ESAD BigShot Blog Hop

Posted on September 17, 2010 at 7:55 PM

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re ready for the ESAD New Catalogue BigShot Blog Hop! This Blog Hop not only shows some of the fabulous Stampin’ Up! products in the new 2010/2011 Idea Book and Catalogue but also uses the Stampin’ Up! Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. So grab a cupper and enjoy our creations.

What is ESAD? ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

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 its 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.

If you are following the Blog Hop, you would have arrived from Nikki Sadler’s creations via - I have listed below all the websites that form part of this blog hop, so you can go back later to any that you may have missed.

Ok onto my projects, I have been working on some festive punch art pieces, and have redesigned my original Puss and Boots Punch Art Tutorial into a Christmas Kitty Punch Art Tutorial and Kit, all made using only Stampin’ Up! punches. I have used the Stampin’ Up! BigShot Top Note and Pillow Box die’s (out of what is sure to be my new fave color Early Espresso Cardstock) to make a quick and easy gift bag, that can also be hung on the Christmas Tree.

My second project is a new Santa Punch Art that I created while at my recent weekend retreat, using the Stampin’ Up! BigShot Scallop Circle and Top Note Die's and Stampin' Up! Punches, this design can be used as a card, gift card holder or gift box, in my example I have made Santa into a greeting card.

The above Punch Art Designs and more will soon be added to my web store and available for purchase as a tutorial or prepunched kit. If you are interested in purchasing, please email me and I will let you know as soon as they are available.

My last project is a peak at a new Interactive Scrapbook Album and Tutorial, I first featured this Album back in May. The album was inspired and originally designed by my very talented friend Jackie Carter, and together with my upline Kerri Hunter, we ran a day Scrapbook Class and created an informative step-by-step pictured tutorial for purchase. One guess what photos my album below will feature??

I have been working on a new album to show the new Designer Series Papers now available.

The Interactive Scrapbook Album includes 18 pages made from scratch, each page is different - with interactive lift ups, pull outs, spin, tags etc and lots more, with places for over 40 photos.


As this blog post is getting quite long, I will be back shortly to provide more information on this new Album, Tutorial and Cardstock Kit that is available for purchase. By following this tutorial, you can use any patterned DSP, cardstock or colors you wish to suit the theme of your album. The below photo shows glimse of an album created by another good friend, Sharon Sweet, once again using the new Newsprint DSP and utilising the Stampin' Up! BigShot Top Note Die for some of the photo mats.

Thanks very much for reading my blog, if you are local to the Ballarat, Victoria area, you are welcome to attend my classes or if not check out my Webstore or Tutorials available for purchase pages.
