I also got a postcard from Sayerah Deasey - a demo who was holidaying in Paris! PARIS! and she thought to take time out and remember me :) I love Stampin' Up! and all the friends I have met through this awesome company! I think my birthday is well and truly over.... but how lucky was I??
The even better thing about the ESAD birthday fairies is that - just because your birthday has been, doesn't mean the cards will stop! We are all busy with different things going on, so cards arrive whenever people have time to get them in the mail! Which means - extra long birthday wishes!
Isn't this an amazing creation?? this was made by Rochelle Blok - I love the clouds. I must have a go at that technique. She makes it look so easy :)
Sarah Tidey - that little bird tag swings freely - how cute is that??
This one isn't an ESAD card at all - this is from one of my friends/colleagues/customers who is WAY more talented than I am! I copy most of my ideas - she comes up with hers on her own. Thanks Helen :)
More ESAD birthday fairy cards - this stunning creation is from Felicity Fernandez. I wish I could have got a better picture - it is gorgeous in real life. Such a lovely colour combination - crumb cake, black and pool party. And i love the new butterfly punch :)
Jenny Adams used the Designer Paper stacks to create this lovely monotone (with an extra colour!) card.
Julie Kirby made this card with the cutest little ribbon flower.
Here is my first attempt at the ornament on the front of the holiday catalogue. I didn't have the stamp set at the time, but did have the framelits, so I copied Linda Heller's idea and used the delectable Candlelight Christmas specialty designer paper. The tulle is also on here, and OMG it feels so fine! at the end of the mini catalogue, I think I will have a pile of the tulle left, as I just can't bring myself to use it! Same goes for the flocked paper in the DSP pack. It is so lovely to just sit and stroke!! (I'm not the only one who does that am I??)
I have been having major issues with blogger for a couple of years now - but I don't like change, and so I am DETERMINED to keep giving it a go! It seems to be working for me now.... so fingers crossed I can keep it going! Thanks for bearing with me if you're still here! And thanks for stopping by if you're new!
As a demonstrator I am part of ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) which is an awesome Facebook community of demonstrators from all over Australia and New Zealand. One of the great things the group does is "birthday fairies" - and it was my birthday last month - and I got a WHOLE HEAP of handmade goodness in my mailbox.
This gorgeous creation is from the super talented Alison Barclay from Gothdove Designs. The stamp set used is Betsy's Blossoms - and there is some of the super scrummy ribbon that is available free with a $70 purchase this month.
How bright and cheerful is this card from Amanda Hill?
Anna Mathieson used the new set "Happy Hour" - and more of that yummy ribbon. I LOVE the lemon slice in the glass :)
