Global Design Project 120 | CASE the Designer

Welcome to the first Global Design Project challenge of 2018 - #GDP120. This week we are CASEing a gorgeous project by one of our very own - our super-talented Canadian friend Krista Frattin. Krista's projects are always so sweet - and this week's project is no exception.

Thank you to all that played along with us last week for the Home for the Holidays theme. Please pop over to check out all of our winners and special mentions from last week - Click Here to see them!

CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit

Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colours, the layout, the theme, the images - whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own.

Here is the project this week that you can CASE:

Global Design Project 119 | Theme Challenge

****THIS CHALLENGE WILL RUN FOR TWO WEEKS***
Due to the holiday season we will be running this challenge through until the 8th January 2018 - hopefully plenty of time to fit in a crafting session! ;)

Welcome to the Global Design Project #GDP119 - the LAST challenge of the year!! This week's theme "Home for the Holidays" represents being home for the holiday season - however 'home' could possibly be wherever you choose to be spending your time right now. As you know, our GDP Designers are from around the globe and some might be spending their time cozy by the fire with a hot chocolate while others could possibly be laying on the beach with an ice-cream! The designers have given you some awesome inspiration this week, and we can't wait to see what you share. 


We have a Guest Designer this week - Narelle Macey. Narelle was unable to play along as a guest for our last color challenge - so please give a warm welcome to Narelle for our challenge this week.
