Nichole - This & That Advent Calendar

Ho Ho Ho! It's Nichole - and Santa is here with a fun way to keep track of the days until Christmas!

This block Advent Calendar was made using the Echo Park This & That Christmas Collection. This bright, witty collection mixes bright tones and vintage imagery for a fun Christmas!

This pattern was cut using the Silhouette Cameo with patterns from Samantha Walker's Block Calendar, purchased from the Silhouette Store.  I've deviated from the pattern and used strong patterns in red and green to contrast the numbers and make them stand out.

Here it is!  This woodgrain pattern was too beautiful to pass up, and used it as the dominating pattern as the background for these blocks.

A bit of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Tape in Tidings adds a bit of vintage images to the edge of the block stand.

Layered chipboard from the This & That Collection certain does spread the Christmas Cheer!

These patterns are a bit strong, but I think I like them!  Here we're counting 19 days to go.

Santa's hat and coat are adorned with Twinklets Diamond Dust Glass Glitter for a snowy, sparkly edge.

Vintage ephemera from the This & That collection is a perfect combination.

And here's the man of the season, Santa!  White Gel pen gives highlights on his boots, belt, and gloves.  His hat sparkles and his beard is a snowy white.

Thanks for reading and looking, hope your Christmas Countdown is inspiring you to craft along with us and bring in the Christmas Cheer!
