CTC #81 - Birthdays

CTC 81 - Birthdays

Exciting News!
Throughout the month of June we are looking for NEW CREW MEMBERS to join the CASEing the Catty Design Team from July onward.  If you're interested, make sure you check out the details at the end of this post.

Welcome to the Birthday Blog Hop for CASEing the Catty.  The Crew are sharing projects from the Birthday Section of the brand new, annual, Stampin' Up! Catalogue (pages 10-25).

Birthday Section - Pages 10-25
Page 18 - Celebrate Today

I've combined the layouts from the two cards featured on page 18 using the Celebrate Today Stamp Set and a new colour combination.


Thanks for hopping by.  You can link back to Liz or onto Julia's blog and follow the hop to check out the birthday projects that the crew have CASED (copy and selectively edited).

Want to try out for the CTC Crew?  Play along with at least one of our June challenges (CTC #81 through to #84) and link your project on the CTC 81 Blog Post.  We are looking for Australian or New Zealand Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who regularly update their blog.

The DT join in a hop when we can and exclusively use SU products for our CTC projects. We CASE (copy and share everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, to name a few examples, as a springboard for our own creations.

Interested?  Hope to see you in the link up.

This is a fabulous colour combo, Bron, & works beautifully with your design. The balloon looks great tucked in with the pennants, & I love the added texture from the tassels, twine, glimmer paper. :)

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…
