ESAD 2016 Holiday Catalogue Favourite Products Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to my blog. It is all quite exciting as this is my first blog hop so, fingers & toes crossed I get all the hyperlinking and everything else formatted correctly! I won't be able to call it a hop if you can't move onto the next demonstrators blog!

Hands down my favourite Holiday Catalogue product is the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set & coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. Being a new demonstrator with a wish list a mile long I decided that I was only going to get one Christmas set this year and boy have I made it work hard!

In this  months card classes one of the projects my crafters have been making are some simple but fun and cute tags using the Cookie Cutter bundle. They are so quick and easy to make! The tag is punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and decorated along the bottom with strips of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape, done in a flash!



With your little characters you can keep them simple or go to town decorating/colouring them, I have lots and lots to make so I've kept it simple. I love the Santa stamped on Crumb Cake Cardstock in Cherry Cobbler with just a bit of clear or gold Wink of Stella to highlight. Really simple but so effective. Finish of your tags with some ribbons threaded through the top and voila!

I've also made numerous cards with the set, way too many to show you in just one post and not just Christmas cards. I love that the Teddy Bear can be used throughout the year, not just at Christmas time, more bang for your buck! Here is a card that could be used for a new baby or child's birthday (just change the sentiment up).


I've used one of the four Seasonal Decorative Masks to make my own designer paper. In this example I have sponged Craft Stampin' Ink through the mask onto Crumb Cake cardstock. Love, love, love this look! The Calypso Coral circle is embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder and the sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set and punched out with the coordinating Duet Banner Punch.

All my Christmas cards this year are made with the Cookie Cutter Bundle and with five cute characters, you can't get bored. We also have plans to make Christmas banners and bonbons/crackers decorated with these cute little guys too. So if you haven't already got this set, you seriously need to reconsider!

Thank you so much for visiting me! I would love it if you followed my blog, I'm only starting out but hope to post more and more regularly. Over to the right and towards the top of my page you can subscribe by entering your email.
