Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the first day of the December release of stamps from Taylored Expressions!!! This release focuses on all petite stamp sets perfect for so many occasions! As you hop around today - you will see all kinds of new petite stamp sets ready for your crafting happiness along with different calendar products that will get you organized for next year and/or will make the best gift to give to someone special! Today, I am showing a sample form the sweet petite stamp set Snowflake Wreath which is perfect throughout the winter months and is also a great option for a holiday cards! 

For my calendar project, I used the awesome Perpetual Occasions Calendar which helps to keep track of all your birthdays/anniversaries each month - and the best part is that since these occasions don't change - you can keep the cute calendar forever! :) I decorated the December page with the sweet Snowflake Wreath stamp set which is part of the seasonal wreaths collection from Taylored Expressions designed by Nancy McKinney and concepted by Jami Sibley. I stamped the snowflake wreath and cut it out and then attached the ribbon on top of it. I used one of the snowflakes in the stamp set and stamped it with different colors to create a background for the calendar: 

 Here is a closer peek at the notebook - this is something that you hang on the wall or keep by your office desk - which is where this little notebook is going :)
