Advent Frame Kit

Hello friends

So it's that time ....
the reveal of this year's Advent Frame design.

Dad has been busy in his workshop making the frames and Mum and I
have been preparing all the die cuts.

This year's kit is a fresh contemporary design using
Simple Stories - December Documented papers and the box bases are
rather luxurious ivory pearlised cardstock - 300gsm so sturdy stuff!

With every kit you receive the following:

25 pre-cut box bases
25 pre-cut box lids
25 coordinating label shapes
Advent Numbers - 1-25
Wooden frame
Full instructions

The frames can be painted, stained, varnished, left natural,
apply distress inks - so many options!

The boxes are the perfect size for treats,
chocolates etc - not £20 notes as my boys suggest every year! 
Although I do like the idea of putting a lottery ticket in box number 25.

This year's Advent Frame is available on the website here.

Take care friends.

  9. Lovely idea I may well be in the market to buy one next year! I'm going to be with lousy Internet connection but ai'll pop in when I can

  10. It's beautiful, Christine. I only wish that I could afford one. My dad was a master carpenter and had he still been with us, I would have badgered him to so something for me to use. I'll bet it was fun decorating the sample to show us :)

  11. Hi Christine. I have just had a very enjoyable time catching up with this weeks goodies. The Gift bag, Wreath card and Notelet set are all gorgeous. There is so much here to inspire me, the Woodland dies are on my wish list now : ) This years Advent Frame is wonderful, I think your Dad is going to be in his shed cutting more frames and boxes and you and your Mum are going to be turning the GC handles in your sleep before long as I can see it being a sell out. Have a good day. Take care xx

  12. Hello Christine,
