ESAD January - June Mini & Saleabration Hop


Welcome to the ESAD January - June Mini & Sale a bration Hop!

I'm not sure if you have joined me directly, or if you have just popped in from Rochelle’s Blog, but I'm glad you're here...

I cannot believe that we are now in 2021, but I have a HEAP of new toys to start playing with, & I finally have access to my craft desk, AND after 3 years, I finally set up my google mini, so I have music…. Needless to say, now that the silly season is over, I will be playing, & soon I will have a lot more to show you.

Today this blog hop is all about the January - June Mini & Sale a bration Catalogues, & I have chosen to use the Sand & Sea Suite. 
I’ll be honest, I actually made this frame for my sister, & added in a few of her favourite colours, so the colours are not exactly as the suite would use, but I think they match in really well.

There is so much to love about this set, & I guess it doesnt help that I love everything ocean related, but there are stamps, dies, an embossing folder & paper that all match each other. Plus I had to add in some of the gorgeous little glittery "opal rounds"

Here is another photo that shows the layers of the project, however my photo doesn't show the amazing 3D effect that the embossing folder produces on the shells 😞

I thought I would also show you my new desk top tool caddy, as it features the new Specialty Designer Paper “ Love you Always”
My old caddy was just not big enough to hold all my MUST HAVE tools, so as I was finally getting access to a permanent crafting desk, I bit the bullet & made another Caddy that holds exactly what I need 😀

It only has a small amount of decoration, but functionality was the priority.
I LOVE this paper, but boy was it hard to photograph!

That is all I have so far, so please pop on over to check out Jenny’s blog next,
