Christmas Countdown Advent Calendar Pages 6-10

Good morning and welcome to the most wonderful time of the year! It's the Christmas season - finally! I love, love Christmas and everything about it.
Today I'm showing you days 6 -10 of my Countdown Advent Calendar. Many of you liked seeing this yesterday and wanted to see all the pages, so stay tuned, I will be posting 5 pages each day this week so you get them all. I do have some other things to post, but these pages will keep coming until we get to day 24.
Again, the original artist of this calendar was demo Karin Warner and I thank her for her great idea!

Day 6, above is very simple with just some sponging and a rhinestone brad to accent the design. I did use the Tree Trimmings stamp set to create the background on the Real Red cardstock.

Dec. 7th is my wedding anniversary! Yay - this year it will be 18 wonderful years. The dsp on that page reminds me of the bed and breakfast in Maine we stayed in on our honeymoon.

Day 8 features the reindeer stamp from Winter Post, you could substitute Dasher if you needed to, but I'd move up the quote panel if you do that. The Real Red grosgrain ribbon is attached with a Mini Glue Dot.

Day 9's photo has shadows on it that I couldn't remove, but it's NOT sponged, just stamped.

I kept Day 10 very simple, just used the Snowflake Punch with Very Vanilla cardstock. they are attached with Mini Glue Dots.

The numbers on each day are punched out with the 1 3/8" Square Punch and layered on a cardstock square cut at 1 3/4". Both are sponged with Chocolate Chip ink on each page. I did use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the numbers once I got into double digits. You'll see as we get into the 20's that you have to overlap some of the numbers to make them fit the square, but it still looks cute!
Day 5 from yesterday's post is the only oddball, it's punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.

Again, if you have any questions about the elements used here, just e-mail me at

Have a great day!
