ESAD Blog Hop - Favourites from the 2017/18 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue

Hi and welcome to another ESAD blog hop which is about 
our Favourites - what we are lovin'.

 You may have hopped across from the
delightful Kristel Rimmer and I  
simply can't guess what her favs are..but Berry Burst seems to be a hit with her.
The box below explains what ESAD is  all about - it is a fun loving group that loves Stampin' Up 
and we are all Demonstrators 
I am lovin' this catalogue
and it was really hard to choose one fav.... so I have a
few. Love the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack so it forms part of my hop today including the cardstock.
I have chosen three of the new In Colours - Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink.
 I just had to make some small matching boxes for 
some chocolates to go with the cards but they had 
disappeared so lucky the Mentos were still in the cupboard
for my picture! 
 Love the Lemon Lime Twist card below - such a 
gorgeous colour

If you don't have the stampset you can cut the flowers out from the Fresh Florals DSP for your cards but I chose to use the Floral Phrases stampset and the words from Beautiful You. 
The layering ovals provided the perfect match for the flower stamp.
I think the Berry Burst card is my fav - what one do you like the most?
Was going to use the cute bows on the card
but felt they were not needed.. have another use for them
coming soon.
 Don't forget all these products are on pages 94-95 of the
2017-18 Stampin' Up! Catalogue 
for you to order.

 Now it is onto Kathryn Ruddick and I can't wait to see
her favourites.

Thank you for stopping by on this wonderful
ESAD Blog Hop.
until next time
thank you and happy stamping.
