I can’t believe that we are in June and almost halfway through the year!! I am so excited to be share the Christmas section with you this week with Caseing the Catty. I just love the new This Christmas Specialty DSP, and did you know that you get 24 sheets of paper in this pack! That’s four of each design instead of the usual two.
So this week, I decided to case the gift bag at the back on page 26 of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. I had one problem though, as I didn’t have a wreath to use. But no worries!! I got out my new Swirly Scribbles thinlits and used the largest scribble to create the look of a wreath. I sponged it a little to give it a bit of depth. I used the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set to stamp the banner, using my ever trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to help align it. And of course, my favourite triple banner punch to do the ends. I hand cut the flowers out of the dsp and added a bit of Stella for some sparkle. You can’t have a Christmas card without a bit of bling!!
So I hope you are inspired our hop today to get started early with your Christmas cards. Next on the hop is the lovely Elizabeth. I can’t wait to see what she has created!!
Don’t forget that we are looking for new Crew members. If you would like to join us, head over to our blog and link up your project. We will be announcing the new members in July.

This week sees the start of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue!! How exciting!! And we are already starting on our journey through the new catalogue here at CTC and are starting with the Birthday section between pages 10-25.
As I flicked through this section trying to decide which card to case, I had trouble choosing as there are so many great projects. I haven’t received my new catalogue order yet (but it’s on it’s way!!) so I went with a set that carried over. Although apparently this set is still new to me as I haven’t actually inked it up yet!
I was inspired by the cake card on page 22 of the catalogue.
I don’t have many male cards in my stash so I decided to change the colours to Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim. I also used Peekaboo Peach for my third cake. To add the ribbon, I cut a small slit down the seam of the card and tucked the ribbon through it. I then used a bit of tape on the inside of the card to hold it down.
The Endless Birthday wishes stamp set has so many great sentiments to choose from and I love how you can mix and match them.
Next on the Hop is the lovely Judy, so make sure you check out her gorgeous project.
