Welcome to the ESAD Occasions blog hop. You may have arrived at my blog from the amazing Rachael Lesley
For my project today I decided to use the beautiful Special Reason stamp set. I received this set as a prize patrol at our recent On Stage Live. I have teamed this with a Sale-A-Bration set, Delicate Details. You will be able to receive this set FREE with a $90- purchase from 3rd January. This set has 5 delicate borders that will suit any occasion.
I just wanted a black and white look, with a hint of colour. I used Pool Party to add a hint of colour and lift the page.

My second project is a simple card, teaming the stamp set with the fabulous Stylish Stems framelits. I used Basic Grey card stock, silver foil and the shimmer white, stamped with Flirt Flamingo and Mint Macaron, added a sliver heat embossed border around the sentiment. Added a little wink of Stella to the cut out flower embellishment.

A beautiful stamp set that you will want to have in your stash. Better still you can get this in a bundle, and this will give you $$$$$ to spend on a a FREE Sale-a-bration set.
Thanks for stopping by and now hop on over to the talented Cheryl Algie

I seen this wonderful little Zig Zag album and decided to give it ago. Thanks to Creative Spirit for her video. 
I followed the video for the basic album, then made the rest up as i went along. I used all Stampin' Up! products, and even sneaked a few sneak peaks from the New Occasions Catalogue available in January 2017

I used the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper teaming it with Basic Grey, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock.
Just slipped the belly band off, so the the album can open. Sneak Peak with the belly band.
Full opened on one side, couple more sneak peaks.
Lots of place to put some of your photos. Hope this give you an idea to create your own.

I found a great stack of the old project life pages that I had purchased, so thought I would share a couple of layouts with you.
Jordi and Lola were singing their little hearts out, they have great imaginations using the sprinkler for there micro-phone.

To create Minnie Mouse I used the very versatile Swirly Scribbles Thinlit.

A fun day had by all.

I attended a Home Business's expo, and we all had to donate to the raffle.  I decided to create a box of cards. This is the box I made to put them in.

I used the beautiful Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Gold foil sheets.
To create the belly band I used the Layering Circles framelits 
Its a great time to purchase this set as they are on Sale reduced from $58- to $46.40
The Stamp set I used is Confetti Celebration.  Also so Perfectly wrapped

The Home business's day was a great success with all funds raised going toward our local Swan Hill Hospice.  (the town is raising money to build our own.)

ESAD 2016 Holiday Catalogue Favourite Products Blog Hop


Welcome to an ESAD blog hop.
You may have arrived to my blog from my fellow Stampin Up! Demonstrator friend Rachel. The theme of this blog hop is to highlight our favourite products in the current Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue 2016-2017.
This is my first ever blog hop so I'm just a beginner at this, so hopefully I inspire someone.
For my projects I used the simplicity of Whisper White card stock and teamed with the beautiful Copper Foil Sheets (142020 pg 47). I'm more a less is best person, so I hope you like these projects.

My first project is a Christmas card, that all my family members will now receive. I used the Christmas Pines (142049) Stamp set and the co-ordinating Pretty Pines (141851) thinlits die (bundle 143496) all on page 19, for the feature of the card, and added the Layering Circles Framelits (141705) at the back to help make it pop a little.

Next I thought I would compliment the card with a lovely gift box. I used the wonderful White gift boxes (142000) pg 7).
To decorate both of these projects I used the Copper Embossing powder (141636 AC) to do the sentiments and the sprinkles of the belly band of the gift box. Using the Thinlits and Copper foil sheets cut out the embellishments and layered them on top of the circles. Very happy with the result.

Thanks for visiting my blog now its time to hop on over to Tanya's and check out her wonderful projects.

Scrap Booking Layout Class - Oscar - Stampin' Up!

Love this layout, highlights Oscar playing on the walking (well I don't use it). These are 2 single layouts, using many different stamps to gain the background. I also incorporated the words in the framelits to create the word I wanted by cutting the words up.
Collage of stamps makes for great backgounds. 

Stamps used in the above layout where many different designs.
 This set is not only for Halloween, you  can use this set for many different ideas.
 This set is under rated. One I didnt think I would use a lot but have used it on many layouts and cards. It is solid and outline of the alphabet, value for money.
 All I can say about this set is its a must have set.
 Another set that you can get so much out of. These sets can be used time and time again, and thats what you want.
 This set is a great way to know when and where events happened when scraping your memories.
