We're Sale-A-Brating at CASEing the Catty

Welcome back to the second CTC Blog Hop for 2016.  This week the crew are choosing to CASE (copy and selectively edit) any project from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

What is Sale-A-Bration?  In a nutshell it means FREE STUFF!  There's extra benefits if you join Stampin' Up!, there's incentives for demonstrators and a pre-order period, plus a free product for every $90 you spend (a whole booklet of choices).

Tonight I have chosen to feature the Free SAB Stamp Set, Flowering Fields and matching Wildflower Fields DSP and have CASED the cute little gift bag on page 13 of the SAB Catty but made a double pocket card instead.


The pockets on the front of the card hold a little stamped tag and a coffee bag.


There's a few different versions of the Double Pocket Card out there but I tend to follow this tutorial on You Tube but use an A4 size piece of DSP instead and attach the finished 'pockets' to a card front.


  Up next on the hop we have a very cute project from Emma Palonek

What a sweet project Bron. Love how you adapted the layout. There really is so much inspiration from the catalogues, isn't there?

I love how you do cards with different folds every week!! And this one is gorgeous. I love the tag!
Rachel Palmieri said…
You always make the cleverest projects, Bron, and this one is a winner. I'm loving that lovely SAB paper too, such great bold colours.
Julia said…
What a great project!! Thank you for the inspiration! I think I would love to CASE your great double pocket card!!
Tricia said…
Such a clever fun project Bronwyn! I am inspired to give this card a try. The double pocket has so many uses & your version with coffee would be a welcome gift I'm sure!

Gorgeous project, Bron! Love the vintage feel with your choice of DSP teamed with lace. Inspired CASEing! :)
Great idea for making it a pocket card, I think I will be inspired to make one of the these.

I haven't seen the pocket card for a while now, and it's so nice to see your version with this beautiful DSP and lace. Exquisite!
Lillybet said…
Thanks so much for the link to the instructions, Love your card and the tag is so sweet. That paper is so much nicer in real life than the brochure too. Think I may have to case this!
Judy May said…
Beautiful project, Bronwyn. I love all details you have added.

WOW Bronwyn! What a great CASE! Love, love, love the details in this pocket card! I feel a CASE coming on!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
