ESAD New catalogue Blog Hop

Hi there, 
Welcome to my blog on the ESAD blog hop for the new Stampin Up Idea Book & Catalogue.
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 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 fee free to click here to join our wonderful group.
 
You may have come from Elizabeth Dyson's blog but if you have started here then keep following around for the complete hop.
Today I want to show you a couple of altered items that I have been playing with this week. I used my new designer paper Beau Chateau to alter this clock that I got for $4.95 at a discount shop. I also embossed the roses from the stamp set Elements of Style on whisper white and coloured it using my markers and then cut them out and glued them on the face of the clock.

The second item I altered this week is a photo frame. I love this piece of designer paper in the pink pirouette and soft suede. I then made some roses and put them on the bottom left corner. Now I have to find a nice photo to put in the frame.


The final project I made is a box using the new Petite Pocket die. I wanted to find something else I could do with this die and I think the box is a nice size one made using 4 pocket die cuts. The flower I made using blossom Party die and also 2 different circle punches. I used some more of the beau Chateau paper left from the frame to decorate the box.

As a special thank you for all our visitors we have Blog Candy!!  We will have two prizes – one for a New Zealand visitor and one for an Australian visitor.  What you need to do to be eligible to win is to visit and comment on every blog in the hop. Then you need to email Sharlene and advise her that you’ve completed the Blog Hop and give her your name, email and location. 

thanks for stopping by. Now its time to hop along to Michelle Greth's blog. Enjoy your day.
