Global Design Project - CASE the Designer Challenge #gdp116


I have submitted some creations for this weeks Global Design Project 'CASE the Designer' Challenge #gdp116. 
Janneke De Jong is the Designer to CASE this week, and I love her Clean and Simple design.
CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit


Be prepared for some cuteness...
 
I made 'Congratulations' cards using the Sale-a-Bration *'Party Pandas' stamp set, and the sentiment is from 'Fabulous Flamingo' stamp set.
*Party Pandas are a FREE item during Sale-a-Bration available 3rd January, 2018.
 
My husband and I are Instructors for Taekidokai (Mixed Martial Arts), and we had Junior and Senior Grading on the weekend.
We are very proud of our members, and I made 15 cards for our Juniors.
 
The cards are using the colours of the Junior tips and belts they achieved in the Grading test. They are all so dedicated, train hard and have fun every week, and this was my little bit of something personal for all their hard work.
 
Our 2 boys with Sensei, and their new Purple belts.
 
The Kiama crew and our Junior Purple belts - we are so proud of these little guys and girls.
 
Thankyou so much for visiting my blog, and I hope you like my 'Party Panda' cards? D x

I just love brown paper packages tied up with string!

I have wrapped an 'Acetate Card Box' with the 'Kraft' cardstock from the 'Merry Little Christmas' cardstock pack. Adding some gorgeous 'Jute Twine' - on the 'Discounted Products List', and a handmade tag stamped using the 'Merry Little Labels' stamp set.

The tag measures 5.4cm x 9cm (2 1/8" x 3 1/2").
I added a 'Soft Suede' reinforcement ring punched with the '1/2" Circle Punch', and added handrawn detail around the edges using a 'Soft Suede' Stampin' Write Marker. 
The holly leaves and berries were coloured with 'Old Olive and Real Red' Stampin' Write Markers. (Get in quick because these Markers are on the 'Discounted Products List'.)

5 cards and envelopes tucked away inside the card box!

'Kraft' gift wrapped card and envelope stamped with the 'Hearts Come Home' stamp set. 

2 different tags and 'Linen Thread' for the 'Kraft' cards. 
Tags measure 5cm x 7.5cm (2" x 3")

'Whisper White' gift wrapped card and envelope.

I used all the stamps from the 'Merry Little Labels' stamp set, and added some lovely pine needle die-cuts from the 'Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies' for the greenery.

Thankyou for visiting me today, and there are some really beautiful creations by the fabulous Design Team. Please check them out, because I have had a sneak peek and I know you will love them all. Have a fabulous Friday. D x

International Highlights Winners Blog Hop December

 I am so lucky, and I am one of the Top Ten Winners from Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight for November. I am taking part in a Blog Hop with the Top Ten Winners and the theme is 'Love'.
Click here to see my entry in the Blog Highlight from November.


And here are my 'Love' theme creations using the 'Ribbon of Courage' stamp set for this little Blog Hop with 9 amazingly talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.


I dressed up these divine little 'Treat Tubes' for my friends 'Girls Night In 2017'. A night dedicated to our friend Beverley - a Breast Cancer Survivor, and in memory of many special women. (A fundraiser and awareness for women's Cancer research and prevention programs by the Cancer Council.)
A huge thankyou also to Stampin' Up! Australia who sent me a Donation Box to contribute raffle prizes for the night.


Holy moley - the cutest pink treats, EVER!


Gorgeous Gift Tags for the raffle prizes.

The raffle prizes were retired Stamp sets, Embellishments, Ribbons and Designer Series Paper.
Pretty pink packages tied up with retired 'Strawberry Slush' Baker's Twine; donated by Stampin' Up! Australia!

Oh, and my lovely friend Cheryl raised an astounding $1805.00AUD on the night. 
I have attended 7 out of 9 years of these wonderful fundraisers, however, Cheryl has been hosting these wonderful fundraisers for a little longer.

Thankyou for visiting me, and get hopping to see some other wonderful creations. The list of amazingness is below. D x
