On the second day of Christmas . . .

Welcome to Day Two of's 3rd Annual 25 Days of Crafting Showcase!  Each and every day from December 1st through December 25th the 25+ Design Team members will be bringing you tons of holiday inspiration, daily freebies and weekly giveaways.

One of the free files that Melin is giving away today is a printable 2013 calendar.  She is also  giving away a wonderful gift tag cutting file and super cute snowman digi stamp, too!  I used the calendar and the snowflake from the tag for my "Winter Sparkle" themed project today.

My calendar page measures 8 1/2" wide by 5 1/2" tall (half of an 8 1/2" by 11" piece of card stock) and is a scrap left over from a 12 x 12 piece of a Recollections paper pack.  All of the snowflakes and text pieces are cut from plain white card stock.  Here are the details:
  • Month cut using Cricut's Designer's Calendar at 1 1/2" tall.
  • Year cut using SCAL and Berkley font.
  • Snowflakes are cut from Cricut's Accent Essentials, Joys of the Seasons and Cake Basics  cartridges in various sizes ranging from 1 1/4" to 2".
  • The snowflake in the middle on the right side of my calendar is part of the freebie cutting file available today at
  • I used several snowflake buttons from my stash as well as some iridescent and satin ribbons.
  • All of the snowflakes were given their "sparkle" using Stickles.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you'll head on over to and check out what the other Designers whipped up.  Make sure you download the free files and leave a comment to qualify for the weekly giveaway.  See you back here tomorrow for Day Three!
