StampFairy Birthday Blog Hop

Hello everyone!

I have a special post today in celebration of the first birthday of StampFairy!  Gerda, the owner and artist, along with all her StampFairies are hosting a blog hop and everyone who completes the hop will win a prize!  Isn't that great! 

Now if you've arrived here from Dora's blog you're on the right track.  Otherwise, please pop back to StampFairy World to start at the beginning because you won't want to miss a thing!

Gerda has released two very special collections showcasing two of her delightful characters - Molly and Barry.  These collections showcase the characters in 12 monthly themes throughout the year and the StampFairies have each created a calendar using these new images.  I've chosen to highlight the months of August, November and January today featuring the new Molly Calendar images.

Here's the full collection of Molly Calendar images and I had a blast creating my calendar with these wonderful digi stamps.  I love that they include accessory images so you can create scenes as I've done with the months I'm highlighting today.

First up is the month of August showing Molly getting in gear for school.  Isn't she cute with all her books!

Here she is a little closer.  I paired her with a quote that reads:  "The wisest mind still has something yet to learn."

These are the November Molly images - she's darling perched upon a tree stump!

The calendar template is a freebie for you.  You can find it with the Molly Calendar collection at the StampFairy Shop. On the calendar months I'm showcasing, I printed the calendar on colored cardstock.

And now on to the month of January....

I used the accessory trees here to create a wonderful winter night scene. 



To create my calendar display I cut a wooden rod to size, painted it and then attached a wire and beaded hanger that I made.

The clips I used to hang the calendar months are from Ikea and I decorated them with rhinestones.

Isn't this a fun project?  It's a perfect handmade gift for the holidays and anyone receiving it will fall in love with our darling Molly.  And all these images are 50% off at the StampFairy Shop - a special promotion for our StampFairy birthday!

Now, to ensure you receive your freebie here's what you have to do.  Visit each of the StampFairies' blogs along the hop and leave a comment on each.  You also will collect a letter from each of the teamies along the trip.  The letters are randomly placed but will spell a short phrase.  Once you've completed the hop, leave your comments, collect your letters and work out the phrase and then email it to Gerda (webmaster@stampfairy.com).  This will get you the freebie image!  Yes, that's right, a freebie image for everyone who completes the hop and emails the correct phrase.  And let me tell you a secret: the image you will receive is ADORABLE!!

Before you disappear from my blog, jot down this letter:

Now hop on over to the next teamie, Anita's blog, and don't forget to leave me a comment so you qualify for your freebie!

Thanks for stopping by!  The blog hop ends on December 31 so get hopping before the deadline.  If you get lost along the way, hop back to StampFairy World where there is a list of the full hop links.  Have fun and thanks for celebrating with us at StampFairy!
