Naughty or Nice? Advent Calendar & Pyramid Explosion Box - by Toni Herron

Ok, I have a confession to make......... I have never made an Advent Calendar before. Yes, I know you're gasping right now! How can a person be crafting for so long and never had made one?! Well, I finally decided the time was right and thanks to the super adorable chipboard pieces from Memory Maze, I was inspired to create TWO this little beauty below and a special "Aussie Christmas" version for my boys. You can see both below. 

Naughty or Nice?  

I am truly loving this project and do believe that I will be keeping it for myself. 
Although I did use matchboxes for the drawers, the house is made by using the 12x12 sheet chipboard. The circles and title were inked, sprayed with mist and dusted with distress glitter. The cute little Reindeer was simply inked. The Trees and Sleigh were both painted with the same Grey that was used on all of the edges on this project.

Aussie Christmas - Advent Calendar

The Santa Hats have been covered with Red ink on both sides, then glue has been applied for the "Fluff" to stick, then Liquid Pearl has been used to make the dot on the tip.
"Aussie Christmas" comes already prepared in different colours, I choose Red.
The little Reindeer has been layered 3 times with "Puff White" embossing powder.

I am absolutely loving the chipboard packs that Memory Maze are now designing that have all you could need for a project or page. I have used a gorgeous flourish, some butterflies and flowers all from the same pack. Honestly, what more could you want! Such an ease knowing all the hard work of matching pieces is already done for you! All of the chipboard that is brown and teal have been inked, the grey was painted. I have not added glitter or dimension magic to these pieces as I really wanted to keep it as a matte finish.
