Stamp Fairy Birthday Blog Hop

Hello everyone, this post will stay at the top until Dec. 31.  PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE RECENT POSTS!!! THANKS!!!!

We have a special post to delight you today. Stamp Fairy is celebrating its FIRST BIRTHDAY , so Gerda and the Stamp fairies are hosting a blog hop, with a difference - EVERYONE who completes the hop will win a prize.

Gerda has released two very special collections showcasing two of her delightful characters.  These collections showcase the characters in 12 monthly themes throughout the year and the Stamp fairies have each created a Calendar using some or all of the images.  Some of us are teasing you with only a month or two of our calendar, but other teamies will share the whole calendar if you're lucky!

 Hoppers...here is what you need to do:  Hop between the Stamp Fairy teamies and the challenge blog, collecting letters for a MYSTERY PHRASE. The letter you are collecting from me is.............


 




Ensure you leave a comment on each teamie's blog (including ME!)  and collect a letter from each teamie along the trip.  The letters are randomly placed but will spell a short phrase.  

Once you have completed the hop, left your comments and collected your letters, work out the phrase and email it to Gerda (webmaster@stampfairy.com).  This will get you a Freebie image. Yes that is 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 !!

You should have arrived here from  ANNETTE'S BLOG.  If not, please head back to the STAMP FAIRY BLOG so you can see all of the amazing creations so far!!!!  From here, please head to KAREN'S BLOG!!!!


So, get a cuppa, have a seat, sit back & enjoy!!!!! 


The calendar template is FREE and you can download it HERE!!!  Be sure to keep reading right to the end so you can get all the info you need for the blog hop & see what you can win!!!!


So, here is what I did!  I took a 5x7 picture frame, took out the glass & punched holes in the back of it with my Crop-o-dile.  I used 2 inch Binder rings to hold my pages on. 

Back view:

Side view:  

Front view (I just added the DP there to make it look pretty..no one will ever see it as the calendar pages are in front of it!)





AND NOW....for the calendar!!














There is also a Stamp Fairy sale going on RIGHT NOW!! So, head to the SHOP to check out all the AMAZING images!!! Be sure to scroll through ALL of the categories, there are some INCREDIBLE images from weeks past!!!


Don't forget to leave me a comment!!  This will ensure you qualify for your FREEBIE!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  The blog hop ends on Dec 31 so get hopping before the deadline.  If you get lost along the way, hop back to the main blog where there is a list of the full hop links.



Good luck & have fun hopping!!!
Hugs,
Chris
