#CTC211 All My Love


This week we are off to pages 4-9 of the new Occasions Catalogue



I've CASEd the layout from the card top left on page 7:



A base of Rich Razzleberry, with the same theme of butterfly paper but using Tea Room Specialty DSP instead. Diecuts were courtesy of Beautiful Bouquet stamps and matching Framelits. Pearls added to the smallest flowers. The fabulous greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday was stamped in Rich Razzleberry and punched with the Everyday Label punch then added with Stampin' Dimensionals..



Let's hop on over to Michelle's blog and see the lovely creation she has for us. Love the colours she's chosen:

#CTC210 Sale-a-Bration


Welcome back with a new Crew look for the New Year and some new team members!  We're kicking off with a visit to the new Sale-a-Bration catalogue:

I've stayed with my older supplies just to show you can still play along if you don't have your new items yet, using the image middle right on page 9:


I've CASEd the layout using diecut butterflies and a stamped greeting layered over polka dot trim, and velvet ribbon, supplies list below. I've finally dusted off my sewing machine and as above stitched the butterflies onto the Wood Textures DSP


Please feel free to play along. If you haven't got the catalogue in your hands yet I have a link to it over on the right, not far below is another link you can use to add your creation to the Facebook page.  Time to hop over and see what Monique has to inspire us with:

#CTC209 Favourite Holiday Catalogue Project


Another tricky one, there are so many great projects to choose from. I've gone with a project using a set which will sadly discontinue soon


I love these quirky little guys in the So Santa set on page 23


Some of my readers may recognise these as they had their choice at a Christmas Stamp Camp:


I've used a base of thick Whisper White, a strip of Shaded Spruce card, topped with a piece of Tropical Escape DSP. The image was stamped and coloured with Markers and an Aqua Brush. Good old Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the circle and layered onto the co-ordinating Layering Circles Scallop diecut from Shaded Spruce cardstock. Greeting stamped in the same colour - using the Stamparatus meant nobody had a problem with their placement!


I think it is a fun stamp set with the images and greetings ticking the boxes for those of us in the South Pacific region


And what about this guy with his cooking gear on?


Such fun! Anyway, I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas from what we would like to be, a sunny New Zealand (although we've had a serious amount of rain lately). If you're travelling, stay safe and enjoy your festivities.

A short hop today, everyone seems busy busy with Christmas plans, but please pop over and see what the lovely Judy has to share:
