ADVENT-UROUS scrapping~

What a wonderful way to count down to my favorite holiday, Christmas! Found this @ Target on Wednesday and decided to make it my own. I have been dying to break open my Prima prize ( it has been taunting and teasing me since it has not made it into my scrap area yet!) so today I took the plunge and after a few hours this is what I came up with.

I also sanded the edges to give it an old distress look. On the black tie embossed white flower (#24), I inked it with red stazon and then put a layer of modge podge and then a layer of powder pigment to make it sparkle !

Prima Crown Jewels in marie antoinette (that is the big green blossom on top, I LOVE it!)

Well I hope this gets you in the spirit!

Hug a loved one and drink some hot cocoa!

BTW, tomorrow I am going to post a YUMMY and oh so easy recipe that is family friendly, peppermint cookie crunch bark. This was a hit @ my workshop for church.

See you tomorrow!



  1. Your advent calendar is so pretty!! It makes me want to make one!!

    I'm definitely coming back for the peppermint cookie crunch bark recipe! That sounds so good!!

  2. What a piece of art work! Just love the calendar. Need to find one of those to make for next year.
