SAB Blog Hop!

Welcome to the ESAD-SU Sale a Bration Blog Hop!  This is my first Blog Hop, I'm very excited.  You should have arrived from Linda's Blog.  if you didn't, make sure you continue on the blog hop until you get to her.  And be sure you leave everyone a comment to win the Blog Candy!

ESAD-SU  (Extremely Special Aussie Demonstrators Stampin Up!)  is an onlineYahoo group of Aussie and NZ Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, it is heaps of fun.  If you are a Demo and haven't joined, here is the link:  http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/ESAD-SU/?yguid=365347826

I love Sale A Bration,   and I love the free exclusive stamp sets I can earn this year!    Here's a card I made using the cute Good Neighbors set - a word of warning;  you NEED the Stamp-a-majig for this set.  I also used Happy Moments for the sentiment.


Ingredients:  
Stamps:  Good Neighbours, Happy Moments
Ink:  Real Red, Ballet Blue, Creamy Caramel, Black Stazon
Paper:  Whisper White, Creamy Caramel, Ballet Blue
Fibres:  3/4 " Real Red Polka-Dot Grosgrain, Hemp Cord
Other:  SAMJ




These next cards use the Happy Moments set:





Ingredients:
Stamps:  Happy Moments, Whimsical Words, Vintage Labels, Polka Dot Background
Ink:  Black Stazon, Almost Amethyst marker, So Saffron marker, Regal Rose Marker, Apricot Appeal marker, certainly celery marker, Sahara Sand Marker
Paper:  Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Regal Rose,  Watercolour Paper, Kaleidoscope DSP
Fibres:  Regal Rose grosgrain, gold cord (retired)
Other:  certainly celery brads, dazzling diamonds glitter, aquapainter, Tearing Edge Ruler, Scallop Edge Punch,  Word Window punch, dimensionals


Finally, here are some cards I made using Vintage Labels.  I was really excited to discover that all of these frames match a punch!  Swoon!  It makes my heart go pitter-pat when everything co-ordinates like this.  I also decided to pull out my favorite stamp set from the current Idea Book & Catalogue (which I've sadly neglected of late), Fifth Avenue Floral.  I also used some of the co-coordinating DSP.  With the scraps, I made 6 matching love notes!






Ingredients:
Stamps:  Fifth Avenue Floral, Vintage Labels
Ink:  Black Stazon, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Gray
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Gray, Sahara Sand, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Urban Garden DSP
Other:  Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla satin ribbon, silver brads from the Pretties Kit, retired baja breeze corduroy button, hemp twine, dimensionals, scallop circle punch, large oval punch, curly label punch, small half pearls from Pretties Kit, mini glue dots, silver ribbon buckle from Hodgepodge kit,
