Well as promised here are some photos of my 'Christmas Countdown Calendar' Christmas in July class. Everyone received half a kit of the 'Christmas Cheer' Simply Scrappin' Kit and they made the countdown calendar, a card and a box to put the countdown dates in.

Here's a close up of the Christmas Tree.

I made two calendars and the girls chose which design they wanted to make. Here's the other design and it's really very cute. After I uploaded it I realised that it doesn't have the covered clip or date on it ... sorry!

and here's a close up of Santa.

The whole class consisted of Stampin' Up! products apart from a Nestabilities Labels 2 die which was used on the Christmas Tree Calendar, a Celco Bulldog Clip from Woolworths and the silver bells and silver stars which were purchased from Spotlight.

I also used quite a few Stampin' Up! punches:

Full Heart,  Heart to Hearts; 1/4", 1/2", 1.1/4", 1.3/8" Circles and 1.3/4" Scallop Circle, Large Tag, Ornament, Boho Blossoms and the Five Petal Flower Punches.

and of course ...Box No. 2 Bigz Die, Dazzling Diamonds and 5/8" Marina Mist Grosgrain Ribbon. BTW the "Days until ..." words were printed from the computer. I think that covers everything!
