CASEing the Catty #149 | Year of Cheer

And just like that, the school holidays are over!

Back to packed lunches, early starts and after school activities!!!

If you have kids, what kind of holiday parent are you?  Love the change up and find it hard to go back, or – at your limits and ready for someone else to entertain them for 7 hours of the day???

I’m a holiday loving mumma – but mostly for the sleep ins I think!!!

Staying up til 1am is a little easier when I know I don’t have to be up at 7am!


Because it’s Sunday, it’s time for another CASEing the Catty project.

Today, we’re CASEing the Year of Cheer section of the Holiday catalogue.

Choose any element of what you see from pages 36 – 47.

I’ve chosen to CASE the colours & styling of this super cute treat bag on page 45…

Although you probably don’t often think of black for baby cards, black and pink together make a cute modern twist on the traditional baby card colours!CTC #149 Hello Baby | kelly kentI’m pretty sure the original Stampin’ Up! project is Flirty Flamingo, but I softened it up a little by having Blushing Bride as the pink.

The DSP choice is the same, and I’ve kept the vellum heart {so much to love about the inspiration card!}.  The vellum is applied using a small amount of Fast Fuse.  It barely shows up through the vellum – perfect!  And even more perfect – buy a Fast Fuse during October and get 2 free refills!CTC #149 Hello Baby | kelly kentI’ve lost count of how many different types of cards I’ve used the Foil Snowflake on now.  They are definitely not just for Christmas!!

The ‘hello’ is from the Hello Friend stamp set – I’ve got a total crush on this stamp set at the moment!  To get the depth of colour I stamped it three times in Blushing Bride using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the placement.

The ‘baby’ is from Happy Celebrations (love that font!) in Basic Black Archival Ink.CTC #149 Hello Baby | kelly kent

And the final fun touches are Black Shimmer ribbon, Gold Mini Sequin Trim, Pearl Jewels and some Shimmery White Hearts.

I’m not sure where the hearts are from in the inspiration card, but cut mine using the Window Box Thinlit.  There’s two sizes in one of the square patterns – just beautiful for accents!

I just love how this card turned out – and although I haven’t forgotten, it reminds the wonderful inspiration contained within those catalogue pages.

Please join us with what inspires you this week from pages 36-47 of the Holiday Catalogue.  And share your creation with us on our Facebook group.

Just Add Ink #349 Photo Inspiration

Just Add Ink Design Team

It’s been a quiet week on the blog for me – after a huge week last week!

Take a breath with me – I’ve been prepping for another mega week of projects!!!

March is the final month of Sale-A-Bration, so be sure to get in touch with me if I can help you to order anything {yep, total enabler over here!}.


Thanks for joining me today for another week of Just Add Ink with this fabulous photo inspiration chosen by Patrice.

No automatic alt text available.

You’re sure to see lots of colour from the design team this week.

I know it was the bright colours that inspired me to ink up my new Happy Celebrations stamp set and use my ‘debossing’ folders for the first time.

The folder create a negative impression which enable you to stamp over the top and keep the white space on the word.

It’s a super cool effect!!!

I used the circles of the macarons in all their beautiful colours to create this fun & happy birthday card…
