While blog surfing this morning, I came across a post on of cats and cardstock blog titled “One more reason to go to Starbucks.” I was already leaning toward a stop by Starbucks anyhow (a little caffeine comes in handy when chasing – I mean teaching 😉 – three to six year olds during Sunday School) and seeing her beautiful altered advent calendar solidified it. Off I went for a cup of iced Mocha (yes, iced – that Sunday School classroom is HOT) and an advent calendar.
After lunch, I pulled out lots of fun scraps & stash to begin altering it. Flipped the XM Radio on our satellite to Holiday Traditions to help get into the Christmas spirit. And a bit later I had my own altered calendar.
Here are photos of the results. It’s now proudly sitting on the top of the entertainment center in our living room.
Supplies: Autumn Leaves Foof-a-La, Chatterbox, Cosmo Cricket, Paper Salon, Provo Craft and Scenic Route patterned papers; QuicKutz Moxie, Sunshine and Tangerine fonts; Jolee’s Boutique sticker; Making Memories metal charms, brads, eyelets, rub-ons, cardboard stickers, TinyAlpha stickers, wordfetti; Li’l Davis rub-ons; silver stamp ink pad from Target $ spot; Uniball Signo silver pen; Die Cuts with a View adhesive backed cardstock; KI Memories present sticker; rub-ons; snowflake punches.
Where did you learn about putting up a custom banner? I want to change mine around, and need some help!
