SAB Blog Hop Banner

Hi Stampers,

I am super excited to be part of this years ESAD Sale-a-bration blog hop.

For those that have popped over from Jenny Hayward www.astampingjourney.wordpress.com welcome to my blog!

What is 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 feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

Here’s the projects I have created using this years gorgeous SAB products (all of the following cards are sized 3″ x 3″ to fit inside our mini square envelopes 107309);
