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.

7 June 2011 – Challenge!!

Hi everyone!!  Hope you are having a great week.

I visited my grandparents and aunty today.  We had a lovely lunch together, thanks Pop!!  My Aunt is getting ready to head off to the Scrapbooking convention this weekend.  I’d love to go but I’d be tempted to buy too much!!!  We had a look through my swap cards from the recent SU! convention and it inspired me to make a card this afternoon.

I thought I would try a couple of challenges to get me going.  I found the Inkspirations Colour Challenge here and the Sunday Sketch and Stamp here.

At the moment, my favourite embossing folder is the new lattice one!  I just love it.  I thought it would make a nice background to my stamps.  I think this would make a good male birthday.  (Hmm, who’s is next!!)

Stamps:  Bring on the Cake, A Slice of Life

Paper:  Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White

Ink:  Not Quite Navy

Accessories:  Big Shot, Lattice embossing folder, Birds and Blooms Scallop circles sizzlet, Regals buttons.
