ESAD Retirement list Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop - this month featuring our Stampin' Up! Retirement list. If you have hopped here from Rachael's blog or joined the hop here via a search engine welcome. Please continue to hop about the list to bid a fond farewell to some wonderful stamp sets, papers, punches, Framelits and embellishments as we make room for our exciting new goodies.

Will I miss the outgoing In-Colours? Yes I will!

Cucumber crush is tonight's - sorry your leaving - featured colour and the Stamp set is Peaceful Pines.


Not a difficult card to recreate but a lovely Christmas card all the same and way more sparkly in real life. I used this card for part of my monthly Stamp-a-Stack class and my ladies loved it.
We make 3 "Occasion" Cards all the same and 3 Christmas cards once a month together - when Christmas sneaks up on us as it always does we will be ready this year!

 Retiring Items Used for this Card 
Some items are not retiring like the Large letters Dies - Oh the bundle is but not the individual items so stamps and framelits carry over which is great for us Scrappers.

 Moving Forward in the new Annual Catalogue items.

 
I couldn't pick just one set or item to focus on so you will continue to see more retiring items featured in my posts right up to the last minute - with some sneak peaks thrown in for a bit of variety. But for now continue along the hop to Narelle's Blog and lets see what she has to show us.

  1. Gorgeous Courtenay! Cucumber Crush was such a unique colour, it's going to be missed by many! And I don't feel like I got enough use out of the those gorgeous pines! Oh well - excited for all the new things to come! Kelly x

  3. Love this Courtenay! Cucumber Crush is my favourite green, I'm so sad it's going! It really sets of the pine trees so well, love how they fade into the distance.
