Sale-a-bration ESAD blog hop

What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
We love what we do and love to share with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas and friendship, and we're always there to help and support each other.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia then please feel free to leave me a comment with your Email address and I'll contact you with information on how to join our wonderful group.
 Sale-a-bration starts on 28 Jan 2014 and runs to 31 March. 
For every $95 you spend on stampin' up! products you can choose a gift from the SAB caty for Free! But what to choose? 
Here are my faves from SAB this year and ideas of how to use them.

1. First is this gorgeous little banner punch. It makes perfect little bunting flags in patterned papers, foil papers, embossed papers or stamped images.
2. Sweet Sorbet patterned paper- this season is polka dotted, floral and striped in pretty sorbet colours.
3. The Sweet Sorbet accessory pack comes with printed adhesive backed cork and 9.1 metres each of crisp cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana and Summer star fruit twine. The papers, the flowers, the colours all coordinate.

5.  Seeya Later Alligator stamp set. The cards above all feature words from this set. Some have been stamped using Stampin' Write markers to ink up the words separately in different colours.
6.  Good as Gold Card kit.
Makes  8  "Thank you" AND "For you" cards. It includes 8  envelopes and shiny gold foil liners, and the coloured die cut  flags are already  printed and cut for you! 
Beautiful colours  of Bermuda  Bay, Tangerine Tango,  Pistachio pudding, Basic black, Sahara sand  and  gold. You can  copy  the  designs on  the  pack  or  branch out  and  do your own  thing.  The  printed labels  are in  three  languages: French, German and English - Merci, Danke, Thank you. 
With  a little  creativity and  extra card stock bases you could make  16 cards.  Just loving the gold  elastic  cord  and  Burmuda bay bakers  twine.

You have to see this kit in real life to appreciate the shiny gold dots and banners.
So, it is See ya later, Alligator ... come back soon to see the Seasonal Catalogue creations in a few days.
