SAB blog hop header 2013

It’s time for the ESAD blog hop!!

What is ESAD? ESAD stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. 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 is 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.

There are 25 talented Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, who have created lots of different projects using the amazing range of free products that you can earn during Sale-a-bration. You may have come from the talented Juliette Chapman’s blog . A list of all the demonstrators participating in the hop will be at the end of this post.

I decided to make a couple of items. First up, I did a Mojo Monday Sketch, No. 274. You can check out the sketch here.

The first card I did was nice but I thought it need something else. So I used the Vine Street embossing folder and Voila! Awesomeness!!!! What do you think?

I’ve been able to have a play with some of the SAB products and they are all so nice!! My team has been doing a swap and I’ve been receiving gorgeous cards in the mail (so much better than bills!!). I was inspired by the talented US demo, Mary Fish (check out her blog here).

I used the 1″ square punch to punch out the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. I did two squares using the new Vine Street embossing folder (I love embossing!!). I then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Pretty Petites stamp set and punched it out using the Petite curly label punch. It is one of the cutest punches ever!!! I used the Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack as well.

I hope the girls in the team like their swap!!
