Happy Birthday Stamp Fairy

I bet you are now really wondering what I've been up to that kept me so busy this week. Well finally I did it.. was in fact finishing it this morning! .. I was doing a Desk Calendar for the Stamp Fairy Blog Hop 1st Year Party Celebrations. YES that's right, Stamp Fairy today is One Year Old and to celebrate, Gerda and all the Stampfairies are hosting a blog hop where EVERYONE who completes the hop will win a prize! But that is not all.. .. there is also a 50% sale on all the digis in the store and Gerda has also released two digi sets of Barry and Molly throughout the year WOW!

I decided to use the Barry release for my calendar and so here it is..

I tried not to do my pages bulky.. so just some punched snowflakes and gems on the January page.

A little red bow and a Marianne Creatables flourish die on the next one for February.

I love the March one, always so sweet Barry. 
The flowers are Crea-Lies from Joanna Sheen, an X-Cut butterfly punch and again some gems.

Papers here are Papermania, and again Crea-Lies dies flowers and card candy.

My birthday month. There are actually two papers here but I hid where they join. Butterfly is Spellbinders.

More Crea-Lies die cut flowers, paper is from my DCWV paper pack .. just perfect for June.

Some stars for the 4th of July.. but it's also fireworks in Malta .. lots of village feasts.

August, lots of colours here. The stars are Die-Namics.

Some warm colours now for September...

... and dark ones for October. The background image was a packaging from a Halloween thing I bought.

More recycling here, the paper were all scraps!The flourish is Joy Crafts..

And finally December, a simple layout again and traditional Christmas colours. The poinsettia is  Spellbinders.

A side view of my calendar. ... just how I wanted it, not bulky!

So if you are following the hop you should have arrived here from Chrissy, but if not, and you would like to join us, then you need to start from the beginning at the Stamp Fairy Blog.

Please leave a comment letting us know that you have visited and you also need to collect a letter from each stop. Spell out a short phrase with these and then email to Gerda to get you a really beautiful Stamp Fairy Freebie image. Your next stop on the hop is Sharon and the letter that you need to collect from here is ........

Thank you so much for joining us with the celebrations, the hop ends on the 31st of December. Don't forget the 50% off Sale at the store if you would like to get some new digis.


These are the releases that Gerda has released especially for the Party Blog Hop Celebrations
Barry Throughout the Year                                       Molly Throughout the Year

So jam packed to the brim.. did I forget something.. yes .. housework!!!!
