stamphappy - you are amazing and generous. Thank you so much for creating and sharing. I have to say... some coworkers who are NOT crafters perused my holiday mini today and now two of them are interested in taking my advent class. I never thought they'd be interested so I stopped telling them about my events.... whoa. This is a good option for a class too. Thank you for sharing your fantastic idea and instructions.

So glad you are getting interest in your class. I had 13 people in my class and they all really enjoyed it and bought extra supplies to make more. It's a lot of work but also a lot of fun.

Glad you liked - sometimes I think the stamping gods visit my craft room because things just disappear in a poof of glitter

Pauline, your advent calendar is terrific. You did a great job on it. How generous you are to share your instructions when you easily could have sold them. You'll laugh at me. When I first started scanning the instructions and got to day 5, I thought to myself "wow, this is a LONG class". Duh, me! Pam

This made me laugh out loud - you so funny

The class went from 6:30 pm to 1:00 am - that was long enough!! As it was, they kept saying they were going to sleep over and what's for breakfast. But before I decided to do the class we discussed that it would be a late night but it was well worth it.

Oh my goodness! Beautifully done tutorial. Your attention to detail is amazing. Clearly a lot of time and effort went into this and it's so generous of you to share so freely. Thanks so much!

I too got a good chuckle out of your note. Must not get on the wrong side of the stamp gods.

Thank you so much for sharing your tutorial. I have two customers that want to make the calendar. I was hesitant to start this project, however, I will give it a try. They want the frame to hang the calendar on a wall. So I will need to adjust my sizes to fit. Thanks again.

So glad to help - just think of it as making 25 little cards instead of the entire project - I had to keep telling myself, "it's just a little card"

By using a frame you have the option of using all the Peekaboo frames because you have more space whereas I was limited by the box size I chose.

Good Luck and have fun - your customers are going to love you even more!

OMG. I can't believe all the work you put into this. Thank you so much. I have been trying to decide how to even start this project for my grandkids. I loved the SU project, but I wanted to add treats. This is great!

I am so glad to find this tutorial. I got the peekaboo frames and the stamps today and I want to get right at it. I have read the wonderful tutorial, but am I missing something. How do you make the little boxes, exactly? The 2 x 2 boxes - I have read and re-read but just don't get that part.

Glad you like - I bought the boxes at ULINE.com (see the Misc. supply section). I've been told that Michaels carries 2x2x2 boxes so you might be able to find them there or at some other hobby store.

It never ceases to amaze me. I think Splitcoaststampers must be the most generous people in the world.

I know this tutorial took a lot of work to put together. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
