Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest Cindy Schuster


Thank you for joining us for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop.
If you haven't joined us before, Welcome!

You may have just come from the previous person or you may be starting here at my blog Michelle Mills. If you lose your way and get off track, there is a full list of this hops participants further down the post.

I hope as you hop around you find lots of ideas and inspiration for your projects.

For this hop, our special guest is U.S Demonstrator Cindy Schuster of 

As always, we get to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the guest.

I chose this project of Cindys to CASE


and here is my version


Now I'm going to be a bit cheeky and admit I have CASE'd two demos in this hop!

I have followed Cindys layout as I just love the simplicity of it and the circle in the middle being the centre piece, but quite often I get stuck for color combos and I do struggle in this area.

I saw a stunning project recently made by Dutch Demo Janneke de Jong using this colour combo I have used in my project above....so 2 birds with one stone right?

Ive also seen a few cards pop up using the Affectionately Yours designer paper so I just HAD to use that as well. OH and the Copper!!! It is all just beautiful.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
Thank you also to Cindy for hopping with us.
Remember to hop all the way round to see the rest of the amazing CASEs.

Until next time
Happy Stamping (tap tap tap)

Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies


Hi everyone!
In this post I am showcasing the new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

These dies are due to be released in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue, but Stampin' Up! chose to release them early!

HOWEVER.... due to overwhelming demand, we exceeded their expectations of sales on this item and Stampin' Up! Australia have SOLD OUT!!!

They were soooo popular that they just couldn't keep up with the demand, so they have ordered another shipment but in the meantime, they are now on Back Order.
This item will not be able to be ordered at all as of the 22nd Nov until the new shipment arrives. So hold on, there are more coming.

When using mine for a project, it was an easy to choice to CASE my
upline, or as I prefer to call her, my mentor,  Kylie Bertucci.

Team leader of the Crazy Crafters and #1 Demonstrator in Australia.

Recently we attended On Stage LIVE in Brisbane and I was lucky enough to attend the Centre Stage dinner where Kylie and her husband Supporting Demo Bruno gifted those in her team who attended the dinner, a gorgeous Kikki K Inspirational book and also a great book on Starting a business. It also came with this amazing card!



WOW right! Goodness me, what is not to love about this card.
I LOVE everything about it...the layout, the design, the color combo.
The colors struck me the most....Basic Black, Whisper White, Smokey Slate and Pool Party.
Such a stunning combo.
The words inside were so touching.
Makes me proud to be a Crazy Crafter.

So here is my version



I wanted to CASE the color combo mainly and change the layout.
I have used the new Stitched Shapes Framelits to accent the circles with the sentiment and the layer behind.

Add an embossing folder, and some Burlap Ribbon and there you have it!

Thank you Kylie and Bruno for everything you do for us.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.

Until next time

#GDP062


Hi everyone!

It's my first time playing along at the Global Design Project.

I'm loving Sketch Challenges and I really liked this weeks over at the GDP.

So I decided to step out of my comfort zone and enter along side so many other talented creators from all over the world.

So for #GDP062, this is the sketch this week

One word.....Simplistic!
I love simplistic, this plays right into my style.
So here is what I made


One of my favourite colour combos at the moment is Night Of Navy and Copper.

Any excuse to get the Copper Foil out!

This card took me no time at all which I love and I think it makes for a cute and quick thank you card when you need one on the go.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
Until next time

As always, we get to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the guest.

I chose this project of Amys to CASE


I LOVE this time of the year and with so many christmas cards to make I like to KISS
(Keep It Simple Stupid!) lol.
I am also a firm believe that less is more sometimes.

So here is my version of Amys card


I am really drawn to the simplicity of the layout, its not over the top or too busy with way too much going on or to look at.

Even better, it took no time to make.

I dont dabble in colouring much....I think there is definitely an art to it and I don't have it.
However I broke out the markers and gave it a go. At least it's neat!

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
A list of supplies used features below.
Be sure to hop all the way through and check out the other amazing creations.
A big thank you to Amy for hopping with us crazies.

Until next time
