CTC60 – Caseing the Catty and Miss Jess

CTC Holiday header-001

Well, here you are back at me again!! It’s our last week at Caseing the Catty for the year and we are caseing each other this week!! I’m caseing my talented friend, and new Artisan Design Team member, Jessica at The Paper Caper.

Jess has so many lovely projects that she has done during her time at CTC that it was a bit hard to choose. I decided to case a box that she had made showcasing the hostess set, A Whole Lot of Lovely. You can see her original post here.

Isn’t it pretty? I decided to use the English Garden DSP for the background of the box. Isn’t it lovely? I haven’t used it a lot but I do love it. (Note to self to use more often). It’s so easy to create a box using the gift box punch board. A few scores and quick folds and your project is almost done.

I added some striped gold vellum like Jess, then added a strip of Vanilla ribbon and some blushing bride sequins. I managed to find some filter sheets and created my flower using the Floral Frames Collection framelits. I even spritzed them with some blushing bride ink and isocol and helped the drying process along with my heat gun. To make the flower fit on the box, I scrunched the middle and quickly added some dimensionals to the back of the circle and stuck them together.

And voila, a box is made!!

I hope you have enjoyed my box this week. Next on the hop is my lovely friend, Jessica who is caseing Tricia this week.

Mojo Monday Circles

Seeing as I have time to play in my craft room this week, I decided to try out a few challenges. You may have noticed that I like to try the Mojo Monday sketches. I thought this week’s sketch was interesting and decided to give it a go.

Here is the Sketch. And here is the link to the challenge.


I’ve recently purchased the Pretty Petals DSP stack and it’s so pretty. I decided to base my colours around this stack, so I went with a base of Mint Macaron and then a layer of Calypso Coral before the DSP. I cut out a silver glimmer paper circle using two circle framelits. Have I ever mentioned that I love bling? No? Well I love it!!! lol.

I think this hostess set, A Whole Lot of Lovely, is my favourite ever. And this Thank You stamp is just lovely. I used my Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral markers to ink it up. To create the banner, I just used the reverse side of the DSP. Don’t you just love that!!

Here’s my card.
