CASEing the Catty #121 Sale-A-Bration

Welcome to CASEing the Catty #121 – our final hop featuring the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

That’s right!  As of the end of this month, Sale-A-Bration 2017 will be finished and there won’t be any further chances to redeem Sale-A-Bration products.

There’s lots to choose from across 3 releases – see the gallery at the end of this post for all the choices.


You’re going to love the projects the crew are sharing today.

My CTC projects were a little multi-taskng opportunity.

I caught up with a fabulous friend this weekend who asked me to bring along any blank / no sentiment cards I had lying around.  I was under strict instructions not to make any extra work for myself.

I completely followed those instructions – and created these lovely sentiment free cards for her as part of my CASEing the Catty requirements.

Sneaky – huh?

I love a ‘no sentiment’ card, so these were super fun to make.

What did I CASE you ask???

Well, it was the 2nd release flyer that was part of my plan, since I haven’t yet featured this in a CTC post.

Specifically, the cards on the front cover…

From those samples, to these inspired creations…

The first card used the doily feature, watercolour centrepiece & some of the pieces from Carosels & Cupcakes stamp set.

The next card uses the Stylish Stems Framelits along a centre panel with some of the Sale-A-Bration glimmer paper as a feature.

And the final card uses the sketch layout from the card – but in a monochromatic Night of Navy & Whisper White theme (with a touch of burlap / Kraft).

I can’t pick a favourite… can you?


With Sale-A-Bration nearing to an end, it’s time to stock up on any of your basics and/or buy the items on your wishlist.

You can shop in my online store 24-7 (host code: BCXWWYKA), or email me your order.

Stamp Review Crew – Swirly Birds

swirly-bird-banner

Hey there 2017!!!

My first design team post for the year is with the Stamp Review Crew.

I’m delightful to be hopping with this talented group of international demos again this year.

You’re currently with Kelly in Australia, but please hop all the way around as you get inspired for projects created with the Swirly Bird stamp set.

This cute & swirly set has a matching set of framelits.  I confess to having used the framelits more often than the stamps, so it was lovely for these projects to focus just on the stamps.


I’m sharing two cards today.

First, the ‘bird’…

Stamp Review Crew - Swirly Bird. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

This card was a custom request by a friend as a housewarming card for a family with 5 kids.

I made the birds into a mummy & daddy, and changed the eggs into little hatchlings in the nest.

Love the cloudy DSP background?  That’s a Sale-A-Bration freebie, which will be available with every $90 (Australian) purchase from 4th Jan (2 more sleeps!).


My second card is ‘swirly’…

Stamp Review Crew - Swirly Bird. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I used the spots and swirls from the Swirly Bird stamp set to create a lively background for my dragonfly family.

The dragonflies are also available from 4th Jan!


With so many pieces in this stamp set, there’s lots you can do with it!

Next up on the hop for inspiration is the wonderful Debra Burgin.

If there’s broken links anywhere along the hop, head back to the main Stamp Review Crew page for a full list of participants in this hop.  The SRC post goes live just a touch later than mine, so if that link doesn’t work either, check back a little later!!!

Hope your New Year has started in style.

Mine involved friends, family, craft and some household organisation.  If that’s the way my year continues, I’m a happy girl!!!

I’m looking forward to lots of crafty fun in 2017 – please join me on mypapercraftjourney.com, Facebook & Pinterest so you don’t miss a thing!

Butterfly Explosion! JAI304

It’s Just Add Ink time again – is it just me, or are these weeks flying by?

A great inspiration challenge this week with a bold photo chosen by Jodene.

Those colours just pop!  I’m not sure where in the world this is – but it looks like somewhere I’d like to visit!!!


For me, it was the colours that formed most of my inspiration.  As well as the idea of something floating in the sky.

Here is my butterfly explosion card…

Just Add Ink #304 - Butterfly Explosion card. Kellly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.Unfortunately the mason jar framelit & stamp set is on the retired list (from many a years back), but it was just such a perfect image for my butterflies to be escaping from that I couldn’t resist using it (maybe some of you still have it in your collection???).

The gorgeous butterflies, however, are very much available.  You can find them hanging out in the Annual Catalogue as part of the Garden in Bloom stamp set.  This set is so lovely and gets regular use at my house!

What’s better than one sweet butterfly???  An explosion of sweet butterflies!  Kelly x
