Guest Designer, Angela!

 

 I couldn't be more thrilled than I am today! Jaded Blossom (my absolute FAVORITE stamp company) is turning 1...and to celebrate, they choose 25 people to be a guest designer on their blog for them! YIPPEE!!! I was one of the ladies that got picked! With that being said, lets get on with my project..... Theme is crafters choice which made it that much harder to pick something! haha!!! I just got some fabulous Echo Park Christmas paper in their Holly Jolly line and I knew I wanted to use that....so I made a Christmas craft to share!

Countdown to Christmas!
I took a plain Advent calendar that I purchased from Hobby Lobby last year after Christmas and revamped it. I cut out different paper from the Echo Park line and adhered it to each pull out drawer. Then I used different patterns for each edge (top and bottom is red, sides are chevron).




All the numbers I used for the dates came from Jaded Blossom's Number Candies stamps. The tag "Merry Christmas" & "Happy Holidays" came from their Christmas Wishes set.


I put some "coal" and "elf poop" in some of the drawers for the boys to eat! I used the Christmas Candies for the bottoms.

Box 25 has their special treat in it! I made this cute tag with the stamps from Santa Mail set.



I LOVE these bags! I put a few quarters in them and then the big prize is $1 for each kid! I tied the top with some trendy twine & divine twine in their holiday colors.


 



I used Puppy Love for the bag with the doggy and "Happy Howlidays!", Winter Wishes was used for the bag with the snowman and "there's snowman like you". Finally, I used Winter Penguin for the last bag (that stamp was a limited stamp).

Thanks for stopping by today to help celebrate Jaded Blossom's 1st Birthday!

Your project is awesome. I too have one of these that I just haven't gotten to yet. Maybe I will complete this December for next year :) I love the papers, and your use for the number candies for the dates on the little boxes. You certainly were able to use many JB products for this project and your children must be so excited each day to get their surprise. Thanks for sharing with us.

Not too terribly long Brandi....What i did to make it easier for me was just cut the square of paper out for the front of the drawers and then i used my 1 inch circle punch for the "finger" part =) the hardest part was figuring out what to put in the boxes! lol
