Midnight Spell Advent Calendar

Wow oh wow. I think I am recovered from CHA!! Yesterday was a Utah State holiday so I got an extra day in the weekend. Loved relaxing & spending time with my little family this weekend. I needed it so bad! But today is a new day, ready to tackle some new projects & super excited about some stuff coming my way!! 

I wanted to share with you the class that I taught last week in Chicago! We had so much fun and I knew you would want to see what we made :)

This group was hilarious, I think I laughed at least 1/2 of the 2 hour class!!!

Teaching is my passion! I love any chance I get to do it :)

So here is what we made!

It is a hanging Halloween "Trick or Treat" Advent Calendar made out of the Midnight Spell Stack. Each little envelope holds either a "trick" which your family has to do, or a "treat" of a little candy that you put in. So fun!

Here are the instructions and the two downloads! Have fun creating!! Tomorrow is your last day to enter into this month's Stack-a-holic Challenge!! I will post the winners on Friday!!


  1. It's great that you've had some time to recover. Did you get any scrapping done for yourself?
    Thanks for posting this, looks like a fun project. Thanks for the little extras too. the tricks and numbers make it that much easier! And if I see someone walking like Frankenstein or riding a broom down the street I won't think they're crazy, lol.

  2. Super cute calendar! Can not wait to try it, thank you for the files!

  3. That is such a cute idea, I'm sure kids would get a kick out of it.

  4. This is the most creative advent calendar! I am going to make one for my kiddos.
    So happy to see you again at CHA. I told my hubby we needed to move to your town so we could be friends ;)
    Have a great Tuesday!
