I have a small chest of drawers in my front room to which I've been wanting to add some kind of display. When I started playing around with this month's stamp, I got the idea to do a seasonal 12x12 layout and put it into one of the scrapbook page frames you can get at your local craft store. This way I can change out my layout on a monthly or seasonal basis and have a fresh look throughout the year. As I pull them out I can store the old pages in page protectors until the holiday comes back around! At the end of this post I'll put photos of the individual squares if you are interested in making you own copy of this fun project. The great thing about a project like this is that you can use just about any accessories you have on hand as long as they work with the color combination!
