#CTC258 Wrapped in Plaid Suite

We are back to the Holiday catalogue and the Wrapped in Plaid suite on pages 12-17:

No photo description available.

The card at the top of page 13 appealed to me:

I've chosen to use a base of Cherry Cobbler, and my stitched layer is Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP. I've punched six trees out of a co-ordinating colour with the Pine Tree Punch and embossed each with a different 3D Embossing Folder. They are Country Floral; Subtle, Tufted, Pinewood Planks, Layered Leaves and Tin Tile. 

Every second three is raised with Stampin' Dimensionals. Close up of the Cherry Cobbler trees card:

The greeting is from Perfectly Plaid and Night of Navy ink. Here's the Night of Navy trees card:

A little hard to see the stitching on the plaid but this one shows it better, the Shaded Spruce trees card:

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to play along. Create your card, add the #CTC258 and post to our Facebook page using the link over to the right. Time now to visit Judy and see what she has for us this week:

#CTC257 Kids & Babies

CASEing the Kids and Babies section pages 98-105 this week

Image may contain: text

For me, it was the picture on page 98, bottom left. 

I've chosen a base card of Purple Posy, strips of cardstock (3/4" x 5 3/8"} of Perennial Essence DSP. I've added a Whisper White panel embossed with the Country Floral 3D EF. I chose to cut butterflies from a scrap of Seaside Spray from Butterfly Beauty Dies and used strips of Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere to the embossed panel. Next I've stamped the words from Floral Essence in Night of Navy onto Whisper White, fussy cut and adhered to each of the butterflies.

Might be the youngest of the house is having a birthday this week! Happy Birthday to her!!

Thanks for stopping by. Please hop on over and see what our lovely Shannon has for us this week:

#Onstage2019 - Country Club Suite Part 3

Thanks again for popping back for the next of my #Onstage2019 Perth, WA summary posts.

This was a project inspired by Lisa Mackey who presented the Country Club suite in Hartford. She motivated a few of us who were to be presenting this same suite to make our own mini album versions. I've used a tutorial from Gloria Stengel (if you click on her name it will take you to her tutorial).

At this stage, I've left the album blank to show off the gorgeous Country Club DSP.

Inside the covers are a Waterfall feature

And throughout are pull tabs and pockets

I've used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create tags for the pockets

Some pages are left white with just a trip of DSP

This could be a fun Golf quote book

Or a present for someone - yet to be decided :)

And to finish it off I created a little box to keep it safe for travelling.

My next project was my 'Celebrating' project. I chose a gift to celebrate a role model in my life. She is my aunty and an avid golfer. She's my Mother's sister and they are both staying with my daughter and pets to allow us to travel to Perth for Onstage and a holiday.

I've chosen to spritz a mini pizza box with Garden Green reinker and Isopropyl Alcohol. Added some Crushed Curry cardstock and Country Club DSP with Garden Green twine to wrap around it. Next I made a set of 6 cards, 3" x 3" with matching mini envelopes, 2 each aimed at the Beginner, Casual and Avid stamper. 

I appreciate you staying with me to see all my projects. Thanks Stampin' Up! for the opportunity - I hope you are inspired by my projects, and don't forget to check out the projects from other demonstrators around the world. So many ideas!!

My final picture is some of the lovely ladies I sat with on the day - thanks for making me feel so welcome in your city xx
