Last Days to Sale-a-Brate

A Blog Hop with ESAD

Sale-a-bration Picture

I can't believe there is just one week left of Sale-a-bration 2016. The Sale-a-bration gifts this year have been so much fun to create with! Even though it's sad that Sale-a-bration is coming to an end, it is a real pleasure to get out some of my crafty items and do some creating, and it's even more of a pleasure to use my favourite Sale-a-bration gift this year and show you what I have been creating with it.

If you have just started blog surfing here, you may not know that I am participating in a blog hop tonight with ESAD.

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and is a Facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends and blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas & friendship and we're always there to help and support each other.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to leave me a comment with your email address then I'll contact you with information on how to join our group.

My most loved Sale-a-bration product has been the WILDFLOWER FIELDS DESIGNER SERIES PAPER.

I can't get enough of this paper, have used it heaps and when we talked about this blog hop, I definitely wanted to pull out the pretty designs, patterns and colours in this paper and play with it some more.

For those who follow my blog or Pinterest boards, you will know that I have been making of lot of cute little bags with matching note cards in them. These were originally inspired by an awesome YouTube video by Caroline Hallet - a talented demonstrator from the UK. I have made stacks of them now on various themes and colour schemes.

Here is what I created for the blog hop.

My sister and I both love teapot and cup stamps and dies and when we saw CUPS 7 KETTLE FRAMELITS DIES in the current Occasions Catalogue, there was no doubt it was going to join my collection. I just love it so much with the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.

The Calypso Coral Tea Pot and Old Olive Cup have been stamped using Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, heat embossed with Whisper White Embossing Powder. I haven't pulled out the Tea Lace Doilies for quite some time so it was lovely to add bits of them as finishing touches too.

Don't you think this would make a really cute gift for someone special?
