Sneak Peek Blog Hop Header-001 A new Catalogue is always exciting and there are so many new products for you to choose. The members of ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) have got together to present you a small tasting of some of the products from the 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalogue.

Now if you’ve been following the hop you’ve just come from the lovely Nicole Wilson’s blog.

ESAD Info Sneak Peek-001

My shares today focus mainly on the new Stampin’ Up! Gift Bag Punch Board and I have a video to show you how it works. It’s quite easy and will make your gift packaging just that bit more special.

I’ve made 2 Gift Bags. The first is suitable for a male gift and is demonstrated in the video.


I’ve used the Hardwood Stamp all over the card and dyed the Seam Binding to match the bag. I’ve also placed an extra score line on the bag so it will fold flat.


My second bag is made using Window Sheet and the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder through the Big Shot before putting it together.



The ribbon is the 1/4″ Whisper White Cotton Ribbon dyed with Mint Macaron Reinker and the flowers were made by my friend Virginia Hampson from the new Cotton Paper. We thought they just added a bit of pizzazz to the inside of the bag.


Products used:

  • Gift Bag Punch Board
  • Hardwood Stamp
  • Card – Tip Top Taupe; Very Vanilla; Early Espresso
  • Window Sheet
  • Big Shot – Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
  • Ribbon – Whisper White Seam Binding; 1/4″ Whisper White Cotton Ribbon
  • Ink – Tip Top Taupe
  • Reinkers – Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe
