Trendy Twine Tuesday - Advent Calendar

Hey everyone!

Alyssa here from My Thoughts Exactly :D Happy Tuesday! It's time for another Trendy Twine Tuesday!!

Today for my project I decided to make an advent calendar. I used the SVG Cuts Advent Calendar Kit. I bought this set last year but I wasn't able to make it in time so I was really excited to finally get to make it. Here it is:

The papers I used are Echo Park's Season's Greetings by Lori Whitlock. This is by far my favorite Christmas paper this year!

Here are some close ups:

I added a lot of little accents with the Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine. It may seem like an odd choice but I felt it might be overdoing it to use Peppermint Stick. I like the subtle and slightly rustic feel that the Chocolate Truffle twine adds.

AND I even have a couple SNEAK PEEKS for you! Inside some of the doors I hid some cute little sentiments :D These are just a TINY peek of the My Thoughts Exactly stamp sets we will be releasing on the 28th!

Don't you love it?? Now I need to fill it with goodies for my hubby, he LOVES advent calendars :P

I hope you are all having a great week so far!

I have a couple of reminders on my blog that I would like to share here as well:
