Check out this Advent Calendar
I used an 11" x 24" frame ($3 from Walmart)

I had no plans on how I wanted it to turn out.
So I started by stamping each date using Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler.

This angle is to try to help you see it better.

After I stamped image onto Very Vanilla I punched them out with the 1" square punch.
Then I chose from the DSP "Be of Good Cheer".  I tried to stay away from the lighter pages so the images would show up better.  I then punched them out with the Postage Stamp Punch.

After they were done I needed to bling it up!  So I layered them over the Red Glimmer Paper and punched them with the 1 3/8" square punch.

For the background, I used the 12x12 DSP and cut an inch off the bottom. (Now you have 12 x 11 piece)
Then I took another piece of 12 x 12 (red) and cut (2) the size 1 1/2" X 11" (for both the left and right sides.)

I then took more of the red DSP and cut another (2) strips, this time the size would be 1" x 11"  (this goes across the top and bottom)

I see now that I could have made it either way 11" high x 14" wide (the way I did it) or 14" high x 11" wide.  Either way works!!  Cuz you have 5 rows of 5!!!
