Advent Calendar


Hello there! I managed to get my Advent Calendar done with a day or two to spare ... whew! I was cutting it close for sure. And now it is filled with wonderful little treasures and candies for Nate as we count down to Christmas. 

I used the Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas line (which I got from Paper Issues) and the actual calendar is from KaiserCraft. This was quite the undertaking. Big thanks to my local scrapbook store, The Village Scrapbooker, for holding the last calendar kit for me.

Do you have an Advent Calendar? Leave a link to your creation in the comments so I can stop by and see it. 

And... if you have a holiday creation, link it up to the Holiday Madness challenge at Paper Issues. It doesn't have to be new, and you have until 12/24 to link up. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I am quite happy with how it turned out. Husband keeps talking about what a keepsake it will be for years to come. That makes me smile. :)

This is so adorable! I live that line, and I think it makes for a very fun advent calendar. I didn't Greg a chance to make one thus year, we are using the one they gave out at church, hopefully next year I get one done. I agree with your husband, a beautiful keepsake for your family!

Love it! I like that it's reusable througout the years and doesn't take up a lot of room. Great job :)

I made one of these a couple of years ago and it is one of the kids absolute favorite parts of the holiday season. They take turns opening the drawers. Last night they got tickets that said they could watch Polar Express and have a treat--the loved it!

Cute advent calendar. I use a store bought calendar, mostly cuz that's what I've done ever since I was a little girl. But I really love the way yours looks.
