Well it is time for a little update about out very first Gilli Design Team call. We have received many beautiful projects. We are blown away by the creativity and lovely details! The deadline for submission was supposed to be tomorrow.  Yeap, I said “was”.  We will be extending the deadline submission for a few days.
Some of you might know already that my very best friend in this whole world and partner had a very serious and life threatening medical emergency this past week (We thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, they are so comforting. THANK YOU!).  I cannot even try to explain how important Rami is to me….and Gilli. Rami spent a few days in the hospital and now has been recovering at home…and he needs to stay away from work for a few more days….since Rami is an essential gear to me and Gilli…We decided to extend the Design team call.

Gilli Boho :: A Stroll in Fall colors


Gilli Hi icon



ello creative ladies and gent! I just cannot get over all the colors Fall brings. Everywhere I look…”hum, how can I achieve that deep red or that sweet pale yet with orange sprinkles?”.  I am glad I can say this here…other people…I mean that kind that “doesn’t get it” lol…our craziness passion about stamps, papers and markers (all coloring tools actually) lol. That “kind" would think I am nuts…you… in other hand…understand me :). That is okay…one  day they will go under the spell…lol

Gilli_Fall_JustaHello Well Gilli loves to play with colors as much as I do, and it is true that she dress for each occasion : ) very comfortably! Gilli Boho is all fall”ishious” in her earthy tones look :). I will be honest, I so want a hat like hers LOL….So here she come just to say a hello…

One of the things I did to create the fall look was to add a few petals to the little flowers on the nestability matching stamp from Stamping Scrapping Design stamps. I cannot get over what you can do with these..I think it gives that little extra charm on the already Gilli_Fall_JustaHello_det cute nestabilities. Check out the nice sentiment and the little added touch with the sampling flower stamp that comes with it. Cool..indeed!

I hope you are strolling and enjoying all this inspiration that nature is offering you…Gilli is off to get busy and bring you more inspiration soon! I will get a cup of coffee….: )

See you all soon…much love to’yall.

Coffee…You see just like me seems that Gilli also needs coffee in her veins. I guess we are both caffeine vampires…lol. We munch on copic R18 sometimes….

My little Gilli waitress went under a spell after the midnight hour…and became this creeping cute “blood”rista..lol serving you with the finest “blood”latte or “Blood”puccinos lol. A bloody gift certificate card holder project from a place with this that  are a must to keep me awaaaaake…

Today I am bringing you a project that honestly makes me think of that movie with Christopher Reeves….”Somewhere in time”… Gilli Victorian (and a marvelous Stamping scrapping Design Stamp :: nestability compatible design stamps) brings all that romance that we see on Victorian times…Not that I think that wearing tight corset is idea of romance LOL. But there is something about those days that seems so naive…and delicate…The laces the, patterns…the costumes…pearls…awww…

A sweet thank you note…that can be used as a decor in your best friend craft room…or a little gift that will be with your friend thru the times…just like your love!

Gilli Hi icon

ello sweet people! Are you all getting ready for this last official Summer weekend? Some of our friends are saying actually good bye to winter and saying hello to a new season full of colors! Well Fall is just an explosion of tones…I never can get enough of investigating the leaves tones dangling from the trees…oranges, yellows, creams, brownish greens…what a delight! Talking about a new season….
Gilli leopard print Here comes Gilli Burlesque in her fashionable, very “in” on her animal print corset! Chic ha? Well obviously not for everyone LOL…but Gilli is a very playful girl and she loves to be all dressed up to that special occasion! I wanted to share with you all , the idea that you can transform Gilli images to your hearts desire, and fit to the occasion you are crafting for! It all depends on your imagination! Wild thing ;). This Gilli card could be perfect for a modern bridal shower party! I bet the bride would be “Oh la la!” ..or maybe you would rather give this Gilli to that special one…or perhaps you can do like I did together with a partner in crime…sending this as an inside joke….curious now?! LOL
see you next time and lots of Gilli love to you…

ello ! How is everybody?! We have been busy around here trying to bring ideas to share! We will try to make lots and lots of Gilli projects to hopefully plant a little seed in your creativity! Please join our Flick and share your idea!

Talking about seeds…I honestly can feel Fall breeze around the corner. I don’t know why, but if you actually close your eyes and just let it be, you can feel the change in the air. Fall is coming, so it is now time to collect the seeds of your hard work and save them for the next spring/Summer!


Seed_box_inside Here I bring you a nice little gift idea for a Gardner friend or make it for yourself! I love planting, the joy of seeing that wonderful fresh green ( I wonder of copic # is that lol) come to life, after all the beautiful winter whites…it is just magic. So if you wish to have that little colorful happiness  in your yard or  flower pot, the time to plan is right now! All you need is some nice ribbon, die cuts, a little sparkle from glitter, copic markers, a cute box and your Gilli florist.


As you can see inside a lovely package of hope…packs of colors tied in bows that once planted will sprout as soon as snow melts away! The smells, the texture and the inspiration kept safely guarded by your Gilli florist thru the winter….Come on let’s make magic happen…right now!
