ESAD blog Hop Time – Seasonal Catalogue

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog, I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far, you should have come from Yvonne walker,

I have used the Pin wheel die for my card, I also have a card made by Anna Mathieson who unfortunately had to pull out at the last minute but made this beautiful card using the swallowtail stamp.



and with the envelope. the insides of my cards always match the envelope:


Stamp: Wishes Your Way

DSP: Comfort Cafe.

Card: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze.

Other: Pin Wheel Die, Glimmer Brad, Twine, Dimensionals, tooth pick.

Here is another card using the pin wheel die, this card was inspired by a swap from Rachael Knight.


One of the ladies had to pull out of this blog hop due to health, so I offered to place a few cards on here using the Swallowtail stamp so here are a few samples using the swallowtail stamp, the first one was made by Anna Mathieson


She has heat embossed the butterfly with Pool Party embossing powder. and used Champagne Shimmer mist with a aqua painter and coloured it in.

Here is the second card, this one was made by Heather over at, she made this one for a team swap.


What is ESAD?

New Colour Families

4 April 2013
Announcing our Colour Refresh! We love colour and we know that you do too. Colour is fundamental to who we are and what we offer. It’s important for us to stay up-to-date with colour trends so we are thrilled to share our updated line of colours, and hope you will be as excited as we are by the new possibilities!
Why now? In 2010 we did a big colour renovation and shared our plans for smaller colour refreshes every three to five years to keep our colours on trend. Well it has been three years and we are excited to announce that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalogue will include 10 new colours (most of which are returning In Colors from previous years)! We are welcoming back some of your favourites, moving some colours around, and introducing three brand-new colours, so take a look!
Beginning on 4 April 2013, all retiring/discontinued colour products (i.e. ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) will be available only while supplies last. This means that some products will not be available through the retired list period. We did anticipate increased demand and based our forecasts for these retiring colours on historical sales information from previous colour transitions.

Get your orders in quick before they sell out.
