Thanks to Tami White for the inspiration for the Santa Pillow boxes, Diana Gibbs for the #2 Boxes, I've seen the apron cards a few places, but I go this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers (I think!)
The Santa, Mrs Claus, Snowman, Elf and Reindeer boxes were courtesy of Gretchen Barron (you can purchase a tutorial on her blog to make these cute as boxes!!).

Once again, this is the ESAD Blog Hop. What is ESAD you say?
ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and NZ) Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators for Stampin' Up!
We 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 - http://www.esad-su.ning.com - to join our wonderful group.
Let's get going with the fun stuff! You should have just arrived from Steph's blog - http://www.stampingwithsteph.com.au . This hop is focused on using the new Big Shot! I absolutely love this machine and I don't know how I ever got by without it! It makes crafting and cardmaking so easy.
I love using the new colour Rich Razzleberry. It is so elegant, so I thought it would be perfect for doing Mother's Day cards. I've also used the top note die on the card and stamped it with the new Medallion stamp in the mini. Soft Suede goes so well with Rich Razzleberry. So in this set of card and Pillow box I have used - Top Note Die and Pillow Box Die, Very Vintage Wheel (card Background), Vintage Vogue Stamp set, Medallion Stamp, Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp set, Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry Ink, Soft Suede Ribbon, Half pearl from the Prettys Kit, Dazzling Diamonds, 1 3/4" Punch, Word Window punch, Versamark.
This next one I have used the Cottage Garden DSP and the Fancy Favour Die to create the box - how quick was that!! I've also used the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die, Cottage Garden Stamp set and the Teeny Tiny Sentiments again.
We are offering blog candy again. So what you need to do to go in the draw is visit every blog on the hop and leave a comment on each one. Once you have gone all the way round and get back to me, you need to email Sharlene - firstname.lastname@example.org and she will put your name into the draw.
Now onto your next stop...you are now heading over to check out what Nikki has created - click here - http://www.inkyart.com.au

Thanks for all the positive responses to the ESAD Blog Hop! I do have some more things I've been playing with and would love to get them up here for all to see...but I can't find my camera charger anywhere and am currently turning the house upside down to find it!! I think I put it in a safe place, so I may never find it!!!
Hope you have all had a wonderful Easter weekend.

I hope you're ready for the ESAD Blog Hop! Better go grab yourself a cuppa as you'll be hopping for a while. What is ESAD you say? ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) 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 are again offering Blog Candy for our blog hop. What you need to do is complete the blog hop until you get back to me. Once you have visited and commented on every blog then you will need to email Sharlene at email@example.com who will then put your name into the draw for the blog candy. There will be one winner from New Zealand and one winner from Australia, so start hopping!
So let's get going!! You should have just arrived from Danielle Daws' Blog ( http://www.danielledaws.blogspot.com/2010/04/910-autumn-winter-mini-catalogue-blog.html ) and now you're here!!
For my first project I've used the New Cottage Garden Stamp Set and the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. I just love the new In Colours as well, I have used the Rich Razzleberry in this card along with our regular colours, Old Olive and Orchid Opulence - a perfect match for the DSP. I've also used the new 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon - where are the polka dots, you ask? The ribbon is plain on the back, so you can use it with or without the polka dots! I finished the flower and the butterfly off with a bit of dazzling diamonds.
The next lot of cards use all three of the new In Colours - Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede - they go so well together. I've made 3 little cards for each packet here (1 of each design in each pack). I've used the Big Shot Top Note Die to create the little bag topper and then embellished them with the In Colour Ribbons and made a bit of a pleat/ruffle, just for something different!
I have used the new Vintage Vogue Stamp set to create these cards, along with the new In Colour inks and Ribbons.

This next card I cased from my sister who cased from somewhere else - not sure, but I have seen it around a bit in my travels. So quick to make up and I think it's so clever.
I finally made a 'One Sheet Box' (tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers), actually I made a few. This one is my favourite - I don't know why I waited so long to make one!
Here are a few different ones as well - we did the Easter one in a recent workshop.
And here are some Easter Cards - using the same layout as the cards above.
