Advent Frames and The Craft Awards

Hello friends

Don't shoot the messenger but we are only 67 days away from Christmas!
And for 25 of those days you need an advent calendar! :)
For those who would like an advent kit, this year there are two designs, vintage and modern.
Vintage features Graphic 45 - Twas the Night Before Christmas papers and

Modern features My Mind's Eye, Mistletoe Magic as pictured below.
Each kit comes with:

Full instructions
Natural wooden frame (can be painted, stained etc)
25 cut/embossed box bases (Ivory Hammered)
25 cut/embossed box lids
25 decorative matching cut labels
Advent numbers

Take a look on the website here - they make fantastic gifts and you can fill the boxes with
all sorts of treats.

There is one frame kit available that has the same matching paper all the way through,
each box lid is Graphic 45 - Jolly Old Elf.
If you fancy a frame that is completely matching then this one could be for you,
the decorative labels are cut from contrasting 'Bundle of Toys' paper.
Quick though...there's only the one!

STOP PRESS!  The one-off Advent Frame is now...

Other news... 
It's that time of year when you are asked to get 'clicking'!
The annual Craft Awards is asking for you to vote for your favourite blog, products,
blog, website, blog, store, blog, best gadget, blog and ... (did I mention blog?!)
All the details are listed here. 
There are options already in place but you can always tick 'other' and state your choice...
just thought that might be worth mentioning...  a little cheeky of me! :)
This is the 10th year of the awards and voting closes on 21 December.
Have a lovely weekend, I'm packing, sorting flooring, making up kits and and and...
just a tiny bit busy but enjoying it.

Take care friends.

Oh no - is that all it is to Christmas. My card pile is so small at the moment. I really must try and get some Christmas crafting this weekend.
Lovely Christmas projects today. Graphic 45 make such wonderful papers.
Enjoy your weekend - you are going to be very busy.

What a scary thought-67 days to go! I love your Advent Calenders. I'm considering having a stall at a local craft + vintage fair-its only a small fair in the village but it would mean I could try and sell some of my cards-decisions, decisions....!!!


Chris said...

Hi Christine, I really need to get on with my Christmas cards, I have made a start but still have so many to make. Not today though as I'm having a dinner party tonight so it's housework and cooking for me. Love the Graphics 45 papers.

HI Christine, every time I set aside craft time to aim for Christmas cards something else gets in the way and it's starting to get, have a good weekend, hugs Carole Z X

Morning Christine
Now that's a scary thought! I really don't know where the time is going and not sure I will get much time this year for card making for Christmas as we're moving house and soon all my craft room will have to packed away 😕
Enjoy your day.

Hi Christine, I still don't even want to think about the 'C' word, and oh no is it only so many days away, nooooooooo haha !! I will have to really start thinking about making cards.
I absolutely love the Graphic 45 'Twas the night before Christmas collection, I love the story and I love the traditional colourways.
Enjoy your day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Yikes! Put like that there isn't enough time left. Have made a few cards, but that's it. Too warm to feel Christmassy. Hope you made progress with the wood treatment.

LoraineC said...

Is that all!!!! I also love the graphic 45 papers, very nostalgic xx

Mrs B said...

Hi Christine. It is a family joke that we have a daily countdown to how many days until her birthday (24th Nov) and how many days until Christmas starting on 1st October every year from Gemma(daughter). I do start thinking about making Christmas cards but like Carole Z something else always gets in the way!
I love the vintage papers in particular. Good luck with your jobs over the weekend. Have fun. take care.
