Stampin' Up! Advent Calendars Workshop! So much fun!

Today was the first of my Stampin' Up! Advent Calendar Workshops. I have another group coming in October too.
While they were busy working on their Christmas ones I whipped up a Halloween one. So much fun!

I pre-cut everything out for them. They used our Simply Scored Scoring Tool to do their scoring. Eveything else was precut and punched. I also used the Peekaboo Frames -Shelli's exclusive Stampin' Up Sizzix Die for the Peek-a-boo ones

Stamps used were  25 and Counting Stamp set and Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set
Paper used: Frostwood Lodge DSP, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Early Expresso Card Stock. A variety of punches were used. 


My Halloween One



I used Stampin' Up! Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp set and Batty for You Stamp Sets. 
Papers used: Frightful  Site Desiger Paper, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant and Basic Black Cardstock and a variety of punches. So much fun to make!

Here are the girls from Group 1 Advent Calendar Class
