We’ve finally had a couple of cooler days over the weekend, which has been lovely!!
This week we are casing the Occasion Kits section, pages 15-17, of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.
There are only a few projects to choose from which made it a bit easier to pick one!!
I cased one of the cards from the Perennial Birthday Project Kit. This is a gorgeous kit and the box is to die for!! I may have bought it just for the box!! I am casing the pink card on page 16.
I used the card bases from the free Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes that you can earn during Sale-a-bration. You get 16 cards and envelopes in the pack with 4 cards of each of the 4 colours. In keeping with the tutti frutti theme, I used the Lots of Labels framelits and cut out the largest frame in the Tutti Frutti DSP stack.
I then cut out a banner in co-ordinating card stock and used my favourite punch, the Triple banner punch.
I used the Bunch of Banner framelits to cut out another banner and stamped it with the birthday sentiment from the Fruit Basket stamp set.
These cards were so easy to put together! Don’t you love the Tutti Frutti DSP!
Next up is Rachel, I can’t wait to see what she has created.
Make sure you join in with the challenge at our Facebook group.
Stampin’ Up! Product List
I love making cards which have a bit of a twist. I especially love a good easel card!! I love the “wow” factor when you show someone and they realise that it’s not just a flat card but something a bit unusual.
At stamp club this month, I wanted to showcase one of the new stamp sets in the Occasional Catalogue, So Very Grateful. I think this is such a cute set and I love being able to colour the flowers.
I found a cute card on Pinterest, by Julie Davison and she has a great video on how to make this card. Check it out here.
I really like the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. I think these are a great option for card making.
So here is my card.
I also did a second one using a different DSP.

Where is the year going!!! It seems to be flying past already!!
We had stamp club on the weekend and I wanted to share a project using the gorgeous Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. I really love this DSP and wanted to show how it could be used in a non-christmassy way. I had not used all the shimmery paper in the pack (shock, horror, I know!!), so I decided to use that one as the background.
I was inspired by Dani Dziama, here. I loved her card, especially with the doily.
I gave the girls a sneaky peak at a new product being featured in the Sale-a-bration catalogue, the mini banner punch!! Is that not the cutest punch you’ve ever seen!! I am hopeless at making the ends of banners even so this is perfect for me.
Here’s a close up of the banner.

It’s only 75 days until Christmas!! Does the thought of that make you panic!! I have to look for a new tree this year as my kitty cats had fun with the old one and we had to throw it away after Christmas last year. It’s so hard to find just the right tree!!
In the spirit of Christmas decorations, Stampin’ Up! have a great kit in the latest Seasonal catalogue for making gorgeous banners. We have the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit which includes 18 blank canvas paper pennants (6 each of 3 designs), 2.7m of jute twine, alphabet and image stencils and a Stampin’ Spritzer for only $34.95.
Then there is the Chistmas Banner Simply Created Accessory kit which includes gorgeous bits and bobs for you to decorate your banner. This kit is $16.95.
I had a day off on Tuesday so I whipped out my hot glue gun and got crafting. I found that I got a better result using a sponge dauber rather than spritzing. It was also less messy!! You should have seen my hands!!
I used just about everything in the accessory kit. I especially love the Bermuda Bay/Pool Party ribbon!!
Here’s a couple of close up’s of the detail.
Ink: Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Build a Banner Simply Created Kit, Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit, sponge dauber
If you simply must make one of these, you can purchase it at my online store, here or contact me at email@example.com.
I’ve noticed whilst surfing Pinterest that Banners are becoming quite popular. I have loved them all and wanted to make one.
As you may have noticed, I love my Big Shot!! I’ve used so many dies!! Firstly, I started with Scallop Square Clear Bigz die. I love the fact that you can cut 6 pieces of cardstock in one go! I then used the Rosette XL Bigz die to cut out strips from the lovely new Tea for Two Designer Series Paper to make the rosettes. I used two strips per square. These are so easy to make using my trusty hot glue gun.
I then used the 2 3/8″ Scallop circle punch in So Saffron and then layered with the Circle 2# Original die cut from more of the Tea for Two DSP. I used the Naturals White card stock as the base circle for the letters.
This is the first time that I’ve used my new Typeset Alphabet Bigz die. Using the multipurpose adhesive sheets makes it so easy to attach the letters. I just had to think about which way the letters needed to be cut so that they weren’t backwards!!
I added the Tea Time Trinkets which are very cute!
I hope you like it! I’ve hung it in my craft room above the window that I sit in front of.
