It’s time for a new Catalogue!!

Can you believe that Christmas is over and we are already into 2018!

The only thing that makes it a little bit easier is the 2018 Occasions Catalogue and the fact that Sale-a-bration has started!!  YAY!!!

My team recently held an online catalogue party which was great fun!  My upline sent out a few card kits prior to the event, and we had to create something to share on the night.

I got sent pieces of Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP and some of the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.  I already had the Cake Soiree stamp set and the matching Sweet Cake framelits (thank you, preorder!!).

I managed to create 3 cards out of the pieces and here they are!


For this first card, the coloured flower image and the silver vellum flowers come from the embellishment kit.  Aren’t they lovely!


On this second card, I have used the Sweet Cake framelits and one of the tag dies.  The photo doesn’t show how lovely and shiny the DSP is.  It has gorgeous silver foil accents.


For my final card, I wanted to showcase the gorgeous vellum flowers which are part of the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit.  I created my own background using the stamps from the Cake Soiree set.  The best way to showcase the flowers was to add a white background underneath so I added a banner for the sentiment.

If you are new to Sale-a-bration, let me explain it for you.  From 3 January to 31 March, for every $90 you spend, you get to choose a product from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  There are two exciting Level 2 products which you can purchase when you order over $180!!

Perfect Cards for the man in your life

Welcome to 2018!  I hope you had a lovely Christmas and a fun New Years.   It’s been so hot in Queensland for the last few weeks, I spent a fun day in the air conditioning just pottering around.  It’s been too hot to craft!!

My fabulous team has been doing a swap with the goodies we have been able to pre-order from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. (One of the perks of being a demonstrator!!)

There are so many fabulous new products in this catalogue and it was hard to choose what to make!

I decided to use the Truly Tailored stamp set and the matching True Gentleman DSP.  We also have a new Tailored Tag Punch which is great!


I’ve used Night of Navy cardstock as the base and then Tranquil Tide cardstock which has been embossed with the Hexagons embossing folder.

I punched out using the Tailored Tag Punch and the True Gentleman DSP.  I just love this DSP!  I stamped the sentiment from Truly Tailored stamp set in Night of Navy.

And check out the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon!!  Love it!!!

If you would like a copy of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, just email me at and I’ll post one out to you straight away.

Don’t forget the 2017 Holiday Catalogue finishes on 2 January, so make sure you pick up those last bits and pieces today!

CTC159 – Case any project from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue


Can you believe that this is our last hop and challenge for the year!!  A big thank you for hopping with us over the year.  We really appreciate your comments and for joining in with our challenges.

For our last challenge, we are casing any project from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.


There are so many lovely projects in this catalogue that it was hard to choose.  But one of my favourite sets has been the Christmas Quilt bundle.  I’m really sad that it is not carrying over.

I decided to case the Red peace card in the centre of the page 4.


The Quilted Christmas DSP is so lovely, I’ve really struggled to cut it!  But I did manage a few cuts for these cards!!  I decided to make 2, one more of a direct case with a few changes, then the other with more.



I hope you are inspired to do some “quilting” with this bundle!!  But don’t miss out as it will be gone soon!!!  Just click on the link to go to my online store, here.

Next up is my lovely friend, Rose.  I can’t wait to see what gorgeousness she has created this week.


Make sure you share your creations from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue on our Facebook group.


Merry Christmas and Happy Stamping!!

CTC158 – It’s my age page!


I hope you are going well with your Christmas shopping.  I finished mine this week!  Woo hoo!! Well, I might get my husband a couple of other little things, but I’ve got all the main shopping done.

We are having a fun challenge this week at Caseing the Catty.  Our challenge is to case a project from the page that is your age (or the age you would like to be!).


So I’m casing a project from page 43 of the 2017 Holiday catalogue.  I went with the card on the top left corner.


I liked the idea of stamping on the background with a piece of vellum over the top.  I used the Christmas Happiness stamp set and stamped the branch in Wild Wasabi.  I then cut out a piece of vellum and embossed the sentiment from Festive Phrases in gold embossing powder.

I added a square of whisper white behind the sentiment so that you could see it clearly.  I then added a Green sprig and tied it with gold ribbon.  It’s a fairly simple card but I’m happy with how it came out!


Next up is the amazing Peta!

We only have one more week of Casing the Catty to go for this year!  We will be having a short break but will be back early in January.

Happy Stamping!

CTC157 – Case a Colour Combo


Can you believe that in only 3 weeks, we will be preparing for the best day of the year!!  Can’t wait!!  (Although I have so much to do between now and then!!)

This week, we are casing a colour combo from either the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue or the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.


I’m still needing Christmas cards, so I turned to the 2017 Holiday catalogue.  I decided to go with a non-traditional combination which I found on page 35.


Isn’t silver and Pool Party amazing!

I don’t usually start with the end in mind (well, except for the fact that it will be a card! lol!) and today was no exception!  I decided to use the embossing paste and coloured it with a few drops of Pool Party ink.  I also added in a bit of dazzling diamonds glitter.   I then remembered that I got some Silver embossing paste in my pre-order of the 2018 Occasions catalogue, so I decided to give it a go as well.  As I’m needing a few more cards, I made two of each base.

The silver is a slightly different texture to the regular embossing paste and it took a bit longer to dry.

Whilst I was waiting for the bases to dry, I had a look through my Christmas framelits.  I decided to go with the retiring Quilt Builder framelits.  I haven’t actually used the framelit which embossing quilting lines so I decided to make that my feature.  And it looks amazing on silver foil!! The flower is also from the same set of framelits.

To create the banner at the bottom, I used the dotty thinlit from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits and added a strip of white cardstock down the middle, which I stamped with the sentiment from the Merry Patterns stamp set.



Here’s all the cards that I made.


Next up is the talented Peta.

CTC156 – Case any project from the Annual Catalogue and give a Christmas Twist


Can you believe that it’s four weeks tomorrow to Christmas!!  I’ve started to realise that I don’t have enough Christmas cards!!  Time to get making!!

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing a project from the Annual Catalogue and giving it a Christmas twist.


I have decided to case a card on page 27 which uses the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  I think I’ve cased this card before but it’s a great layout so I’m using it again!


I decided to use the Be Merry DSP which is from the Annual Catalogue as the background rather than a large stamp.  My go-to Christmas colours are Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler so I really love this DSP.

I just purchased the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder.  I don’t know why it’s taken me so long!  It’s fab!  I created a banner using the Banner Triple punch.  I used the DSP  for the second banner.

You know my favourite framelits would have to be the Stitched Shape Framelits.  I struggle to not use them on every project!  I haven’t used the ovals very much but I felt this sentiment looked nice on the oval.  Speaking of sentiment, this great sized sentiment is from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.

I then added a bow using the Cherry Cobbler double stitched ribbon.


Make sure you come and join in with this week’s challenge at our Facebook group.

Next up is the amazing Peta.
