You Can Create It – International: July 2019

Mach was Draus

Hi friends! On the recent Stampin’ Up! incentive trip I had the privilege of meeting some of the talented members of the You Can Create It monthly mail-out challenge group. In German it’s called ‘Mach was draus’.

I love how we can be from different parts of the world and speak different languages, but we are all connected through our love of papercraft.

I was honoured to be offered a spot on the International Design Team!

Because this is my first month I thought I’d give you a quick explanation.

Every month a little packet of papercraft supplies becomes the basis of our challenge. Our mission is to turn those elements into a card, or gift packaging, or some other finished project.

In Europe these kits are available for purchase so crafters from all over can join in. I’m thrilled to announce that from October you’ll be able to purchase your quarterly kits from me right here in Australia! Stay tuned for more details, but between now and then I’ll be joining in as a guest designer so you can see how it all works.

The challenge in July was to use 2 x pieces of Bird Ballad designer series paper (6×6″) plus 2 of the Bird Ballad trinkets. The best thing about using these gorgeous patterned papers is that they have two sides! So with four different patterns I had a lot of fun creating the card.

Yes there is quite a bit of fussy cutting but the sharp paper snips did the job beautifully. I just steered the paper 🙂
