CASEing the Catty Sunday – Occasions

Those of you that are new to Stampin Up and the world of paper crafting may be wondering what on earth “CASEing” is. CASE stands for “copy and share everything”. There’s a fantastic group of Australian and New Zealand demonstrators who set a weekly “CASEing the Catty” challenge, which means taking inspiration from the pages of the catalogue and turning it into something of your own.

This week the inspiration was to be taken from the pages of the Occasions Catalogue (in its last week). I chose to use the gorgeous collection of goodies shown as part of the Cool Treats Suite on p.32.

I took the layouts and used the new Birthday Memories suite to make a collection of three cards and a gift bag (I planned on doing a little box too but that whole needing to care for my children got in the way of my creative downtime).

Of course the best thing about this new suite is how there are dies that cut images straight from the matching paper, like this super cute cake.

And Mr Fox and his banner on the bag.

And my absoutle favourite, this beautiful little girl. Her vintage style pairs perfectly with a little doily peeping through.

The balloons are stamped and watercolored, although again the balloon stamp fits the small ballon of the balloon punch perfectly.

All in all I was rather happy with my little trio of cards 🙂

Update: super pleased and flattered to have been the “crew pick” for the week’s challenge for having “taken a retired suite and transformed it for something new – showing how old catalogues are awesome to CASE too.” Yes, that’s why I keep my old catalogues! Also because after a year of pouring over them so often they kinda feel like old friends, and you can’t throw out your friends!

For this I get this super cute badge to display:

CTC Crew pick

Thus displayed 🙂

I’m looking forward to some time to take the next CTC challenge using the brand new annual catalogue.
