I have to say that I am really enjoying being a part of the Caseing the Catty design team. It’s made me look closely at the catalogue and really use it as a great resource for workshops and classes.
This week’s challenge is from the Artistic Expression section of the catalogue. There are so many awesome projects to choose from! You may know (if you follow my blog) that I really like using Blendabilities. So as soon as I saw the box on page 171 of the AU/NZ catalogue, I knew what I was making this week!!
However…. I didn’t have any boxes 😦 But wait, I just got the Gift Box Punch board from the Holiday Catalogue!! You can create lots of different sized boxes using this fabulous board!! And so quick and easy!!
I used Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for the base and then made a whisper white strip as a belly band. I stamped it with the sequin stamp from the Hello Darling stamp set (sequin stamp, squeal!!) in Gold ink and then added the flower which is also from the same stamp set.
I used nearly all of my Blendies colouring in the flowers!! I then added the luxurious Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta ribbon from the Holiday Catalogue and of course, there needs to be real sequins as well! I used the For you stamp from the Hello There hostess and punched it out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch.
So make sure you join in with the Challenge at http://www.caseingthecatty.blogspot.com.au
You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations. It doesn’t even have to be about scrapbooking, journaling or Project Life. For example, you can use a sketch idea for a card or 3D item.
* Create a new project for the current challenge (no back linking)
