I thoroughly enjoyed creating my Advent Calendar so much that I ended up making three, one for each of the Grandkids. 

I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge
for the boxes and cut them at 3.25 inches.
I managed to make 5 boxes from 1 sheet.
I also used the Sparkle and Shine Holiday
Card along with the Santa Paper Pack.


I had so much fun choosing the colours
of the cardstock and inks. All from Close to
My Heart of course.
The Santa in my top image is made using
the Santa Claus stamp set from the
Holiday Gift Guide. The snowflakes are from
the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.
The stars here are cut from the Cricut
Art Philosophy cartridge.

The Numbers I made by using my Acrilix
Stamps (Magical Days) from the Holiday
Gift Guide.  For a finishing touch I will put
a couple of Hershey Kisses in each box.
Now I want one.
