Sale-a-bration has finally arrived and what better way to celebrate than with a Blog Hop.  So slip off your sling backs, grab yourself a summer beverage and come join me as we take a look at the awesome projects featured by our ESAD members.

You may be joining the Hop here or from the very talented Felicity Fernandez  either way ‘welcome aboard’.  I hope that you enjoy the projects and that you are all inspired to hit your craft rooms and “Sale-a-brate!”

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 feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

Now onto my projects.  First up for you I have a cute little draw box with an easel calendar on top and some 4 x 4 notecards inside.

I have used the gorgeous Everyday Enchantment dsp and co-ordinating brads for this desk set.   I love the ‘vintage’ look of these papers with the muted colours and sponged edges and they coordinate beautifully with some of this year’s in-colours – Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  These are new additions to the exclusive Sale-a-bration range and are available for free when you order over $100 in regular merchandise between 24 January and 31 March.

Of course as well as the paper and accessories there are also exclusive stamps.  I have used the flower image from the Fresh Vintage stamp set on my easel calendar and the set of 4×4 notecards that fit inside the little draw.

The last item in the set is a post-it note holder with a magnetic flower fridge magnet and decorated pen.  I have used a 5×7 acrylic photo frame which I picked up in a two pack from my local $2 store.  These are super easy to decorate and make a lovely quick gift.  I always have a few of the frames on hand just in case.

The flower on the left side is magnetic and and was cut from the Fun Flowers Bigz Die.  The image in the centre is another stamp from the Fresh Vintage set attached with another of those delicious brads.  I am so much in love with these little things I think I will have to buy another $100 of stamps just so I can get me some more.

Here is a close up of the flower magnet just so you can see that brad in all it’s glory!
