GOOD MORNING my creative friends & welcome to our 1st day of our "Twelve Days of Christmas"! Okie dokie, there are TONS of pics here for you to see today! I am NOT HAPPY w/my pictures because it was already to dark to use the light outside:( I promise, my "Countdown to Christmas" is MUCH PRETTIER in person!;) I have been SO INSPIRED by all of these advent calendars lately that I just HAD to make one of my own! WOW, where do I start.....basically, all I did was adhere 25 of my cute little pocket dies to a kraft color 12x12 cardstock! I decorated every pocket using SEVERAL of my products & I just LOVE how it came out!
For this title, I finally used my Cameo & cut out this free file (the banner)! I'm not sure exactly what size it is, I just made it big enough to fit across the entire 12x12 cutting mat! Then I was SO HAPPY to use my "Lower Case Fun Dies" for my title! I added some glass glitter to my snowflakes!
Here are some pictures of all the pockets!
This is one of the goodies that are tucked in a few of the pockets! I thought it would be a good idea to put a message that states "Read" & when the boys pick this, I will let them either go to Barnes & Noble OR let them order a book online! I thought this was PERFECT because BOTH of my boys LOVE to read! I used the cloud die for this message!
I put little clothespins on the little tags so it would be easier for the boy to take them out!;)
This next one I used my heart die & stamped a candy on here so they can pick a candy this day!;)
This next one, I used one of the banners from my "Build a Banner Kit" & stamped a little chocolate kiss here!
This next one, is pretty self explanatory! lol..... YEP, when the boys choose this one, there will DEFINITELY be a Starbucks run!;)
This one is my FAVORITE! When they pick this, they will give me lots of hugs & kisses~! ;) There will be ONE DAY that they "might" think they are too cool to give their Mommy hugs & kisses, so I will take as many as I can get now!;)
I'm not going to lie & say that this was SUPER EASY......lol...it took me 2 days to complete it, but I am in love w/the end result! I landed up "recycling" this frame that Miss Liz, Miss Katie & myself made either last year OR earlier this year! I had this frame in my craftroom w/a few of my favorite cards on it! I just removed the cards & used it for this~! I thought this frame was a PERFECT fit for this! (Pretend you don't see the hot glue on the right side of the frame) hahahaha! I forgot to remove it before my picture taking! Oh well, I hope you like it my sweet friends!
Here is my video on how I put this together!
Supplies I used:
~ Fly Away w/me Sentiments (banner die)
~ Mini Cookie Cutters (Hobby Lobby)
Okay, now onto the BEST design team in the WHOLE WORLD~!;)
