Close To My Heart Advent Calendar

Hi Everyone,

Just wanting to share with you a Close To My Heart project that I completed.  Close To My Heart's Workshop On The Go Advent Calendar Kit is a wonderfully fun to make, a beautiful gift to give and a festive Christmas Home Decor piece.  The kit comes with everything you need to complete this project with the exception of the Cricut Artiste Cartridge which allows you to cut out the boxes perfectly to fit in the cubby!  It comes with a full size stamp set that you can make use of all year round.  To give my project even more sparkle, I add Glitz Glitter Gel in Almond, Bronze, Red, Silver, Stardust and Green.  See the completed project below.

If you like the project but really are not interested in doing an Advent Calendar you can purchase the My Creations Cubby separately then use your Cricut Artiste Cartridge to make the boxes and you can turn your cubby into a fantastic storge for many different things, ie. Brad storage (On the front of each box just put a sample of the brads you will keep inside the box) Ribbon storage (Cut a slit or install a rivet into the front of each box to feed the ribbon out from inside the box) Pigment Ink Cubes storage, Cricut Cartridge storage (each box will hold up to 5 cartridges comfortably so you can actually store 125 cartridges in this tidy little cubby!) Embellishment storage (Each box measures approx 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" so you can fit very large embellishments and tons a tons of small embellishments too!)  These boxes would make great storage cubbies for silk flowers, washi tapes, spools of tread, skeins of embroidery floss etc. etc. etc.  So many ideas!!

If you would like any further information about these fabulous cubby's please email me at!  If you would like to purchase any of the items I discussed please click on the links and you will be taken to the Close To My Heart website from which you can make your purchases.

Blessings to all!

Have a SCRAPtastic day!
