Its That Time Again - Blog Hop time






 Whats the time it's blog hop time


 Hello  you have just come from the talented Andrea Buckland and she has shown us some great projects. We are celebrating the 2014-2015 ESAD Annual Catalogue which is packed full of great stamp sets and loads of accessories.



“What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and is a facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends and
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 other.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to leave me a comment with your email address then I'll contact you with information on how to join our group.”




With these two cards I wanted to show what a little upgrading can do to a card .  They are both exactly the same colours and stamp sets Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.


The second card has the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and I have punched an extra decorative Label in Blackberry Bliss, I have also curled up the top flower.



 This card is my first attempt at using our new Blendabilities I have used Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  I had great fun with these and thought the card has come out very well.  The Daffodil Delight cardstock is coloured with our new Dots & Striped Decorative Masks then embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.





 I hope that you enjoy what I have made for you and now it's off the the amazing designer
Sally Williams .  Thank you for coming on the blog hop with me if you have joined here or elsewhere please remember to leave a comment to all of the designers
