CASEing the Catty #86 - Everyday Occasions

Hi there and welcome to our Sunday night blog hop for CASEing the Catty.  This week the crew are CASEing projects from the Everyday Occasions Section of the annual Stampin' Up! catalogue - pages 66 - 91.

The Design Team exclusively use SU products for their 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.

I'm so glad you've joined the hop.  If you get lost along the way, just click on the banner below to take you to our home blog where you will see a list of participants for this round -

Everyday Occasions

For my project this week, I took inspiration from a card on page 69; specifically the ribbon and banner detail.  Seeing I had lots of stamped die cuts left over from the last planter box card I made, I decided to use those (I don't own the Bunch of Blossoms stamps and matching punch ... yet ... lol) and go with the matching colour palette from the 'scraps'. 


There's about a dozen of the crew joining the hop this week and I'm really looking forward to seeing all the different project ideas.  Although I think our hops should come with a warning that reads something like this - "Beware ... if you continue on with the CTC Blog Hop, your Wish List may grow substantially long and your credit card may go into meltdown".  Well ... it's usually the case with me ... I have put in a personal order just about every week since the new catty release! It's a dangerous business this paper crafting ... so if you're game you can hop back to the lovely and talented, Liz Gross at Lilly Loves Paper or venture onward to one of our newest crew members, Kelly Kent at My Paper Craft Journey to see what projects from the catty they have CASED.  In fact, the next three ladies on this hop are all new crew members - Kelly, Krissy and Deb.  A huge welcome to you all!

Wow! There's just so much inspiration in the catty, especially in the section that we are focusing on this round.  It was hard to decide on just one project; just as well we get to re-visit this section later in the month.

Every month we have a challenge link up where you can join in the fun too.  The link below will take you to our July challenge -

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!

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…
