Christmas in July Blog Hop

Posted on July 23, 2010 at 7:55 PM

I hope you’re ready for the ESAD Christmas in July Blog Hop!

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!


We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors but we share our love for what we do with each other as Demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps and we are always there to help and support each other when its needed.


So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.


You should hopefully have come to my blog from checking out Richelle Fletcher's creations creations and if not just follow the circuit and you will find your way along to each of the participating blogs.

The project I have today is along the Christmas theme and I while its not the initial project I had planned to do, I still think that it is pretty good and it leads me into promoting some classes that I am running so that you can make your own.

Punch Pals Christmas Stationary Box, complete with Cards, Small Gift Cards with mini envelopes and Gift Card Holders. What’s so special or different about these cards? Well not only do they look great, but they are all made out of acetate just for something different. They come packaged in a great fold out stationary box, that I have also decorated in the same theme and includes a booklet for Christmas Card and Gift Giving / To Do List details, that you will be able to use year after year.

Complete Set - pictured below:

Withe the Stationary Box shell, my friend Sharon Sweet and I modified a US template made by Jackie Topia to suit our Australian card sizes.

The stamp set used is my favourite Christmas Set – Punch Pals

Class information is detailed below, but for those Blog hoppers don’t forget I would love for you to leave any comments and your next stop is Katrina Criglington, so please go check out Katrina's creation at

Comments - Please note: my blog has a feature that I cannot turn off or stop (but members can, so please feel free to join my site, its free) – otherwise you will receive an email each time someone leaves a comment. You can either just ignore and delete these emails or join my site, which is quite easy to do and easily turn off the pesky notification feature. I do hope this does not deter you from leaving comments.

Class Information

Ok so you want to make your own Punch Pals stationary box and matching acetate cards? I will be running  a few classes so that you can make your own.

However there are a few steps involved, so for any evening classes they will be split into two classes - in one class you will make and decorate the Stationary Box including the Gift Giving Booklet and in another class you will make all the cards - you can attend both classes or just one. I will also be running an afternoon class which we will make the complete set - (includes lunch and afternoon tea).

Class dates are: Stationary Box – Wednesday 4 August 2010, 7pm.

Christmas Cards, gift cards and Gift Card holders - Wednesday 11 August 2010, 7pm.

Complete Christmas Stationary Box – 21 August 2010, 12pm – 5pm.
