Global Design Project #088

Here we are again...another week another challenge to participate over at the fabulous Global Design Project 

And this week we are CASEing the designer...and this week it is the work of the fabulously talented Shawn de Oliveira. I love Shawn's style, it is so clean and stylish...and how great is it having a man here in the stamping world!

And here is the beautiful card that Shawn has made to give us all inspiration for our own creations.


And here is my entry to this weeks challenge. I hope you like it, it was a super quick one for me to create this time...as I could here Kylie Bertucci's voice in my head saying "just stick it down". Thanks Kylie!










 Thanks for stopping by.

See you again soon!

I don't even know what to say...besides a very BIG thank-you to all the designers over at the Global Design Project who give us a new and fabulous challenge each and every week, and provide us with inspiration and encouragement constantly, thank-you.


And here is a little snap of my entry for that challenge


Now I had better get started on this weeks entry in the Global Design Project #88

Global Design Project #087

I missed playing along with the Global Design Project last week, as we had a SUPER busy week here  in our little cottage.

But I was looking forward to playing along again this week.


This weeks challenge has a theme, and the theme is 'cooking, baking & making'


As someone who enjoys baking and gifting homemade treats, this one really tickled my fancy!

So I decided to create a little gift bag for home baked goodies.


I hope you like it. 

Happy baking lovelies!!













Thanks for visiting

A quick one today…my entry for this weeks Global Design Project challenge.
This week is number 85 of the challenges, and it's a colour challenge, so it's one of my favourites…as I absolutely LOVE colour!

We were asked to choose 3 of our favourite colours from those below…so I chose, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron & Tip Top Taupe.



I hope you like it.

Global Design Project #084

I had made a promise to myself to participate in more design challenges. And even though this week has thrown me more than a few curve balls, I still managed to participate with the talented people over at the Global Design Project….just in time mind you, as a new challenge arrives tomorrow! EEEk!!

This week was "Case the Designer"
And we were very lucky to have the talented Michelle Last as our inspiration.

And here is her beautiful card, which we could use to inspire our own creation.


And here is my card. It is a bit of a step out of my comfort zone with this one…but I also promised myself to stretch my approach to card design too.

Hope you like it….it's a bright one!!!

This weeks theme is Sparkles / Bling


And here is my contribution.

Kylie's International Blog Highlight April 2017



You may have already noticed…at the moment I am challenging myself to take part in more design challenges.

This challenge is run by the lovely Kylie Bertucci (who happens to be the No.1 Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Australia, and 8th in the world!! Impressive hey)

It is a monthly challenge and this is the first time I will be playing along. The theme for this month was "Wedding", and as I don't make too many wedding cards usually, this really was a challenge for me.

I decided to stick with using Very Vanilla, with a touch of gold and a splash of Blushing Bride…which  I thought was fitting ;)

I made both a card and an opening gift tag, as I figured the card usually goes into an envelope, so all the prettiness is hidden! So this way, there is a little something pretty on the outside of the gift too.










To vote for me please go to this link 
And by voting for me, it will up my chances of being able to participate in a fabulous international blog hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci.



Thanks for your support and thanks for stopping by!
