ESAD 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop! I love the anticipation and excitement surrounding the release of a new annual catalogue and I'm pleased to be 1 of 25 demonstrators taking you on a sneak peek tour today! I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far if you are already hopping on from Cathy's blog, however if you are just startingthe hop, you are in for a treat!!!

I decided to share 2 cards made with the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, but funnily enough, I'm not actually using the ribbon stamp!

As you can see, I've focused on the heart and one of the sentiments - I thought they make nice "thinking of you" cards but could also work well as a sympathy card or just about any occasion.

Now Patty Bennett is the co-designer of this stamp set! She is a US demonstrator who reached the Million Dollar Sales and as a reward, she was able to visit Stampin' Up! Head Office and design a stamp! How amazing is that! She has a story  behind her inspiration of course.

Here's our little ESAD blurb, and please email me if you'd like to know more.

May Class - a last farewell to some retiring products!

Hi Everyone, 

My class this month focussed on a whole host of retiring products.... One of the saddest departures is the Owl Punch! I'm going to miss this punch and the myriad of creatures you can create with it!

Well just a short post from me today, I'll be back with 2 blog hops before the end of the month!

Thanks for looking,

Just Add Ink #360

Hi Everyone,

It's been a long long time since I have created anything for a challenge, and when I looked for my last entry for a Just Add Ink challenge, it was way back in 2013!

Anyway, we don't need to step back in time, instead lets look at Just Add Ink's Challenge #360:

My creation:

The Fairy Celebration Stamp Set has finally found it's way into my collection and this was the first card I made with it! I have stamped some extra images onto Whisper White cardstock and hope to colour them in the next few days...

ESAD 2017 Retirement List Blog Hop

No automatic alt text available.Hi Everyone,

It's time for the ESAD 2017 Retirement List Blog Hop!

If you have been following the hop around, thank you for continuing onto my page! I love joining in the ESAD hops as we all have such a wide range of creativity! Didn't you just love Tanya's creations - she never ceases to amaze!

The retirement list is a bittersweet time of year for the Stampin' Up! annual Idea Book and Catalogue, it means a whole heap of products are retiring but it does mean a massive amount of new products are about to be released!

I decided to showcase the Owl Punch (I'm gonna miss this punch, it's so versatile!!), the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper and the 2015-17 In Colors for my cards:

The Latch Card -

 A close-up of the "Latch" (the tutorial is on splitcoast stampers) -
Bold and Bright with some banners - 

And then I decided to use some of my DSP, the gift box punch board and the Party Pop-up thinlits for my next project -

Of course, I had to add a bit of bling with the silver dazzling details (that's the spotty bit all over the Happy Birthday diecut)! This has been the best way to add glitter to so many of my cards! I'll definitely miss it when my stash runs out.....

Now, you may also be wondering just what at is ESAD is and this should explain some of it:

What this blurb may not convey is just how awesome the ESAD group is! I have been a member for most of my 10yrs as a demo and find it a great source of inspiration, advice and information on all things Stampin' Up! related.

Please continue on the hop to Pauline! She'll be excited to show you her creativity too!
