Christmas in July

For the first time EVER I have made something for Christmas in July.... Usually it's November or so.  Of course, the fact that I'm now not working has a lot to do with it!  I used a Kaisercraft advent calendar box.  The center paper is Graphic 45's Christmas pad from last year; I also popped up part of the picture to give it dimension.  The remaining paper is a little of this and a little of that.  I used Tim Holtz stain and stickles for coloring the dates.  These are soooo much fun to make.  I want to try a blue, silver and white one next - love those colors for Christmas.

  1. You do advent calendars sooo well everytime - LOVE it!!! I always get stuck overthinking what to put on each drawer.

    Sigh... Christmas theme already. I wish I could get motivated this early!
