ESAD December 2018 Blog Hop

Welcome to our ESAD December Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing simple cards/tags and 3D items using products out of the Holiday Catalogue.

You may be starting at my blog or you may have come from Lou’s Blog 

A list of blogs in this blog hop is below if you do get lost. 

I decided to concentrate on the Sincerely Santa Project Kit. I love kits that come in tins! I reuse these as gifts or for storage/display at my fortnightly market.  The other reason I like kits is the no prep work..just stamp and put together. This kit makes 30 tags and does come with an additional Stamp set called Sincerely Santa (148929).

Here’s what this kit makes. I started with 5 packs of tags and packaged them up all ready for my 2 upcoming markets this week!  These took me  a couple of hours to do.  I actually bought two kits ..knowing that I had lots of markets coming up.

The next kit, I decided to do something totally different with ..I used the Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes (131527) to make some gift card holders ..once again for my markets coming up. I used existing stamps I already had.

These are super easy to make. I just adhered the notecard to the envelope and cut off the flap. I decorated the outside Notecard with the various bits from the kit. The gift card is attached to the tag (I used a retired die to make the slits but you could just adhere with tape or a paper clip)? I popped each one in a cello bag and used the tin to keep them in …functional too! 

I had a lot of these left over as they weren’t suitable for the Notecard Gift Card holders. So, I made them into a couple of photo ornaments for the Christmas tree. Perfect as a gift instead of a Christmas card. Just pop a few photos of the family and done! 

Finally, I still had some tags left over so I grabbed some 3×3″ Whisper White envelopes (145829) and made a mini album in a Mini pizza box(144645). The envelopes were old and stuck closed so I just peeled them open and stuck them all together like a train.  I then stamped up some Whisper White cardstock to make my own DSP, added Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Cardstock and decorated simply.  I punched one side with the Tailored Tag Punch (145667) and popped my kit tags inside for journalling on. I couldn’t add my video of this here for some reason (New wordpress editor is challenging me) ..but have popped it on my facebook page.
