Hello and welcome to the Advent Calendar Blog Hop!!! I’m so happy that you are hopping with us. First things first, if you came here from Michelle’s blog then you are in the right spot. If you landed here by chance and want to play along or need to get back to the beginning of the hop, please start here at Angelica’s blog. If this is your first time to primpedinpaper.com, I want to say welcome and I hope you find my blog inspiring.

Let’s get started! I’m thrilled to be part of another Hop hosted by the sweet and talented Ruthie.  This Hop includes 16 awesome ladies. I’m excited to be included in this group of talented paper crafters. Thank you Ruthie for hosting another amazing Hop!

This is my first time making an Advent Calender so I was really looking forward to this project. I decided to challenge myself to not use my Cricut. I wanted this Advent Calendar to be something that anyone could put together with minimal supplies. So I got out my Christmas patterned paper stacks, punches, strands of beads, glitter, one very cute set of Lawn Fawn stamps and my hot glue gun. Then I went to town! Click photo’s to see a bigger picture.

2010 Advent Calendar

Each cone is made from a 5x5 piece of patterned paper.

The tissue paper is hand stamped with a peppermint stamp from Sassafras. The cute animals are from the Lawn Fawn, Critters in the Snow stamp set.

I decided to use my circle punch since almost everyone has one in their craft supplies.

The cones are hung with clothes pins that I glittered. The red flower on cone 25 was made by my good friend Susan (suziecrafter).

I hope you liked my Advent Calender. It was a lot of fun to make and I think it looks very festive hanging on my fireplace. Now I just need to get some goodies to put inside the cones. At the bottom of the post I listed the products I used to embellish my Calendar. Whether you keep it simple or embellish it to max, I think it will look amazing. The most important things to me are that all ages can help make it, you don’t need a lot of supplies and of course that you have fun!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! Before I send you off to your next stop. I have some Blog Candy!!! I apologize for not have a photo of it.

A little Valentine card made using Bazzill Kraft cardstock, papers from the Target Dollar Bin & a Martha Stewart heart punch. Hearts are popped up using 1/16 inch pop-dots. A small red button with white string was added to one of the hearts. Sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado. It was stamped with black Staz-On ink. To finish off this quick and easy Valentine’s Day card, I added white faux stitching around border.

Hope you like this. It’s really quick and doesn’t take a lot of supplies.

Here’s a really fun and silly card I made using stamps from Sassafras Lass, Life at the Pole. This card game made me giggle as I was making it. 😛

-The gingerbread man is embossed with clear embossing powder. The gift in his hand is a rub-on from the Target dollar spot.
-I punched the snowflakes out of paper that was embossed with Stampin’ Up’s iridescent ice.
-The sign pole is made from the candy cane stamp that is also in Life at the Pole. I hand wrote the “Naughty or Nice” sign.
-To make the snow, I ripped white cardstock then embossed it with iridescent ice. To finish the card, I inked the edges with blue pigment ink.

Have you been good this year? 😉

Naughty or Nice?

Rawr!

Lil' Gingerbread Man

Hand written sign and candy cane stamp pole.

Lil' Gingerbread Man is sucha sweetie!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Here is my first Christmas card of the season. I think this turned out really cute. It’s simple but festive. I used the Hero Arts, Owl Christmas stamp set. The owls are stamped with Staz-On ink and colored with watercolor pencils.

Here you can see the glitter gel pen on the leaves and the iridescent ice on the owls sweater.
