Last year I wanted so badly to make one of the Advent Calendars I had seen on SCS, however where I was in MO, I would've had to spend a small fortune to get the tins and the canvas, so I didn't make one. This year however being in NC, I have access to more stores and gotta love them 40 and 50% off coupons~ yeah! I got the 16" x 20" canvas at Hobby Lobby and the tins at the Dollar Tree. I had a brand new pack of Dashing DSP that I couldn't find at all today.. not sure how it grew legs and walked away, so I opted to us a Stampin' UP! All the Trimmings ~ gosh I hope that is what the Scrappin' Kit is called.. it is retired, I bought it and never used it, but for today it was perfect. I used my Cricut Expressions and the Doodletype cartridge to cut out all the numbers and letters, 1 1/2" and Scallop circle punches for the tins, stickers are from the kit. I started on this about 6 hours ago and in the mix fixed dinner and ate, and then went right back to working on it. I am going to fill it with candy for my kiddos and hubby.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
