Welcome to my blog today for a special event - the ESAD Summer Mini Catalogue Blog Hop! You may have come from Christie's blog if you are doing the hop, make sure you click on the link at the end of the post to see more of our creations at the next stop.
What is ESAD? ESAD stands for 'Extra Special Australian Demonstrators' and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators. 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 is 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.
So what have I got for you today? It is a cute little wedding collection including an invitation, favour and place card. I got this cute idea from my friend Madeline Morcelo, she originally designed this as a gift card wallet (it was a project part of an Inkspirations4U Summer Edition) but I thought it would make an awesome wedding invitation. I have used the new You are Loved Stamp set and matching Love Blossoms wheel from the New Summer Mini Catalogue relelased TODAY. It is intended as a Valentine's set but I think it works really well for weddings too. I have also used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, the Neutrals DSP, Black Satin Ribbon and Scallop Oval punch. The favour was made using the Pillow Box Die. I cut it using cardstock vellum through my Big Shot. I then used the Parlor Prints Background stamp with VersaMark and embossed with black embossing powder. The hearts were hand cut on the belly band of the invite. I have used envelopes (cut off at approx. 5") to create the pockets and punched the half circle with the 1" circle punch. These hold the invite in the top and then the acceptance and registry info in the bottom two pockets. You could have as few or as many pockets as you need.Here is another collection using the same stamp set and wheel. This time I have created an invitation with a matching favour using the Fancy Favour Die and a place card (dont look too closely at my horrible handwriting) with a trim using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch. This collection was inspired by Yvonne Campbell. Thanks for visiting today, now you can head off to Jenny Hayward's blog to see what she has been up to. Thanks for joining in the fun of the hop......
