Hello 2019!!! After several years of using the same graphics, CASEing the Catty has had an update!!! I love the new graphics – so bright & fresh! Thanks to the crew members who contributed to the redesign!
A new year also bring us new CASEing the Catty crew members!!! Welcome to the talented ladies who are joining us – Tina Gillespie, Lauren Meiklejohn, Michelle Strazds, Siobhan Fitzsimmons & Shannon Kissane. All of these crafters have been regular contributors to CTC in 2018 and have been asked to join the design team. Is joining a design team on your goals for 2019? Make sure to participate in your favourite challenges on a regular basis as you never know when the design teams are on the lookout for more members!
We’re starting CTC for 2019 with a Sale-A-Bration hop. There’s 19 pages of fabulous showing not only the great free products on offer until the end of March, but also Occasions & Annual Catalogue products they coordinate with.
I’ve chosen to case the layout & colours from the bag on page 6 and turn it into a card.
This layout is very versatile – an embossed background, central element and overlayed sentiment. You could make it work for pretty much any set in the catalogue.
I’ve used the Needle & Thread bundle – primarily inspired by the sensational embossing die in the Needlepoint Elements Framelits. I could use this on every card I make – it’s so pretty!
The detail in the stamps are amazing – just like they’ve been stitched! I’ve used Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake to match the inspiration picture.
The ‘friend’ word is from a fabulous new bundle called Well Said. It contains 51 cling stamps in the stamp set with various greetings and 24 dies containing staple words for papercrafting. It’s an investment – but worth it with all the use you’ll get from this set.
It’s great to be back creating for challenges. They are always such a source of inspiration for me. I’m most inspired with a purpose and some direction – I suffer from severe lack of motivation without a specific card or task in mind!
There’s more fabulous inspiration on the hop. Next stop is one of our talented new crew members – Michelle Strazds.
Thanks for joining us!
