A Christmas Advent Calendar to Make Now

It’s not too early to begin planning for the holidays! To get your Christmas season off to a delightful start, we’ve created an advent calendar papercrafting project using images from our new Cricut® collection, Season of Joy.Christmas Advent Calendar #ctmh #closetomyheart #ctmhtistheseason #ctmh'tistheseason #Christmas #calendar #25days #countdown #adventcalendar #holiday #papercraft #papercrafting #diy #cricut #SeasonofJoyMake an advent calendar just like this one for your home, office, or wherever your crafting takes you, using this advent calendar workshop guide and our Cricut Design Space™ project files included right in the instructions! In this guide, we walk you through each step of the process to make sure you successfully complete this beautiful project just in time for the holidays.

First, you cut all of the pieces on your Cricut® machine using the Design Space project files provided. Then, you assemble the outer and inner boxes. This part is pretty repetitive with lots of folding and gluing for all 25 outer boxes and 25 inner boxes. That means during this step you can break out some Christmas music or a favorite holiday movie to have in the background as you work. Next, you stamp the paper embellishments using the My Acrylix® Snug Backgrounds stamp set, for a little extra color and texture. Then, attach your paper embellishments to each box. Finish off the project with some clear sparkles and a New England Ivy burlap ribbon bow on top. And there you have it! A calendar counting down to one of the most celebrated times of the year, measuring 16½” tall (not including the bow) with a 14″ wide base.

There are a few places where you will need to pay closer attention, especially when you’re using Design Space to cut and score your paper and cardstock. These tips are noted in the instructions, but we wanted to point them out again so you can keep them in mind as you’re creating your calendar.

  • We’ve made one project file to cut the outer boxes in New England Ivy cardsock. Design Space will display an alert that the project is larger than 11.5″ in height and requires a larger mat, like you see below. Click “OK” and cut the outer boxes using the cardstock on your 12″ x 12″ mat. It will cut close to the edges of your paper, but this way you only use 12 sheets of cardstock with two boxes on each sheet.

Christmas Advent Calendar #ctmh #closetomyheart #ctmhtistheseason #ctmh'tistheseason #Christmas #calendar #25days #countdown #adventcalendar #holiday #papercraft #papercrafting #diy #cricut #SeasonofJoy

  • You might wonder why the Outer Boxes project file only cuts 24 boxes. It is not a mistake! You will still end up cutting 25 outer boxes, promise. The 25th box, however, is cut from the Advent Calendar – Boxes and Embellishments (New England Ivy) project file. This way just saves you some paper. 🙂
  • There are individual project files to cut the paper embellishments for the box fronts and the last few inner boxes. They look something like this one below that uses the Candy Apple cardstock. Notice that some of the numbers are backwards. This lets you cut with the light side of the cardstock facing up, and then you flip the numbers over to use the dark side of the cardstock on the box fronts.

Christmas Advent Calendar #ctmh #closetomyheart #ctmhtistheseason #ctmh'tistheseason #Christmas #calendar #25days #countdown #adventcalendar #holiday #papercraft #papercrafting #diy #cricut #SeasonofJoy

Cut all your paper, put everything together, and add some embellishments, and you’ll have a lovely home décor piece to accent your holiday. After you’ve finished your own advent calendar, all you need to do is fill each box with a special treat for every day leading up to Christmas. There are many, many ways you can fill the boxes. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Candy or chocolate (of-course!)
  • Activity ideas (like going to see Christmas lights, making hot chocolate, or reading a Christmas book)
  • Christmas ornaments
  • Little girl “pretties” (hair accessories, nail polish, lip balm)
  • Small toys (Lego® figures, cars, marbles)
  • Ideas for random acts of kindness
  • Scripture verses

So, what do you think? Are you ready to make your own advent calendar? To keep things easy, we put together a bundle of all the paper and cardstock you will need to cut this project (click here). You will also need a few additional items, including the Cricut® Season of Joy collection and the My Acrylix® Snug Backgrounds stamp set. For a complete list of additional required and optional products needed, as well as step-by-step instructions, make sure you download or print the Advent Calendar Workshop guide, here.

Assembling a Holiday Sparkle Shaker Card

Were any of you able to catch our Facebook live yesterday? If you did, you know that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around these parts. Yep, you heard right! For the month of October we have an impressive set of holiday shaker cards for you to make and send to all of your favorite people this coming season! The best part—they are so easy to make that you can probably assemble all 12 that come in one kit in less than an hour!

Holiday Sparkle Shaker Card #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHHolidaySparkle #shakercard #shakerwindowcard #shakerwindow #cardwindow #cardmaking #holiday #Christmas #sentiments #CutAbove® #CutAbove #diy #warmwishes #holidaymagic #sequins #comfortandjoy #believe

These bright and festive Holiday Sparkle cards are part of our Cut Above® program, which means you get everything you need to assemble them in one convenient kit: printed card bases, die-cuts, stickers, loose sequins, window foam and acetate, envelopes, and easy-to-follow instructions—absolutely no cutting required! The detailed paper accents that we all love for our handmade cards are included right in your kit!

A shaker card, for those new to the idea, is a card that has a window compartment built into it that holds loose pieces, adding a little extra whimsy to the card design and a lot of fun for the recipient!

So how do the Holiday Sparkle cards come together? Take a look at the steps below to see just how easy it truly is to assemble these festive cards with their glistening windows!

Holiday Sparkle Shaker Card #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHHolidaySparkle #shakercard #shakerwindowcard #shakerwindow #cardwindow #cardmaking #holiday #Christmas #sentiments #CutAbove® #CutAbove #diy #warmwishes #holidaymagic #sequins #comfortandjoy #believe

  1. The very first thing you’re going to do is lay one of the printed card bases flat on your working space. Do not fold the card base in half just yet. This will give you a flat surface to work with, which is especially helpful later when you’re adding the loose sequins.
    .
  2. Next, carefully remove the outer foam ring from one of the window foam circles and attach it to your card front, on top of the printed circle.
  1. Keeping your card base flat, add some of the loose sequins inside the circle frame you just created.

  1. If you haven’t done so already, peel off the protective layer from the top of the foam tape ring to expose the adhesive.

  1. Remove the protective film from one of the window acetate circles and lay it on top of the foam tape ring.
  1. The last step in assembling the shaker window is to hide the foam frame by layering a faux-stitched circle sticker on top of it.
  1. Now that your window is complete, all that is left is to embellish the card front as well as the envelopes using the included die-cuts, stickers, and any leftover sequins.

You’ll notice that we give you a solid circle of foam tape, not just the outer ring to use in the making of the window. The inside pieces are purposefully included, and pre-cut for your convenience. Use these pieces to attach some of your embellishments for even more dimension.

To add some holiday cheer to the inside of your cards, the My Acrylix® Love with All the Trimmings stamp set (CC10188) is a perfect companion to this card kit with its many classic seasonal sentiments and designs.

So, what do you think?

With all of the time you’re saving using the Holiday Sparkle Cut Above® kit for your holiday cards this year, you’ll have more time to spend on some of your other holiday projects! But you better act fast! These kits and its supporting stamp set (Love with All the Trimmings) are only available until the end of the month, while supplies last. We’ve got a feeling that they are going to be flying off the shelf, so make sure to get yourself at least one kit while you still can!

Your loved ones will surely be impressed when they receive a Holiday Sparkle card and find out that it is handmade! They don’t have to know how easily it comes together—that can be our little secret!

You’ve Got Class: Teacher Edition

School days are well underway, and not just for the kids! Teachers are some of the world’s most wonderful people. They selflessly dedicate themselves to motivate and inspire others, and aim to make learning an effective and exciting experience. To show our love and support for these education superheroes, we’ve taken the You’ve Got Class collection, originally designed to preserve the best of your child’s school years, and came up with a variation of projects to give as gifts and to use around the classroom.

You've Got Class for Teachers #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHYou'veGotClass #bookmarks #teachers #school #backtoschool #gifts #prizes

Memory Keeping Gift:

Every year we give our teachers gifts, either for holidays or at the end of the school year, showing them just how much they mean to us and to our children. Using the materials from the You’ve Got Class workshop kit, create something truly meaningful and unique that you know they will show off around the teachers’ lounge and will want to keep forever.

You've Got Class for Teachers #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHYou'veGotClass #bookmarks #teachers #school #backtoschool #gifts #prizes #truefitfolio #memorykeeping

Design scrapbook pages on the included True Fit Folios, completing the first folio with pictures of your child’s class and teacher. Use photo placeholders on the remaining folios for her to add photos of her future classes from the years to come. The folios then become an ideal place for the teacher to preserve her memories and mementos of each passing school year. Lastly, place your decorated folios inside Memory Protectors™ in an album and present this beautiful memory-keeping gift to your teacher. The teachers in your life will never forget your family or this thoughtful gift!

Some Other Ways to Use This Collection Around the Classroom:

More often than not, schools and classrooms come with supply wish lists at the beginning of each academic year. Sometimes these lists are looking for “prizes” that can be handed out in the course of the year to those who’ve done something to earn them. We came up with a few ideas:

Bookmarks!

(No matter how advanced we are with our technology, books are still part of our curriculum 🙂 )
You've Got Class for Teachers #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHYou'veGotClass #bookmarks #teachers #school #backtoschool #gifts #prizes

Gift tags.

Personalized notebook covers.

You've Got Class for Teachers #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHYou'veGotClass #bookmarks #teachers #school #backtoschool #gifts #prizes

Even if your child’s classroom supply wish list doesn’t have these sort of items on it, educators can use these cute additions as welcome gifts to leave on their student’s desks at the beginning of the year, or as a gift during the holidays, or for a treat at Halloween, or simply just because they love their students (including yours).

Whether commemorating the scholastic achievements of your child or showing appreciation for the teachers who guide them along the way, the You’ve Got Class collection is your key to truly classy papercrafting.

Stamping with Memories in the Making

Want to know what we love about September?? It’s National Stamping Month! To get in the mood to celebrate all things stamping, we have two new exclusive stamp sets as part of our National Stamping month special, Memories in the Making.

Memories in the Making—Days:

Memories in the Making—Months:

Stamping with Memories in the Making #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHMemoriesintheMaking #MemoriesintheMaking #NationalStampingMonth #CutAbove® #calendar #scrapbooking

The Memories in the Making special, and National Stamping Month for that matter, is all about highlighting the ways you can use stamping in your papercrafting and memory keeping. This year is no exception! 🙂

Stamping with Memories in the Making #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHMemoriesInTheMaking #MemoriesInTheMaking #NationalStampingMonth #CutAbove® #calendar #scrapbooking

As you can see, these stamp sets can be a fun addition to a variety of projects. Memories in the Making—Months comes with all twelve months of the year in a lovely, scripted font, making it easy to add a large title to any layout. Memories in the Making—Days gives you a variety of smaller images to stamp numbers, lists, words, and other icons on your projects. Can you spot all of the ways we’ve used this stamp set on this birthday scrapbook page, anniversary card, and frame?

If you aren’t already sold on how you can use these exclusive stamp sets, we’re sure you can guess the other way we are using them this month—in a handmade calendar!!

Stamping with Memories in the Making #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHMemoriesintheMaking #MemoriesintheMaking #NationalStampingMonth #CutAbove® #calendar #scrapbooking

As part of National Stamping month, we’ve created a Cut Above® layout kit that coordinates with these Memories in the Making stamp sets! The Memories in the Making Cut Above® layout kit comes with pre-printed base pages, pre-cut paper, die-cuts, stickers, and instructions to create 13 single-page layouts. Combine this kit with a My Creations™ calendar, your Memories in the Making—Days and Memories in the Making—Months stamp sets, and a few other basic supplies to turn these single pages into a beautiful personalized calendar for the upcoming year.

Stamping with Memories in the Making #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHMemoriesInTheMaking #MemoriesInTheMaking #NationalStampingMonth #CutAbove® #calendar #scrapbooking

With the Memories in the Making—Days stamp set, you can note important dates, make short to-do lists, and add other fun icons and shapes to your pages. For this December page, we used the Charcoal Exclusive Inks™ stamp pad to stamp the numbers and added other images with the Glacier Exclusive Inks™ stamp pad for a little extra color.

Stamping with Memories in the Making #CTMH #CloseToMyHeart #CTMHMemoriesInTheMaking #MemoriesInTheMaking #NationalStampingMonth #CutAbove® #calendar #scrapbooking

Once the year is over, trim the pages off the calendar and slip them into Memory Protectors™ to preserve. The great thing about this Cut Above® kit, is that you can choose to just skip the calendar all together and make the individual pages straight for your scrapbook album! (To see all 13 completed pages, click here.)

These exclusive stamp sets, the layout kit, and several discounted bundle options, are only available during September, while supplies last. Make sure you get yours soon and join us as we celebrate National Stamping Month all month long with Memories in the Making!

Preserving the Best of Your Child’s School Years

You've Got Class #closetomyheart #CTMH #you'vegotclass #ctmhyou'vegotclass #backtoschool #memorykeeping #organizing #organising #school #schoolpicture #schoolmemento #schoolkeepsake #schoolalbum #backtoschoolSummer adventures are coming to a close as school bells begin to ring, generating much excitement and anticipation for a new academic year. We’ve prepared our children’s wardrobes, collected supplies, and arranged for healthy lunches in hopes of ensuring as much success as can be planned for. Just as we’re about to send these kiddos into the seemingly unknown, we prop them in our porches, getting on a school bus, or standing with their teacher and make them smile for the camera. Click!

And they’re off! School is back in session. Before you know it, you’re knee deep in artwork, certificates of excellence, report cards, and all kinds of treasures that you just don’t know what to do with. You most certainly don’t need to keep everything your child scribbles on, but there are and will be some things that you will cherish and value for a long time, if not forever. This happens year, after year, after year.

Because we are committed to memory keeping, we had to come up with a system that works to preserve these wonderful and prized memories. With some thoughtful consideration, we were able to put together a project that comes together quickly and easily to create a scrapbook album for all of these formative school years. Dear non-scrapbooker reading this post, please hear us out for a sec. before you assume this no longer applies to you. 😉

You've Got Class #closetomyheart #CTMH #you'vegotclass #ctmhyou'vegotclass #backtoschool #memorykeeping #organizing #organising #school #schoolpicture #schoolmemento #schoolkeepsake #schoolalbum #backtoschool

With the materials and instructions included in the You’ve Got Class workshop kit you create an entire album with one page for each school year. What makes this workshop unique to other scrapbooking workshops are our True Fit Folios. True Fit Folios are white cardstock folders that fit perfectly inside 12″ x 12″ Memory Protectors™. The workshop is designed so that each scrapbook page is assembled on a side of one of the folders. After you complete all of your pages, or folder sides, you insert them into the Memory Protectors™ inside an album. With this completed album, you are all set and ready to start adding your keepsakes and mementos inside the pockets, where they will be securely and safely stored for years to come!

You've Got Class #closetomyheart #CTMH #you'vegotclass #ctmhyou'vegotclass #backtoschool #memorykeeping #organizing #organising #school #schoolpicture #schoolmemento #schoolkeepsake #schoolalbum #backtoschool

If you’ve got any kids in your life—children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends, neighbors—this workshop is for you. Even if these “kids” are old and grown, chances are their school day relics are collecting dust “in a box somewhere.” (Well-preserved memories make a wonderful gift!)

If you’ve been looking for a way to store school memories with easy access, this is it. If scrapbooking is “not your thing,” this is the time to reconsider, even if it’s just this once. You want this album on your shelf, and so do your kids—cross our hearts!

And for those of us who are constantly click, click, clicking with our cameras, there are likely a few additional photos to include on the folio pages. We thought of that, too!

The You’ve Got Class workshop kit includes Flip Flaps™ so that more photos, journaling, or keepsakes can be added anywhere on a page without taking up additional room. Yep—they’re like magic! 🙂

Preserve the best of your child’s school years with the You’ve Got Class collection of products. This special features a paper collection, exclusive stamp set, and workshop kit specifically designed to commemorate the passage of these school years. But act quickly, these products are only available through September 30 while supplies last! (And they are moving fast!)
