Sneak Peak - 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue ESAD Blog Hop

If you have traveled to me from Monique Fielder, welcome and I am sure you enjoyed seeing what she created this week.  I have chosen our new punch board addition to showcase this week.

The Gift Bag Punch Board

Using the new Gift Bag Punch Board with our new Bohemian DSP as our feature paper and colours.
A Bag, a box and a card with a matching envelope.

The greeting card with a envelope made on the Gift Bag Punch Board and a belly band to hold it all together. 

This bag was made using a 12 x 9 piece of cardstock and the Large bag markings on the punch board. The top is folded over the width of the score line from the punch board.

A little gift box using the medium score line on the punch board.

 These gift bags are made using the new In Colours, The Neutrals DSP and the Gift Bag Punch Board. You can see Small Medium and Large large bags then their bases.

Thanks for popping in - Now it is time to hop on over and see what Donna Chapman has created, and keep hopping around each blog until you get back to where you started from. Feel free to Pin as you go - I sure did!

Punch board addition

There is a newbie on the horizon.

We love our Envelope punch board and Gift box punch board so I excited to say there is a new addition to this wonderful family. You read my previous post about pre-order well I got my hands on the new Gift Bag punch board because of this.
My little Miss 10 had a birthday party at the local cake decorating shop - I love the options for kids parties these days. In my day (oh boy I sound like my Nan) we had a pool party for summer birthdays or a movie night for winter parties not any of this cool stuff my kids have been invited to. 
Back to it - I thought a cup cake decorating party needed a cupcake card - score with the new Sprinkles of Life Stamp set. I also needed to wrap the present in this case a pretty necklace and earrings. So out came some of the DSP from Sale-A-Bration (SAB will be back next January) as this little lady likes pale pinks and blues. 

You can find more inspiration for this stamp set on Pinterest - I have a board full of cute ideas to inspire you.
This used the new stamp set, the Envelope punch Board and the new Gift Bag punch board.
This bag is the large so cut 12x8 and I scored about 2 inches along one long side so it could be folded over to give the decorative feature of complimenting colour. 

I will do more with the punch board over the next week or so and share the cool things I discover.

Sneak Peak of the upcoming Catalogue release.

With all the chat about the net I am sure you are aware Stampin' Up! has a new catalogue commencing on the 2nd of June. 
This date is super special as on that day only - you can shop from all 3 current catalogues published by Stampin' Up!
Catalogues can be seen HERE but the new one will not be available till the 2nd. Message me if you would like your own copy now.
Get your wish list ready, team up with a friend and share the rewards. If you have an order over $300 you will get the great hostess rewards on offer. Then on the other hand if your wish list is that long - like mine, you might want to think seriously about joining to shop with a discount. (This set is on the pre-order list for those that join before 2nd June)

Onto my latest cards using the new RMHC set Sprinkles of Life, the coordinating punch and the new in-colours. 

I can see this becoming a popular set. 
The best bit $3 AUD from the sale of every set goes to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Convention 2015

My What a wonderful 3 days of Inspire Create Share Convention 2015.
To say I've had a ball is an understatement.

A picture tells a thousand words so here are some of my favourite photos.

The beautiful Gold Coast Australia showed us a years worth of weather over the 3 days including a Cyclone - man after the last few weeks at home I felt a bit like a storm chaser.

My hotel view day one! Man did that change over the 3 days.

Day 2 before the storm hit

My Share offering.

Some of the great trades I scored myself! 

Some wonderful new goodies to look forward to - 

Make and Takes - a big part of Convention.

A photo opportunity and a chance to rub shoulders of those we talk to (sometimes on a regular basis other times once a year) 

Beautiful Claire from Demonstrator Support Australia.

One of my favourite presenters Bonnie from the USA

A New Catalogue- yay.
