Advent Calendar – Product Swap with Pretty Little Studio

swap-header

Hello everyone! I’m back today with a project for the week-long product swap between The Cut Shoppe and Pretty Little Studio.

I love Christmas! It is my favorite holiday. Lots of crafting going on for me at this time of the year! I had been thinking about making an Advent calendar for quite some time, but never got around to it. When I saw the Tinsel Town collection designed by Ashley Horton for Pretty Little Studio I could not resist. I had purchased a wooden frame from Michaels a few weeks back and thought it would be perfect for the idea I had in mind.

I used a lot of different cut files: Decked out (which is free in the Sassy Scrappers store), Under the Mistletoe (another free cut file you can find on The Cut Shoppe blog), Tree farm, Tinsel Town, and Wreathed in love.

The first thing I did was cut all the fun little boxes. I wanted to have a variety of them, so you can find gift boxes, pillow boxes, envelopes, and gift card holders.

I love the die-cuts that come in the collection. There are so many of them and all as cute as can be!

I cut the Under the Mistletoe cut file from two different type of cardstock and adhered one on top of the other. I love the effect the layering creates.

The Noel frames are one of my favorite products. I backed them with some of the patterned acetate sheets in the collection and decorated them with cut aparts, cut files, and die-cuts. For day 18, I also used some of the fun paper that comes in the packaging.

A few ornaments here and there add more texture and dimension.
