Christmas In July Blog Hop

I hope you’re ready for the ESAD Christmas in July Blog Hop! With lots of wonderful Christmas Idea's in store to get your festive season going.

What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

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 its 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 if you have been following the blog hop you would have come from the very talented Susan Byers.

I celebrated with my Wonderful Newcastle Girls Christmas in July, just last night and we all had a wonderful time with lots of Lovely gifts, Projects and Fun with friends. I thought what a better project to share with you than the one my girls all made last night. A beautiful Card box with 6 co-ordinating cards Perfect to be given as a gift. Made with a variety of papers from the Holiday Treasure Designer Series Paper Pack and Stamped with Images from the Season of Joy Stamp Set they were beautifully gold embossed on the front the Folder was filled with 6 cards, 3 of 2 different designs. The Chocolate Chip coloured card was embellished with a Baja Breeze Top Note Die and embossed with Polka Dots embossing folder. The Kraft coloured cards featuring 2 beautiful Christmas tree's again from the Season of Joy stamp set is completed with a bow wrapping around the card and tying in the middle. Both wonderful cards to make when needing to make lots of cards for Christmas giving. All my Mt Tamborine Retreat Girls (Here is a little sneak Peek of a Make and Take Project to be made on our weekend away, Places still available).

Thank you for visiting and I look forward to seeing you here again sometime soon. You will now hop off to Bev Watt.

Christmas in July

With Christmas in July being celebrated around the World I thought what better place to start than here. With my Biggest Night of the year Christmas in July being celebrated with wonderful Projects, Food and Prizes on the 23rd of July I didn't think you would mind a little Christmas cheer to get us all into the swing of making those wonderful festive cards. I will be participating in a Christmas in July Blog hop on the 24th of July, make sure you pop back to check it all out as I have lots of Wonderful Christmas cheer in store over the coming months.

I made this wonderful card using a technique I was shown by a very talented lady Faylene. By incorporating her own design into my design it really does add a distinct woven feature. The Christmas tree and backgtround swirls are from the Stamp Set Season of Joy.

Loads of Love Stamp Set really is a favourite of many stampers and with this being on the wonderful 20% off Selected 2 Step Stamp list, Now is a fabulous time to start with some fun stamping for Fathers Day.
