CTC60 – Caseing a Design Team Member

CTC Holiday header-001

It’s our last project for 2015!! Can you believe that we are nearly ready to start a new year? I can’t!!

Our task this week is to Case another CTC Design Team Member. I was lucky to get my amazing friend, Emma at Vintage Graffiti. She is so talented and does the most beautiful work!!

It was hard to decide which project to CASE!! I ended up going with her Project Life case, which you can read about here.

Isn’t that a cute card? I didn’t want to use a Project Life card (as I might NEEED it for scrapping!) so I had a look at my stamp sets for a large quote. I found the Friendly Wishes stamp set had just the sentiment I needed to share my sentiments about my lovely friend!

Now unlike Emma, my sewing machine isn’t sitting on my desk but is miles away at the bottom of my craft cupboard (Well, not miles but maybe 1 metre away) but I can’t be bothered to get it out to sew on a card. That is pushing the limits of friendship way too much. So I decided to create a shaker card instead.

I stayed with a similar colour theme, although I used Bermuda Bay as my base, and the black polka dots is from the Neutrals DSP stack.

I stamped the sentiment with White Staz on and cut out the squares using my square framelits. I cut out the inside of the Bermuda Bay Square and added a window sheet behind it. I then used the edges of a pack of dimensionals around the edge of the square on the back to create the space to add the sequins in. I added a few pinches of sequins and then a few more to make sure I had enough.

At the recent Onstage Local Stampin’ Up! event held in Melbourne, I was lucky enough to be able to have a girls’ weekend with my stamping besties, Emma and Jess. We had such a fun time catching up and also finding out about the new Occasions catalogue! Love you girls!!

CTC 18 – Party time!!!

It’s time to case the Birthday section of the Occasions catalogue at Case-ing the Catty this week.

I really like the Balloon Bash stamp set although I must confess that this is the first time I’ve used it!!

I was inspired by the project on the right hand corner of page 12 of the AU/NZ catalogue.


I wasn’t that keen to make a pompom out of baker’s twine today but I do like the idea. I’ll keep it in mind for another day!

I used the same DSP but I selected the Birthday Bash Specialty DSP as it has a bit of gold flecks on it. And we always need a bit of bling, don’t we!!

I also added a bit more bling with the Bermuda Bay sequins as part of the hangy bit. (that’s a technical term,you know!)

I hope you can join in with us this week.
