Yes, another Blog Hop! I had so much fun with the last one I decided to join in on another!
This is another Blog Hop through ESAD. For those who don't know ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) Demonstrators and it is an online group for Australian and new Zealand Demonstrators of Stampin' Up!
We so love what we do and not only do we share what we love with our customers, friends and wonderful blog visitors but we share our love of what we do with each other as Demonstraotrs. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know how and Cyberstamps and are always there to help and support each other when it's needed.
So if you are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group .
You should have just come from Angela Purdie's blog. Weren't her creations lovely?
Now, to show you the things I created for this Mother's Day theme. We focused on the Big Shot and let me say that the Big Shot is definately something worth focusing on!! I am having a ball creating things with my Big Shot!!
So, the first thing I decided to to do is a card using the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die. This is a great die that cuts out an entire card and has a curly label that you can move around and put it wherever you like on the front of the card. Oh and in true Stampin' Up! fashion it co-ordinates with the curly label punch from the catalogue. I also used the great new set from the mini called Teeny Tiny Sentiments. Loving this one, its so versatile!
The pink Curly Label is actually inside the card and you can view it through the window created by the Big Shot die. Cool, huh?!

Next is a card using the Top Note Die and the new In Colours. I am loving the quilted cards right now, so simple but I think they look so effective.

This cute little box was made using the Pillow Box Die and a sheet of acetate. Doesn't it look cute!! It has been embellished with the Vintage Vogue stamp set which you will know from my last blog hop is my new FAVOURITE stamp set!!

Last but not least is a basket I made using the scallop envelope die. All you do is cut out 4 scallop envelopes and join them together!! Another versatile die!! I have filled it with items I thought would be appropriate for Mother's Day but you could fill it with anything you like :)
