ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop Sneak Peek


Hello and welcome to our latest Blog Hop. Today we are showcasing products from the new annual catalogue which will be available from June 4th. You may have arrived from seeing Nicole's fabulous creation but if you started here, click the 'Next' button at the bottom of this post to continue hopping.


I live in a leafy street very close to a river and our garden is always full of birds. I love watching their antics and listening to their songs and was delighted when I saw the new bird-themed products.
For my project today I chose to use one of our new In Colours called Terracotta Tile and items from the Bird Ballad Suite. The Box was inspired by a gift box I saw a couple of years ago made by Linda Parker. The box is made from a single piece of cardstock and covered with panels of  the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The 'roof' section was dry embossed with the Corrugated embossing folder. I cut the hole in the front of the box using the 1 3/8" circle from the Layering Circle dies and covered it with window sheet to stop the contents from falling out.
I stamped the branch and birds from the Free As A Bird stamp set with Memento ink, coloured them with Blends and then cut them out with my snips.


To accompany my gift box I made a thank you card. I used the new Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut the frame from Terracotta Tile cardstock and attached it to the card front. I then masked the frame and stamped the little flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set around the frame. The 'nest' was made using the Sprig Punch. I stamped, coloured and cut out the bird and then tucked it into the nest. To finish the card I made a bow of Whisper White Baker's Twine coloured with Balmy Blue Blends and attached a little antique coloured flower from the Bird Ballad Trinkets.


I chose to fill my box with chocolates to give as a thank you gift.


All products used are available to purchase from my Online Shop here

  17. This is gorgeous, Denise! The little birdhouse is of course perfect with this suite (and better filled with chocolate than eggs, right?!) but my favourite detail from both creations is the birds' nest on the card. So clever! I'm very pleased to see you have a new blog, hopefully we will be seeing lots of your fabulous creations.
