Countdown to Christmas


This turned out SO CUTE! I don't even LIKE Santa, but I was still tickled with how this turned out. I have a hard time calling this an Advent calendar, because the bearded dude has zilch to do with Advent. So it's just a Countdown-to-Christmas calendar.

And I can't take credit for the idea. I was inspired by Amy Sheffer's countdown calendar here: http://pickledpaperdesigns.blogspot.com/2008/10/here-i-come-wassailing.html

Mine consists of two four-inch coasters (from StampOnThis.com) covered with SU! Ski Slope paper, stamped with Baroque Motifs in acrylic paint, and bound with the numbers 1-24 in a Bind-It-All coil.

I made only three, and it took me about ten hours from start to finish, including dry time for paint and short breaks to stretch my back or pick kids up from school. I sold one at each of my craft fairs, and still have this one left.

Paper and the punches are SU! Number stamps are from The Paper Studio. 'Christmas' stamp is from Stampabilities.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Stacey -

Love your countdown claendar. Is your last one for sale? I sure would love to buy it. When are you going to do the next Scrapbook in a Kit?

Thanks for your inspiration.

Hi CJ!
Glad you like the calendar! It is for sale. Email me and we can figure something out.

And I'm hoping I can post details about the next scrapbook kit or kits (I may do two to make up for the lapse...) sometime next week.
