ESAD - New Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our ESAD new Catalogue Blog Hop. What is ESAD I hear you ask? Well...

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 feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

You should have come to my blog from the talented Michelle, but if not you are starting here don't worry. As this is a blog hop you should just be able to click on the links in each post to take you all the way around. I will provided a list of all the talented ladies taking part, at the end of my post, just in case you get lost. There are 25 blogs in total - so grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy your hop. Oh and please feel free to leave some love by the way of comments on our posts. We love comments.

Today I only have the one project to show you - I know a bit unusual for me but it certainly took a bit of time to create. I love Christmas and I love counting down to Christmas - so when 25 & Counting was included in our catalogue naturally there was a bit of a squeal.

I wanted to design an Advent Calendar that looked a bit like a Christmas Tree so here she is in all her glory.

Here is a more side on view
I needed to make sure that the "drawers" were big enough to hold a decent amount of chocolate.

Here is a close up of some "drawers".

As you can see, I decided to use the colours that are from the gorgeous Be of Good Cheer DSP, which are Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla. Now Very Vanilla is great for stamping on, but is not particularly strong I substituted Naturals Ivory to make the Tree.

Thanks for looking and now it is time to hop off and check out Tanya's wonderful creations.

Oh and don't forget to come back at least next week as we are having a Holiday Mini Blog Hop.
