9/10 Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue Blog Hop!

Hi there!  Welcome to my stop on the ESAD Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue Blog Hop!  ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) Demonstrators and it's an online group for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!  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 group.

If you've been following the Blog Hop, then you've come from seeing the gorgeous work of Corinna Buchan.  If you haven't seen any other blogs yet, just keep hopping till you get back here!  We are again offering Blog Candy for our Blog Hop. What you need to do is complete the blog hop until you get back to me. Once you've visited and commented on every blog then you will need to email Sharlene at who will then put your name into the draw for the blog candy. There will be one winner from New Zealand and one winner from Australia.  Please note, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are not eligible to win the Blog Candy.

On to the creations I have to share with you!  I have a few different projects, so I've kept the details very brief.  If you'd like any more details about any of the work I have here on anywhere on my blog, just leave a comment or send me an email.

I'd like to start with a set that I was thrilled to see when I first saw the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue - A Little Treat - isn't that hot air balloon image gorgeous?  The Very Vanilla ribbon at the top is the pull for a sliding door so the card doesn't have to be destroyed to get to the Jaffas!

Stamp set - A Little Treat
Cardstock - Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Very Vanilla
Inks - Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence
Accessories - Sweet Treat cup, 1 & 3/4" circle punch, Big Shot, Top Note die, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Very Vanilla ribbon

This little project was so quick and easy to whip up, and I think it's pretty cute! 

Stamp set - Very Vintage Jumbo wheel
Cardstock - Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry
Inks - Rich Razzleberry
Accessories - Big Shot, pillow box die, Heart to Heart punch, Crystal Effects, tombow glue

Another super easy project!  These Pendant Note cards are already die cut for you, so all you need to do is embellish.  I decided to show a really simple way to use these cards, and that's just by using some Designer Series Paper inside the card so it shows through.  Easy!

Stamp set - none!
Cardstock - Kraft Pendant Notes
Designer Series Paper - Urban Oasis
Inks - Versamark
Accessories - Black embossing powder, heat tool,

Here are a few gift cards using Fox and Friends.  I orginally posted it here, but thought I'd re-post it with my Blog Hop creations!
