Hello everyone, welcome to another ESAD blog hop! This time, myself and 25 other demonstrators, are showcasing projects made with products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

39614205_10157638407229428_9011440728219320320_nI made a wine bottle gift tag, notecard, and cracker all using products from the Joyous Noel suite. For the wine bottle gift tag, I used a base of Sahara Sand, cut at 7x14cm, and scored at 7cm. I used Joyous Noel DSP on the tag, and cut leaf sprigs from Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper. The sentiment was heat embossed with Copper emboss powder on Shimmery White card. Merry Merlot & Copper ribbon finished it off.

For the cracker, I used a 6-1/2″x10″ piece of Joyous Noel DSP and my Envelope Punch Board. The tutorial I used comes from Alison Douglas. You can find it here. Merry Merlot & Copper ribbon tied the ends together nicely.

For the notecard, I used Merry Merlot card. On Shimmery White card, I stamped the images from Peaceful Noel, using Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide ink. The sentiment was heat embossed with Copper emboss powder.


Here’s the finished projects all together – the whole suite matches so perfectly :)

Thankyou for popping in to have a look at my creations. Now it’s off to the talented Jenny Hayward. Click the Next Blog button below to continued the hop.
