ESAD Sale-a-bration blog hop - February 2018

Hello one and all, you are here at Shaz's blog.
Today, the ESAD group of 19 Stampin' Up Demostrators
will showcase a variety of projects created with
2018 Sale-A-Bration products - 1st and 2nd release.
These are free products with the purchase of $90 Stampin' Up products
I cannot wait to see what everyone has created...
Here is mine, hope you like them....
Thanks for hopping with me today

I decided that I would use the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper,
they are so pretty in real life...Make sure you grab yourself some.

I have seen many variations already on Pinterest,
BUT for once I decided on trying my own design.
Firstly I cut around the beautiful floral design and
then I decided to once again use Brusho Crystal Colour
I just spritzed the foil dsp and add sprinkles of coloured crystal powders

to colour them.
Then I had to wait patiently for them to dry.

 For the leaves, I used 2 colours to create the right colour leaf for me

Who else is guilty of this?
If this is going behind another piece of
cardstock or DSP I cut shapes out of it
so that I don't feel like I am wasting paper.

 Then I decided that I would also use one of the
Sweet Soiree Memories & More card pack on this card...
I didn't like the original flower on the 'one perfect day' so I covered it.
With the Brusho flowers
 I really love how this turned out...

My next design is just a little bit of layering and copper embossing.

 Up next is Melinda Whittington
 I am sure that she will have some wonderful projects to share with us.
 What is ESAD you ask, here is a lil explanation.

Below is a full list of the participants if someone's links

Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop - February- Love

This is my first HOP with Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hoppers,
you might have started with me or you may have started with Danielle

There is quite a few of us who are hopping together this month, 14 talented artists.
This months theme is LOVE...

As I have said before in previous blog posts this year
I am focusing on Scrapbooking more than cardmaking...
Funnily enough I got my inspiration from a card front that I had made months ago.
The colours matched the photo

I have used a set that you could earn in the Occasion Catalogue if you were a hostess.
YAY YOU, has some lovely sentiments and shapes.
You will see once you see my photos why I used this set.
I also used Memories & More Petal Passion Card Pack

My style of scrapbooking is very simple, I really like to FOCUS on the photos.
The quality is not the best BUT they show LOVE.
So my layout is more about the photos than all the scrapbooking supplies
you can use to complete a layout.
I create with the philosphy K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid)

Up next is Melissa, I am sure that she will have an AWESOME layout

Danielle Bennenk Sharon Dalton Melissa Davies Tina Riddle Cheryll Miller Jerim Dickins Charlet Mallett Pam Staples Dena Albee Jenny Hall Andrea Tracy-Tucker Tanya Boser Cathy Caines Jess Brown
