CASEing the Catty #100 Presents & Pinecones


Sunday again???  Is it just me, or do they come around quickly???

How was your weekend?

This lucky chicken spent the weekend away celebrating the wedding of my beautiful friends (did you catch the card last night?) and spending time with my besties.

And then back home for some cuddles with the Little Misses.

My cup is full!!!

Congratulations on CASEing the Catty – 100th hop!  Woo hoo!

For this hop we are sharing projects inspired by creations in the Presents & Pine Cones section of the Holiday Catalogue – pages 18-31.

I could have chosen a dozen (or more) catalogue photos to CASE – this section is full of great ideas!!!  I’ve earmarked them for later!

This was my final choice – using the Merriest Wishes bundle.  I really love it but haven’t used it nearly as much as it deserves!

My focus was the features of the gift on the right.

I turned it into this card using the copper foil and Petals & Paisleys DSP.

I also love the photo next to it in the catalogue…

So I got inky again and made this card too, using a simliar layout/theme but different colours & tag.

Let’s Go – 2016 Holiday Catalogue: Christmas & MORE!

Holiday Catalogue 2016 Cover

It’s time – after weeks of seeing the glorious samples coming from the craft tables of demonstrators around the world, everyone can now order from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.

It’s 56 pages of stunning new products for all your Christmas projects & {MORE}!

View the catalogue here, browse the online store or email me to request a card copy (Australia only).

I’m expecting the Cookie Cutter bundle to be a hit with young & old for it’s cute and veratile images.

Reindeer & Santa for Christmas; Eskimo, Gingerbread Man & Teddy Bear for year-round fun!

The matching punch makes it a dream to punch out the shapes including builder pieces such as buttons, bows, hearts and eyes.

It teams well with other Christmas items you already have – like the Perfect Pines stamp set.

Other items to look out for in the new catalogue:

  • Candy Cane Lane DSP (pg 5)
  • Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape (pg 5)
  • Copper Foil (pg 47)

The Holiday Catalogue isn’t just about Christmas.  There’s also Halloween (which you may not be into, but this section is great for ideas for little & big boys!), spring/summer and new year.

I made this fun birthday card using a combination of products from the second half of the catalogue and the Number of Years/Large Numbers set from the Annual Catalogue.

The flower pattern at the top of the card is sponged with the new brayers (so lovely!) in Rich Razzleberry ink over Irresistibly Floral DSP.  Such a fun technique – you should try it!

The pretty pattern at the bottom is Petals & Paisleys DSP and the numbers are using Pumpkin Pie Glimmer.  So much fun!
