CASEing the Catty #130 Favourite Project – Occasions Catalogue

Hello!  This is the final post of my day!

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, I hope you’ve enjoyed all the fabulous inspiration on this wonderful Sunday.

3 blog hops in one afternoon is quite the flood!  #sorrynotsorry


Both the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue and Occasions 2017 catalogues retired on Wednesday night.

And from Thursday 1st June, we’ll be exclusively enjoying the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and the wonderful pages of a fresh new catalogue to CASE!

But first, one last look at the 2017 Occasions catalogue – and our favorite projects.

Image may contain: text

I have selected the Window Box Framelit as my Occasions Catalogue favourite.

I was delighted to find out that this was carrying over and will be available in the .

The hexagon shaped box is wonderful, but really, it’s all the embellishment dies that I love.

And the sample on the front cover of the Occasion Catalogue is a perfect example of this!

Love, love, love the patterns you can make for boxes – and cards – using the dies in this set!

I’ve been inspired by a 3D item – the hexagon box – and created a card using this concept.

This card features a mix of retiring and carrying over items.

On the retirement list:

  • Watermelon Wonder cardstock (all the 2015-2017 In Colors retire on Wednesday)
  • Tasty Treats Washi Tape
  • Love Note Framelits (for the cute little heart behind the sentiment)

Just Add Ink #342 – Add “N”

Just Add Ink Design Team

It’s the final Just Add Ink for 2016 – what a great experience to be involved with their design team.

I’m so excited to share with you that I’ll be continuing on in 2017 as a permanent member of the Just Add Ink Design Team.  Yay!!!

Today’s challenge is…

Just Add Ink #342

So much choice – in fact you don’t have to stop at one.

Guess how many “N” subjects I can stretch this project to?

It’s a birthday card for my brother who loves nature – especially hiking along the WA coastline.

Just Add Ink #342 - Add "N". High Tide BIrthday Card. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Do you love the blue tones?  I used Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, Marina Mist & Pool Party for this nautical card.

The High Tide stamp set is stunning – and this may be bold, but I’m touting it as the new “Wetlands” for a popular choice for masculine / neutral cards.

It’s one of my new sets from the upcoming Occasions 2017 Catalogue.

The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment is also new, from the Designer Tee stamp set – a free choice during the Sale-A-Bration promotion starting on 4th Jan 2017.


How many “N” buzz words did you count?  I think there’s 5, but let me know if there’s a ‘n’ I missed!!!

“N” is such a great versatile theme.  Stop by and see what the amazing design team has shared this week and enter your “N” project in the weekly challenge.  Because of the Christmas break, you’ve got until 4th January to create.

Hopefully you all get some crafty time over the holiday period – and maybe even the chance to play with some new toys too!!!

Lucky Elephant Christmas Wishes

I love the cross-over time between being able to pre-order as a demonstrator from the upcoming catalogue and still having current catalogues to play with.

For a short period of time, I can double dip – and have twice as much to play with!!!

Which has the potential for all kinds of crazy creations.

Like these lucky elephant Christmas cards…

Just Add Ink #341 – Colour Challenge

Just Add Ink Design Team

It’s about the chicks this week as I continue to play & share my favourites from the upcoming Occasions & Sale-A-Bration catalogues.

Today is a Just Add Ink post and the challenge for the week is all about colour – Old Olive, Whisper White & Basic Gray.

Just Add Ink #341 - Colour Challenege


With those colours in mind, this is the first of my little chick cards I’m sharing today.

I’m naming this little chick “Olive” and she’s a great ‘layer’!!!

Just Add Ink #341 - Colour Challenge. Hey, Chick. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I love adding layers to a card to build texture.  And twine!

I {LOVE} twine!!!


I’m not sure if it was a purposeful decision to make this embossing folder reminiscent of chicken wire, but I’m loving the happy coincidence if not!!!

You’ll find this dynamic fold in the new Occasions Catalogue.

This chick, who I’m calling “Red” was one of my class cards during the week.  Everyone loved the chicks!

 

Occasions & SAB 2017 Sneak Peek... Hey, Chick! Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.


And finally, this sweet chick was a birthday card for my bestie.

She inspired the selection of this stamp set into my stash {I’d say purchase… but I actually got it for free – don’t tell her!!!}

Occasions & SAB 2017 Sneak Peek... Hey, Chick! Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

I’ve matched it with the Falling in Love DSP – which is just stunning!!!  Also available in the new catalogue.

I’m going to call this beautiful chick “Bloss”.


That’s all my chick shares for today.  There’ll be plenty more as this set is an absolute keeper.

You can earn it for free once Sale-A-Bration starts in January.

Can’t wait til then???  Join as a demo and enjoy all the Occasions & Sale-A-Bration products now!!!

Just $169 gets you into the chicken coop… actually it’s more of a free range situation at Stampin’ Up!  Email me if you want to talk details!!!

Please join us at Just Add Ink for our green, white & gray colour challenge.  You can find the linky on the Just Add Ink blog, along with the other great projects from the design team.
