Come and join in the ESAD Autumn/Winter Mini Catty Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Today is the day for the ESAD Blog Hop for the new Mini Catty!! I'm excited to be sharing my "Eat Chocolate" creation with you and there's also a little something for you too! :)

So settle back and prepare to taste a little of the creative world of Stampin' Up! here in Australia and New Zealand.

You may be just starting your hop or you may have come from Kim's blog, so you may or may not have already seen the explanation:

What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

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 its 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.

Now, onto my creations:

My clean and simple card:
Don't you love the sentiment ~ "I would give up chocolate, but I'm no quitter!"
I've cut the sentiment and the backing chocolate chip card stock by freehand so don't look too closely lol :)

And my "piece da resistance":

My Easter Choccy Box: 

This is a box that I have designed myself. I have also made my own patterned card stock by stamping the "So much chocolate so little time!" sentiment randomly all over my very vanilla card stock. And of course, I have to use chocolate chip ink and chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.

You can see some more samples made with Designer Series Paper here that I had ready for Easter on this previous post. If anyone is interested in re-creating this box, please email me as I am in the process of writing a tutorial for you and would love to email it to you.

The next stop on the blog hop is Kayleigh's blog.

In summary, there's 16 demonstrator's taking part and here's the entire list for you.... Everyone has a link from & to each blog so you can easily hop from one to the next and do a 'blog lap' at your leisure. If you can make the time to leave a comment for each or even some, I know we would all love to hear from you!
