YCCI: Tropical Oasis

Published by under cards | May 02 2020

Welcome and thank you for joining me for Day 2 of the Great Australian Craft Show (read about Day 1 here), and it also coincides with our monthly YCCI You Can Create It post.

[If you’re new to my site, you can learn more about this fun international by-mail program in my launch post. FYI: I have just 1 leftover kit for the May-June 2020 mail out. First one to message me about it gets it – only $25 includes postage to anywhere in Australia]


A Tropical Oasis? Yes please!

It’s freezing cold today and I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind being in a tropical oasis right about now. Just hearing the name of this suite of products almost takes me there.  Hmmm. I can almost smell the Pina Colada.

This video shows some fantastic hints and tips about the products that make up this suite – it was a lightbulb moment for me with that burlap trim! Many of the products in this suite are retiring so if anything grabs your eye you can get them here (Australia only). It also happens to be the paper that was included in the April YCCI kits that were sent out earlier this month. 

YCCI April Packs

This month’s pack included:

I stuck to a favourite go-to layout to make this card for a friend.

Colours used were Old Olive and Real Red.
I’m totally in love with these new Stitched So Sweetly dies – they have quickly gone to the top of my favourites list.


Design Team Projects

Want to see what our talented YCCI Design Team created?

Of course you do! Be ready to be wowed because they have seriously outdone themselves this time.

[If the links for the designer’s names don’t work, check back in a couple of hours. Their posts won’t go live until 5pm Mel time – I’m posting this early for the GACS2 visitors xxx]

Thanks for visiting today. Now it’s time for me to get back to my tropical oasis…

Happy stamping,
