I found an advent calendar kit from years ago and decided to decorate it for my granddaughter. I assembled all the pieces and painted them red. Painted the numbers gold. Added a decorative striped paper to the drawers before adhering on the numbers. Adhered a large scrapbook paper to the center and added some rub-ons.
I thought it would be fun to replace the drawers backwards into the calendar after each one has been opened, so I added 3D Christmas stickers to the back of each drawer.
Stamped a poinsettia image with gold StazOn ink on heavy vellum paper, cut out and added red glitter Gelli pen dots. Stamped saying with black India ink onto gold paper, added a red ribbon and layered onto a white card. Attaced the cut out poinsettia.

About 9 years ago, I had a fun class in Arizona learning how to make translucent papers out of tissue paper and wax paper. The artist didn't want us to share on social media the steps and now I don't remember how we did it (sigh). I still have some of the papers and decided to use it for this project.
Stmped an Irish Blessing on yellow card stock, then adhered the translucent paper on top. Stamped floral image 3 times on the translucent paper, stamping over the middle image a second time. Added copper Pearl Pen dots to the flower centers. Used a gold metallic pen to add some highlights. Added a bee sticker with glitter Stickles to the wing, and black washi tape to the bottom of the atc.

I inked both a bold font saying and a bold butterfly image with light blue dye ink. Then inked a crackled texture stamp with dark blue ink. Kissed (or pressed) the light blue inked bold stamps onto the dark blue ink textured stamp.
Then huffed (breathed) onto the doubled ink stamps and stamped onto white card stock.
I have a collection of decorative paper bags from shopping over the years. I decided to cut them into 3/4" wide strips to make birthday cakes and to punch out candles. Used metallic gel pens to color the flames of the candles.

My daughter-in-law sent me some of the onesies from when the twins were babies and asked me to make them quilts. I decided to cut out the designs from the onesies and use iron-on light interfacing as for a t-shirt quilt. The squares from these small onesies were pretty small, so I added lots of other fabrics to create these quilts. She is very happy with them. Whew!

The theme for 9ATC Group is embossing. I decided to use embossing folders. For the base, I adhered foil to carpet tape, then ran it through a small textured embossing folder in the Cuttlebug. Used black India Ink to color the top of the embossed foil.
Used a small metal brad for the birds eye. Added the embossed bird image to the ATC along with the word "soar".
