ESAD Goodbye Mini Catalogue Blog Hop


Welcome to an ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) blog hop. It is nearing the end of the August - December 2020 Mini Catalogue and we are farewelling it in style! So make sure you hop around to each blog for inspiration. Just before I sat down to finish this post I read that  many items from this catalogue will be reduced from December 8th. How perfect! Grab a bargain or maybe buy your own Christmas present! Ironically the 2 main products I have used are not discounted ... but they are so good you will want them anyway! 

Today I am sharing some fun gift bows that I have made using Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes, the Tree Angle stamp set and the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. Look how pretty that paper is!

The Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes are the perfect size for smallish gifts. I love that you can decorate the front. Here I have just simply added some trees and a the sentiment stamped in Melon Mambo. I have use the Stitched Triangles dies. I love that scattering of triangles. Not sure what it is but it adds a little something something to a project!

Add in some Silver Foil Stars using the Stitched Stars dies and some Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and my simple box front was complete.

Now it is the inside that I was most happy with! Inside I have used the Plaid Tidings DSP and the coordinating colours of Mango Melody and Melon Mambo to wrap my gift. So happy that the idea in my head come out as I had hoped!

I have made Shower Melts. They are a bit like Bath Bombs, except you use them in the shower ... of course! They turn your shower into an aromatherapy session ... all while you are getting clean. 

To make the Shower Melts is quite easy. You just need to give them time to harden. Want to give them a go? 

Make you snap up these products before they sell out! You can click the tab at the top of this blog to go straight to my online Stampin' Up! store. Now .... keep hopping! Next up is Libby Dyson. Can't wait to see what she has in store for us!
