CTC129 – Favourite Annual Catty

We are almost at the end of another amazing catalogue but we still have a few favourites left to share!!

This week, we are sharing some of our favourite projects from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue.

One of my very favourites is Foxy Friends!!  I just think it’s such a cute set and I’m so glad it is carrying on for another year!  I have done a combination of two projects on page 56.

I’ve cased the background on the gift bag in the centre, then cased the card underneath it.  I did turn the reindeer into a cat as I’m a kitty lover!!   As I was testing out which colours would work best for the cat, I accidently created the layout I finished up with!  And then the Pretty Kitty stamp set had the perfect sentiment.  Isn’t it cute!!

I just love using the catalogue for inspiration!  If you are inspired by our projects this week, make sure you head over to our Facebook group and share your project.  We’d love to see what inspires you!

I can’t wait to see what Julia has created this week!

Happy Stamping

I decided to use a sketch to help me along, so I went to my favourite sketch site, Mojo Monday.  I liked their current sketch, 482,  so decided to use that one.

I love the Pretty Kitty stamp set and I thought the kitties would be perfect for the squares.  I love all the layering framelits and that the Stitched Shapes framelits match them perfectly.  Without further ado, here’s my card!

I even made an envelope!!  Here’s a close up of the kitties.  I used blender pens to colour them in.

CTC92 – Everyday Occasions

ctc_header

It looks like we may have seen the last of winter in Queensland and starting to head into Spring!!  It’s a gorgeous day today!!

Today we are back casing the Everyday Occasions section of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue on pages 66-91.  This is a huge section and there are so many gorgeous projects to case.

For those who don’t know, I am the mother of two fat kitties, Shadow and Jaster.  We rescued them from foster care, 5 years ago this month and I’ve been a slave every since!!  Don’t they look happy to have their photo taken!!  That’s Shadow at the back and Jaster at the front.   I have discovered that it is very difficult to take a nice photo of a shiny black cat.

So of course, I had to get the Pretty Kitty stamp set featured on page 101 of the catalogue.

I’ve pretty much cased the card exactly except that I changed the kitty stamp and used the White perfect accents instead of rhinestones.  You might notice that I stamped the flowers using a marker and colouring only part of the flowers on the stamp and then drawing in some more grass to extend it along.

So the boys are all set for their card for Father’s Day, now to decide what to make for my Dad!!

So next on the hop is Debbie, I can’t wait to see what she has made!!
