Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


Hello,

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am so happy to be part of this 'Advent Calendar Extravaganza event.


Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are over 60 special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises wait behind the door!

Today, I'd like to share with you a Christmas decoration I created.



I started by cutting two circles using Spellbinder's circle die.  Using few Distress Ink colors, I colored one circle with blue colors and the other with green colors.

After scoring the end of one circle, I attached both end of the circles using some Scor-tape.

To create the little houses, I used Papertrey Ink's Tinsel & Tags Make It Market kit and Petite Places: Church set. I then added little Christmas trees created using WPlus9 Iconic Christmas set.

For the sentiment, I stamped a sentiment from Mama Elephant-Studio Calico Cinnamon Spice set with Tsukineko Delicata Gold ink.

The embellishments on top of the element were created using Papertrey Ink's Tinsel & Tags Make It Market kit as well.

It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win!
