Stampin' Up! Occasional Catty ESAD Blog Hop - Card in a Box

Morning, morning, morning!! It's raining and blowing a gale here in Northern NSW, but don't worry it's a perfect day for a blog hop.... Yippee.

Today me and the ESAD girls are hopping our way through the new Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. The catty itself is gorgeous so I know you'll be blown away by all the beautiful creations the girls have come up with.

Whether you have just arrived after viewing Liv's awesome creations or come to me as a frequent visitor, Hi, Hello and Welcome!!

OK, today I'm sharing another card in a box (I know, I know. Honestly it's an addiction) that I made for Mr 4's birthday, using the new Retro Fresh papers, the Just Sayin' stamps with the matching Word Bubble framelits. I have also changed the measurement of this CIAB to make it a little wider in the front and thinner on the sides, just to mix it up a little lol.

 Here's a close up of all the "filling":

Mr 4 LOVED it!! He said it's the best birthday card ever!!! How can you top that for praise.

Now for those of you who don't know what ESAD means, here's a little explanation:

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,
