Christmas Advent with Bo Bunny Dear Santa

Christmas is coming......

I wanted to make an advent calendar for this year and its no good waiting til December to start so I thought I would be all prepared. I came up with the idea of altering the actual box that these chocolates came in, of course I turned to Bo Bunny for some festive inspiration and chose to use the Dear Santa line for my project.

I cut pieces from lots of different sheets to use to cover the chocolates, then I cut the small numbered sheet up that came in the Dear santa 6 x 6 paper pad. I layered these onto the small rectangles then attached then in place.
I fussy cut some images for the center of the calendar and finished it off with a Happy Christmas Gold Foil Transfer. I love how the colours in this collection make everything looks so super festive.
Can't wait to share this with hubby on the 1st.

Bo Bunny Supplies Used;

My November shares for 2Crafty Chipboard DT

"Beach Escape"

Hey there 2 Crafty fans I am excited to be here to share with you two layouts that I 
created using the fabulous 2Crafty Chipboards this month. I have a short video tutorial
  to go with this first layout but please, bear with me as its my first attempt at a video.

I used chipboard pieces from 12 different chippie sets on my page, can you spot them all?
I used gold glittery embossing powder on the sun, taken from the Summertime Words Set
 and I used the same treatment on the Polaroid Frame that surrounds my photograph.

The Tiny Film Strips are perfect for tucking in and can help to add balance to
your pages, I left them raw and I think they look great this way.

I used two different embossing powders on the Beach title chippie, I explain this in
 a little more detail on my video. The words in the Mini Travel Word Sets are small and
 delicate and I glued the escape word to the title piece to elongate my title.

For my next page I used the Word Circles set 1 and a Dancing Sun
 to create a strip across the middle of the page.
I kept the circles quite muted but they are still a great focal point for the layout, in 
contrast I gave the Dancing Sun a coat of gesso and then used embossing ink with a 
white glitter embossing powder to give some sparkle.
The Assorted Arrows are an essential set to have,  as I find myself using them on lots 
of pages, they just give that little extra something something to your work. I placed a
 piece of patterned paper behind the Fast Forward Arrow to create a little embellishment.
 Some string wound through the circles added the finishing touch.
