It’s a New Catalogue Day!!

 

sab-free

 

Actually we have two new catalogues today!!  How exciting!!  I just love this time of year as we all get to earn lots of free goodies from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  And who doesn’t love freebies!!

What is Sale-a-bration?  Well for every $90 AUD you spend, you get to choose an item for free from the range in the Sale-a-bration (SAB) catalogue, from today 4th January to 31st March.  There are so many lovely stamp sets and other accessories for you to choose from!  One of my favourites is the Inside the Lines DSP.  It is a black and white print that you can colour in!!  You can use markers or the new watercolour pencils which are so easy to use!!

Check out this video from Stampin’ Up! which shows all the papers and a few samples.

Isn’t it gorgeous!!  If you love this, and would like to earn your own freebie, you can place an order, or host a workshop.  There are lots of great benefits for hosting.  Here are the extra freebies that you can earn.

sab-hostess-benefitsI’d love to host a workshop with you, so let me know when you would like to schedule one!!

CTC70 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

We are starting to near the end of Sale-a-bration 😦 and the end of the opportunity to earn products for free!!!  This week at Caseing the Catty, we are showcasing more of our favourite products!!

I’m sharing a project featuring the What I love stamp set.  You can do three step stamping with this set which looks so pretty.

I’ve also decided to try a sketch challenge with Mojo Monday, so here is the sketch.

 

Mojo438

I haven’t used any embossing folders for ages (I don’t know why, cos I love using them), so I decided to use the Elegant dots folder for my background on Pear Piazzaz.  I stamped my flowers on a large scrap piece of card stock and I stamped the outline image in Rose Red, then the full flower with a stamped off Rose Red.  I didn’t use the third stamp as I felt it didn’t need it.  I then cut out the flowers with a circle framelit. Oh and I also put some Wink of Stella on the flowers!!

I used the Chalk talk framelits and cut out the tag shape.  I then carefully stamped the Thank You in Pear Piazzaz and Rose Red.  Of course, you can’t go past Very Vanilla satin ribbon.  It’s so shiny!!

For my accent flowers, I used the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack and curved them a little bit for some dimension.  And of course, you need a rhinestone in the centre!!

So if you would like to earn this stamp set for free, all you have to do is spend $90 or more in my online store.  Your only problem will be trying to decided what to get!!

Now if you would love an extra special freebie, why not buy the starter kit?  It’s only $169 and you can choose anything you like up to the value of $295.  Yes, you read that correctly!!  $295 worth of product for only $169!!  And received 20% off your purchases during your time as a demonstrator.  You can join today, right here, or contact me if you have any questions.  But this only lasts until 31 March so don’t delay, do it today!!

Don’t forget to join in with our monthly challenge and share your projects showcasing your casing of the catalogues.

CTC68 – Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are back sharing our favourites from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

sab catty

Did you know if you spend $90 on products from either the Annual catalogue or the Occasions catalogue, you can earn any of the products in the Sale-a-bration catalogue for free?  Isn’t that fabulous!!

Did you know that you can get a Project Life card collection for free?  It’s the Memories in the Marking Project Life Specialty card collection and it’s gorgeous!  You get 30 specialty cards that supplement our other Project Life collections.  There are 10 4″ x 6″ cards and 20 3″ x 4″ cards.  And of these cards, there are 15 overlays and 15 emboss resist cards!!!

ctc68---bec-d

Whilst these cards are great for using with Project Life, they are also good for making quick and easy cards.

So for my first card, I used a 4″ x 6″ black and white overlay.  Now remember it’s a bigger size than our usual card size, so keep that in mind when cutting your cardstock.  Ask me how I know!!  lol.

I put a piece of white underneath the overlay and then created my ice creams on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out.  Aren’t the honeycomb embellishments to die for?  They are so cute!  I stamped the sentiment very carefully on the overlay in Staz-on ink and put it aside to dry for a while so it didn’t get smudged.

ctc68---Bec-a

For my next card, I used one of the smaller 3″ x 4″ overlays and I added a piece of white cardstock underneath again.  I then used another SAB stamp set, What I love, for the sentiment.  A little bunch of flowers in the corner and it’s all done!!

 

ctc-68---bec-b

ctc68---bec-ba

For my last card, I used one of the emboss resist 4″ x 6″ pieces.  I carefully coloured each section with a sponge dauber.

I used the SAB Perfect Pairings stamp set for the sentiment and did a little paper piercing around the oval for an extra bit of detail.  A silver bow and again, another quick card.

Don’t forget that you can join in with us and share your projects.  Join in with the linky at the bottom of this post. You might be our winner for this month!

CTC 16 – It’s all about the freebies!!

Don’t we all love to get something for free!! I know I do!!

This week at Case-ing The Catty, we are casing the projects which focus on the fabulous Designer Series papers that you can receive for free by purchasing $90 product from the Annual Catalogue or Occasions Catalogue.

There are 2 packs of Designer Series Papers in the Sale-a-bration catalogue and I think they are both great!! There is the Best Year Ever DSP and the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP. I especially love the Irresistibly Yours DSP as you can colour it using a number of different techniques. As my fellow design team member, Jessica Williams, calls it, it’s “Magic Paper”!!!

So this week, I’ve gone a little out of the box for me (doesn’t happen often!!) and I am casing the banner card on page 5 of the AU/NZ SAB catalogue. I love this card as it is in the catty and I will be casing this soon however I wanted to also try out the Irresistibly Yours DSP as well.

So here is the original from the Catty.

ctc 16 sab

And here is my version.

ctc16

As you can see, I’ve rotated the layout of the card and used a different banner. I also cut the banners from each different DSP and then coloured them using Blendabilities. I found that you needed to colour and then wipe the ink off the paper quickly as it dries fast. I kinda forgot to do a banner in the glitter paper so I added a sparkly ribbon instead. I also used the Best Day Ever Stamp Set for the sentiment, which you can also earn for free.

I hope you like my card. Please leave a comment below.

So make sure you join in with this week’s Challenge here.

You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations. It doesn’t even have to be about scrapbooking, journaling or Project Life. For example, you can use a sketch idea for a card or 3D item.

* Mention CTC Challenges in your blog post and link back to the challenge blog so others can join in on the fun.
* Let us know what project you CASED and make reference to the page of your country’s catalogue where you got your inspiration.

CTC15 – We’re back!!!

I’m so excited to be back sharing our projects at Caseing the Catty!!

And what great new catalogues that we have to share!! If you haven’t received a copy of the new Occasions catalogue or the Sale-a-bration one, please let me know and I’ll send one out to you.

Our first challenge of the year is to be inspired by a stamped project from the SAB Catalogue and use a SAB stamp set.

As you may know, I kinda like to use my blendabilities!! I received the A Happy Thing stamp set featuring a cute bird, during the pre-order period for demos. It’s not a set I would normally choose but I knew it would be good for using my blendies with. Did you know you can also earn blendabilities for free? Just by ordering $90 worth of product, you can choose a set for free!! I might be getting a few more sets before the end of SAB!! hehe

So I was inspired by the cute card on page 18 of the AU/NZ Sale-a-bration catalogue.

ctc 15 sab

I decided to do a normal size card rather than the square, just for something different. I also didn’t do the splats as I didn’t want to make a mess!! I used the Deco Labels framelits as I love this shape and I forget to use it. So I coloured my birdie using the new Bermuda Bay blendies and Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler. I also used one of the brown’s in the skin colour set for the branch.

ctc15a

You may notice the border around the cut out shape. I used the lightest daffodil delight blendie to colour the edge left by the framelit. I think it adds a nice subtle look. Like the sample in the catalogue, I used the Love Life stamp to create the background on the card. To make the banner, I just stamped the image using Baked Brown Sugar ink and cut it out using my trimmer and paper snips. I then put a strip of new Bermuda bay sequins underneath!! These are soooo pretty!! You NEEEEEDDD some!!

I hope you like it!!

Stampin’ Up! products used:

It’s all free!

I’ve used lots of SAB freebies on my cards today!!  Remember for every $90 you spend on fabulous new products, you can choose 1 item from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  I’m not sure if I should confess how many freebies I have received cos then you can work out how much I spent!!!  (eeekk!!) Just don’t tell my husband!!

So on page 25 of the Occasions catalogue, I was excited to see the Chalk Ink pads and chalk board paper.  I’ve been wanting to try this technique for a while.  You can get 3 lovely colours to play with:  Aquamarine, Rose Coral and Yellow Citrus.

So I wanted to try them all out. On my first sample, I have used Aquamarine and Yellow Citrus. They aren’t as bright as I had expected but it still looks lovely.

chalk bday 2

So I had an accident when I when I made the next sample (which I had actually made first). I stamped the top half in Rose Coral and then stamped the sentiment on the bottom half only to discover that I had mounted the clear sticker upside down on the stamp!! NNOOOOO!!!! So I cut off that bit and I think I like this one better!!

chalk bday

On both cards, I have used the Big Day Stamp set, Best Year Ever Designer Series paper from the SAB catty and also the buttons from the Best Year Ever accessory pack.

Let me know what you think!!

Happy SAB Stamping!
