Did you just pop over from ANN’s blog or have you just turned up on my blog impressed that I’ve actually updated? Either way, we are glad you are joining us for the ESAD New Catalogue Blog Hop. Just continue linking from one blog to the next (each should have a link to the next) and you eventually will have done an entire circle and be back at the beginning again full with lots of great ideas for projects using yummy new products from the brand new catalogue!
WHAT IS ESAD?
All of the participants of the blog hop today are members of 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
PMS – IT’S GOOD THING (SOMETIMES!)
My creative brain hasn’t been working lately and I was trying to figure out how to showcase a couple of my favourite things from the new catalogue and my wonderful friend, Melinda, came to the rescue with this super idea (don’t you love having awesome and creative friends to share ideas with?!). I’ve named it the “PMS box” – Popcorn, Movie, and Snacks … Wouldn’t this be a fabulous gift to give a special friend, a complete girl’s night in enclosed in a gift box!
If you didn’t want to make a decision on a movie, you could even create a coupon or get a rental gift card and it would also fit inside the box. Of course you will have to give the bottle of wine separately – it just doesn’t want to fit in the box!! LOL
The box looks like a clutch purse when it’s all closed up – how cute is that! While a guy might not appreciate how “pretty” it is, the girls will!!
see … there is the popcorn hiding in the box!
Wouldn’t you just love to have a PMS night like this one - it would be so much fun to get the girls together!! Now we just need to figure out a way to get rid of the boys …

Card/Paper: Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White cardstock,
