My Cricut Craft Room 100 Blog Hop



Welcome and Good Morning to another wonderful day for a hop. You should have came from My Cricut Craft Room .

So I wanted to make something for Christmas to share to you so you can make one before Christmas is over plus you can use this year after year and maybe one day pass it off to your children.

Here it is.....



I made this Advent Calender using four Cartridges..they were Gingerbread,Snow Angel, Just Because Cards, and Alphalicious.

The envelopes were cut at 3 inches. The two Snowmen were cut at 4 inches and the Big Snowman was cut at 7.8 inches and the Christmas Tree was cut 7.9 inch.



I wanted to use Velcro to close the envelopes but they kept opening so I was like forget it so I left it open.
I am going to place little scriptures from the Bible in them and what a better way to teach your children the words of the Bible. The last one I will place a piece of paper to a clue to a present.


Here is another Advent calender that I have made. I used Trim The Tree, and Just Because Cards, and Alphalicious for the wording same with the above Calender.

The ornament was cut at 8 inches and the envelopes were also cut at 3 inches and I added some pretty embellishments and decorated it.

Here is another close up of the side view.




I have made two more but you will have to see how I finished them.  So don't forget to stop by to see the other two Beautiful Advent Calanders tomorrow for day 2 of this hop and yes I used two more cartridge to make these Calendars.

Here are sneek Peeks of them...



Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fantastic Crafting day!

Next Hop to the Fantabulous Jen L.

Here is the line up just in case you get lost on your way!
Remember please leave some love on each and Everyone's Post because there might be blog candy just for you!  Have a great crafting day!
