Ok first of all some explaining... ESAD is a Yahoo Group I belong to (I belong to a few yahoo groups) for Demonstrators and I have been a member for ages basically since I became a demonstrator, it's great for sharing ideas and information and meeting other demos. It stands for Extremely Special Aussie Demonstrators. Now if you have been watching my blog for the last few weeks you will know what SAB stands for - 'Sale-A-Bration' - Stampin' Up!'s Promo to beat all promos for the year and what a great way to jump start 2010! So get those orders together and call me today (0414 400 841) so you can earn your FREE SAB sets. Don't forget that for every $100 you spend you can qualify for a FREE SAB set - there are FOUR FABULOUS SETS to choose from. Next..... a blog hop is basically as it says, you hop from one blog to another as you follow all the links and complete the trail. The idea is you can see a great selection of all the wonderful creations that we have all come up with using one of the SAB sets. The bonus is there is what we call BLOG CANDY (FREE STUFF) up for grabs. All you have to do is comment on all the blogs as you go to go into the draw for the BLOG CANDY. So if you are on the blog trail, you should have arrived from Debbie William's Blog. If you missed the starting line you can start here. Now you are here let me explain what I have created. I have chosen to use the Vintage Labels SAB set.
I have decorated a 5 x 5 Stampin' Up! Journal and have made a Lindt Gift Box. I have used Real Red & Whisper White Cardstock and the Pink Flamingo DSP. I have also used Real Red and Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon. For the Lindt Box I have decorated it with a flower from the Blooms Die Cuts (P.144 IB&C) and one of the new Jumbo Grommets from the Mini Catalogue. You need to use the 1/2" Circle punch with the grommets for the centre but because I had punched the scallop circle around the scallop image I couldn't get the small punch to reach into the centre so I punched a small 1/2" Circle out of scrap and used it to trace one and then cut it out with my craft knife.
For the journal I have used another Real Red flower from the Blooms Die Cuts and then mounted little 1/2" Regal Rose circles around the petals. This red flower is sitting on a white 4" circle I cut using my Circle Scissor Plus then (it may be hard to see from the pic, sorry) I have attached a scallop border that I crimped. This is super easy to do, I made it for a card a while ago and I included the instructions on that post here. I used the length of a A4 cardstock but it was not quite long enough to go all the way round so had to add a small piece to finish the circle (hope you cant see my joins). You may also notice that I have used the curly label stamp from this set and attached them to act as little dividers for whatever. I hope you like my 'Valentine's Colours' since it is just around the corner I figured why not. This pair would make a lovely thank you gift or Valentine's present. I have always been tempted to let my husband loose in my craft room to see what he comes up with for me - NOT! hehehe
Now you can head off to Gardenia Pepworth's Blog to see what she has been up to for the Blog Hop. Have fun everyone and don't forget to comment on all those blogs to go into the draw for the BLOG CANDY. I am donating my journal for the draw (sorry my husband has already put his name on the Lindt Block). Remember you have to be in it to win it!

I live in Melbourne and work as a secondary school teacher. I have been a stamper for over 10 years but did not effectively realise my creative talents until I discovered Stampin'Up! which made it all so much easier and WAY more fun! I have been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for nearly 4 years now and am absolutely loving it! I am keen to have you join my team so you too can enjoy all the benefits that being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator can bring YOU. If you are interested in learning more, feel free to drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)or give me a call (0414 400 841)for more information.
