New Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to another Blog Hop. This time we, the members of ESAD, are doing a blog hop for the wonderful new Stampin' Up! catalogue that was released a few weeks ago.

Have you checked it out yet?  Want some more inspiration on using some of the wonderful products in it? Then check out what I have made below, and then make sure you hop along to all the other wonderfully talented ladies on the list.

I used the Build A Birthday photopolymer stamp set for these cards. I  love the endless possibilities of this stamp set. As you can see, it's not only for birthdays.

My first card has been made for a Baby Shower and my second card has been made for a Wedding. And you don't only have to make cakes with the bits either. Candles are an obvious choice to make, but I have also seen some other really cool cards made, and one would you believe that was a city scape . It was amazing. So with a little imagination, you can go beyond the birthday with this set.

I do hope you like my cards. Now why not hop along to Leonie Schroder  and see what wonderful creations she has come up with.

If you get lost along the way, then come back here and continue along the list.
