:REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Vintage Hip Christmas Crafts from Ella Publishing

Since the inception of Ella Publishing earlier this year, I have been very impressed with the quality and variety of eBooks that they have launched.

Just in time for the holidays, they have a wonderful new eBook perfect for those that wish to create projects with a festive flair.

Vintage Hip Christmas Crafts is written by Margie Romney-Aslett. Romney-Aslett has been a well-known name in the scrapbooking industry for many years and I love the fact that she brought in her daughters, Megan and Brooke, to help provide inspirational projects for this mini idea book!

The eBook includes 9 projects including step-by-step instructions with detail shots and complete supply lists. They outline exactly what to gather, how to prepare, and finally, how to assemble each project. These elements are often overlooked in many idea books, yet they are so very important to any crafter who wishes to replicate a craft project.

There are 3 sections - layouts, garlands, and gift items.

One aspect that I love about this book is that each section includes 3 projects. Each project within the section progresses in level of skill and difficulty. The are labeled as 'Super Simple', 'Sorta Simple' and 'Artsy Fartsy' so there really is something for everyone!

One of my personal favorite projects in the book is one featuring a holiday garland made using circle punches. I do love my circle punches and this would be one great way to give them a workout for sure!

At the end of this 26 page eBook, there are also three bonus holiday cards as well as several templates to offer you further assistance in creating the projects in the book.
