What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

Ustamp International Swap

I have recently been involved with the last round of Ustamp Bigshot Brilliance and it was just fantastic. There are even designers from NZ designing Paula Dobson and Bron Heslop, and Tracey Old. If you want to know more about Ustamp or want to join pop on over to Ustamp and it will show you how to join.

But photos I have heaps for you, these were from the international swap I took part in on the last round of Ustamp and WOW was blown away with the cards that I received.
