Christmas in July - Advent Calendar (Part 1)....

Good morning, today I want to share with you the recent Christmas in July class I held using the Under the Mistletoe Suite.  We made this advent calendar.

I had been wanting to create an advent calendar for a while and Christmas in July seemed the perfect opportunity for this project as it allows plenty of time to complete it before the 1 December deadline!!!  How does Christmas always creep up on us, I mean its on the same day every year after all!!!

I knew I wanted to create the calendar using boxes so I made up 24 boxes first and then built the design around it.

I had 23 kits to prep which took quite some time and here is the room all set up for the day.



All attendees received a personalised pizza box with all the goodies they needed to complete the project, along with a little table gift full of those all important sugary treats to get them through the day!
I hope you like my project, it sure was a labour of love but I think it was well worth it and something that can be treasured for years to come.

You can purchase many of the items I used to create these projects from my online shop or by clicking the thumbnail pictures below.  Now is a great time to shop as Stampin' Up! has their Bonus Day promotion running at the moment.  For every £45 you spend, you will receive a £4.50 Bonus Day Coupon Code which you can spend on products of your choice during the month of September.
Be sure to pop back tomorrow when I shall be sharing some of the cards from the display table using the same Suite.
Happy Stampin'

  2. Hi Jo! My name is Janet and I am an independent Stampin' Up demonstrator. I happen to stumble on your website with the Christmas Advent calendar. It is very beautiful! I love it! I know this was created back in 2018, but thought I would ask to see if you had any kits leftover or instructions that I could purchase. Please let me know.
