ESAD - Favourites from the 2017/18 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue Blog Hop


Welcome everyone, This ESAD Blog Hop excites me as I got to play with my very favourite suite in the whole entire 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' Up catalogue... If you follow me here or on FB's many groups I am in you will have probably guessed which suite I will be using.



You have just come from Rebecca Scurr

My absolute favourite products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue would have to be the Naturally Eclectic Suite on page 132.  The stunning samples caught my eye immediately as soon as I saw them.

I had all of these cutouts and this background, that created with embossing paste. So with these pieces I wanted to create a Happy Birthday card for my Sister in law.



Lots of things went onto the card and then I pulled some pieces off as I wasn't completely happy with it, I don't think I am the only one who changes their mind during the process of making projects...AM I ??? I embossed the leaves onto the actual card and then wished I hadn't of... I also put all the blue flowers on and so glad that I didn't stick them as I hated it. PHEW....



Next I wanted to use the Happy Birthday Thinlits on the front of the card and was very undecided about what colour DSP or cardstock to use...So I tested the 2 different types on my card... I had to go with my favourite colour cardstock - the new InColor 2017-2019 Lemon Lime Twist...


Once I had changed the font to Lemon Lime Twist I was extremely happy with my card and I knew that my SIL would be too

Here are another couple of cards that I have made using this set and if you look back at this post you will see a Scrapbooking layout that I used Oh So Eclectic too...
So can you see why it is my favourite, Do you like it too???
