ESAD So Long Old Favourites Blog Hop

Welcome to ESAD So Long Favourites Blog Hop.
We are a group of  25 Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators who are sad that
our favourites products from 2018-2019 catalogue are Retiring
BUT they are making way for lots of brand new products released on Jun 3.

Originally I thought I would like to have created something with Brusho's
which are pigment based inks that come to life when you add water.
BUT that would take time as it had to dry in between layers.
SO I needed something that was quick so I had lots of leftover
Share What You Love DSP...

 This DSP is so beautiful and it has a Pearl finish to some of the papers.
So I set out to re-create a page that I had made a long time ago...
Thinking it was going to be quick and easy...Haha famous last words.


That page was easy BUT then I decided I needed to do a matching layout
for my Scrapbooking Classes on Monday night.
so I think this made my job harder too!!!

This is when it became not so quick and easy as this page didn't come together as quickly as I would have liked....Lots of to-ing and fro-ing with this my fellow demo friends.
EVENTUALLY  I got something that I am truly happy with...
AND a bit of fussy cutting makes my heart happy.

I snuck in a couple of products that are carryover from 2018-2019 catalogue
into the new 2019-2020 catalogue. I was lucky that quite a few of my favourite
stamp sets stuck around!!! Even though I didn't use many stamps and ink here.
The stamp set Swirly Frames, which has so many cools frames to use on your
Scrapbooking or card making...

I used Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad  and on the Swirly Frames stamps
Mossy Meadow Cardstock for the photo mats.
I used Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots on the Vellum to pop them up
and to hold the vellum together on the banner/swag.

I cut all the circles with the Layering Circle Framelits...
I just wish there was more than one of each size as I had to cut 19 circles of one size
the beauty of these are that you can cut rings with
larger and smaller circles at the same time
7 of another size...So lots of cutting!!!
Hope you enjoyed my double layout!!!

Can you see that beautiful pearl sheen to those fussy cut flowers,
isn't it BEAUTIFUL!!!
So Sad that it is leaving us at the end of May...If it doesn't sell out beforehand.
If you want this beautiful paper, hurry up and shop here and your will find
this DSP and sooo much more in the clearance rack
