Introducing.... the Mini Catalogue!! Woohoo CTC#329.

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.  

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! Catalogues. (Catty).

This week, to introduce our new Mini Catalogue, we are CASEING the front cover!!  

I've chosen to CASE the whole front cover with my scrapbook page. I created the inner square by layering some Pool Party onto Basic Gray cardstock, and used the photos instead of the cardstock in the illustration.  

The main feature of the Front of the Catalogue is that gorgeous gift box and tag and I've converted this into the page Title and used the gorgeous Sweet Strawberry stamp set and coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch (mainly because this works with all the red in the photos !! LOL)  The tag was created using the Fancy Tag Topper Punch, Label me Fancy Punch and some NEW Cherry Cobbler ribbon (coming in the Mini Catalogue - swoon!).

The journalling on the page reflects those gorgeous scattering of gold leaves on the front cover.  

Behind the photos are some pieces of the gorgeous Hostess Paper Pattern Party, and there are a bunch of gorgeous gold accents which come from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack.  

Up next is the marvellous Rebecca - who is always full of amazing inspiration!!

Please join in the fun with us!! We love to see your projects!!  Here's the link to our Facebook challenge page.  

You have ONLY 1 more day to grab a bargain!!  Do it!!

Here's all those gorgeous papers on special ONLY until Monday!!

Colour INKspiration #104

Hello and Welcome to another fabulous colour combination from Colour INKspirations!

This is a talented group providing challenges inspired by wonderful images.

And the colours are described using our Stampin' Up! library of awesome colours - this time they are:  Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Basic White.  

I've used the colours to create a display item for my stall at CraftAlive this coming weekend. 

This little card folds down flat but has it's own stand when you need it!!  I've used a new bundle from our upcoming Mini Catalogue - the Merriest Moments Bundle which comprises a lovely stamp set, Dies and a Hybrid Embossing Folder.  

The super sweet Gingham paper comes from our Hostess pack of Pattern Party.  The other embellishment is the lovely Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon, and some Rhinestone Jewels.

Designer Series Paper spotlight for our hop this month

Hello and Welcome to another marvellous blog hop with this great group of talented designers!!  

This month, the theme is to feature our awesome Designer Series Paper - which has been a recurring theme for all my blog posts this month!!  

My card here features the cute Hand Penned paper - and the paper really is the star of the show - there is very little stamping or other embellishment.  

The Night of Navy greeting comes from the coordinating stamp set Hand Penned Petals.  I've used one of the lovely frames in the Messages die along with some coordinating Pale Papaya ribbon and Genial Gems.  

This card is a fun fold!!  The base card is the normal standard size and then there is a thinner card for the opening section.  I've used the gorgeous paper for the front and when you open the card, the paper features again on either side of the centre.  

The scallop edge on the front of the card is one of the fun dies from the Penned Flowers dies which coordinate with this great stamp set and paper.  

UP next is Joy with her gorgeous project   Make sure you keep hopping around everyone to see lots of wonderful inspiration!!  

Here's a link to a video showing you how I created this card.

Here's the list of everyone in the hop in case you get lost along the way!!

Did you know this gorgeous paper is discounted this month?  It's 15% off which is sooo great.  Click here to see all the discounted papers - but only for this month!!
