One final farewell to our favourite Stampin’ Up! products which will no longer be with us after the 31st August. I hope you are enjoying looking at all the great ideas and creations from some very talented Demonstrators!
What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.
We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do with each other as demonstrators.  We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know-how, and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when it is needed.
So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please fee free to click here to join our wonderful group.
I have created a 20 page scrapbook album for my older sister Susan who became a Nana for the first time earlier this year. I decided to do 8”x8” layouts as these are the perfect size to fit a 6”x4” photo which are easily printed at a load of places.
However, I don’t have any baby stamp sets and didn’t want to buy any because I don’t think I would get the use out of them. So I decided just to get some Nursery Suite speciality dsp and matching Quick Accents.
I wanted to keep the layouts simple as my sister is not a scrapbooker and didn’t want her overwhelmed and not use the album. I also left plenty of blank space on each page for journalling.
By using 8” layouts I only needed to use A4 cardstock. So all I bought for this album was the Nursery Suite dsp and the Quick Accents. Everything else came from my stash, just some buttons, ribbon, brads and bling. And after 20 pages I have enough leftovers for another 20 pages!!
