  • I'm Kristen, a clumsy but determined home cook and crafter living in the Boston area with my husband, B, and I have an interest in all things food and craft.

    This blog was created to keep track of my various projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity.

Silhouette Advent Calendar

I recently finished a fun advent calendar project using the new Silhouette Advent Calendar kit, and I’m excited to share it over here, as well as on Paper Crave, where you can read more about the project. I’ve wanted to do an Advent calendar for years but could never find a shadow box with more than a dozen or so nooks, and this frame is just what I’ve been searching for.

I used my trusty Silhouette SD to cut out all of the box templates (all of the template files are included with the Advent calendar) and all of the numbers that I used in my project, and I’m really happy with the result. Now, I just need to figure out what I’ll be putting in all of the little boxes.

If you have a die-cutting machine and are interested in making an Advent calendar of your own, Silhouette has a pretty good deal going on until November 11th. You can purchase the Advent Calendar for just $29.99, a $10 discount from the regular price. Use code CRAVE to receive your discount.

Red White Gray Holiday Patterned Papers

The printable patterned papers and number die-cutting templates that I used in my project can be purchased over on k.becca, and I bundled everything together at a special discount price if you’d like to purchase the papers and numbers together.

    I love this!!! I’ve been around the entire internet and the metro-west Boston area and cannot find one I like. I was about to make one myself which would have been much cruder than yours. It’s delightful and I shared it on FB so hopefully others will feel the same. Almost wish it were a bit bigger but I think I’ll order it just the same. Thank you!!

    Thanks, Leanne and Jas!

    Leanne, you and I were probably shopping at some of the same places … with no luck! I don’t know what types of items you’re planning on adding to your boxes, but you might find that they’re larger in person than they seem in the photos. They’re a few inches deep, too, which is great. Have fun with your calendar!
