ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

39748466_10157638407219428_6875387366878478336_nHello and welcome to another amazing Blog Hop!

Last months one was just amazing and this one I’m sure is too!


So, if youve been following my blog, you will know that on ESAD blog hops I usually have a theme.

This month I chose Bakers Boxes which are on page 49 of the Holiday Catalogue (HC). They come in a pack of eight and are food safe so you can put all of your Holiday baking and give to your family and friends.



My first box I did that..well I didn’t bake, but found these new NZ biscuits/cookies in the supermarket!

Ideal for a regular market I do. I just added a flap to the top of the box.

I used Homemade Kindness stamp set  (pg 31 HC) and Farmhouse Christmas stamp set (pg 13 HC) and a few items from the Annual Catalogue. Wood Words stamp set – for the wallpaper, Bermuda Bay Striped ribbon , White Embossing paste coloured with Crumb Cake reinker, Pattern party masks, Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake Blends and the new Basic Black Blends (pg 49 HC)

Next up ..I used Pop Up House Thinlits (pg 219 AC) for the top of the box. I used The Wood Textures DSP and Festive Farmhouse Suite for this box and mini album (pg 12-13 HC)

Once again, designed for my Market table. I made several mini albums using the mini pizza boxes last Christmas and they sold really well!

These Mini albums are super simple to make and can be popped into a Page protector afterwards for Memory Keeping.

Basically, its a 12 x12 sheet of cardstock, scored at 4 inches (or 30 cm CS scored at 10cm) and cut as shown. You can however, adhere some of these pages together to make a mini album that doesn’t fold out flat if you wish. mini Esad


The next box was inspired by a fellow demonstrator Deborah Harris and using the Santas Workshop suite (pg 18-19 HC) and the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits (pg 219 AC). The 4 puzzles are cut out from the Santas Workshop Specialty DSP (which is really really really cute!!)

I love that there is also matching Framelits which also match the images on the DSP as well! The puzzles are 10cm x10cm. I also used the Big Shot Embossing mats (pg 221 AC) to make the bottom of the puzzles. I love this new Big shot accessory! Instead of cutting with your dies, you can emboss or cut and emboss!

I thought this box would be great as a stocking stuffer.

So while these boxes are designed for all your fabulous baking, they can be used in other ways!

So that’s it from me..and now we are off to Katrina Duffells Blog.
