Big Shot Blog Hop

****************************************************************************************************************** I am posting this early as I will be out tomorrow when the blog hop goes live, but all the links won’t be active till 10.00am on Saturday, so please come back then ******************************************************************************************************************

I hope you’re ready for the ESAD Big Shot 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 come here from seeing some wonderful items on Monique’s blog. If you are just starting here, when you have finished looking at my projects, just click on the link at the end of this post to go to the next blog, then keep on “hopping” till you have circled back to Monique’s’s blog.

I decided to use the beautiful Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the Pillow Box die on the Big Shot this time. I love this embossing folder and it has turned out really well on all the different colour cardstock I have used it on, and it looks just as great using either the embossed side or the debossed side.

I got the inspiration for this basket from the lovely Linda.

I used Not Quite Navy, the delicious new Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla cardstock for all of these projects, and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Pillow Box die and Sizzlets Lots of Tags die.

The last item I made was this little purse:

For this I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder again and the Scallop Circle die on the Big Shot and the Circle Scissor.

I hope you enjoyed these – thanks for visiting.

If you leave a comment on every blog in this hop, you will go 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 what beautiful things Nikki Sadler has made!
