12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew".  We’re just a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of Holiday Inspiration.

We're making crafty projects using products we like and some of us are even offering prizes. Check each blog and the information there for what prizes are being offered and when the winners will be announced on that blog.


To kick off the month of December I'm sharing a very very simple Advent Calendar. My calendar last year was very time consuming, and while I loved it, I needed a little more simplicity this time around.



All of the gorgeous rustic number squares were cut from a single sheet in the DCWV "Christmas Memories" stack. I matted each number on some DCWV holiday glitter paper and simply attached them to a gold ribbon with a clothespin. Done and done!


Each day that passes, you take the coordinating number off the ribbon and pin it around the Christmas tree. I'll be linking up to the current Paper Issues gallery and the Advent Curtain Call.


Thanks for joining me for Day 1 of our holiday event! Be sure to visit the other talented ladies to see what they have planned today!
