ESAD Autumn/Winter Blog Hop

Finally the day that we have been waiting for has arrived, the launch day for the 2012 Autumn/Winter Mini and you all know what that means over here at ESAD. BLOG HOP TIME!!!!!!!!!!

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do 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 it is 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.

I have been so overwelmed by this new mini catalogue and I thinkk that you are all going to love it.  To say that when I did me wish list I was going to spend LOADS of $$$$$, so I am just going to get something every month. 

But today we have 25 FABULOUS designers for you with some amazing designs, and you have come here from the fantastic blog of Kelly Nelson so I can't wait to sit down and hop from one blog to the other.  Remember to leave a comment for everyone as they have put a huge amount of time into creating these wonderful deisgns for us all.

Here is what I have created for you today:

Stamp Set: Love and Laughter
Cardstock: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla
Inks: Versamark, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Black Embossing Powder, Black Satin Ribbon, Edgelits Dies - Adorning Accents, and Textured Empressions Embossing Folder - Adorning Accents

I wasn't going to buy this stamp set but have since fell in LOVE, for me I can see many uses with the words "Cherish the MOMENTS" this could be used in a variety of Scrap booking pages (not just baby pages). So the next two cards are made with Baby Prints one for a boy and one for a girl.


Stamp Set: Baby Prints
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Blushing Bride, Island Indigo, Pool Party
Inks: Regal Rose, Island Indigo
Accessories: Dotted Scallop Border Punch

Here is a card made with the new Framelit Dies - Labels Collection, it comes with six dies the largest being approx 13.3 cm  wide and coordinates with Apothecary Art.

Stamp Set: Apothecary Art
Cardstock:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Inks: Early Espresso,
Accessories: Vintage Wallpaper & Square Lattice Embossing Folders, Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, Brayer

 Now you can keep on hopping and hop on over to the amazing talent that is Alisa Tilsner
 So grab a coffee and keep on hopping and remember to leave a comment for everyone.
