Global Design Project - Colour Challenge

I'm late. I'm late, I'm very, very late! I'm about 24hrs late actually - on posting for the Global Design Project this week. I have a good excuse, promise! My darling husband was made redundant last week and it's been a little bit crazy around here. Thankfully he has another job (huge relief) and I had to drive him to the city yesterday to start. Needless to say I was late getting home (it may or may not have been due that quick stop I made to Ikea!) Life huh, it gets in the way sometimes doesn't it?!

Moving onto the good stuff....we have a colour challenge this week and I kept it simple with a quick Christmas card. Even though it was quick and simple, I really like the simplicity of it.  
(Those Stitched Frames. Are they not gorgeous? Yep. I love them. Soooo, don't hate me, but they are on backorder at the moment (sad face) and Stampin' Up! are hoping to get them as soon as possible.)

Stampin' Friendships - Kylie Bertucci

'Awesomeness' - is that even a real word? Ummm - yeh it is! Especially when it relates to my amazing friend Kylie Bertucci.

I thought I might start blogging about all the special friendships I have made over the past 5 years I have been with Stampin' Up!. The first one will be with my close friend Kylie Bertucci. (Also because I had this card made for her over a month ago and really need to share it!)

Kylie and I met at a Stampin' Up! Convention in 2013, however we became close on our first Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip together to Utah - we had a blast during that trip and it really cemented our friendship. Since then we have travelled the world together with the Stampin' Up! trips and have supported each other while we grow our businesses and continue with the seasons of our life (not everything is about Stampin' Up! ya know!!) We talk or message daily and Kylie has been a huge support to me.

I made this for card for Kylie when she recently promoted to 'Platinum' title with Stampin' Up!. I am so proud of her and the hard work she has put into her business has paid off.

After our recent Onstage event in Brisbane a few weeks ago, Kylie is now ranked #8 in the world of Stampin' Up! - in which also places her #1 in Australia. WOW - what an amazing effort. Well done girlfriend. You truly do 'overwhelm me with your awesomeness'!

Kylie Bertucci and I in Brisbane this month:

During the Onstage event, I was talking to another demonstrator and she said "it's a funny thing this direct-sales business, because even though we are all friends, we are still in competition with each other" - and I agreed, because ultimately it is true. However, I have had time to process that comment and in the end we only rise by lifting others. Not only will our businesses grow, but so do our souls and we cannot do it all alone - in life or in business. Also, the friendships we make go far beyond ink and paper! 

Would you like to be part of the Stampin' Up! family and my team - the Tickled pINK Stampers? We are a wonderful group of like-minded crafters who lift each other up and enjoy our lives together, through friendships and our mutual love of all things craft! You can find out more by CLICKING HERE.

CASEing Connie Collins - Global Design Project

I love it when we get to CASE team designers on the Global Design Project for 'CASE the Designer' challenge. This week we are getting our inspiration from the amazingly talented and super lovely Connie Collins from the US.

The definition of CASE: Copy And Share Everything
Put simply, we get our inspiration from a particular project or creation. For this challenge we can use ANY element. You might be inspired by the colours, the stamp set or the card layout. However you are inspired, why not play along this week?

I truly love (just about) everything in the catalogue, but the Birthday Blooms set is one I think I'll be using for years to come. I adore this set! It's hard to come up with something as gorgeous as Connie, but the flower really does all the hard work here.
Now head on over to the Global Design Project and be inspired for another week of stunning cards from the Design Team.

Would like all the instructions to make this card? You can purchase the OCTOBER TUTORIAL BUNDLE and also receive another 11 beautiful projects from other talented demonstrators from around the world! CLICK HERE.

INKspired Blog Hop #46

Welcome to the INKspired Blog Hop this Sunday evening. You may have just hopped here from Maree McIntosh.

Every two weeks we have a sketch challenge and enjoy sharing our team creations with you. We have a great lineup this week, so please make sure you hop all the way around by hitting the next button at the bottom of the page. Here is this weeks sketch:

I am feeling way behind, which is generally the case this time of year! Everyone is getting ready to send Christmas cards and I have even started receiving some this week. I've noticed some people have their trees up and all their homes decorated. In my head I'm screaming "SLOW DOWN PEEPS - IT'S STILL NOVEMBER!" And here I am running like crazy to even get some sort of collection together to send to my beloved friends, family, team and customers. 

As you know I LOVE all the Project Life Card Collection packs. They are so beauiful and can make the most beautiful cards with limited time and fuss. I have used the Hello December 2016 pack on page 31 of the Holiday Catalogue.
I used the same sketch to create all four cards. These cards have no stamping and I have used the Christmas Trinkets Embellishments to them some little extra something special!
I'm not sure if you could tell from the above pictures, but I have also used the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. It's so gorgeous this paper and I used it for last weeks INKspired hop and have now can't get enough of it!
Have you started getting ready for Christmas? Are you one of those super-organised people who has everything out for Christmas already? If you are, I am jealous and we can no longer be friends! Hahaha. Jokes. We can still be friends, but you now need to come over and get me organised. I'll put the kettle on. :)

Next on the hop is the amazingly talented Barbara Williams
