ESAD Happy New Catalogue Blog Hop

I hope you’re ready for the ESAD Happy new Catalogue Blog Hop!

I can't think of a better way to start the off the life of a new Stampin' Up!® Idea Book and Catalogue than with a blog hop. 

The members of ESAD have put together 25 ideas for using products new to the new Idea Book.

You may have come from the blog of the super talented Leonie Shroeder, but if not start here and keep clicking through the links at the end of each post until you reach my blog again.  That way you'll know that you've seen them all.

Here are my projects using 'Contempo Christmas' and 'Woodgrain' stamp sets.


I've put together an invitation and a gift box set that you could use for your Christmas functions.  These just use ink, stamps and a bit of linen thread, ribbon and glitter to make them easy to put lots together in a hurry.



Here's a closer look at the card.


and a closer look at the little gift box.  Made from a piece of 6"x 3" card or DSP it's scored and held together with the ribbon.  The ornament is held on the front by a small amount of adhesive on the linen thread so you could use it use a gift tag.  You can find the instructions for the box here.
