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 cyber stamps, 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.


And now on with the show......



Can't you just imagine this gorgeous box filled with cookies, or some other home made Christmas delight?  I can.....but thought it would be a little dangerous for my waist line to add any such thing to it just yet!

My cookie box showcases the gorgeous new Designer Series Paper called Letters To Santa perfectly!  I have added a tag made using the brand new Two Tags Die, a sentiment from the stamp set Tags Til Christmas, and some Cherry Cobbler seam binding to finish it off.  



My card features the beautiful ornament from the Tags Til Christmas Stamp set, as well as Baroque Motifs and Four The Holidays, 2 sets I was really pleased to see in the new catalogue!  Add some Top Note die cuts, some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and a Rhinestone, and we're done :)

Thanks for stopping by.  Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Nicole VanSteelandt Derendorf.  Be sure to leave her some comment love :)
