Hello Sunday!!!

Today at CASEing the Catty we’re sharing projects that were inspired in some way by pages 12-15 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

You can participate too – it’s easy!  Just choose a sample, feature or element of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue – pages 12-15 and make it the starting point of your own creation.  You can copy the entire project or be inspired by the elements.


My catalogue inspiration today was the set of cards made by the Stampin’ Up! creative team using the All Occasions stamp set.

One of the things I love most about CASEing the Catty is the layout inspiration – it’s always a wonderful starting point!

I turned the card at the bottom right into a wedding card…

And the card at the top left into a monster birthday card…

CASEing the Catty #111 Sale-A-Bration

Did you love the switch to Facebook for CASEing the Catty last week?  We had so many amazing entries CASEing the projects from the Party Animal suite & next few pages of the catalogue.  Overall for CTC#110 we were CASEing pages 4-7 of the Occasions Catalogue.

Quite a few people thought they couldn’t participate because they didn’t have the stamp sets in this section.

Hopefully, we’re getting the message out – but just in case you missed it – CTC isn’t about recreating the sample projects in the catalogue, but more taking whatever inspiration you can from the photos.  It might be the layout, colour combination, design feature, stamp set or overall theme.

Let the catalogue start your creative process and see what you come up with!  It’d be great to see more stampers join in again this week.


This week is CTC#111 and it’s all about introducing the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

The crew has free range on the whole catalogue this week – I can’t wait to see what sparks everyone’s attention.

For me, it’s another Inside the Lines card – the paper has 4 designs and I’m working my way through them!  You can see two of them here.

My card is a variation of the design at the bottom right of the sample picture above (with perhaps a touch of the top right too):

To achieve this look, I brayered the DSP with Rose Red ink and then coloured the flowers & dragonfly with my new Watercolor Pencils before giving the flowers a once over with an Aqua Painter.

Adding water to the pencils smooths the colour & blends it beautifully.

How pretty is the Rose Red?  One of my team pointed out that I rarely use Rose Red.  Here you go Anne – Rose Red in action!

The dragonfly is embossed in copper, and so is the sentiment, which is from the Sale-A-Bration set “Any Occasion”.


I’m making the effort in 2017 to decorate the insides of my cards.

I’m on beginner level, so it’s a strip of DSP, some dragonflies and a birthday sentiment!

It does add another layer of love to the card.

I’m sure the projects on this hop will inspire some wonderful creativity and add a little more to your wishlist!
