Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue ESAD Blog Hop - Box of Tags

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you are ready for the ESAD Blog Hop! Better go grab yourself a cuppa (if you havent already) as you'll be hopping for a while!

What is ESAD you say?

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) 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 it's 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 have been hopping along the Blog Hop you have probably come from Debbie Williams' blog.

Here is my contribution to the ESAD Blog Hop. The BIG SHOT is the best thing from the New Mini Catalogue in my mind, i just love it soooooooo much. Possibilities are endless!!!! My favourite die from the new mini is by far the Top Note Bigz Die, it is just so versatile and I have demonstrated just a couple of ideas using the die in these projects. I have used it here to make a little box complete with compartments and a matching card. I have also use the new Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper and matching new In Colour Cardstock Rich Razzleberry. The little box is full of various die cuts using the new embosslits, sizzlets etc. including buttons, tags and little leaves. To make the shape on the card I have simply put the Top Note back through after turning it 90 degrees to get the square shape. The pieces it cuts off the Top Note die are also very useful for either cards or scrapbook pages so dont throw them away!








If you want to recreate one of these cute little boxes you can click here for instructions. I am offering the card and box and all its contents as Blog Candy for one lucky reader. All you have to do is comment on all the blogs on the hop and then email Sharlene at stampwithsharlene@hotmail.com to go into the draw then this little box could be all yours.
So get hopping to Fiona Platzer's blog to see her gorgeous Vintage Vogue cards and the cute new Bird Punch.

That top note box is already in my pile of 'must do' projects and now it's going to be moving straight to the top. You have made such a lovely project with it. And I love the tip of cutting down the Top Note die - what a fab idea that I will trying really soon.
