I hope you are having a great weekend! I went to the car racing on the Gold Coast with my Dad, Uncle and cousin on Friday and had a fun day!!
This week we are casing a layout on page 52 of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.
I’m not really into Halloween so I decided to make a floral card. But I was inspired by the layers on the gift bag on the right hand corner.
I love all the layers and I started off by looking through my dies. I was inspired by the Wild Roses dies and the matching stamp set, To a Wild Rose. I then flipped through my DSP’s and decided to go with the Magnolia Lane DSP.
I grabbed the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and zig zagged it across my card. I cut the flower banner in Crumb Cake and the sentiment piece in Petal Pink from the dies.
Next up is the amazing Siobhan. I can’t wait to see her creation this week!!
We would love to see your creation, so please share over on at our Facebook group.
Isn’t it great to have a long weekend!! I hope you had a great Australia Day! I did, it’s my b’day!! Although it’s been a hot week/weekend and it’s a bit hard to be inspired when it’s so hot in the craft room.
This week we are casing the Floral Romance section, pages 10-13 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.
I would have liked to have used the Wonderful Romance bundle, but I was silly and only ordered the framelits (must have put in the wrong code!). So I decided to use the Butterfly Beauty thinlits instead. At CTC Crew, we are challenging ourselves to case something other than a layout from the catalogue. So I decided to be inspired by the colours featured in the butterfly card on the lower right on page 13.
So I went with Whisper White, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green. Although on closer inspection, I think it might have been Melon Mambo! Oh well, you get the idea!
I started off with a piece of thick whisper white cardstock and spritzed it all over with water. I then put some Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green ink onto a couple of clear blocks and used my aqua painter to get the ink onto the cardstock. And even though it’s really hot, I still used my heat tool to dry the paper. I then cut out one of the large butterfly framelits and sponged the back with tombow glue and attached to a piece of whisper white.
I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Granny Apple Green and cut out using the Wonderful Floral framelits. I added some Poppy Parade Textured Weave Ribbon behind the sentiment and attached it using some dimensionals.
We have had a lovely week of rain and it’s currently raining at the moment. It’s perfect for crafting!!
This week, we are casing the front and back covers of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. Yes even the covers of the catty are inspiring!!
I decided to case the little square card on the back cover.
I’ve gone with a standard sized card and not a square. I’ve kept similar to the original and used the Subtle embossing folder for the background. I cut out a square of whisper white cardstock and used the new Corrugated embossing folder. I then gently ran the crumb cake ink pad over the top. I created a square outline using the Suite Seasons washi tape.
I decided to create a wreath using the Sprig punch. I made a circle frame using the circle framelits to make sure that the sprigs stayed in a circle shape, otherwise it would be a wonky wreath!!
I was going to add a bow or ribbon but I decided to use the Merry Christmas thinlits in Merry Merlot from the Joyous Noel glimmer paper. I then randomly painted some of the sprigs with Wink of Stella.
I’m really happy with how the wreath turned out! It’s always nice when your card ends up like you imagined!!
Next up is the lovely Peta.
Make sure you share your creation with us over on at our facebook group.
In case you were wondering, it’s 11 days until my trip to Orlando!!! It’s coming up quickly!!
I had my stamp class yesterday and it’s always nice to catch up with everyone. It’s just lovely to get together with others who love the same thing as you do and craft together. I hope you have a regular group that you can do that with.
I always love to get together with my online friends as well every Sunday night and share our crafting projects with you. This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing the Santa’s Workshop section, pages 18-27 of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.
Aren’t all those little Santa’s cute! I am doing a different card today though, and have cased the card on page 23 using the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle.
My card is fairly similar to the original but I’ve used the Dashing Along DSP that you can earn for free this month with a workshop of over $400 in sales.
I added gold foil along the sides of the DSP. I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set in Cherry Cobbler and then cut it out using the largest Oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits. I then cut out a few of the flowers and holly in different colours from the Detailed Poinsettia thinlits. I coloured the holly using Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.
Next up is the lovely Monique.
Make sure you share your project with us over on at our Facebook Group.
And if you are interested, it’s only 46 days until I depart for Orlando!! OMG, I’m so excited!!!!!!!!!
Well I’ve had an exciting week visiting China with my sister. We had a great time visiting the Great Wall, the Beijing Zoo, Shaolin Temple and the Yellow River.

So I’ve unpacked, washed and had a great sleep and am ready to jump into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.
I wasn’t going to join in the hop this week as I wasn’t sure I’d be able to have time to create a card. But my new catalogue order arrived whilst I was away and when I opened up the box, I just had to join in!! So many exciting new goodies to play with!!
So this week, we are casing the Tea Room section, pages 13-25 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.
I decided to case the card on page 20 using the Botanical Bliss Bundle. Did you know that you save 10% when you purchase a bundle.
This bundle is just so lovely! I can’t wait to play more with them. I pretty much cased the card as is. I used the gorgeous Share What You Specialty DSP. For the background, I used the new Soft Sea Foam cardstock and stamped the flower from the Botanical Bliss stamp set.
The roses and flowers come from the Botanical Tags thinlits. You can use these dies as a tag or there is an additional die that allows you cut the flower out completely.
I used copper embossing powder on the oval and Tranquil Tide for the sentiment. I used copper foil for the leaves in the background and added a little bit of copper metallic thread.
Next up is my lovely friend, Mel.

Aren’t you just loving the Holiday Catalogue!! If you don’t have one, you NEEEED one!! Let me know if you want one and I’ll post one to you, or you can click on the link at the side.
This week, we are casing the Merry Little Christmas section, pages 10-19, of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
I decided to case the card on page 17 using the Feeling of Christmas stamp set.
I just love the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. It’s hard to decide which side to use as both look fabulous. I pretty much cased the card exactly but I used a gold metallic doily instead. I have to confess that I had to stamp the wreath about 6 times!!! I couldn’t believe it! I either stuffed up the distressed circle or the flower wreath.
I wanted to make a second version using the Wood Textures DSP stack. I also just coloured the wreath using my aqua painter and Pear Pizzazz ink. And I added a white doily this time.
Which one do you prefer? I think I like the DSP version.
Make sure you join in with us at our Facebook group!
Can you believe that we are in September and my holiday is just around the corner!! Aren’t you just loving the 2016 Holiday catalogue? There are so many gorgeous projects to case!! Of course, this week is no exception.
We are casing the Big Shot section between pages 8-11. There are lots of amazing stamp sets in this section and it was hard to decide which one to use.
I love the Banners for Christmas stamp set and the Bunch of Banners framelits so I was excited to case this card on page 10.
I did pretty much the same as the catalogue but I did gold foil instead of gold glimmer paper as I’m going to use this card for my stamp club project and I didn’t have enough glimmer paper for everyone. I also used the red and green glitter embossing powder as it is so pretty and sparkly.
I think I like the red best but both look pretty. Let me know which one you like!!
Next on the hop is the lovely Rachel.
