Advent cal closed

You can "peek inside" several of the squares because I used the amazing new Peekaboo Frames die (#124587) with the Big Shot from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog (click here to order).

Advent cal openI loosly based my design on the calendar featured  on page 36 of the Stampin' Up! HOliday mini catalog.

One difference is that I decided to print out the images in My Digital Studio so that the class would go a little quicker.  Here is the page my students will receive:

  • 1” circle punch
  • 1-1/4” square punch
