The new Annual Catalogue in the Australia and New Zealand is here! It has been live in the South Pacific for nearly a month now and I hope you all love it as much as I do!
To mark this fantastic occasion of a new catalogue my lovely friends on the Facebook ESAD group decided we should do a Blog Hop to showcase some of the new fantastic products.
You may have joined me from Norelle Targato's blog or started here with me. Either way you are in for a treat to see the creativity and imagination of myself and 23 other fellow Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators. So grab your beverage of choice, get comfortable and get set for the hop!
What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and is a Facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends and
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 then please feel free to leave me a comment with your email address then I'll contact you with information on how to join our group.
I'm no. 22 on the hop and I'm so glad you could join us!
The cards that I have made for the hop are using some of the products that, when I first saw the new Annual Catalogue, I thought I have to have that!
The first card uses the I Love Lace background stamp (Pg 175 Annual Catalogue)
I love all things pretty and lacy and this ticks both of those boxes! Don't you just love the new In Colour Lost Lagoon too!
I embossed the stamp with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. It took me a few go's to get it because the stamp is so detailed but it looks stunning embossed! I also embossed the Birthday Wishes sentiment. I put that on vellum so you could still see the I Love Lace stamp and it wasn't covered up too much.
The next card uses some of the paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack (Pg. 185 Annual Catalogue)
It's pretty, its girly, it's flowery. All the things I love.
There are 48 sheets in the stack: 4 of 12 double-sided designs. The stack measures 11.4cm x 16.5cm so it is perfect for card fronts and smaller projects.
The last product for my blog post that I went WOW about in the new Annual Catalogue is the Decorative Masks (Pg. 205 Annual Catalogue)
You place the mask over your project and you can either spritz, sponge, trace or emboss with the mask to create beautiful background.
I've sponged the Gold Encore Metallic Ink on the mask with a sponge dauber. To keep the gold theme going I cut out the star with the new Star Framelits and then stuck down the Gold Sequins from the Sequin Trim under the star cut out.
It's so sparkly!
I hope you enjoyed what I had to show you in this hop. Click Here for Clare's Blog, the next stop on our hop. I am sure you will find lots of ideas from Clare 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.
