A Wintery Advent Calendar

Advent Shadow Frame 1 by Clare Charvill JOFY stamps
After a lovely surprise meet up with old friends yesterday we had another surprise last night as Father Christmas sleigh and all called by collecting for the Lions Charity.  Seeing him and hearing the carols has really has put me in the Christmas spirit so I thought I'd share my wintery Advent calendar with you. 

All the elements were stamped in black using JOFY Stamps (I love them) collections 5 & 6 onto smooth white card, watercolour painted with different shades of blue distress inks, and then cut out.  It took quite a while to collect up all the finished pieces and fix them all in place but I loved the end result and really enjoyed putting the project together.  Here's a few more pictures.

These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
