Just as a little reminder - I know you would all like to know - there are only 46 days left to Christmas!!!
Start of a new challenge week at Polka Doodles this week and the theme is Use a Tag. Now, the brief for the DT this week was to use three or more tags in our creations. Do you think I went a bit overboard with 25? LOL :-)
My advent calender is on a 12" by 16" canvas, all the papers and embellishments are from the new A Home for Christmas CD. The Calender numbers are from the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut all the embellishments. The are all popped up on foam dots to add dimension. I printed all my papers double sided first, then cut out the tags. Then I added all the embellishments and dates. I added some holly and candy canes to the dates.
Also showing the bottom half and as you can see the last one to be turned over will show little old Santa :-)
When I started this project - I had something pictured in my mind. Not sure if I like the finished result completely, I feel it looks a little tacky, oh well take the good with the bad eh! I seem to be in a creative slump at the moment - think I am missing Andy more than I realise lately and finding it hard to craft. I need something to focus on and ideas, so if you have any please let me know :-) Maybe throw me a challenge :-)
So, I expect you are all busy creating and crafting for Christmas, so why not go along and enter this weeks Use a Tag challenge.
