New Catalogue and ESAD Blog Hop

It's finally here, at long last. The new seasonal catty!!! I can't believe how beautiful this years catalogue is. I just love everything in it. And our new 2013/15 in-colours are the best yet.

So I thought the best way to celebrate a new Catty is with a Blog Hop!! And my gorgeous girls over at ESAD agreed.... Yippee!! So whether you found your way here all by yourself or have just come from the insanely talented Delys Cram, welcome, welcome, welcome. Why not stay a while, take a look and then hop on over to the amazing Monique Fielder. I'm telling you these Chickie's rule!!

 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 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 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 and I'll contact you with information on how to join our wonderful group!!

So I wanted to share some cards that I made for my Catalogue launch that I held last weekend. The first one is using the new Mosaic Madness stamp set plus it's matching punch (I L.O.V.E a matching punch!!!)

Don't you just love that little piece of acetate window!!! I've started to see this trend on a lot of cards at the moment. This sheet actually comes from the new Quatrafancy DSP.

Now I can't take any credit for this one as it was a Pinterest CASE card from the gorgeously talented LeeAnn Greff from Flowerbugs Inkspot. In fact, I loved her card so much I didn't change one little bit... well I did add a champagne Glitter heart, but other then that it was perfect just the way it was!!!

This next card is all mine, which makes a change...

I've used TWO new stamp sets on this one, one with.... dare I say it.... another matching punch!!! The yellow stamp " To the best Friend I've ever had" comes from the beautiful Label Love stamp set and it has a matching punch called the Artisan Label Punch. This little set comes with lots of gorgeous saying. I can see it being used ALOT this year. The "Happy Day" saying comes from another awesome set called, funnily enough, Happy Day. It's got some lovely big words in it, with could be used on heaps of projects.

So now you've had chance to see my lovely creations, why not carry on with the hop and check out what the other ESAD girls have been up to. Oh and if you would like to order any of these gorgeous goodies for yourself, HERE is the link to my online store!!!
