Advent calendar using your Cricut!

Hello, friends!

I hope you are having a great holiday week and enjoying your time with your families. The Christmas spirit hit me yesterday and I started Christmas shopping yesterday. I have a ways to go, but I finished four people. You have to start somewhere though, right?

Today I wanted to show you the wonderful advent calendar you can make using this fabulous kit! Now again, you can alter this anyway you like and dress it up even more by adding flowers, holly, and ribbon! The little boxes cut out using the Artiste cartridge. I love the cubby that comes in the kit because I want to do something else with it after Christmas, so stay tuned!

Love it. Wish you had it when my kids were young or even my grandkids. I always had an advent calender for them. But had to buy them. Now that I scrapbook - no one to make them for- all too old.

I made two of these ~ just filled 'em up and wrapped them this evening to give to my sons and their wives when they're here for Thanksgiving in a couple of days! I put candy, gift cards, lottery tickets, socks, small ornaments, hot chocolate mix, nuts,rolled up boxer shorts,golf balls/tees, and even treats for their pooches in the little boxes. Hope they like them!!

Your card is really, really cute I got this cartridge last year when it first was released and this year I got snow friends because I think they go together nicely. Good job getting your shopping 99% done I'm 95% done it was fun shopping Black Friday my daughter picked me up at 4 a.m. and got me home at 4 p.m. we had a blast.
Nothing like spending 12 hrs. with your daughter having a fantastic time doesn't get any better than this! This year especially I'm so grateful and blest that I could do this.
