ESAD 2018 Retirement List Blog Hop

Welcome to yet another wonderul ESAD blog hop!
I am so lucky to be in this group of talented demonstrators (friends) and I hope that you enjoy all our projects using retiring products from the current Annual and Occasions Catalogues

You have hopped on over from the lovely Courtenay's page.

Yes it is very exciting that there is a new annual catalogue due out soon but it is really sad to say goodbye to some of our favourites.

Well I can't say that this was my favourite bundle in the annual catalogue but I did love it from the first time I saw it! This is the first time I have actually made something with it. I used the retiring Perfect Plum & Elegant Eggplant as well as the Myths and Magic glimmer paper.
I may be a bit naughty and actually have a few uninked sets still that are retiring......

  • Stamps: You Move Me (retiring)
  • Ink:  Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant (both retiring)
  • Card: Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Myths and Magic Glimmer (all retiring) and whisper white
  • Tools: Layering Square Framelits & Move Me thinlits with the bigshot as well as the Circle Tab Punch
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals 

and I have also made a card (for an order, the engagement party was last night good timing) that has a returning colour as well as a new colour and an outgoing stampset!

  • Stamps: Heart Happiness (retiring)
  • Ink:  Coastal Cabana (returning) & Lovely Lipstik (new incolour) 
  • Card: Coastal Cabana, Lovely Lipstick, Whisper White and Silver foil
  • Tools: Sweet & Sassy Framelits (retiring) & Softly Falling Embossing Folder with the bigshot
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals and Wink of Stella

arrggghh my favourite heart framelits are retiring!! I can't believe it!
