Project Life® by Stampin' Up!® Hello Lovely Card Collection

On Monday I highlighted the wonderful Project Life® by Stampin' Up!® Hello Lovely card collection. I wanted to show you them all individually and close up.

Before I do however, I wanted to mention my day today and thank some lovely people. Our poor little dog Jasper started crying and whimpering last night - he was really hurting and we couldn't work out why... Took him to emergency and they were unsure what was going on too - Just that it was something to do with his spine. So it was a long night.... Making sure his pain was managed. I don't know how you parents out there with young children function?? Once night of being woken up a few times and I am smashed. So shout out to all of you Mums out there.

Jasper had a scan done today so we hopefully will find out in the next 24 hours what is going on. Look how cute he is! This was at the vet this morning. Thanks to all the lovely well wishes for him on Facebook today - don't you love our beautiful stamping community of wonderful people?? It is so special.

So here are my Project Life® by Stampin' Up!® Hello Lovely cards that I made I just love them!

Inside the above card - I used the project life journal cards to stick inside! So cool!

Mediterranean Blog Hop September - Thankfulness

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for September. This month our theme is Thankfulness as it is our last hop for the Mediterranean Trip Achievers. Starting next month we are going to start the Thailand achievers blog hop. We are all so grateful for this blog hop, for the opportunity that Stampin' Up!® has given us to have gone on this trip and earned it.

I am also thankful to all those that have supported the idea of having a global blog hop for those that achieved the trip! The clever Louise Sharp came up with the idea and I knew it was a brilliant one right from the moment she expressed it to me. So happy that it has been so successful and that we will be doing one for those that earned the Thailand Achievers blog hop. So look out for that next month.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Kylie Bertucci or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Kylie Bertucci.

Here is the card that I made for the hop today -

I had so much fun with one of my favourite colour combinations today! Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Night of Navy. Love! Aren't those dots totally gorgeous and fun? What a great way to say thank you to someone. Shows how versatile the Totally Trees stamp set is.

I love the strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock down the right hand side that has been stamped with one of the trees. You wouldn't know right? It looks like a cool geometric pattern not the side of a tree.

The sentiment is from the ultimate thank you stamp collection - One Big Meaning. Go no further for your go to thank you set. I used the Thank you from all of us set and used the markers to colour in what I wanted from the stamp and cut it out using the Project Life® by Stampin' Up!® Cards and Labels Framelits set. I LOVE that thinlit set. I raised it on the dimensional strips.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.

Global Design Project #55 | Theme Challenge

Thank you for joining me this week for an amazing new Global Design Project Challenge! We are inspired by a theme this week and I am excited about this one! It is a RAK challenge. Random Act of Kindness. We all love receiving special mail that isn't bills or advertising. A hand made card is so special.

One of my cards today I am going to be sending to my Mum! I often send RAK cards to fellow demonstrators or customers but my family do get neglected a bit. So I think that will make her very happy. She lives in New Zealand in the Bay of Islands.

Here are my RAK cards!

I used the stunning Hello Lovely Project Life® by Stampin' Up!® cards to make my own cards and don't I look like a professional? But all I did was add a sentiment. I will be adding some more photos and explanation tomorrow of the different stamps that I used for the sentiments so make sure you sign up to get my email updates HERE.

In the mean time head over the the Global Design Project for more inspiration from our amazing designers!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Paula Dobson

Thank you for joining us for another amazing Crazy Crafters blog hop! This time we are joined with the amazing Paula Dobson from New Zealand. Paula is a seriously talented stamper and is a Design team member on the Global Design Project. We all love her projects and were thrilled when she agreed to not only hop with us but to let us CASE - Copy and Selectively Edit her cards.

Everyone in the Crazy Crafters team went through Paula's blog and we all picked different cards that inspired us. Here is the card I chose of Paula's to be inspired by -

Here is my card - 

I loved Paula's technique of the sponging on embossing - so I used that same technique on my card and her layout too. I have been wanting to try out these gorgeous flower wreaths in the Ready to Pop stamp set for a while now so I am really happy I finally got to have a play with it! I have lots of other ideas for it too. I just think it is the cutest wreath of flowers.

I adore Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe together and the added Linen thread was exactly what this card needed as it was quite monochrome without it being the one colour sponged.

The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set - I stamped this in Tip Top Taupe to go with the small backing of the same colour on the card. Both the embossed resist pattern and the card front are both stuck down with dimensionals.

I am thrilled with my card today - so thank you so much for the inspiration Paula - my card wouldn't exist with out your inspiration! I love how we can be inspired by others and come up with something so different too! Same same but different.

Don't miss one of the Crazy Crafters Blogs today - Remember you are currently on my blog - Kylie Bertucci so have a look who is after me in the blog hop list.
