ESAD Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Time for another fantastic Blog Hop from the wonderfully talented group of ESAD ladies and this time we are featuring all the fabulous new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue.  I had a very hard time choosing what to show you in my post today but I did decide to keep it simple and show you a project that I have been wanting to make for a long time.

This cute little box is made from one sheet of DSP and I used a piece from the super cute ‘Snow Festival’ DSP pack.  We are going to make this little box as part of our stamp club next month because it is just so easy to make and you get the base, the lid, the wrap and the bow all from one sheet, there is still paper left over too if you want to cut out a gift tag and make some ‘nesting’ for the box.  I know, awesome!  Anyway, what I have put in my box?

Well I made a set of super easy and fast gift tags using the Scentsational Seasons Stamp Set and the matching Holiday Collection Framelit Dies.  I took my colour scheme from the DSP and used some Primrose Petal, Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler and Baja Breeze to make bases for the tags.  I made two tags in each colour and used the Apothecary Accent Framelits, using the rectangular shaped framelit and cutting off one of the rounded ends to make only one round end and leaving a flat end on the other side (hmmm does that make sense?).  

I mixed and matched the colours and the images so that no too tags were the same.  

The ‘to’ and ‘from’ are from the ‘Fabulous Phrases’ Stamp Set and you know how much I love that set!  I added the little colon at the end using my matching Stampin’ Write Markers.  A little Dazzling Diamonds on the coco cup and some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the gingerbread men and I was almost done.  All I had to do was loop some Whisper White Baker’s Twine through the hole I punched in the end of the tag and they were ready.

Thanks for stopping by and if you are following the hop along in order you may have already seen 23 other amazing blogs but if you are only just getting started then continue over to Sam’s Blog for more Holiday Catalogue goodies.  If you are not too sure where you have been or who is playing along check out the full list of blog hop participants at the end of this post.
