mini catalogue

ESAD Blog hop

Welcome. I’m the last post on this wonderful bloghop. You have come from Angie’s blog. Please click on the links at the bottom of the blog if you haven’t visited all the blogs on the blog hop. You will see the fabulous ladies who are part of this wonderful group. What group you ask?

Since joining Stampin’ Up! I have become a member of a facebook group, ESAD, for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. This group supports each other and gives advice and encouragement to its’ members. I have learnt a lot from these ladies and have felt very welcomed by them. This month we are doing a bloghop to showcase the items in the new mini catalogue. Once you’ve viewed my page, please hop on over to all the other wonderful work of our group and if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Australia or New Zealand please join our group. 

We each chose a different catalogue item to showcase. I chose Make a Wish which can be purchased through my store or a phone or email order. I bought this stamp set because it was Hannah’s birthday in March and I wanted to make her invitations. I thought this set was perfect for that.
Here are a few items I created with this wonderful set.

I really enjoyed using the date section of this stamp set to date the layout. I think it’s a neat little touch.

ESAD stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.


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 it is 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 here.

I know I keep mentioning framelits in my blogs and on my facebook page (which I’d love for you to like) and I’ve had some ask what they are. 

To start off you need a bigshot which you can purchase any time from me and then you need these little dies which are little pieces of metal with a blade in them used to cut out shapes.
Many of the Stampin’ Up! framelits come with matching dies. Many are even discounted by 15% if you buy both at the same time. I am going to demonstrate using the the Hearts a flutter stamp and framelit bundle available with the new mini catalogue. I stamped all my images onto a piece of whisper white cardstock.



Then you add the framelits on top of the stamped image.


Here is a close up of the die ontop of the stamped images.

I use sticky notes to hold them in place so they don’t move around while going through the bigshot.

Here is my lovely daughter holding the cut out images. It is so easy to do even a 6 year old can do it. Yes, she did this.

This is out of the bigshot and picked up with the die still in place.

Don’t you just love how easy the framelits are to use? I love that I can have these shapes in any patterned paper I like OR I can use the stamps and use any colour ink I have to create this look. It is sooo simple.

I have also used this set in a few class layouts recently and the girls love it too.

If you would like to place an order for the framelits, stamps or any other items please contact me. I can place an order for you at any time and have it shipped directly to you.
