Welcome to the ESAD Mini and Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Catalogues Blog Hop ... wow is that a name! I know I often say this at the start of a new catalogue but there are some really amazing new products in the pages of these catalogues and I can't wait to see what my fellow demonstrators have come up with to share them with you. Best of all, the products in the SAB catalogue can be earned for free, every $90 (AUD) you order entitles you to these wonderful stamps, framelits, embossing folders, embellishments and DSP.
One of the great things about being a demonstrator is being able to order a month before the catalogue goes live, and this year we were able to purchase the bonus all new demonstrators who sign up between now and 31 March will earn for free ... a mini trimmer and a sample pack of DSP from both catalogues! I took this opportunity and this lovely hibiscus and frangipani DSP from the Tropical Oasis DSP, and have used a piece on the front of this card, reversing part of the DSP as a second panel. The beautiful big hibiscus and leaves are stamped and cut using the Timeless Tropical Bundle products.
A strip of Braided Linen Trim from the Annual Catalogue really coordinates beautifully with this suite as it has a really organic feel. I used my stamparatus to stamp the sentiment a couple of times in Early Espresso. This card would be perfect for a retirement or even someone going on an extended holiday.
My second card is made using some of the stunning products in the Peaceful Poppies Suite. What a great suite this is with two stamp/framelit bundles, DSP, ribbon, pre-printed elements and sequins. While I haven't used the ribbon on this card, if you visit my blog regularly you are going to see quite a lot of it as it is just beautiful and being white can be coloured with Blends to coordinate with any project.
I have used both the Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments bundles as well as the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP and sequins on my card. I love how sequins can add a little pop of sparkle.
Time to hop on over and see what the lovely Narelle has created with these wonderful new products.
