Counting down the days

Hello! Are any of you still there?? I want to start out this post with a much needed apology from me to you regarding my extended absence from the blogosphere. My life has been a little hectic lately, and to shed even a little more light, I have not been myself physically for even longer. Things are getting better,  So.....please accept my sincere apology, and I will try my best to get to sharing some more stamping and crafty goodness with you real soon. :)

I DO have a project to share with you today. This month Stampin' Up! put a request in with all of this years Artisan Award winners, to come up with a Holiday project to showcase on the Stampin' Up! Face book page. Of course we all said YES! I decided to make a Countdown Calendar using the 25 & Counting set found in the Holiday mini catalog -

I used one of the Clear Stamp (DVD) storage cases. Here is a pic of the inside -

Using the Petal Card Punch I created little envelopes to store the little tags that I made to change out as the days count down. On the front I did the same. I created an envelope with some window sheet and the Petal card Punch. The Envelopes on the inside of the case are attached with a glue dot, and are stamped with the corresponding stamp so you can easily find the next day, and store nicely for years of use. I have mine propped up on an easel on my desk. I think it turned out Super cute! Don't you!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. :)
