countdown to Christmas

here is my latest project- a Christams Advent Calendar

This project came together really fast and has a vintage 1950 feel to it.  I used Pink Paislee city sidewalk paper line with chipboard snowflakes and tag embellishments.  I didn't have enough tags (made pockets out of the tags) so i also used 7 gypsies envelopes from antiquaries paper line and just covered them with paper. Distressed and ink all edges (walnut distress ink its my fav) then sewed it all together.  All the numbers and letters were cut from tim holtz wordplay but first i  folded cardstock in half and glued together so they are slightly raised and thicker but not near as diffcult to cut as chipboard letter.

 I love how simple and colorful this project is but the fun layout of tags and pockets makes it more interesting.

here are some close ups

debating making this one kit let me know if anyone is interested!!

PS wendy told me to layoff the embossing powder for awhile anyone agree??
