Jaded Blossom Guest Designer

I'm so excited to be able to participate in the Jaded Blossom Birthday Celebration and being a guest designer!!! Jaded Blossom is one of my favorite stamp companies, not to mention that Candace and Michelle are great crafting friends as well and a lot of fun to learn from.  For my project I created an advent calendar.  I've never done one and decided to do one with different activities for my kids and I to do through out the Christmas season.  WARNING!!! A LITTLE PICTURE HEAVY BELOW! :)

here's a full view
Each pocket has one of activity for the day.  Out of the 24 activities, 
6 of them are RACKs (Random Acts of Christmas Kindness). Every night we pick out the next day activities and if it's a RACK tag, we come up with something to do to make a difference.

Here is a closer view of the different sections of the calendar:

I used Jaded Blossom's Christmas Wishes, Christmas Candy
and Alphabet Candy to make the banner heading and to add the cute little
Christmas designs around the calendar.

I used the Lovebug Creations rumple ribbon Christmas Joy collection 
(Christmas Present) to divide the sections and hang them together.

 The tags I made using the print and cut feature on my cameo along with Pretty Paper Graphics Christmas Brights Chevron and Strips and Christmas Brights Circles and Spots digital paper.    

On the middle section of the calendar, I attached this cute little bag so 
that everyday the tags can get placed in there.
