ESAD Blog Hop - New Catalogue Inspiration

Welcome to the ESAD 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop. Wow that is a mouthful. Basically it's just a bunch of South Pacific Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who have got together and created wonderful projects using items out of the new catalogue. As demonstrators we love what we do and we love to share it. So grab a cuppa and sit back and enjoy the show. At the end of my post you will see a list of all the participants in case you get lost along the way.

So you have probably come to my blog after just visiting Carolina's. Boy didn't she do a fantastic job. Such a talented lady and a tough act to follow. Here is what I created.

Work of Art and Grateful Bunch - Narelle Fasulo - Simply Stamping with Narelle

I chose to work with the Work of Art stamp set and the Grateful Bunch bundle. I purposely put these two together. My reason is because whenever I have seen the Work of Art stamp set used, it is always in a bright or bold fashion. But I wanted to showcase it in a much more subtle way. And what better way than matching it to flowers. I am late to the party so to speak with Grateful Bunch. I have seen lots and lots of samples using it from when it was in the recently retired Occasions Catalogue. I wanted to get it, but unfortunately there was so much other great stuff in that catalogue, and I never quite made it that far down my wish list. So when I saw it carry over to the new annual catalogue, it was the first thing on  my order. I suspect  that the same thing may happen to some of the items on my wish list for the new catalogue.

So you are probably wondering what the ESAD means. Well here is some information for you.

Now it is time for you to hop along to Kelly's blog to see what wonderful creations she has come up with.


And in case you get lost along the way, just come back here and carry on where you left off.
