One of my favorite childhood memories is Christmas and every year we would get an Advent calendar. I love making Advent calendars in all shapes and sizes. The Goodie Gear Simply Created Kit makes it really easy. I filled the little bags with treats, used the bakers twine to attach them to the tree and embellished the tags that come in the kit. To make sure the tree does not look too empty and boring when all the treats are gone by the time we reach Christmas I added some Festive Flurry snowflakes in between.
CCREW1113SF -- Scrapbook focus: The last leg of our journey is to take that walk down memory lane and share a favorite childhood memory, event, toy, or treat on scrapbook page, mixed media project or with This & That!
I like "out-of-the-box" projects where supplies are used in a non traditional way. The "Tag a Bag" gift bags provide a very quick and easy way to decorate your table for the holidays.
CREW1113CF --Creative Focus: KITS! We have a mountain of kits to choose from, they make a class or a workshop easy peasy! The next part of our trip takes us into packaging territory, show us something with the Pretty Packages line on pages 158 & 159 of the main catty or any of the kits or packages in the mini catty.
CCREW1113DF -- DSP/Color Focus: Since we're starting Sweater Weather why don't we take our trip down that road first. Show us Chocolate chip, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango all getting happy together.
CCREW1113HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Holiday focus: Did you know that November 26th is national cake day? Trip number three is to be inspired by the cake pictures and show us what creation one of these cakes led you to.
Below is the cake picture that inspired my card.
