December SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's Stamp of the Month, Year Round Cheer, a set of 12 stamps.  If you have came here from Angel's Blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.

I LOVE the Snowflake stamp in Year Round Cheer, but did not love the Fresh Start saying.  The solution is easy peasy, just cut it off!  That's right, you can easily cut your My Acrylix stamps to suit your needs.  I did save the Fresh Start saying, as you never know, I might want to use it later.  But instead of masking and masking to make my background...I found it easier to customize the stamp to meet my needs.  All shapes on my card were cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at The House That Stamps Built.
