A Start to Christmas Crafting

Alright so here's what I've been working on for the last month.  I feel so bad that I haven't posted in a while but I've been working, studying and crafting my butt off.  And I have to tell you that I am addicted to christmas and I'm pretty sure that I can make paper boxes in my sleep.  I saw this project made by Kathy at Paper Phenomenon - I love you Kathy!!  I really do idolize her.

Anyways, this is my first Advent Calendar - all made out of paper.  And guess what everyone is getting for christmas :-)  So I made the first one and everyone LOVED it so I had a class (yes with one person - thanks Claire!)  Now Claire loves snowmen so of course we had to tweak it a little and make a snowman.  Did I forget to mention that I got a Cricut Expression for my birthday - yah me!!

Here's the Snowman up close.  And we also added a 25 box.  Mine has velcro on it to keep it closed (added after the picture).  I love how it ended up, so cute.

 So then I decided that I had alot of "Countdown to Christmas" paper so I thought I should do up another one.  This one I did with the tree but had just gone out to Walmart and found this super tiny garland (bought it in every colour).  Love, love, love it.  I added another layer underneath the JOY ornament but it got taken away before I could take another picure.

I even added magnets to the back so that they could go on the fridge in the kitchen, note to self: add more magnet to compensate for weight of chocolate :-)  Hope you enjoy them.  I have to get working on christmas cards.

Happy Stamping!
