What an EPIC adventure we have been on - we are so glad that so many of you have been following our travels along with us and feel like you are coming with us. That is exactly what we were hoping that you would feel.

Here are the last few days of our trip - we were hoping we could upload the videos a little faster but with many people wanting to use the ships Wi-Fi, let's say it wasn't too reliable. lol. We have one day left here in Rome and we are doing a pasta making course tonight! Yay! We are very excited about it. It is a gift from my Mum and so even more special because I will be thinking of her tonight.

We appreciate all your beautiful comments and for your support.

You've Got This | Inaugural Blog Hop with the Gentleman Crafters

Hi There and thanks so much for stopping by today. Its Bruno here and we have something exciting to share with you. I am part of a new design team called the Gentleman Crafters Design Team (TGCDT) and all of the members are from around the world and are ..... guys! 

I have a project to share with you using what may seem like a strange stamp set for this new design team, but I have used it in a different way. Its the 'Heres to Strong Women' stamp set. 

The original stamp says 'You've Got This Girl' but when inking up (with versamark), I masked the 'girl' portion and white embossed the rest on Vellum.

I used a soft suede card base with an intermediate layer of Night of Navy and then a piece of DSP from the Pressed Petals Set. I embellishied with some denim ribbon and some Night of Navy Dots from the Happiness Blooms set.

This is a simple card (well, simple to me anyway) and this sentiment is so approriate for so many occasions. I hope you liked it.

Please make sure you hop all the way around to all of the projects from the design team members.

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop July 2019

Thank you for joining us for our blog hop for July 2019.  We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that want to learn more to progress in our business. Blogging helps us to learn and connect with people, inspiring creativity. Please let us know if you enjoy our work! We love hearing from our readers.

Here is the project that I have made for our hop today. I decided to show some gorgeous cards using the brand new Beautiful Friendship stamp set. Something that I like to do every incentive trip is something special for my team members that earn the trip. I am SO PROUD of what they have accomplished and I think doing a special gift and hand made cards shows my support to them. It also is lots of fun as they are just not expecting it and another way to spoil them.

I know that they will never want to miss another incentive trip again... :)

I took the colours from the mimco bags and decided that the closest match was these. I never would have put these five colours together. I love getting inspiration from fashion as it pushes me outside my comfort zone and I also know that it is the very latest, on trend colours. Feel free to pin this combo for other projects you may want to make.

Doesn't it look so amazing together like this? The Mimco circle is what inspired the POP of Merry Merlot.

I am so excited to have two team members that have earned the Greek Isles Cruise this time. Michelle Mills and Jessie Holton. So proud of them both!

Thank you so much for coming by today. Remember that you have a full blog hop with AMAZING ideas that you can enjoy. You are currently at my blog - Kylie Bertucci. So have a look at the list below to see who is next after me in the list and don't miss one blog!

Greek Isles Stampin' Up!® Incentive Trip 2019 | ROME Part 4

Had a great day today filled with food and friends! The attempt was to eat our way through Rome... Breakfast - a Nutella Doughnut - that was like eating a pillow of deliciousness!! 

We took it easy and found an awesome restaurant online in Trastevere. It was around a half an hour walk from our place. We took our time at lunch and had a leisurely two hour lunch. Did you see my new ring too? I am in LOVE with it! We got Jessie a gift today too... We hope she likes it.
Here is my new Roman ring... Bruno helped me pick it and I think he chose really well.

We caught up with our beautiful friends Jessica and David Brigden - they booked the Bible tour for us and it went from 2:30pm to 7pm!! WHHHATTTT - there was so much fantastic information about the Roman ruins that relates to Bible history. Incredible what you can learn from the past. The most interesting part for me was the Arch of Titus showing the spoils that were taken from Jerusalem when it was destroyed in 70CE. Also finding out more about Romulus and Remus and how much it relates to accounts in the Bible. So interesting - glad I took notes as I would have missed so much otherwise.

Here is the daily tour summary video we hope you feel like you are along with us for a day of discovery and food!! Oh boy that food was delicious.

We are boarding the Jewel of the Seas today (Sunday) which start the next phase of the trip! We are so excited to see everyone and catch up. Not sure how the internet will be on the ship - hopefully we can get our videos uploaded, if not we will have some pictures as highlights instead and will post the videos when we get good wi-fi. Thanks for all your wonderful comments - we are loving having you along with us for the trip!
