Creation Station: How to Be a Millionaire

Happy New Year!  It's so great to welcome 2021!  

The Creation Station Design Team is starting this year off with our first hop of the year with a fantastic theme.  This month our "How to be a Millionaire" theme features any of the million dollar achiever stamp sets, but really this idea was inspired by our fabulous team member Dena Rekow.  You can find Dena's $1,000,000 stamp set in the January June Catalog.  It's called Pretty Perennials and it has a matching set of dies called Perennial Petals.

I have decided to feature both the Pretty Perennials Stamp Set and the Perennial Petals Dies in my 2021 desktop calendar.  BUT, I have a sad story to tell.  As I was creating my calendar I lost 3/4 of the stamps in the set.  I have looked EVERYWHERE and cannot find the missing stamps.  I am so sad as I had looked forward to this hop for a long time and wanted to showcase Dena's set.  You can bet I will be ordering another set!

I kept the layouts quite simple with a few variations here and there.  The DSP that I used throughout the entire 12 months is the Playing with Patterns 6" x 6" Pack.  I also used the matching Playing with Patterns Enamel Dots and some twines to complete each months layout.  Here's a look at several of the months.

Stick around there is lots more hop ahead!  Next up is Kathy Kartak and her Faithful INKspirations.  Enjoy our How to Be a Millionare Creation Station Blog Hop.


  1. Oh my gosh, I LOVE IT!! BUT HOW did you lose your stamps? I am soooo sorry!! :( THat is THE W.O.R.S.T! As always, fabulous work, Liz!

  2. Great project! You will enjoy it a whole year 😊 really hope you will find the stamps again...

  3. Wonderful, wonderful project and a great way to highlight Dena's stamp set. I've lost photopolymer stamp sets and looked all over for them, too. I generally find them stuck to the bottom of a tool--trimmer, Stamparatus, or at the bottom or in the middle of a stack of card stock--I'm a messy stamper--pulling lots of things out and moving them around as I work on a project. So, here's hoping you find or have found yours in an unexpected place!!
