ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop Sneak Peek

Welcome to yet another wonderful ESAD blog hop!
I am so lucky to be in this group of talented demonstrators (friends) and I hope that you enjoy all our projects using items from the amazing Occasions and Saleabration catalogues .

I hope you are enjoying the hop so far.
You have come from the talented Jo's page

I fell in love with this set and although we already have a set with a lighthouse, this one is more realistic and detailed.

I made this card for class this week as well as the blog hop.

Fully closed

Partway Open

Fully Open

This card is called a hidden pop up card and I have seen quite a few on the internet. The best instructions would be the talented Deb Valder, (my measurements are slightly different to hers though as I adjusted them so we could get two card bases from one A4 sheet of cardstock)

I have actually got another project in the making... a scrapping page for my son from my Mothers Day pictures..... but life has thrown our family a curveball.... we had a flood from our bathroom that has gone into our bedroom and my craftroom!!! So at the moment my room is like a bomb has hit it... (yes for those who have seen my craft room it was like that already yeah yeah)
we have got machines drying out the carpet and luckily my papers are not on that wall so they seem to be fine!

  • Stamps: Sailing Home 
  • Ink:  Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Soft Suede
  • Card: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Come Sail Away DSP
  • Tools: Layering Circle Framelits & Smooth Sailing Cut & Emboss Dies with a die cutting machine
  • Embellishments: - Dimensionals & Bakers Twine (Night of Navy/Sahara Sand)

      I am happy you are now off to my dear beautiful friend Denise's project. 
      I know you will be wowed!!
