Every Christmas I wanted to make an advent calendar, but it always felt so much work, that my daughter was getting one bought by the super market.

Last year I saw the one that Vicky Papaioannou made and I loved it so much, that I decided that next year I would have one of these for sure.

As always, I kept postponing it until I saw the Crafty Croppers challenge. I thought "it's now or never", so here I am with my new advent calendar, and a super cute story that the elves are filling every night the next day's box with something good or bad depending on my daughter's behavior.

Of course she is thrilled, so we put it over the fireplace waiting for the 1st of December when the elves will come.....




In the meawhile I will play at the following challenges:

With Christmas just around the corner (Ho, ho, ho I wish...), and the Crafty Croppers challenge on hand, I tried the stage technique for a christmas card. Needless to say , I was dying to do it for a long time, but I always have something that I am dying to do more!!!!!




I used:

Bassil Cardstock, Martha Stewart and EK snowflake punches, Hero Arts and digi stamps, tons of Stickles, my Promarkers and Tim Holtz's embossing bricks and distress powders.

It is 47 days to Christmas- it is the part of the year that we need to have a big supply of small gifts for all the loved ones.

Sometime ago, I made a post-it holder for my sister's desk and it went out really nice, so I decided to make a stock of them for small gifts to teachers etc.
