Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Good Morning everyone!

I hope you’re ready for the ESAD Blog Hop! Better go grab yourself a cuppa as you’ll be hopping for a while!
What is ESAD you say?
ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) 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.

You may have arrived here from Genelle Littles’s blog, where I am sure you have seen some wonderful creations. If you are starting here, when you have finished looking at my projects, just click on the link at the end of this post to “hop” to the next blog, then keep on “hopping” till you have circled back to Genelle’s blog.

I have four projects to show you, all using some of the exciting new products, including the Big Shot die-cutting machine (new to SU! in Australia) and dies, new cling mount stamps and three new in-colours.

The first is a card using a cute new stamp set, Tote-ally Tess, and two of the three new In Colours – unfortunately, the photos really don’t do the colours justice!

Card: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Stamp Pads: Stazon (Black), Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry
Stamps: Tote-ally Tess, Crazy for Cupcakes, Sprinkles, Sweet Little Sentiments
Other: Big Shot, SU! Top Note Die, dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel Stampin’ Write markers

I decided to make a purse next:

and side view…

and with the chocolate Easter eggs I put in it…

Card: Kraft, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss
Stamp Pads: Sahara Sand, Pretty in Pink
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Other: Big Shot, Scallop Circle Die, Circle Scissor, crop-a-dile, jumbo eyelets, Soft Suede Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon, sticky strip, Crystal Effects, dimensionals, Velcro Dot

I liked this colour combination, so I decided to try something similar for a card:

Card: Kraft, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss
Stamp Pads: Soft Suede, Regal Rose
Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Sincere Salutations
Other: Big Shot, Scallop Circle Die, SU! Sizzlet Little Leaves, Circle Scissor, dimensionals, half pearls (from the Pretties Kit), glue dots

Another purse – no stamping on this one, just one of the lovely papers in the new Cottage Wall DSP!

Side View:

Card: Rich Razzleberry, Cottage Wall DSP
Other: Big Shot, SU! Top Note die, Sizzlets Buttons #5, Crystal Effects, linen thread (dyed with Rich Razzleberry ink), crop-a-dile, jumbo eyelets, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon, bone scorer, glue dot, sticky strip, Velcro Dot

and the notebook and pen I put inside:

Card: Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White, Cottage Wall DSP
Stamp Pads: Orchid Opulence
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Other: scallop border punch, Crystal Effects

Thanks for visiting – I hope you have enjoyed looking at these as much as I enjoyed making them. I will be posting a tutorial on how I made the purses later, if you would like to return in a few days.

To be in the running, email Sharlene (one of the fantastic organizers) at when you have visited and commented on every blog so she can put you in the draw.
