Christmas Advent Calendar Blog Hop

Welcome to our second of 2 Blog Hops happening this month. In this Hop you will find that each consultant has created a calendar, we've used different materials and created our own take on advent calendars! Close To My Heart has an Advent Calendar WOTG kit that you can purchase from your local consultant, or you can purchase from the link above.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Darla in Nova Scotia at

Sheri's blog: Sheri Says Just Scrap It

Then you are in the right place!

In our house Lego building is the youngest's favorite past time.  Everything is about building scenes, so he gave us inspiration. Why not give him the opportunity to open a box a day and build a traditional Christmas scene while enjoying a daily chocolate treat. Note for shopping list, we must pick up some Hershey's Kisses to further stuff the daily boxes. The above picture is how the scene starts on December 1st. The following is after each box has been emptied and placed in its spot.

A closer look is below, the entire scene is a paper quilled creation, right down to the milk & cookies for Santa. I know the kids are going to enjoy this as much as we did making it. Nice challenge!

Products Used:

Dakota Paper Pack

Various colors of cardstock

White Embossing powder

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own Advent Calendar using some of the designs and products seen along the way. Join us again on December 15th when we showcase a 3D Christmas themed project from the New Artiste Cartridge.
