This month's mini set is called "Mini New Year".
I find that it can be hard to find stamps specifically for the New Year, so this set would be a great additon to anyone's stamp stash. Here is what I came up with:
Now for the extra set, called "Calendar".
I absolutely love sampler type sets like this. When I first started stamping way back, one of the very first stamp sets I bought from a home party was a huge set containing small stamps for all of the different holidays. Sets like this are great for beginners, or if you need to fill some holiday holes in your stash. This set from Mark's Finest Papers is great because the images are just big enough that you can colour them in detail if you want, small enough to fit on a variety of projects like gift cards, tags, and even calendars, and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg like one of those big wooden sets. Here is what I came up with:
I had a lot of fun with this set! You could of course give these as individual cards, or combine them into four note card sets, or combine them into one huge set! I didn't even use all of the images here, so just think how versitile this set is! I think this could become a 'go to' set for anyone who has this in their stash.
Thats it for me today! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for day #1 of the Mark's Finest Papers November blog hop!
