Hello Sunday!  Did you have a great weekend?  Are you already counting down the days until the next one?

I am!  Because next weekend I’m going on craft retreat!!!  A whole weekend to do nothing but make cards!

Heaven – right???


But there’s a whole week of work ahead, including a full schedule of posts this week.

You can look forward to a CASEing the Catty hop tonight, Stamp Review Crew tomorrow, Colour INKspiration on Wednesday and Just Add Ink on Thursday night!!!

So much inspiration as I join lots of talented demos around the world who will freely share their creativity with us.

So, what is the CTC crew up to today?

It’s all about the Occasions catalogue today as we’re CASEing projects and ideas from the Succulent Garden section – pages 20-31.

It’s quite a big section covering the Succulent Garden suite plus That’s the Tag bundle, Beautiful You, Watercolor Pencils, High Tide, Dragonfly Dreams, Milestone Moments, Chase Your Dreams, Lucky Elephant, Mediterranean Moments, Custom Tee bundle & Tie Dyed.

Lots of best sellers in that list – so you can expect to see some blockbuster creations on this hop!!!

Quite a few of the sets mentioned above are in high rotation on my craft table at the moment – so it was hard to narrow it down.

But, I kept coming back to this pretty photo using the Beautiful You stamp set…

I have actually already CASEd the bottom card exactly – because I love the colours and styling.

But for this CTC hop, I wanted to step it up and use the elements I love so much to ‘make it my own’.

So, I…

  • kept the DSP panel but shifted it left
  • used a doily but as a centerpiece rather than hiding it behind the DSP
  • featured the girl but added in a gold embossed Mediterranean Moments scene
  • changed the sentiment
  • used vellum behind the doily, rather than for the sentiment
  • changed the yellow to Sweet Sugarplum

I’m very happy with the final layout (it look at little bit of putting the pieces together!).

It contains so many of my favourite elements (Sweet Sugarplum & Pool Party, gold embossing, amazing doily, my favourite lady & vellum!).

Looking at a card like this and knowing that I made it, makes me very happy.

What a hobby!!!
