Well another day another ESAD BLOG HOP.  Yes you heard that right we have another ESAD Blog Hop and this one is based on the 2013 Seasonal Catalogue Blog Hop.  There are so many fabulous stamp sets and accessories this year it was hard to choose what to work with.  With so many things to choose from in the mini catty I set a challenge for all who are participating to choose 1 item and make this the focus of there projects.

You have come to me from the amazingly talented person that is Karlie Ann 

Remember to leave a comment for the designers to let them know what you think about there designs.

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

For my projects I have chosen the Borders Scoring Plate for the Simply Scored.

I love the borders score plate and hope that you will get some amazing use out of it. 


1. When you buy the borders score board it comes with an overlay.  This overlay has a cling film on both sides remember to pull this off, the overlay will then will sit onto your cardstock better.

2.  Ust a piece of sticky note to hold down your cardstock.

We had the amazingly talented Anna Mathieson in our blog hop, but unfortunately she had to pull out but here are a couple of cards I have made using the stamp set that Anna had chosen, also Narelle Hoggard is making  some cards using this stamp set also.


Now you are off to check out  Narelle Hoggard and her projects.  I hope that you will sit back and enjoy another fun event brought to you by the Fabulous designers from ESAD.

OMG It's been so long.

OMG I can't believe that I haven't posted since October.  So much has been going on in the last few months its hard to remember.

November: Well in November I was working backstage for the Hawera Repertory production of Little Shop of Horrors, was a great show and enjoyed by all.  And a whole bunch of farming stuff, cows milking, mating.  Also had the Hawera A & P show where Alex had his lamb's and did really well again.  A highlight was having the Pouaki Zoo there and seeing Ken & Ken, Camp Mother & Camp Leader.

December:  Christmas, and New Year during this month, as well as the schools PTA treat which the kids really enjoyed.  I also got a bit of crafting done by making our boss's gift this year and they really loved it.  Also in December we has a fantastic BBQ at Fiona & Bart's and it was great, we got to walk through the zoo after hours.  If you can imagine sitting on a hay bale having a drink and in the not too far distance a lion called Aslan gives us a big roar as he is being put to bed, that was one of my highlights if the night.  The other was having our photos taken with the stuffed pet.
