ESAD FAVOURITES FROM THE 2017/18 ANNUAL CATALOGUE BLOG HOP





I hope you are enjoying all the wonderful projects in the ESAD Favourites from the 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop.

I wonder what products will be everyone's favourite??

You may have come from the wonderful Kathryn Ruddick or be starting the hop here with me, Rosalie Desmond.

With so many amazing products it is so hard to decide which is my favourite, so today I will share my favourite at the moment!

I have actually combined two of my favourites - Climbing Orchid and Sheet Music stamp sets. I love the way these cards turned out and the way the two sets combine.





I love the new mini chevron ribbon, it is so soft and easy to use, so I have placed a small piece on the Bermuda Bay card. I love the look of the coloured ribbon on top of the burlap.





For this one, I don't currently have any Melon Mambo ribbon so I had to get creative. I cut a small strip of cardstock to give a similar affect.






You may be wondering what ESAD is?







Thank you for joining me today. I hope you have fun and enjoy hopping around the whole hop. Next you will find the lovely, Linda Whalley.

RETIFORM SCRAPBOOKING

Sometimes we have a photo that screams to be made into a pretty scrapbooking page. I have always loved this picture. It was the first family picture after our daughter was born - almost 12 years ago.





For this page I have used a technique called retiform. To create the panels I used Crumb Cake to give the boarders of each segment. I then used random stamps from Beautiful Bouquet in create the background 12"x12", using Perfect Plum, Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo.




I used inspiration for this 12"x12" scrapbooking page from an earlier project were I used retiform. Click here to see.

Measurements:

Very Vanilla Scrapbooking Background Page 12"x12"
Perfect Plum Photo Mat 11.5 x 16.5cm
Lemon Lime Twist Photo Mat 10.5 x 15.5cm
Scraps Very Vanilla  and Lemon Lime Twist for embellishments

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WITH RETIFORM

I was first introduced to the Retiform technique by a lovely friend, Vicki. I decided that I needed to check out this great looking technique after seeing her lovely card. In between seeing Vicki's creation and me finally getting around to it, I have now seen it pop up everywhere on the internet.

Here is what I came up with using the Beautiful Bouquet.




I love how these colours work together.





Add a little sentiment, in this case from the same stamp set- Beautiful Bouquet and some enamel shapes, and its done.




Measurements:

Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm
Whisper White Layer 14.3 x 9.5cm
Scrap Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White

CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP WITH TANYA BOSER



Welcome once again to a Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. This time we are CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by Tanya Boser. It's so lovely to have Tanya joining us today, her work is absolutely amazing. You should check out her blog. We hope you find great inspiration from todays projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me. Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

I loved looking at Tanya's blog for something to CASE, however it did make it very difficult to only choose one! I absolutely love her work. Here is what I was inspired to make.





I took a lot of inspiration from Tanya but then put my own twist on it.





I decided that I would emboss in Copper, so that the floral image I chose from the Wood Words stamp set would stand out.



I did use the colours exact colours Tanya used - Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim  and Lemon Lime Twist. They look so different on Whisper White rather than the Glossy Paper in Tanya's creation.




Measurements:


Whisper White Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm
Lemon Lime Twist Layer 14 x 9.4cm
Whisper White Layer 13.5 x 8.9cm
Scraps of Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist and Vellum

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Although I love ribbon, love both the feel and the look, I have a tendency not to use it often. I broke that tradition with these cards today.









Both of these cards are using the 2017-2019 In-colours. Both are the same design, just with different colours.




The matching 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon is so soft, its a delight to tie into a bow.



Measurements:


Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm
First Layer 14.2 x 10cm
Whisper White Layer 14.3 x 9.5cm
Designer Series Paper 8 x 9cm
Ribbon

PRETTY LITTLE WOOD WORDS

Every now and then I like to do something a little different with my cards.





This time I cut the front a little shorter than the back and then punch out a part shape using the pretty label punch. I then punched out a pretty label in Daffodil Delight card stock and added a hand cut images saying "hello friend" from Wood Words on top.





The front panel was decorated with the floral image from Wood Words, coloured with Stampin' Write markers. I hand cut a few flowers from this image so I could pop them out using dimensionals.

Measurements:


Calypso Coral Card Base 29.6 x 10.5cm, scored at 14.8cm then 2.5cm cut off the front
Whisper White Layer 11 x 9.4cm
Inside Layer 11 x 9.4cm
Delightful Daisy DSP 2 x 9.4cm
Scraps of Whisper White and Daffodil Delight
