Advent Calendar


Isn't it sooooo cute? I ordered the materials to make this in August. August! Can you believe it took me this long to sit down and tackle this project. I worked on it most of the day yesterday and a couple hours this morning. I think this would have been fun with a group of my favorite ladies.... my Austin friends. There is a bit of prep work to do and it is like making 25 little cards, but I think it is so much fun and I will pop it in a frame and have it ready for December 1st (which happens to be my son's 12th birthday!)
Here are a few close-ups.... I have a few mistakes, but I am okay with it....just adds to the charm:-)















I have thought about putting together a kit for this- what do you think? Too late for this year? Something fun to have around to work on for next year?

Super cute. I agree that it would be a fun project to work on with friends or your kids over Thanksgiving break. Can you show us a picture of what you have under the flaps?

Beautiful job Joan. I really like the way you embossed several of the background layers. And the use of the glimmer paper for accents. Really added some sparkle and shine.

Jean- this is only possible thanks to you and your directions. I appreciate you so much for taking the time to write it out AND generously sharing with demonstrators.<3

Joan- I love it. I bought the die and stamp set meaning to do this as a project, um... maybe next year.
