A Belated Colour Challenge

Amy Fraser

You may have heard of the Global Design Team and the weekly challenges they hold over on their website. If you haven't, check it out as its a great place for inspiration. To get myself back into the swing of things I thought I would join in with challenge 81. I loved the colour challenge and inspiration hit me straight away. I created the project on the first day of the challenge, unheard of for me. But then I never got the chance to upload it for the challenge.

I really loved the card and the colour combination is one of my favourites so I thought I would show it to you anyway!

Take a look at what other people created here and why not try joining in with the future challenges yourself? I'm hoping to get involved in more of the GDP challenges now that I know how fun they are!

I really loved this stamp set - Big on Birthdays - in the spring summer catalogue although maybe you have passed it by, due to one particular stamp in the set? More on that another day! I am so pleased it is staying around for the next year of the Stampin' Up! catalogue. Expect to see more of this stamp set in the future!

I'm also looking forward to playing with all the new products available in the new Stampin' Up! catalogue which launches Thursday!! If you don't already have a catalogue get in touch and I will get you one in the post this week!

A change is as good as a rest... but sometimes you need both!

Amy Fraser

I accidentally took a few months off....

It's been a very long time since I last posted on my blog and my social media has been quite empty as you may have noticed. But while this "vacation" wasn't planned, it has been so good for me and feels like clicking a refresh button on things!

Last Autumn, after a few rubbish months career wise, I decided to make some major changes in my life. As a person who struggles with change this was not what you would call easy but I knew that it was what I wanted and so I persevered. Suddenly just before christmas lots of things happened all at once, and while I had been working towards them it was all still a surprise when it arrived!

So, at the start of 2017 I left my job in Kent, took a lovely few weeks holiday, came home to my lovely Sevenoaks flat and packed up all my belongings - well the movers did! Then I along with a (un)surprisingly large moving lorry journeyed to Cambridge. I've since started a brand new job in the centre of Cambridge, made lots of new friends, caught up with old ones and unpacked all the moving boxes (almost).

My new home and job has changed the way I live my life in a lot of ways. I'm enjoying a more active lifestyle, being much more sociable, trying new things and rediscovering some old hobbies! My new home also comes with the benefit of a craft room/office which has made me very happy. I took the opportunity while going through the move to reassess crafting and why I enjoyed it in the first place! While I haven't been sharing my crafting I have actually been really productive and rediscovering my love of crafting for me and those I love!

So while I am not promising to be reliably back online, I mean when have I ever been?  I am looking forward to doing what I love and sharing what I do!
