Happy Sale-A-Bration!

ESAD Blog Hop Day

Welcome to a very exciting day!  It's the start of Sale-a-bration today, and to celebrate, we are blog hopping with the ESAD girls!

ESAD Blog hop header

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. 

If you're not a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator then you should be!  It's so much fun!  There is even a great join the SU! family promotion during Sale-a-bration with a discounted starter kit and a FREE stamp set - any one you want!!

What are you going to see on our blog hop today?  Sale-a-bration Items!  Twenty-three of us have designed and created lovely new projects using the gorgeous products you can get for free during Sale-a-bration.

I have used the delicious Designer Series Paper Pack : Everyday Enchantment and created a tri-shutter card to show you.

Everyday Enchantment Tri-Shutter Card (1)

The paper is so vintagey, but in lovely bright colours, and I adore how it co-ordinates with the stamp set You Are Loved, from the Summer Mini Catalogue.

Here are some of the little close up details for you :

You can see I've had lots of fun inking up the stamps with my Stampin' Write Markers for multi-coloured stamping. It's one of my favourite techniques as the results are always different and surprising!
