ESAD SAB Blog Hop

Welcome to the ESAD SAB Blog Hop. What is ESAD, what is SAB & what is a Blog Hop?????

ESAD - is a group of Australian & New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators. We have a fantastic Yahoo group where demonstrators can ask questions, share ideas & inspire each other. If you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Australia or New Zealand you can find out more about how to join ESAD here.

SAB - stands for Sale-A-Bration & is the most exciting promotion on the Stampin' Up! calendar. During SAB (25th January to 31st March 2010) customers can choose a free SAB stamp set for every $100 spent, Hostess can choose a free SAB stamp set for every $600 in sales & new demonstrators can choose a free catalogue stampset to the value of $79.95.

For the Blog Hop, you just follow the link at the end of my post to the next blog to check out some more creations using SAB stamp sets. There are 42 blogs in total & if you comment on all of them you will be in the running to win some amazing blog candy including inkpads, ribbons, stampsets etc.

As soon as I saw these cards, I knew I had to CASE them. They are so quick & simple to make yet still look gorgeous. I have made mine in Pink Pirouette & Baja Breeze using 1/4 of an A4 sheet each, so they are a small 10.5cm x 7.5cm

Stampset: Happy Moments
Cardstock: Confetti White
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Black Staz On
Accessories: Designer Buttons, Aquapainter, Pink Pirouette 1 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon


Stampset: Happy Moments
Cardstock: Confetti Cream
Ink: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Black Staz On
Accessories: Corduroy Buttons (retired), Aquapainter, Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon
Another great thing about these cards is that they fit into one of the Stampin' Up! medium sized cellophane bags. I found some matching DSP in my stash & made a couple of bag toppers to package up my cards. If you would like the chance to win one of these card sets, along with many other great prizes then make sure you continue on the blog hop & comment on each of the blogs. The blue set will be sent to the overall blog candy winner & I will draw a winner from those who comment on my blog for the pink set.




Thanks for hopping by, make sure you continue on to Amy's blog for the rest of the ESAD SAB Blog Hop.
