Project Parade - Day 9

And now another fabulous project from our Guest Diva, Jennifer Meyer.

Hello and welcome to the Verve Project Parade. For my project, I chose to create a fun advent calendar. The calendar was created on a small cookie sheet that measures 13.2 “ X 9.2 “. (I got mine at the Dollar Tree) To personalize our calendar, I added our family name on the top using the printer and a fun font.
Since the cookie sheet was longer then my standard 8 ½ x 11 cardstock, I created some fun layers on the bottom to camouflage the seam. The background of the calendar was stamped and embossed using Snowflake Splendor. All of the pieces for the dates we made using the square scalloped Nestabilities and layered with piece of chocolate chip cardstock. Numbers were made using my Playground font by Sizzix.

What would Christmas be without glitter and shine? Once the calendar was put together, I used the Martha Stewart snow glitter all over the dates along with the fun layers on the bottom of the calendar.

Since our family is full of December Birthdays, I used my Birthday Surprise stamp set and embossed a few presents to mark all of the Birthdays in December. The snowman was stamped twice using the Snow Wonderful stamp set. To make our calendar interactive, all of the images have a piece of magnet on the back. You too can create something so fun and something you will cherish for years to come! I know my children will have a blast each morning moving us a day closer to the best time of year!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Merry Christmas & Hugs to all, Jennifer
