Advent Calendar Blog Hop

Welcome to our second of 2 Blog Hops happening this month. In this Hop you will find that each consultant has created a calendar, we've used different materials and created our own take on advent calendars!  Close To My Heart has an Advent Calendar WOTG kit that you can purchase from your local consultant, or you can purchase from me here. 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Darla in Nova Scotia at If you came from Michelle M. of "Twirl n' Time"  then you are in the right place!

I used the Close to my Heart Cubby to make a traditional advent calendar but I made my own design on each box.
The Close to my Heart exclusive Cricut Artiste cartridge was used to cut the boxes and numbers and a few of the images. I used several CTMH Christmas stamp sets, including:
 Flakey Friends, 
A Sip, 
Captured Moments, 
Bundled Buddies, 
Love Life,
Merry Pursuits,
and Holiday Trinkets
to stamp my designs and cut out. I then used sparkles and red and silver glitz glitter gel to add some bling!

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Darla of  "Stamping under Doctors Orders ".

You can find a complete list of our blog hop on Michelle's blog if you get lost along the way.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own Advent Calendar using some of the designs and products seen along the way. Join us again on December 15th when we showcase a 3D Christmas themed project from the New Artiste Cartridge.
