Happy Sunday & welcome to the CASEing the Catty Sunday blog hop.

Each week a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Australia & New Zealand create projects that are inspired by selected pages from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

It may be a colour scheme, embellishment feature, layout, design or product use that catches our attention.


Today we’re CASEing the first section of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

This includes the Avant Garden stamp set and Carried Away Designer Series Paper.

CASEing the Catty #113 - Sale-A-Bration pg 4-7

Both of these products are great – and free with any $90 purchase ($110 in NZ).  There’s no limits, so you can earn the whole catalogue if you’ve got a big wishlist!!!

I’m currently getting lots of use from the Carried Away DSP and matching Lift Me Up bundle.

My project today was a birthday card that matched the styling of the scrapbook page on page 6.

I loved the layout and it came at perfect time to create a birthday card for a work colleague whose name would fit beautifully on the front.

I do love a personalised card!!!

I replicated the balloons as a background feature and carried over the large letters for her name.

The scrapbook page used the medium size balloon – I used the smallest size.

How awesome that the dies come in multiple sizes – perfect for every project!!

One of the things I love most about this project is the added little details on many of the balloons!

All but one of the balloon as are die cut except one – which is heat embossed.  What a cool touch!  The SU! designers are so clever!

Of course, because it was her birthday, I needed a birthday stamp too!

For this card I used one from the Tasty Trucks stamp set – which is also a Sale-A-Bration reward.


That’s all from me today.  Next up on the hop is the ever delightful Kathryn

Sale-A-Bration 2017 Join


Joining Stampin’ Up! means different things for different people.

My Paper Adventures team has grown during 2017 with Sheila, Anne & Mandy joining the fun.  Welcome!!!

Sheila joined so that she could come to the OnStage event which is being held in Perth this April.

Anne joined to save money on her favourite products.

And Mandy joined because she wanted to fully absorb herself in a new wonderful hobby.

It doesn’t matter what your reason is, it could possibly be the best decision you’ve made!


I’m so excited to have new team members – stamping is more fun with friends!

Using some of my new products from the Occasions & Sale-A-Bration catalogues, and a demonstrator supply stamp set (order code: 135815), I made welcome gifts for the new team members.

Every gift starts with a card!  For the card, I used the Vertical Garden and All Things Thanks stamp sets together with the Carried Away DSP.

Welcome to Paper Adventures. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Then the gift – engraved bone folders personalised for our team by Courtenay at Etch n Scratch.

Welcome to Paper Adventures. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

The bone folders were packaged using my Envelope Punch Board and decorated with Carried Away DSP, ‘Best Decision Ever’ sentiment from the demo supply set of the same name and a cute little paper aeroplane (which is our team logo) from the Iconic Occasions stamp set – how convenient is that?


Stampin’ Up! offers cute packaging options and I try to use them whenever I can.

So, I finished it all off by putting the card and bone folder in an embossed glassine bag and holding it all together with some banners, another aeroplane and a gold binder clip.

Here’s a close up of the embossing – it looks amazing!

ESAD Blog Hop – 2017 Occasions & SAB Sneak Peek

Images © Stampin' Up!

Hello and thank you so much for joining me for today’s ESAD blog hop.

ESAD info blue

Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world are getting excited because there’s a new catalogue full of beautiful products that will release on 4th January 2017.

To share the excitement, today we’re hopping across Australia & the South Pacific and previewing some of the products that you’ll be able to buy in the new year.

You’ll also see some products you can earn for free.  January – March is Sale-A-Bration, which means a choice of fabulous free product with every $90 order.


There’s so much I’m excited about – and I know there’ll be even more on my wishlist after this hop!

Today I’m sharing projects I’ve made with the Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating Up & Away Framelits.


The first card is a spinner card using an ombre hot air balloon as the centrepiece.

The coloured layers are easy to make with the dies – there 5 layers that fit perfectly behind the intricate hot air balloon die cut.  Easy peasy!!!


I’ve used the layers again for the second card – this time in a striped pattern.

This project is CASEd from the Occasions catalogue.  If you’d like a copy of the catalogue and don’t have a current demonstrator, please contact me.

For this card, I’ve added in the Carried Away DSP, which you can choose for {FREE} if you purchase this bundle in wood ($90.25).  Or purchase in clear ($78.25) & other catalogue favourite, bringing the total to over $90 and claim you free paper.

The final card I made used one of the hot air balloon stamps.

I’m loving the colours for this card – Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum.  So fun & fresh!!!

Are you totally taken with this set???  I am!  It’s so versatile with 6 large sentiments in this set plus 3 small sentiments, so you’re covered for all occasions.

And I like that hot air balloons lend themselves to all types of cards – female, male, kids – just change up the colours & design!

The other bonus for me in this set is the cute clouds – they are so handy to have in your collection!

As you travel along the hop – next stop is the fabulous Lou Kitzelman – I bet you are going to be unable to resist the gorgeousness and your wishlist will grow!!!  You’ll want products you didn’t notice before!

If this sounds like you, you might want to consider joining us as a demonstrator.  All the products you see will be yours at a minimum 20% discount, you’ll get early access & other great perks!
