ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

TODAY IS THE DAY! The new Annual Catalogue in the Australia and New Zealand starts today! I have see this catalogue for about a month now and have been hanging out to show you all! I LOVE IT!

To mark this fantastic occasion my lovely friends on the Facebook ESAD decided we should do a Blog Hop to showcase some of the new fantastic products.

What is ESAD?

stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an
on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up!

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas & friendship, and we're always there to help and support each other.

So if
you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand,
leave me a comment with your Email address and I'll contact you with information on how to join our wonderful group . 

You may have come here from Gail Kirby's blog or you have just started here. Either way you are in for a treat to see the creativity and imagination of myself and 24 other fellow Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators. So grab a cuppa and get set for the hop!

I'm no.9 on the hop and I'm so glad you could join us!
I'm showcasing the stamp set Notable Notions (Pg 98) and the Designer Series Paper - Etcetera (Pg 153). I won both these items in the Prize Patrol along with the Essentials Hardware Clips (Pg 170) at our recent South Pacific Convention (so exciting). A few other new products will be making an appearance in my creations today, them being Very Vintage Designer Buttons (Pg 169) and Simply Pressed Clay (Pg 167).

So here is what I made...

I started with a gift bag. I CASEd this one slightly from the Annual Catalogue but it makes it easy to dress up a simple brown paper gift bag to make it something special.
Next are 5 cards using different ways to use the stamp set and the Designer Series Paper
Don't you love the vintage feel of the Designer Series Paper?
I really love the colour combination of this one - Baked Brown Sugar, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Pool Party.
I love the button sampler on this one. Those Very Vintage Designer Buttons are beautiful! And don't you love the little flower! That is made with the Simply Pressed Clay!
Lots of strips of the Designer Series Paper for some colour.
I'm loving those Hardware Clips too!
 Everything all together!
I hope you enjoyed what I had to show you in this hop. Click Here for Andrea's Blog, the next stop on our hop. I am sure you will find lots of ideas from Jenny to inspire you. In case you get lost or there are broken links just come back here for the full list of ESAD ladies taking part in this hop.
