Holiday Blog Blitz Begins!
by Jeanne Jachna

It's Jeanne here today and I'm bringing you tidings of great joy!  We're starting our Winter / Holiday blog blitz TODAY!  That means we're sharing projects made with the new products and hoping to inspire your holiday makes!!  We've got lots to show you and lots of prizes too!   You can see all the 2019 Holiday Release products in the store here!    

If you haven't checked out the Fall/Halloween blog blitz  you can still leave comments to enter to win through September 23 - winners will be announced on September 26).   


I made my holiday card look like a present!  I started with a solid double matted card stock background.  I topped the panel with two Grosgrain Ribbon craft dies to look like ribbon over the blue wrapping.

The Holiday Joy craft die comes with an outline word die as well as a shadow background die.   That means you can use the word with or without the background making it more versatile.  I love the little cut out leaves that adorn the ends!   I filled in their centers to add some extra color. 
The Delicate Poinsettia die set contains three die cuts.   I cut each layer from a different shades of red and stacked them with the lightest in the center.  I had some assorted size half pearls perfect for embellishing the flower center but some NUVO Drops would work great too! 

And now the part you've been waiting for.  The prize today is the Delicate Poinsettias craft die.

I really appreciate the generosity of the Memory Box company/family! So many designers share their ideas and there are frequent opportunities to win samples of new products. I make cards for friends and family only, so the occasional win helps me justify the indulgence of my guilty pleasure....

Fabulous poinsettia and wonderful present look a like. Love those beautiful bold colours you used. Hugz

Gorgeous card! Love the poinsettia and the colors you used to create it! So pretty with the grosgrain ribbon die too!

That 'grosgrain ribbon' wrapped gift is gorgeous adorned with the poinsettia, Jeanne ... love the pearly centre of the bloom!

What a bright and beautiful card! Love the take of gift box or present :)

I’ve been eyeballing those poinsettia dies because I love the detail. The golden pearls finish it beautifully. Your gift-wrapped card definitely sparks joy with your fun design.

This is a wonderful release--lots for my wishlist! The grograin die is genius! I can't get enough poinsettias, so would love to win! Great card!
