Welcome to my blog. Yes, it's ESAD blog hop time again, and this time we are using products from our new Occasions Catalogue. Items in this catalogue are available from 28th January right through til 30 June.
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 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 other.
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 made some items using new catalogue products.
First up is a topper for the Tag a Bag gift boxes (130927) using the Spiral Flower originals die 129379) and the natural 5/8" Chevron ribbon (132982) and1 1/4" Burlap ribbon (132140). A Tea Lace paper doily (129399) and some pearl jewels completes the topper. I've used the Happy Watercolour (133188 wood, and 133191 clear) and Petite Petals (133152 wood and 133155 clear) stamp sets on the sides of the box. Very cute I reckon and easy to do.
Next is a card made using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch (133324) and Happy Watercolour and Off the Grid (130736) stamp sets, a Tea Lace paper doily and Summer Starfruit stitched satin ribbon (126846). Colours used are Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Summer Starfruit. This Happy Watercolour stamp set is my very favourite stamp at the moment. Just LOVE it.
Then I decided to make this cute little box again using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and DSP from the Kaleidoscope series (132995). Stamp from Perfect Pennants (133227 wood and 133230 clear), the Chevron Border punch (132154) and some ribbon complete it. Again very easy to make and very cute too. Colours are Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry.
Next is a masculine card. I've used the Look Up to Father stamp set (133218) because this is very special to me at the moment. My darling Dad is going through some very difficult health problems and the wording on this is just lovely, don't you think. I've also used the Hexagon Hive thinlits die (132965) and the Hardwood (133032 wood and 133035 clear) background stamp. Colours are Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. another great easy card.
Then I've just made a very simple card using the Watercolour Wonder DSP (132994) and Petite Petals and Flower Shop (130939 wood nd 130943 clear) stamp sets and colours are Whisper White, Canteloupe Crush and Crushed Curry. Some ribbon and pearl jewels complete another item to show you.
Hope you have liked what I have shown you. It's just so easy to make something beautiful using our wonder Stampin' Up products.
