ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop - Rest Relax Enjoy

Welcome back for another ESAD blog hop. It has been a while since we've had one so it is great to be back hopping with some of my Stampin' Up! friends. So, whether you are starting with me or have hopped over from seeing the fab creations by Rochelle Laird-Smith .... welcome! 

We are sharing some of our favourite products from the Stampin' Up! 2024-25 Annual Catalogue. I have quite a few faves but I wanted to show you one that you may have overlooked - the Rest Relax Enjoy stamp set. I like it because it is a bit different and I love that you can add lids to the jars and pots or leave them open. So many ideas buzzing around in my head! 

And did you spy my next favourite product in the background? The Cute Crochet 3D Embossing Folder is so lovely and adds fun texture to projects. I thought it looked a bit like textured wallpaper for this card. 

The large vase is stamped onto paper from the Country Lace Designer Series Paper pack. I have used other designs from the pack for the shelf and table. I have used watercolour pencils and a Color Lifter to colour my candle and oil bottle.

Oh and what about the fab foliage and flowers! The Flowers of Beauty dies are amazing. There is a strip with 8 flowers on one die, in 2 sizes! Makes die cutting little flowers so quick and easy!

There are so many more amazing products in the new catalogue. Why not take advantage of the FREE SHIPPING this coming Tuesday, May 21 and pop some of these in your cart!

Make sure you continue around to each blog in the hop. Next up you are off to visit Tracy Held. I know she will have something to wow you with!
