Home for the Holidays GDT for Frilly and Funkie

I'm very excited and honored to share with you today my creation 
as GDT for the challenge at Frilly and Funkie 

The theme is Home decor and what better then to have
 an Advent calendar for the occasion


This Calendar is creating with all of Tim Holtz products except for the skies
the small sled, and the knobs.


I started with the Matchbox die and Kraft paper for all the drawers. 
The designer paper is from his Seasonal 12 x 12 paper stash


For the Sled and the deer I used Nostalgic Kraft Core 
Metallic paper for the dimensional star die


Wreath is made using the mini Holiday greens die


No dies for the gift bags and gifts, I used my score pad
and after a few attempts got the correct sizes


For the knobs, I used corsage pins, cut them to the correct length
and added a rubber earring backing. 
 I toned them down with Mushroom Alcohol ink 
I also added a clear sequin for that extra sparkle


I used Tissue paper, collage glue and lots of clear glass crystal 
for the perfect snow effect


Here is a look with drawers open


I'm so very pleased with my Calendar and it looks awesome
on my mantle
