Quite some time ago, I shared the Father Christmas EPB Box
on my blog, saying at some stage I’d make a video! Last
week I received a note from an Australian Demonstrator
asking if I ever did make a video? I confessed that no
I hadn’t but promised I’d remedy that today!
Last weekend when hubby and I were out and about, I was
looking for some Christmas chocolates to put in my boxes but
I couldn’t find anywhere. In fact, I couldn’t find any Halloween
sweets, tricks or treats. Although Halloween isn’t much of a
celebration in the UK, I would have expected to have seen
some evidence that it’s not that far away.
When I was preparing for the video, I had a look around
to see what I could put in my boxes, and I found some
Easter Eggs and tea bags – not exactly what I had in mind,
but hey-ho, never mind, they’ll do! LOL!!
The next hurdle was that I couldn’t remember how I’d
made the Santa box so had no choice but to pull the box
apart – I was really pleased how nicely it
went back together again!
Using retired cardstock (CS), it took three attempts to work it
out, but I made it! I’m really pleased with the Christmas
boxes I made but I decided I needed to use a light colour
for the video. I decided to go with Shimmery White
CS because I could then use the gorgeous gold
baubles design from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper (DSP).
The dark green DSP on the Cherry Cobbler Box is also from
the All is Bright DSP. The white background DSP on the
other Cherry Cobbler box is from the Dashing Along DSP
which is on promotion during September.
The deal is that workshop orders over £200, earn the hostess
this pack of DSP free. Likewise, if any customers put in an order
over £200, they will also receive a complimentary pack.
That’s about it from me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed
tody’s project, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.

Hi, Lynda. I’m so glad your back on track. Blogger was causing me so much grief in not sending out email notifications to my subscribers, that my subscribers didn’t get the message about the change over unless they went directly to my website. I’m so pleased I made the move to WordPress, but it has meant everyone has to re-subscribe! Hopefully, everyone is back on track as well now! I look forward to seeing your photographs when they’re ready. Happy crafting, JanB. xx
