Welcome to the ESAD "Happy New Catalogue" Blog Hop!
ESAD stands for 'Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators' and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!
We love what we do, and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but with each other as Demonstrators. We run swaps,
challenges, tutorials, product know-how and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when needed.
So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
You might have arrived here from Gemma Coumbe's blog or you might be starting here - either way you can follow the hop all the way around. If you get lost along the way, there's a list of particiants at the bottom of this post, so you can keep on hopping!
Please leave a comment at each blog along the hop - if you do, you can email Leonie (click on her name for the address) and let her know, and she will enter you into the draw for some Blog Candy! (Please note that Demonstrators are encouraged to join in, but are not eligible to win the Blog Candy).
On to my projects!
I absolutely fell in love with the Apple Blossoms set as soon as I saw it. I love how versatile it is, and can imagine all kinds of colour combos with it. On this card, I have used Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake (formerly known as Kraft), Old Olive and Whisper White:
Next I have created a little sticky note holder, using other images from the Apple Blossoms set: On this project I've stamped onto Naturals Ivory cardstock - it creates a different effect that works well with the linen thread and Crumb Cake base cardstock:
Lastly, I have used the For You flower and coordinating Fancy Flower punch to create a simple set of mini cards and a pizza box, with the embellishment and colours inspired by a similar box featured on page 2 of the new catalogue:
I have made a belly band on the pizza box, which the flower is attached to:
I hope you have enjoyed my projects today! I am so excited about the wonderful new Idea Book & Catalogue. Next stop on the hop is the very talented Sharlene Meyer. I know you will love what she has to show you!
Happy hopping, see you soon,
