Advent Tree Calendar

As a continuation from yesterday’s video where I showed you how to make a box, today we are putting that box to use. . . 25 times!

I’ve constructed an Advent Tree Calendar out of the boxes and am so excited to show you how I did it! This is NOT my original design, I first saw these last year when my Mother gave one to me as a gift.


I love how this turned out using the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the Real Red Cardstock. I hope you join me in making one!

I used a computer program to make a template for the numbers. I printed them in red ink onto the Whisper White Cardstock. I punched them out using the 3/4″ Circle Punch, and adhered them to the red circle on each box with a glue dot.

The template for the numbers can be found HERE!

***AT THE TIME OF FILMING, THE CANDY CANE LANE DSP IS ON LOW INVENTORY*** Make sure you order some of this fantastic paper before it goes on back order! (10-13-2016)

Stamping Saturday Session 2

I held my third Stamping Saturday on August 6 and had such a great time! Thank you to those that joined me! And if you haven’t joined me yet, head over to my Facebook page and give it a like! I have my next Stamping Saturday event scheduled for September in the Events section.

In Session 2 I featured Thoughtful Branches, an August exclusive while supplies last! This stamp set with coordinating thinlets dies is AMAZING! I love the versatility. So many great things from flowers to trees. The first card we made used the Woodland TIEF and Whisper White Craft Ink to create a raised background. We used several greens on the accent leaves and cut out our sentiment with the Layering Ovals Framelits. The second card we made is a SHAKER card! So much fun! I used Emerald Envy as my main color, and added some Whisper White words on a banner cut out from the Duet Banner Punch.
