ESAD New Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD New Idea Book & Catalogue Blog Hop!! On this journey you will see loads of new products that have just been released, (so maybe grab a cuppa and a wishlist & pen too lol). If you are already on the journey, you will have come from Michelle's page.

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

As soon as I saw the "Something for Christmas" Stamp (only $19.95!!) I straight away knew I wanted it, and with the festive season fast approaching, that want turned into a need!

Here's my first card using the NEW In Colours Pool Party & Indigo Island with a touch of Whisper White. I've also used some Shimmer Paint, which is new to my craft stash although it did appear in the last IBC.

I have also been lucky enough to play with the new Pennants Die (thanks to my friend and downline Courtney!!) and I made this pennant banner for the Byford Spring Fair on Sunday. Now to work out where to hang it on the day lol :)

And part of the Pennant Die are these doilies that I have turned into a flower garden at the base of my new display stand.

Just need to add some leaves...
Now if you are taking part in the blog hop, you can be in the running for some blog candy if you live in Australia or New Zealand (ie: a prize!!). To enter, you need to visit and comment on everyone's page, then email Sharlene, advising you name, email and location. If you are a winner, you will be contacted for your postal details. Please note, demonstrators are not eligible to win the Blog Candy.
