ESAD Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Woohoo our new Holiday Catalogue is now live and to celebrate we are having an ESAD blog hop..and for some of you, Youve just arrived from the uber talented Sharlene Meyers’ Blog.


So 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!
We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and
wonderful 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
So if
you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand,
then please feel free to leave
me a comment and I’ll contact you with
information on how to join our wonderful group.

So onto my project to show you. As part of the perks of this job I got the tablescape kit as part of a bundle for free. This kits retails for $19.95 (133463)

I loved the projects shown in the holiday catalogue using this kit but my mind was already planning on using it as a mini album as soon as I saw it.

Heres what I came up with.IMG_6008-001 You can get three mini albums out of this one kit. I am planning on two more with my recent trip to Utah with the 2013 Incentive Trip. Sorry about the Photo bombing but here are the insides. Theres some pockets and flaps on this album ..which is how I love to make mini albums. I come to do instructions and I go..’how did I do that again’? lol

As you can see I used a few other items for embellishments  which included basic black and crushed curry chevron ribbon, crisp cantaloupe stretched ruffled trim, very vintage buttons, essential hardware clip,  epic day this and that stickers, sweater weather DSP and some sahara sand and calypso coral cardstock. I love how this turned out and cant wait to start the next one. The album measures 6″x8 1/4″. I am planning on putting them all in an A4 box and decorating the outside too.  IMG_6009 - CopyI managed to get 22 little photos into this album which was just perfect!  I got my new World Map stamp set while I was making this so of course that had to be incorporated into it somewhere lol.
I LOVE the chalkboard labels and the chalk board marker in this kit!
Now local girls ..I will be teaching this mini album if you just want to do one or I will have the whole kit for you to buy at the class.  For demos I will be providing instructions ..just waiting on my tripod  which is still coming home from the US.
I havent used two of the items in this kit yet but plan on using it on my box. Ill show all three and the box soon!
Righto off  enough photos already and off to blog hop some more..this time to the lovely and talented Ann Wills.
Hope you enjoy our blog hop!
