Advent Calender

Hi there. Now that Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is just right around the corner, it's that time to start prepping for the holidays. Silhouette is offering a great deal on their advent calender to get you started. I had the pleasure of decorating one of these Advent Calender's using My Little Shoebox's newest release- Winter Wonderland. I love all of the pinks and blues in this collection and had so much fun making this! This collection has just started shipping and will be in your lss soon :D

So, all of my friends know that I am a bit computer challenged, but I have to say that the Silhouette Cameo is so user friendly, that creating these cute little drawers and boxes was a total breeze!

I just had to create a little winter scene on the top of the box. I needed a place to add extra glitter and iridescent Mica flakes! Here is my little snowman that I made using 2 muslin circles, a toothpick, copic markers and a gel pen. He's so cute!

So head on over to Silhouette and enter the code SHOEBOX to get $10 off of the Advent Calender box (that's only $29.99!). So hurry, this special ends November 11th.
Check out the MLS blog for more pictures of this box.
Thanks for stopping by!
