CASEing the Catty #132 – Birthdays

Hello Sunday!

It’s been a crazy, amazing & wonderful week for me, starting with a long weekend Monday and finishing this weekend with my 2017 Catalogue Launch Event.

For the first time, I tackled a retreat style event with 17 wonderful stamping friends.  It took hard work, the help of my stamping army and a few late nights, but it all came together to create a fabulous day of fun, creativity and friendships.  We talked about getting a group shot, but didn’t quite get around to it – too much stamping to do!

Here’s an action picture…

The ladies had a great time playing with new & old favourites from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

I was itching to use one of my top 10 purchases – Little One stamp set, a sweet baby set with an oh-so-cute teepee!

But… the theme this week at CASEing the Catty is Birthdays!  Did you love Mel’s beautiful 50th birthday project?

No automatic alt text available.

Luckily for me, the inspiration for CASEing the Catty only has to come from these pages.  The theme can be anything you like!

So, I used this beautiful sample from the catalogue to inspire my colour choice, design features & layout.

This is my Little One baby card…

Of course I had to add some Kelly touches, so it all sits over some vellum and I’ve white embossed the sentiment.

The inside has a touch of simple decoration – some of the new washi tape.  I was so excited to see it come in solid colours this year, in packs of the same tone!
