Thanks for joining me for a CASEing the Catty Sunday blog hop. The design team will share their projects for the week in this blog hop.
Then, we ask you to join us and share your creations. You can find all the action on our Facebook page.
The theme this for CASEing the Catty #125 is Favourite Big Shot projects from the Occasions catalogue.
As always, a hard decision! But I decided to create with the Dynamic Hexagon embossing folder – because I love it, which definitely makes it a favourite!
It’s currently part of the Urban Undergound suite in the Occasions catalogue and will appear again in the 2017-2019 Annual Catalogue!
I have cased the “Dad” card on the left, and transformed it into a baby card!
This embossing folder has no limits of use and looks great on pretty much every card!
I can cause cracking on your cardstock. To prevent this, spritz your card with water before putting it in the folder. Sounds crazy – but it works!
I made the inside a little more ‘baby’ than industrial using the Moon Baby stamp set (also carrying over – yay!).
Did you know that all bundled pricing finishes at the end of each catalogue cycle – even if the products carry over to another catalogue. That means that you have just over a month to get a 10% discount on the Large Letters framelits & coordinating stamp set. They are definitely a huge investment – but well worth it! And 10% helps!!!
And, while they are bundled, it’s possible to include them in your starter kit!!
Join my Paper Adventures team for the Starter Kit price of $169 and include this bundle (item number: 142348) as your kit selection (remember: it’s fully customisable). You’ll get free shipping too – saving you even more!
There’s so much choice for creating this week – please join us in using the catalogue as your inspiration for a Occasions catalogue Big Shot themed creation.
I love giving gifts!!! Christmas is the perfect time to be able to celebrate the people around you – by spoiling them with gifts.
This year, my major craft project was monogrammed mugs.
I, with the help of Mr Papercraft, made 33 of these delights to give to my colleagues and the staff at the girls’ daycare. The letters are a My Digital Studio (MDS) download – Sweet Details Alphabet, made from iron-on glitter vinyl, which I cut using my Cameo. Super cool idea – very awesome outcome.
Apart from finding an awesome hobby that keeps me busy and lets my creative side loose, one of the things I love the most about cardmaking & papercraft is the uniqueness of what you can create. So, it was perfect (I thought!) to share with you today – on World Cardmaking Day – a card I made during the week for a special little baby with a special name. I was allowed free reign for this design – yay!. I knew that baby Moses’ Mum & Dad are both keen surfers, so decided I would create a Daddy surfboard, a Mummy surfboard & a baby surfboard, and personalise it with his name on the bottom. It ended up super cute & I have heard that the parents love it. And, that is the best praise ever when someone loves what you make.
So, I hope you have a great day and find some time to celebrate what it is about cardmaking that you love. Kelly x
PS, My surfboards were made by tracing (then cutting) the outside edge of the largest Feathers Framelits – a bit different but it worked!
