♥ Make it Crafty Christmas Event and Giveaway! ♥

♥♥♥ Please Scroll Down for New Posts! Thank You! ♥♥♥

There's only 14 more days til Christmas!

The MiC (Make it Crafty) gang and their Special Guests thought it would be fun to have a 'grown up' advent calendar as we count down the days til Christmas full of inspiration just for us creative minds!
Each day a sneak peek will be revealed on the MiC store blog with a link for you to follow "to open the door".

All you have to do is stop by the store blog each day to open the next door!


PLUS Zoe has Christmas Candy full of lots of crafty goodies that you don't want to miss out on!


AND THERE'S MORE GIFTS

But what's even more exciting is that you will have a chance to win some Make it Crafty goodies like I have played with today!!

By leaving a comment on this post you could win:

Here it is finished! Isn't it pretty!

And these amazingly gorgeous Ornate Clock Chipboard Embellishments! Just LOVE that Butterfly Clock!!
The comments will stay open until the 31st of December and the winners will be announced in the New Year on the MiC store blog. You can join us for all 24 days - giving you 24 chances to win some MiC goodies! If you join us late, simply go back to the start and catch up!

This is what I have created with my MiC goodies!

This super fun Santa Sleigh 3-D Chipboard Kit! These chipboard kits are so easy and fun to put together! And they are really strong too! I could play with one of these kits everyday!!


I filled the sleigh with a burlap bag that I made that was filled with some scented Christmas Potpourri, greenery, Candy Canes and of course, Santa. This makes a great decoration or even a table centerpiece. It would even make a great gift for someone. You could place some money or a gift card inside of the sleigh! I also used some beautiful Chipboard 6-Point Snowflakes from the MiC Store too.

  
The reindeer were also so easy to put together. Before I assembled them, I simply rubbed some different colors of brown, cream and white ink pads over them to give them color. I then added the pom-pom trim and little bits of holly and berries to them. 


I adhered the entire thing onto a long piece of cardboard with a hot glue gun, so that it is easier to move around. I then added lots of snow (batting) and tons of glitter! 


Don't forget to leave a comment below before December 31st and stop by the Make it Crafty Store blog to 'open the door' to 24 other inspirational projects!

Thank you so much for joining us and we wish you and your loved ones a wonderful loving Christmas.

Thanks again Zoe for having me be a part of your special Christmas Countdown Event! I had a blast!

Great job on both projects, thank you for sharing x
