Design Team Tuesday for My Life in Arts n Crafts

Hello everyone!   Today we are giving our once a month hop a twist this month.  I am just doing a regular design team post today. For the My life in Arts n Crafts Store, you should check it out, to see more projects on our

Christmas Creations with Jute and Twine.

As for my project today, I have created an Advent Calendar.  Using my the cut outs from one of my newest stacks from DCWV, Evergreen.  Such a cute stack, so many possibilities!  Well they have these cut outs, perfect for an Advent calendar.  For every season I try to change my 12×12 frames I have, according to the holiday or season.  This time I stripped the mat out and added wide strips of ribbon.

Getting creative all on my own I was really challenging myself on this one since I didn’t use a sketch or spin off of someone else’s idea I just kept creating.

After putting the thick bands of white and red down,  I didn’t want the look of a flag, I wanted the candy cane effect so I used the twine from My life in Arts n Crafts Store.

Strips of pretty papers from the stack to match the colors, (great for scraps too!) I thought it turned out pretty easy to do and so pretty for the holidays.  I used Make the Cut software to match up some of the shapes, and hand cut the rest.  Pop dots for dimension too!  I hope you have enjoyed this project!  You can go to her store to see all the other projects as well.  Thank you for stopping by,  I sure would love to hear your COMMENTS if you have any, it is always nice to hear the encouraging words of others.  Will you be making an advent calendar this year?? I would love to see it, if you leave me your post link,  I will check it out!

I hope it is a wonderful season this year for everyone!
