Christmas with the Cricut~Home Decor

Today is Home Decor with Christmas with the Cricut.
Like I said yesterday, Christmas is my all time favorite holiday:)

I had so much fun making this advent calendar. I remember as a kid getting so excited about Christmas, and fighting with my brother and sister on who's turn it was to open the little doors on our advent calendar.
Memories.........


There was so much I wanted to show you with this project, that I had to make a video.



Thanks for watching!

Head on over to Teri's blog to see what she's done for home decor. She is amazing!

Supplies: Cricut Cartridge (Winter woodland, Storybook) pattern paper (Paper Loft); chipboard (DCWV); brads, button, and grommets (misc), Top Note Die (SU), Binder Rings (Staples), UTEE, ribbons and thread, Clasp (Tim Holtz), and Cardstock (SU and Bazzill)

  12. I just love it!! Its so cute and what a great idea!! I just have a quick question for you though....Where did you get the ultra thick embossing powder and how do you only get it on the areas you want? I know when stamping you your stamp and the pad, but how do you do it on cut images? Do you just use the Versamarker? Thanks!!

  19. What an adorable advent calendar. My great nephew would love one of those for Christmas. I think I will do it so that it is a countdown kind of calendar. I will start it at 24 and count down to 1. Your pages are just so pretty.

  23. Hi Christina! Love the advent book! It is so cute!!! I've never played w/ chipboard before. do you just glue down the paper on it? Is that how you covered the pages? If you could email me how you made one of the pages I'd appreciate it!

    Thanks!

  33. I found UTEE at AcMoore. I think Michael's has it as well. You use it just like embossing powder with a VersaMark pad. It's great.

  43. Love it!! Is there a cut on any of the cricut cartridges that resemble the top note die from SU? I loved the look of your pages, but I don't have that die. Thanks so much and congrats on Christmas with the Cricut. Sandy C. sczcec@yahoo.com

  48. Could you please tell us about the tool and the name of where to get it that you use in the advent calendar the pink one I think I need one, but I can not catch the name of it thanks so much for your help and the great ideas

  49. Teri - If you're talking about the pink tool that sets the eyelets it's the Crop-A-Dile. WONDERFUL tool that you can find at any craft store.
