ESAD 2020 Mini Catalogue & SAB Blog Hop

Happy New Year Everyone! Thanks for stopping by this afternoon – you are in for a treat. Have you seen the new catalogue? Have you started making your list of things you need? Is your list so long you need some help narrowing it down? Well sit back, put your feet up and prepare to be inspired by what the ESAD crew are sharing tonight.

As soon as I saw the new catalogue, there was one suite that I knew I would definitely buy – for me it was a no brainer. And that suite is called the Birthday Bonanza suite. It is bright, fun, and perfect for children’s cards. In the end I didn’t actually buy it – my kids went through the catalogue and picked out things they thought I would like. With a bit of help from their dad they ordered me this suite plus a few other things for christmas. I must have trained them well because everything they picked was on my wishlist.

I made four cards using this suite, all the same layout, just mixing up the colours. I had done all the cutting for four cards when I realised the stamp set only had three cute animals not four – so my fourth card uses a cute ladybug from the SAB host set Little Ladybug.

The gift tag cut out on the card is one of the dies in the coordinating Bonanza die set – only I have trimmed these down so that they fit better. Since the tags have a stitching, I just used a large stitched rectangle to cut down the tag, resulting in a continuous stitched outline.

I hope you find these cards as cute as I do, but if cute animals is not your thing, click on below to hop around to everyone participating tonight – there is bound to be something that entices you! If you get lost on the blog hop at all, refer to the list below. Next up tonight is the wonderful Rochelle, click below to see what she is sharing.
