ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop 2024

Yippee!! Today I am blogging with a few of my OTHER stamping friends, and together we are exploring the new 2024-2025 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, that just came out this month - MAY 2024.   If you have come to my blog from Denise Buetler's blog, thank you for hopping over!    ESAD Header
Our Stampin' Up! annual convention is called On Stage, and this year we gathered in Melbourne in March. It is always so GOOD to see some of these long time stamping friends face to face - I haven't seen many of these ladies since before Covid, so it was extra special.

One of the treats of On Stage is to get a sneak peek of our new catalogue, and I think every single one of us fell in love with the Take To The Sky Suite and the fantastic demonstration we saw.

I had a big workshop this weekend with up to 12 participants, so I wanted to make a card which showed off the product suite, but was also easy enough for that many people to make in about an hour. So I chose a very simple easel card, and I precut several of the pieces using my die-cutting machine and paper trimmer.

So then the participants just had to do some simple stamping, die-cut a couple of pieces themselves and assemble the card, with a little bit of assistance where needed - mainly cleaning stamps and handing out Stampin' Dimensionals.

I really enjoyed using these products - they coordinate so well that it's easy to create a good looking card.  Because there were so many attendees in my workshop, there were three different sheets of the Take to the Sky Designer Series Paper for the card fronts. Each one of them worked well because of the coordinating designs and colours.

I hardly ever make masculine cards, but I really enjoyed using these products, and I can't wait to find time to make some more different variations of this project.

Now it's time for you to go and see what else the talented ESAD card makers have created. The NEXT button to follow the blog hop journey is down below - but before you go there, just in case you are wondering what ESAD even is . . . . . :

I haven't seen many cards mad with this suite, so its particularly lovely to see it in the hop. I think the easel card was a greet idea for this card.
