E.S.A.D. Retired List Blog Hop



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 fee free to click here to join our wonderful group.


If you have been following the blog hop from the beginning you will have arrived here from Kari Hughes' blog.  Didn't get here from there?  All you have to do is grab a cuppa and follow the link from the bottom of my post to the next blog, and continue on until you have been around to see all of the fabulous creations we have made featuring products on the retired list.

And now, on with the show.....


I created this stationary box to showcase our gorgeous Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and the Christmas Classics stamp set.  This Jolly Holiday DSP is my all time fave Christmas DSP.  I'm so sad to see it go :(

Here it is  opened up:


There's plenty of room for full sized cards, gift cards and tags inside.

I made 2 of each of these full sized cards...

...and 2 of each of these 3" x 3" gift cards...

 ...and 2 of each of these gift tags...

Did you notice the post it  note holder and matching pen?  Here's a close up:


Very cute hey?  I kept everything very clean and simple, as is my usual style!

I have made one of these sets for a baby gift, but not as a Christmas set, I love the idea. I am sooooooo going to miss Jolly Holiday DSP, I love the brightness of the colours.
