Sangria Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sangria blog hop!
If you've landed here from Shaunna's blog you're on the right track.

My project for this hop is this stunning advent calendar.

If you open up your copy of Annual Inspirations 2015/2016 to the Sangria section, you'll see that this calendar is an extended version of that gorgeous quilt block page.
If you have a copy of the Reflections how to book, you can easily duplicate this project with just a few more squares, some stamping, fussy cutting, and some embellishing!

Not only does this use up lots of scraps, it's also a great project for using with our red magnetic display frame! Simply pop it in the frame and use a base&bling pendant (glue a magnet to the back using liquid glass) to mark the days leading to Christmas!
The idea with this advent calendar is to have a nice title page for your Christmas album, and a reusable advent calendar for years to come! If you don't have the red magnetic display frame, you can slip this into a page protector and pin to a cork board and use a dry erase marker or washi tape to mark down the days.

You don't have to use Sangria to make this calendar (I've recently finished another in White Pines and it'd look great in any CTMH paper packet) nor does it have to be an advent calendar. You could easily tweak this to be a perpetual monthly calendar or a birthday party count down, or any other count down you can think of!

Materials used: Sangria paper packet, trimmer, versamat, spritz, scrubber, blocks, 14" ruler, inks (cocoa, pomegranate, eggplant), stampsets (handwritten print, holiday cheer, hand lettered Christmas), gold foil tape, clear sparkles, pink enamel gems, nonstick microtip scissors, colonial white cardstock, Reflections how to book, adhesive.

Up next is the beautiful Denise!
