Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEing the Catty.
To CASE means to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit which is what we do to share our inspiration for the great projects illustrated in our Stampin' Up! catalogues.
With our current catalogues retiring in just 3 weeks, we are CASEing some of our favourites. This week the challenge is to CASE a favourite retiring Stamp Set. There are many stamp sets from my stash that will be retiring at the end of this catalogue, and I've used 2 of them in my project today.
As you might know, I'm on a scrapbooking journey at the moment, so my CASE has been used as a feature on my page.
I've been inspired by the lovely white embossing onto the Wood Textures DSP that is featured in the card at the top of this picture on page 227 showing off the Hostess Stamp Set Pressed Flowers.
You can see (hopefully) my CASE of this card as the journaling feature on the bottom right of my page.
I've continued this theme of white embossing on Early Espresso around the rest of my page too.
These Early Espresso stitched rectangles are actually the left overs from the Scrapbooking page I featured last week on CASEing the Catty!! (no waste here!!!) You can see that page here.
The title for my page comes from another of my favourite retiring stamp sets - Incredible Like You. This was just perfect for a page featuring our children. It is stamped onto one of the die cut shapes from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.
There are some great words in this stamp set that work just perfectly for scrapbooking!!
The background DSP for my pages comes from the Floral Romance DSP which makes the page quite full and busy, but hopefully the neutral tones of the wood textures DSP and the Early Espresso calm down the busyness a bit!! Having 4 photos on a page is guaranteed to make a page full too!! But all the photos were so gorgeous, I just HAD to use them all!!
Up next on our awesome blog hop featuring retiring stamp sets is the lovely Rachel!! You will love her project!!
We would really love to see your CASE of a favourite retiring stamp set too!! Just add your project made this week to our facebook challenge page!!
Until Next Time
