Midweek Magnolias #41 When the snowman brings the snow

Happy Hump Day, my dear followers and friends.
It's time for a new challenge over at the Midweek Magnolias! In the spirit of the season our challenge this week is:

When the snowman brings the snow!

Pop over to the Midweek Magnolias to see the beautiful creations of the rest of the DT and join in to win a fabulous gift from Magnolia in Sweden!
All you have to do is make a Magnolia creation with a snowman or snow-theme! 
Can't wait to see your creations!

I found a tutorial for this Christmas Calendar on the Pion Design blog made by the talented  Marianne, and I was also inspired by the very talented Copic artist Gro to make this creation. I made it for my daughter, we use it every day to count the days until Christmas eve! Oh I love this season:) 

I used Pion Design papers from the Silent Night 6 x 6 Collection, I used Angel's ChoirGuardian Angels and Nativity Scene. I used dies from Quick Kutz/ Lifestyle Crafts and spellbinders for the date tags. The pearls are from Melissa Frances.
The stamps are from Magnolia; I masked "Tilda with snow heart" with "Winter Forest" and I used "Tilda in christmas coat". I colored them with distress ink pads and markers.  
I used two different Magnolia doohickey's: Snowflake and Spruce (tree) 

The lid comes off, and the box is filled with small tags for December 1st.-24th. 
I used the Pink Vintage Pearl brad , the Ash Rose Shabby Seam binding, The pink Rhinestone Lace, the Snowflake trim, a Bells charm and some dies to decorate it. 

The trees- Spruce- and some of the edges are decorated with Snow Text, and I added some snowflake charms in spirit of this weeks theme. 

Today's little tag: December 12th! I made the tags using QK and spellbinder dies. The numbers are from my old QK alphabet Olivia. 
The snowflakes are covered with Diamond Dust to make them sparkle. This calender is also displayed on the LLC blog today in our Advent Calendar, it's behind window #12:) 

Here's a peak at how it's made. You can find the tutorial HERE
