Door #16 in the Nook Advent Calendar

Posted by swewi on December 16, 2011

Hi and welcome to door #16 in My Scrap book Nook’s Advent Calendar! If you haven’t followed the blog hop so far, it’s not too late. Start hopping!

Or hey, how’s it going – if you’re a regular visitor!! 🙂

Well however you got here – I’m glad you’re here – and make sure you read all the way to the bottom of the post, there’s a giveaway!!

If you know me, you know that I have a hard time getting in to the Merry Season since I moved to New Zealand. But – ever since I had kids, I try really hard every year to get in to it. This year I have made some Christmas cards, and I have only a few presents left to buy, but I have STILL not felt very “merry”. 🙂

So, a little while ago, I sat down to create a little thing I have been thinking about for a while. If you saw my “crea diem” class for Scotties a few months back this is nothing new to you, but for everyone else I thought I’d do a step by step to show you how easy this little baby came together. This is what I made:

To make this you need Spellbinders “Nested Lacey Pennants”, “Ironwork Accents” & “Foliage”. I have used MME papers, a line from last year: “Holly Jolly”, and misc decorations.

Here is a little show and tell, it’s actually very simple!

That’s it! I am so happy with how it came together, and I hope I have inspired you to make your own this Christmas! If you do – make sure you let me know so that I can check it out!

Now – for the giveaway. This is what you can win from ME if you comment on this post between today and Christmas Day:

Aaaaaaaaand – make sure you hop on over to Leah Killian’s blog and get entered for the grand prize sometime between now and Christmas Morning. You could win a free subscription to the always inspiring Nook kits!!!
