy time, I need a little jotter to go everywhere with me for my notes and lists. The stamped cover is made to look like a train ticket with a faux envelope button and loop. To create the tracks, I used the arrows from the On Target stamp set. To create the button and clasp, I used the No Peeking stamp set. And the title was stamped using the Midnight Letters stamp set.

Materials used: Mama Elephant Midnight Letters, On Target, No Peeking; CTMH Inks, twine

A closer look: I love how I can spell anything I want with these awesome Midnight Letters. All you have to do is line your letters up on an acrylic block and the rest is easy. I love the positive and negative letters that can be mixed and matched.

Your next stop is the super talented JJ Bolton. Just in case you're lost, be sure to start at the Mama Elephant blog!
Thanks for stopping by!
