51  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: THE MOST AMAZING ADVENT CALENDAR WITH TUTE!! (complete w/ photos) on: December 10, 2007 08:51:17 AM
I made a few lazy/newbie modifications.  First off, I definitely went with square windows vs. circles.  Also, I tried to use your dimensions but it never grid-ed out like yours.  It was too cramped (Mine are 18 x 24 x 2) I believe.  My windows are about 1.75in and 2.5 in.  I did it a while ago so now I am actually forgetting--plus I am expecting, so I am a lil loopy minded Wink  I opted for various Christmas themed window boxes instead of decorated ornaments since my windows are squared--giving the illusion of presents.  I used simple silver sticker numbers and a satin spray as a finish( It was all I had laying around--prob would have preferred a high gloss.  Mod podge is not my friend, My paper did not take to it at all--in its defence I have never used the stuff before, and I grabbed the matte finish kind vs gloss.  So I used a combo of a glue gun and heavy duty spray adhesive--this is a god send!!!    Your idea, photos, and tut were so appreciated.  I had run out of Christmas gift ideas until this.  Hope you and your hunny are still going strong!

here is a close-up on some of my windows.  I only have a camera phone--thus the bad pics.  PLus I don't know if these pics will post since this is a newbies first  attempt.

I haven't been able to find it yet. Sad  Do you remember if it was for a particular holiday or occasion?

I think it was involved with a postcard or greeting card swap.  No biggie if you all can't find it.  I've re-scoured half of the 67 pages of threads and still haven't found it. ;(

I am brand spankin new, after lurking forever.  Love this site.  Any who, I am looking for a post either under greeting cards or postcards.  I am desperate to find this picture of a simple card with a bird in the middle and framed with a purple and white checker board paper photo frame type boarder.  I know this is random, and I hope I am not doing a party foul by starting a new thread to ask this.  If I am just let the newbie know.  Stanx all.
