ESAD Holiday Catalogue sneak peak Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to ESAD Holiday 2019 Sneak Peak, Shaz here!!!
I am an Aussie Stampin' Up! Demonstrator who lives in a small Central Queensland
town of Gogango. We have 14 houses in our town...
BUT it is country area so we have so many surrounding properties...
I cannot wait to show you what I have created for this sneak peak.

I HAD to play with the Come To Gather Suite on page 46,47 and 48 on the new
Holiday Catalogue which goes LIVE on Sept 4.
If you want a catalogue and don't have a demonstrator, email me at and I will post one to you.
Now this set is what I wouldn't normally buy as we don't have Fall here in Australia.
BUT I LOVE everything about this set!!!
The papers are just devine!!

You may have just joined me from Lauren's Blog Lauren and I are hopping along
with 23 other Demonstrators from all over Australia and New Zealand.
So without further ado, here is my project...

I kept it very simple....I have a frame which you can place photos both sides.
So I have photos of the 2 lil girls that you have probably seen before on my blog.
These girls are my cousin's children whom I babysit quite a bit!!!
They just had family photos taken and they were playing with leaves and in trunks
of the trees at the Botanical  Gardens in Rockhampton....

So here is a few how to make the elements of my photo mats.
I actually used a retired product here to emboss the leaves on my dsp.
Then I roughly tore around the edges of the leaves and then used a dauber to add
Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry to the texture on the leaves...
Then I crushed them in my hand and then added some of the large leaf stamp to the leaves.

You can't see the texture unfortunately in this photos, BUT you can feel it!!!I used the reverse of the papers to cut out my leaves that I have behind the
photo mat and photo.

For the other photo I just I also used the Gathered Leaves Die to cut the large maple leaf out of the paper, so cool that you can cut the leaf from the paper with the die and that you don't have to cut it out by hand. I couldn't find my stamp block for the size stamp that the
Maple leaf is sooo I just used the Ink pad and stuck it to the front. Then I used Daubers to put the colour on the stamp... Using the same colours as before.

See the photo polymer Maple leaf stuck as my stamp block.  Ink pad to my rescue...
FYI in case you can't find yours either on your messy table like mine.  LOL

Here are the completed photos with their leaf embellishments,
these photos didn't need much embellishing. Keep it simple!!!
Gorgeous aren't they???

  9. A fabulous use of this bundle, Sharon. It goes perfectly with those beautiful photos. This DSP has been a surprise love for me and I was tempted to get the stamp & die bundle as well, mostly for those leaves. I think you've just convinced me!!
