Welcome to the ESAD Blog Hop!! If you are coming from Sharlene’s Blog, Welcome! If you are starting here, that’s ok too!!  Keep hopping through and remember to leave some comment love for everyone! We all like some lovin’!

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!

My project for the Blog Hop is a little Mini Album using the divine new papers available when you spend $100!! Oh yeah, and did I say those papers are FREE?!  The papers, called Everyday Enchantment are divine! Not to mention the matching Ribbon and Brad pack that you can get for free as well!!  Soooo pretty!!  Anyway, my project is a little Mini Album.  I used some of the photos from Lara’s 3rd Birthday Celebrations. I also used the matching stamp set (FREE as well with every $100 purchase – I love SAB) called Fresh Vintage.

You can see by the photo below that each “double” page was different sizes. which sort of stops it from just flopping open. Sort of.

I started with a base of Chipboard measuring 6 x9″.  The pages are all cut from the backing sheets of DSP.  They vary in sizes, I started with them at 6×9″ and then kind of cut them so they were off centre to each other.

I hope that you like my creation using the new DSP from the Sale A Bration Catalogue!  Don’t forget, if you would like to place an order I can be reached via email at any time!

Next stop on your ESAD hop is Joanne Kechagias

Until next time!
Happy creating!!!
