The 12 Days of Christmas!

Happy December, everyone! We hope that you are all getting into the “Christmas Spirit”… we’ve been busy busy busy getting ready for this month as we are doing the 12 Days of Christmas with you all!



This month is going to be tons of fun…




Everyday we will share with you a Christmas project accompanied by photos and a short video-how-to. We have lots of fun ideas to share!! And that isn’t all…




We will also be doing a Christmas giveaway EVERYDAY of fun, holiday scrapbooking products. Thank you soooooooooo much to this month’s sponsor, Chantel Mernickle, owner of Treasured Memories here in Edmonton. Chantel has donated tons of fun stuff that you can have a chance to win. All you have to do is post a comment to be eligible for that days drawing. Sound good?



And one last thing…




We still want to see the Goodie Gallery filled with inspiration this month, so send us jpegs of any holiday projects that you’ve created, or if you’ve made one of the projects that we will be sharing with you, then send us a picture of that, too! (Remember, our email address is: thegoodieboxgirls@hotmail.com). At the end of the 12 days, we’ll be randomly picking one person from the Goodie Gallery to win yet another Christmas giveaway. Whoo hoo!



So, let’s get going with Day 1!






“Merry and Bright Garland” by Talia Audenart







Have fun using chipboard in different shapes and sizes to create a garland of your own. Pull out any papers and embellishments that are Christmasy to create a garland of your very own!


And here is our “Day 1 Giveaway”



Daisy D’s cardstock stickers, chipboard titles and rhinestones…so cute and totally getting me in the mood to scrap! Thanks, Treasured Memories!


So if you want a chance to win today’s prize then post a comment below (be sure to include your name) and we’ll be announcing the winner tomorrow morning along with Day 2’s project and video!!!



I have to say, I am super excited about this month…make sure you check back daily to see all that is going on. Hope your day is Merry and Bright!!
