Default Let the Christmas Countdown Begin !+ video

Hi all and a very happy Monday to you! Okay, okay, I know. Itís not even Thanksgiving yet. But we're REALLY getting into the Christmas spirit earlier than usual this year over in Simon HQ and we're so Iím so excited to share this fun & festive countdown project idea from the talented and sweet Jess Larsen !

This special season only comes once a year so be sure enjoy it all month long, the holidays are so much more than one day a year!

I canít help but act like a little kid when it comes to Christmas. It is all so fun. The decorations, the food, the presents and the family time make me incredibly happy! So, whatís a better way to get geared up for the season than a good old fashioned Christmas countdown!

I created this project using an Ikea frame and lots of Simon goodies. First, I stamped the Simple Letter Outline stamps to spell ďChristmas CountdownĒ and colored them using Copic markers (on sale now!). Then I took some papers from the Peace Joy Love 6◊6 pad from Lawn Fawn and die cut Simonís Eliza and Kate snowflakes. A few sequins and some glitter later and this project was finished! I popped it into the frame and will be using a dry erase marker to count down the days. It easily erases off of the glass using a damp cloth.

I created a start to finish video sharing the whole process, so you all can count down to the big day as well!

Thanks for reading today and thanks so much to Jess for being our guest!
