ESAD retired blog hop

You might have popped on over from the talented KELLY, or you might have just stumbled into our blog hop by “accident”, but you can start here and just continue around the circular blog hop until you get back to your original starting point!  Enjoy 25 blogs that all feature projects made with retiring products for your viewing enjoyment … Have fun!!

I had a duvet inner and needed a cover for it, and the pennant die makes it so much faster to cut out all those half diamonds than doing it by hand!  I LOVE the pennant die, especially with fabric, it’s so super fast to cut out fabric with.  I am still very much a beginner at this fabric / sewing stuff, but I am quite pleased with the way it turned out!

My Big Shot Club ladies will be getting step by steps instructions and tips on how to make it easier for this project shortly …

What is ESAD?

All of the participants of the blog hop today are members of ESAD.  ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.

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 it is needed.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please fee free to click HERE to join our wonderful group

Just in case you have got lost (or there is a link that isn’t working for you), here are the demonstrators participating in today’s blog hop:

I love the idea of the big shot to cut these, so much hard work avoided trying to make them all the same lol :) Colour combination is great.
