New Catalogue Blog Hop

I hope you’re ready for the ESAD New Catalogue Blog Hop!

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 it’s 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 after seeing some gorgeous projects on Jo Weedon’s blog. 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 Jo’s blog.

I have used the brand new set, Contempo Christmas, to create a gift box with cards, a simple scrapbook page and some hanging baubles.

The gift box:

and inside:

The cards:

The page:

and the baubles – unfortunately, they weren’t very photogenic (or maybe it’s just my poor photography?); they looked much prettier in real life, especially the gold which came out looking more like Crumb Cake in the photos – maybe they’ll look better hanging on a tree!

Thanks for visiting – I hope you enjoyed these projects.

If you leave a comment on all the blogs in this hop, you will be eligible to be in the draw for some blog candy (items or products donated by some of the participating demonstrators!) . To be in the running, just email Leonie at when you have visited and commented on every blog so that she can put you in the draw (customers only please, demonstrators not eligible!).

Now click here to see some lovely ideas from Karen Southwell!

    The gift box is fantastic and the cards are so gorgeous, not to mention the baubles. I’m not a scrapbooker but I love the page – could use the set out for another card.
