I had purchased a bottle of perfect pearls and couldn't get rid of the chocolate kiss look it ended up with because of the sharp tip on the end of the "beads." So I was searching the T-Shirt aisle at Joann's and found these Beads In a Bottle by Tulip. I love experimenting so I bought a package, which comes with four tubes, took them home and found they worked great on paper and left a round little bead, no kiss! Soon after I heard Perfect Pearls altered their formula and the do indeed work great now, but finding a wide selection of colors can sometimes be difficult if you don't have a scrapbook store close by.
So I have been purchasing these Beads in a Bottle and love how they work on my pages!

I made this paper advent calendar using the kit off SVGCuts.com: http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=227
The first one was a little off and Betsy told me she had adjusted the length of some pieces to correct it. So I found this fabulous two sided Christmas paper by K&Co and created the final one, with adjustments, and love how it turned out.
Since the chocolate finds a hard time sticking around, I filled each day with a coupon for the kids. (Thanks for another great idea Betsy!) Day one was for staying up and extra half hour, day two for hot cocoa at Starbucks. So fun and great to spend a little time doing something fun with the kiddos each day!
