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 feel free to contact me and find out how to join our wonderful group.

There are so many lovely new products in the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue you will simply fall in love with every page!  If you dont have a copy please feel free to contact me to arrange your own copy. 

Today I’m sharing a project using the gorgeous Mixed Bunch Stamp set and the new Blossoms Punch.

This is a sweet little folder made simply from two of our C6 envelopes stuck together. I’ve stamped the bold flower from the Mixed Bunch on the front then simply tied a Pink Taffeta Ribbon around the folder to hold it closed and popped a pretty daisy punched flower on the front .

The white daisy is just two flowers punched with the Blossoms Punch and then snipped to the centre to make the ‘daisy’ petals. I’ve then added a button for the centre with a little white Baker’s Twine bow in the centre.

For the cards I’ve used our Stampin’ Up! Notecards and Envelopes – I love these to pieces!

I’ve used the same bold flower stamp I used on the front and just did them in three different colours – So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Pool Party.

Daisy Notecards & envelopes

The two C6 Envelopes together have created a lovely little folder to present these cute cards in and I’ve popped the three cards in one side and three envelopes in the other.

Daisy Set

This would make a lovely gift for anyone and if you are a Hostess for a demonstration or workshop with me during April you will receive one of these as a Hostess gift.  This little set would make a perfect for Mother’s Day!

Do you love this little set?? well you too can view the video Tutorial done by my bestie Cristena – she does the loveliest things and if you’re looking for some online classes be sure to check out her Gettin Crafty Online Classes!

Now its time for you to hop along to the next blog in the ESAD Autumn-Winter Mini Blog Hop being the lovely Delys Cram from New Zealand who I am looking forward to catching up with at the Stampin’ Up! Convention in May.

Enjoy the Blog Hop and all the wonderful creations the girls have made and please be sure to leave a comment.

Have a wonderful Sunday!!




  1. I love the bright colours that you have used and what a fabulous idea. I was thinking along the same lines as Jane that my stall at the markets would look lovely with a couple of these sets on display for sale.

  2. I recognised Cristena’s project straight away Leonie and you have done a fantastic job recreating it. Bright, fresh and fun.

  3. These cards are gorgeous Leonie, simple, cheery and bright! So glad I included this set and punch on my order tonight 🙂

  4. Leonie what a bright and cheery gift set. Lovin the flower stamps and punch. Cheers Donna Zammit 🙂

  5. Oooh – Love it!!! That stamp set and punch should be on my doorstep tomorrow or Tuesday!!! Yippee!!! I think I saw that tutorial too and is on my list of things to do!! It’s gorgeous as always Leonie!!!!
