ESAD Christmas in July Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD Christmas in July Blog Hop!! If you come directly to my blog, you can continue the hop by following the link later in this post... Otherwise, if you're already hopping, you will have come from Genelle Little's blog so thank you for hopping along to me.

For those that don't know - ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

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 its 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.

Ok, onto my project, I've made a stationery set complete with a box, card, notecards, and even stamp and a pen! Now I've started by using the "I wish" Simply Scrappin' Kit and (this is what happens when you tidy and sort things out), I cannot find the "I wish" embellishments (I know there's some somewhere but I've searched for 2 days and had no luck in finding them! grrr not happy!!) Thankfully my project turned out ok with the use of the Christmas Classics Stamp Set - phewwww!

The Box


The cards

A couple of gift tags

The notecards

Materials Used:
Christmas Classics Stamp Set
"I wish" Simply Scrappin' Kit
Ink / Stampin' Write Markers: Chocolate Chip, Real Red &Old Olive
Eyelet Border Punch
Hemp Twine
Tombow adhesive - OMG this stuff is amazing!! I've been having a ball with it this week and have more things to show you another day!
Snail Adhesive
Blender Pen

So, now you've seen what I made... If you would like to have a go, here's the link to the splitcoast stampers tutorial. And my plan is to make more cards, tags and notecards ready for Christmas this year to fill the box and when the time comes to wrap presents I will be set with loads of everything needed.

Please continue the blog hop by having a look at Angela Purdie's blog next and she will have the link onto the next blog so you'll do a loop and arrive back here at the end.
