Christmas Advent Calendar

Hi Everyone!
I'm so glad you could join me here today in my little area of blogland!
I have a super treat for you today....actually 24 of them if you're lucky!  LOL
It's another Snow Kissed Collection project created with Heartfelt Creations products!

I won't keep you in suspense any longer!
Here's this weeks projects....a Christmas Advent Calendar!


Now...it's not very often that I will come out and share with you that I love a project...but this one just makes me giddy with happiness!  I love the way it turned out...so much so that I've promised the kids that I will try to make them each one and include them in the designing!  

I've used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the phrase along with the pieces for the advent calendar itself!  The entire project has been completed with the Snow Kissed Paper Collection by Heartfelt Creations with the exception of the back...which is a simple white card stock.  I chose this particular advent calendar file because I loved the fact that it had a shadow box area in which to build a scene as I love dimension!

Here's a closer look from a different angle...


I've fussy cut the upper corner greenery image from the same paper that I've cut the scene from for the backing of the shadowbox area.  I've stamped the little snowman onto white card stock and have colored him with my Ranger Distress Markers.  I've fussy cut the ornamental baubles from another of the decorative papers in the collection and applied them to make them seem that they are hanging from the greenery.  As a final touch I've added some Glitter Snow to the bottom of the shadowbox area and up the side, as well as around the greenery section.  I added some extra Glitter Ritz to the snow because I felt it needed more sparkle.  I've also used my Designer Dries Clear Glue and fine metal tip along with some more Glitter Ritz to add some sparkle to the river scene.  

Here's a closer peek...


I know I would love to fill this up with yummy chocolates and treat myself to one each day on the countdown to Christmas!

I hope you've enjoyed today's little tour of my latest creation!
I'd love to know what you think...so please feel free to leave a comment for me!
