CTC112 -CASEing The Catty

Here is my card that I created for this challenge this week! I cased the card from page 10! (It has now closed)

 Below is how it all works! 

Every Sunday at 7pm (AEST), there will be a new challenge where we are CASEing a section of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogues. 
This week we are casing any project from the Cupcakes and Carousels section, pages 8-13 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. You don’t need to use this particular stamp set, it is ANY project on these pages.  
You can CASE directly or be inspired by a sketch/layout, colour combo or embellishment.
To join in, you need to add your picture to the album. Make sure you tell us which card/project you are casing. If you don’t add to the album, you won’t be eligible for the challenge. The challenge will close at 7pm (AEST) Saturday. 
The picture with the most likes will be the winner!! The CTC Crew will also choose a “Crew Pick”.
The Crew blog hop will start this week with Elizabeth Gross –
Make sure you hop around to be inspired by all the Crew members.

Live Laugh Love

To tell you the truth.. at the start when I seen this stamp set I wasn’t overly keen!

But I fell in love with the sayings..

and I just love that it matches so much of my everyday life!

What was a stamp set you weren’t keen on that you changed your mind on and why?

Happy Australia Day!

It’s been a year since we attended a special Australia Day ceremony.. one of my good friends took the oath to finally become an Australian citizen.. she has lived here nearly all her life .. just not born here! Anyway for a whole year I’ve been planning a present for her.. collecting our bread clips!

In Australia and I hear NZ.. when your Thong (flip flops) break you can normally repair them with a couple of bread clips!

So here I present her with an Aussie Thong First Aid kit! Oh and she loved it!!

Here is my take on how you can earn a Sale-A-Bration product..

  1. #143191 Clear Mount Mediterranean Moments Stamp Set A$35.00
  2. #142744 Cupcake & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack (6×6) A$17.50
  3. #141709 Watercolor Pencils A$27.75
  4. #102845 Blender Pens A$17.00

= A$97.25 plus Shipping 5% A$4.86= A$102.11

Here is my first Project. yes I have added some stuff from my supplies…

Whisper White Cardstock and Solid Baker’s Twine, Early Espresso Cardstock and Ink pad, Bermuda Bay Cardstock, envelope punch board, Sponge Daubers, Decorative label punch, Banner Triple Punch, scalloped tag Topper, and Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp and some Snail, Dimensionals . I also used an app called PicsArt for my photo on the layout!



Next I have made a couple of cards using the same products listed above… I have chosen to not add a
greeting. I can either add something later or just leave it blank for all occasions!
Here I have used the Water colour pencils.. Yes my Early espresso ink did run a little, but I think
it adds some shading to it.. (Creative Licence lol) It is best to use our Basic Black Archival Stampin’ Pad or StazOn Ink (if I could find my ink that has gone for a trip somewhere). Ive used the Stamping Sponge to sponge the sides of the Amazing Cupcake and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack.. I seriously LOVE this paper.. and wish it was in a 12×12 pack! But as you can see above it hasn’t stopped me from using it on a scrapbook layout!


Here I have used the Mediterranean Moments stamp to stamp on my Early Espresso cardstock. I also did this in my above Scrapbook page… its a great stamp to use as a background stamp… with my scrapbook layout I sponged it as well so it looked a little vintage…. or shabby….. Inking the edges add depth to your project and is cheap to do without adding dimensionals.. even though in this card I did pop the tag up with them…  watermarked82017-01-02-0951watermarked92017-01-02-0951
