ESAD Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

It's Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration time! It's an exciting time of the year where you can earn free products from Stampin' Up!

Me and my friends at ESAD want to show you what you can do with the Sale-a-bration products and excite your imagination.

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.

You may have come here from Emily's Blog or you have just started here. Either way you are in for a treat to see the creativity and imagination of 24 fellow Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

I'm no.3 on the hop and I'm so glad you could join us!

I decided to make 3 cards today using 3 of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets. The first card is using the gorgeous set Pretty Petites.

This is a set of 8 and you can earn separately the Petite Curly Label punch which co-ordinates with this set.
The next Sale-a-bration set I used was  Madison Avenue. This is a set of 5 and is perfect for stamping some beautiful flowers.
The ribbon and the button are Sale-a-bration items too! Don't you just love them!
The last card I made using Sale-a-bration items in this hop is using Bloomin' Marvelous. This is also a set of 8 and is just stunning.
 The small butterfly from this stamp set is punched out with a punch from our up coming Seasonal Catalogue (a sneak peek for you) and that also layers perfectly with the Elegant butterfly punch from our Annual catalogue.
 All the Designer Series Paper comes from the Sale-a-bration DSP 'Sycamore Street'. Don't you just love Sale-a-bration!

Blue Ribbon Birthday

This is one of those cards that turns out alot different to what you thought it would be when you first start to make a card.
Again I started with some inspiration from Pinterest and as I kept creating the card kept changing.

I was having a play around with some new products too due out here in Australia Feb 1st. I'm loving the honeycomb embossing folder. I'm seeing that get alot of use. Don't you just love the hung up cute clips too.

And before you ask no there isn't a punch to go with the honeycomb embossing folder. All those hexagons were all hand cut.
Better get this in an envelope and in the post to reach my nephew by the end of the week.
Thanks For Looking
Have Fun and Happy Stampin'
