Christmas Advent Calendar Scrapbook Page

Hey everyone! We're into December and the Christmas season is on! I love this time of year so playing with the Candy Cane Lane Collection has made me so happy! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project. It's an advent calendar that would be a perfect addition to your scrapbook after the holiday.

Check out the little envelopes and those teeny tiny embellishments. So, so cute! I loved choosing all the different 6x6 and 12x12 patterned papers, die cuts, and stickers for this project.

I wanted little pockets or something, then remembered I had the Love Notes Doodle Cuts metal die set. The envelope I used was 2" x 1.25" (larger one on the card) so 25 envelopes (5 rows of 5) would fit perfectly. I cut, folded, and glued one for each day leading up to and including Christmas.

I created my base by layering three different 12x12 prints called Snow Bright, Holiday Lights, and Christmas Sprinkles. Next, I arranged my envelopes until I had them laid out evenly. 

It needed something in between the rows of envelopes so, I cut and added scalloped strips from the 12x12 print called Festive Flowers. 

I cut 25 white mats to
1.25" x 1.75" and tucked one inside each of the envelopes. These make a perfect spot for thoughtful notes. Or ... it would be really fun to add a clue or riddle! Then you could send people on a mini treasure hunt each day for a little surprise. You could hide a sweet treat, a small toy, tickets to an event, or even small photos from the day! 

Then ... it was time to embellish. I couldn't wait to use Candy Candy Lane's puffy shapes icons! There are Santas, presents, flowers, reindeer, Christmas trees, snowmen, & holly. I love every single one of them!

To keep track of the days, I added numbers to each envelope using puffy Alphabet Soup stickers in ladybug, swimming pool, limeade, bumblebee, and lily white.

At the bottom, I added some really cute die cuts from the Odds & Ends and the Christmas title from Chit Chat.

After the holiday, save this layout in a clear page protector and add it to your scrapbook. It's a perfect way to remember the fun you and your family had counting down the days until Christmas.💗
