CTC256 – It’s a Christmas Twist

Welcome to a fun week of Caseing the Catty!! I haven’t had a chance to join in with the last couple of challenges as it’s that busy time of year!! Last weekend, I went to Sydney for Onstage and was able to catch up with my team. I was lucky to attend Centrestage with my upline and a couple of my stamping friends.

We are trying a different challenge this week and casing an Annual Catalogue layout and give it a Holiday Twist.

It’s always nice to go back through the Annual Catalogue and look closely at all the gorgeous projects. I didn’t get too far in and went with a layout on page 31.

I like the watercoloured background so I used a piece of shimmery white cardstock and did a wash of Garden Green. Once it was dry, I attached to the Real Red card. I really like the Peaceful Boughs stamp set and the sentiment, which I cut out using the Beautiful Boughs dies.

The Real Red ruched ribbon is lovely and works perfectly behind the sentiment. I cut out a few branches and added Ice glitter to the tips.

Next up is the lovely Judy, who I got to hug last week!!

We would love to see your creation casing an Annual Catalogue project and giving a holiday twist over on at our Facebook group.

CTC250 – Casing a Fall layout

Welcome to a soggy weekend in South East Queensland. It has been so dry here so it’s nice to finally have a wet weekend. And it’s cold!! We were so hot on Monday with 36 degrees and now it’s 15!

We are casing a layout on page 46 from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

I decided to case the layout at the bottom left with the ribbon behind the Stitched Nested labels die.

I decided to use the Night Before Christmas DSP and the note cards. You know how you have friends that you give Christmas cards to who are not really into hand made cards and don’t really appreciate the work that goes into them. Well these are the perfect cards for them!!

So I trimmed the cardstock to fit the notecard, cut out the sentiment piece in Old Olive using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder. This pretty sentiment is from the new Christmas Rose stamp set from the Christmas Time is Here Suite which will be available on 1 November. I then used either the Garden Green double stitched ribbon or the Real Red Curly ribbon behind the sentiment. These were so quick and easy to make, that I made 10 with my helper, Jaster.

I hope you like these quick and easy cards. Don’t forget about those cute note cards!! Next up is the lovely Tina.

We would love to see your creations so please share it over on at our Facebook group.

CTC244 – Case Holiday Cover

Welcome to our first hop of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. The catalogue goes live on Wednesday 4 September 2019.

There are so many gorgeous new products!! I love just about all of them!! Haha, what a surprise. This week, we are casing the cover of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

I decided to case the wreath card on the top row. I went with Tranquil Tide as a base and used the 2019 – 2021 In Color DSP for the checked background. I used Sahara Sand for the square background and the circle. I used the Beautiful Bough dies to create the wreath. The sentiment is from Christmas Gleaming and I’ve stamped it using the new Golden Glitz ink pad. It’s so sparkly!! I’ve always thought we needed a nice, sparkly gold ink pad and now we have one. There is also Silvery Shimmer and Celestial Copper.

I used the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and the retired mini gold sequin trim for a bit more bling.

Here’s a close up of the Golden Glitz ink.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue and you don’t have a regular demonstrator, I would love to send one to you. Let me know and I’ll pop one into the post.

Next up is the lovely Rachel.
