25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 3 - Strawberry Advent Calendar

Hi there crafty friends and welcome back to my
25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 tutorial series!

The project I am sharing today is a Strawberry Advent Calendar. I made it for my 7 year old daughter who loves everything about strawberries.

The little gifts inside are mostly strawberry flavoured sweets, but also some strawberry themed stationery, jewellery and even strawberry socks. :)

In the video below I am demonstrating several ways of gift packaging. The heart of this calendar is several little strawberry shaped boxes. Other types of boxes are embellished to coordinate with them.

I will also show you how I arranged all the assorted bags and boxes into a calendar - look at the photos and a video below!

Chalkboard Slider Tag

Hi there, 

There is a fun project I would like to share with you today - that is an interactive Halloween tag. To create this tag I have used the new Autumn Fairies stamp set along with the coordinating dies and Memory Box Straight Slider Grooves dies. 

My color choice this time was black and white to achieve a chalkboard look.


The fairy with a tiny Jack-O'Lantern is sliding out from behind an acorn house - watch the video to see it and to learn how to make this tag!

Head in the Clouds

This card I am presenting today was inspired by some school memories. I think a lot of people know the feeling when you want to come back to school to see your friends and share the news, but then after a few days you start missing the summer badly and you want your freedom back...

All the techniques and creative process are disclosed in the video below.

Fairy Ballerina Spinner Card

Hi crafty friends, 

I have been playing with Faerie dies for some time now and it's amazing how many opportunities they provide. They are different sizes and can be used with or without the wings, but I found out that they are also perfect for interactive cards. 

Today I have created a spinner card using two mirror faerie images. But if you only have one of those it will still do for this kind of card - just stick a thread and a pair of wings between the two die cuts! 


Watch the video tutorial below for detailed instructions.
