Sharing what we love - it's the ESAD New Catalogue blog hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD New catalogue blog hop!! It's like Christmas in the world of Stampin' Up! at the moment, the new catalogue has just started this month and runs for the next year. All the demonstrators I know love the anticipation of a new catalogue and my customers aren't far behind in their excitement either.

Today I've decided to share a balloon card with you.... This card is fast and easy and would look great in a range of colours or designer series papers!

I've stamped my own background with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp and used the new Thoughtful banners stamp set and co-ordinating punch.

My next card uses the Endless birthday Wishes stamp set and some of my all time favourite ribbon - the white Organza ribbon (which for some reason I have several rolls of it!)

Stay tuned in the next few days to see how I tweaked this card and used it at my card class.

Please move onto the next person on our hop - Carolina, enjoy!!

I decided to showcase the Swallowtail stamp set and try out some designs I've been meaning to try for ages! I've added colour with 2 of the retiring In Colors

Swallowtail with a touch of Hello Honey

Swallowtail with Blackberry Bliss

Classic black and white

Now I've done these, I'm thinking about doing the same designs in a whole heap of colours!! They were quick and easy but satisfying to create at the same time.

I hope you enjoy our blog hop - next stop is Nicole!

Tomorrow OnStage takes place in Brisbane, Sydney and several locations globally. It's rather exciting and whilst I cannot attend, I looking forward to hearing any announcements from some demo friends that were able to go. I'm sure if you do a google search next week using #OnStage2016 youl'll be bound to find some of the goss! ;)

On the homefront, we are just finishing up the 1st week of school holidays, which has meant I've had some time off work too. It's been great taking my girls to swimming lessons, 5 days of lessons and they passed so they are thrilled! Next week we've got a full day of card making planned with my Mum and that means 4 generations as my Nana will be there too. I'm hoping to squeeze in some 'me' time in my craft room and have something to share with you next week. I've been checking out a few new techniques on pinterest so hopefully they will work out and I can photograph them for you!
