Occasions Blog Hop

Well I can't believe that I haven't posted on my blog since October 2013 I have been so neglectful LOL.

Well it's time again for another wonderful ESAD Blog Hop, this one using the Occasions Catalogue.  There are so many wonderful stamp sets, ribbons, designer papers etc in this catalogue that everyone participating has chosen one FOCUS item then can use embellishments to make there designs come to life.

You have come here from the talented Libby Dyson who always amazes me with her talented designs.

What is ESAD?

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

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD
Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge,
ideas & friendship, and we're always there to help and support each

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 today I have chosen Peaceful Petals, I love flowers and just had to get this stamp set to use.  I have used sponging on the first two cards starting with the lightest colour then using a darker colour for the centre.

 These next cards were a bit of an experiment, I wanted to push the colour boundry's I have used Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and backed them on Strawberry Slush, I think it works.

 I have had some doileis for a while, not knowing what to with them, so I have sponged this one in Crisp Cantaloupe.  I then scrunched it up to give more of a 3-d look.

 Now it is off to see what Emily Campbell has in store for us today Emily is another talented designer who produces beautiful designs.

Thank you for taking part in the blog hop today and please  remember to leave a comment or all the designers as they love having feedback on there projects.
