Club Scrap October Artist Team Challenge



I found this the other day and Facebook and it spoke to me. See I am absolutely on the left. I love everything about the holidays. I love the decorations, the food, the holiday movies. My family can not wait for the first seasonal viewing of the movie ELF. We have a daily family text with the ELF quote of the day and of course we count down the days until Christmas! 

While scouring Pinterest for gift ideas I came across this awesome Christmas Countdown Calendar. I knew immediately I wanted to recreate one for us and to also a few to send to my nieces and nephews. She used the ever popular IKEA Tolsby frame. Sadly there is no IKEA close to me but I found some similar frames a while back in Michael's.



I used my all time favorite Club Scrap kit Gnome for the Holidays! It was the Christmas kit released back in 2013.I started by cutting out some different shaped tags; some on the Pazzle and some by hand. I also used the Pazzle to cut the numbers and some of the inside shapes.



I decorated each flag individual using the beautiful patterned papers, the stamps and the cut aparts from the kit.


I also used bling, glitter and various embellishments from my stash.









If you are planning on making one for yourself or as a gift I will let you know that I needed to use 2.5 inch rings to hold all the banners and to give enough space for them too turn. I am so excited with my project I am not sure how I am going to wait for December.

Thanks for stopping by today. Your next stop on the hop is Roni's Blog and don't forget to head back to the Club Scrap Blog and share your gift creations!

A countdown calendar is so great. Especially for the young ones. A super cute project.

I love this idea for a simple countdown that doesn't involve tying anything, finding candy to fit, or worrying about junk falling off of hangers. Might just have to copy this.
