CASE-ing the Catty - Last Week of Sale-a-bration!

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

 Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week. Wow, it's the last week of February already and the last week of the Sale-a-bration, too.

Last weekend we were in Brisbane catching up with our niece who was moving into her university accommodation and we picked up some recycled floorboards to (hopefully) repair our bedroom floor, so that we can refinish the hardwood floor and not have carpet. The jury is still out on that, but hopefully our amazing builder can make it happen!

For our final CASE from the Sale-a-bration brochure, we have a very flexible sketch to get your creative inspiration going. It is based on the watermelon project on page 4 that is shown on the bottom right in the photo above.

You can see the bones of the layout more easily in the image above.

I have stayed fairly close to the layout, using the bold floral design from the Sale-a-bration Sunny Days Designer Series Paper for the background with a narrower border than the sample.  This paper is a little different, in that the stems and leaves are black, so it gives it a pop. I wanted to bring in the black in my focus panel, but solid black was too harsh, so I used a strip of the black and white striped design from the Rock & Roll Designer Series Paper that is in the 2024 January-April Mini Catalogue behind the Basic White pierced panel. I used the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies and cut a second time to extend it into a rectangle.

For the embellishment, I decided to mirror the flowers in the background paper using the Paper Florist Dies. I created a trio of flowers to surround the 'hello' greeting from the Biggest Wish stamp set, that I stamped in Poppy Parade and fussy cut. The foliage was cropped from black card stock using the Timeless Arrangements Dies. I finished with a white Baker's Twine bow in the bottom corner and a trio of gold sequins.

For the inside I added a strip of the Pool Party striped design from the Sunny Days paper pack and a narrow border of Poppy Parade card stock and the Basic White writing panel above. The Petal Pink flower and black foliage was adhered on top of the border to complement the front of the card.

CASE-ing the Catty - Sale-a-bration Trusty Toolbox DSP

Hi there

This week we are CASE-ing the Sale-a-bration brochure, again. We have a wonderful collection of products that you can choose for free, when you place a qualifying order of $90AUD or more before shipping.  PLUS, more products from the Annual Catalogue have been added to the items you can choose.  See all the Level 1 and Level 2 options in my Online Store and make sure to use the Sale-a-bration item number and not the item number in the Annual Catalogue (a little confusing, I know).

This week I was inspired by the awesome Trusty Toolbox DSP, which you can see much better in the Online Store. In particular the huge number of tools displayed on 2 sheets of the paper. There are some dies to crop the images, but you will need to do some fussy cutting as well.

I decided that the pop up Card In A Box would be the perfect way to make use of a bunch of the tools.  It makes a great masculine card for birthdays, Father's Day or to thank someone doing work for you. I made the card box from Lost Lagoon card stock which is one of the coordinating colours and then added some metal plate using the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder and retired Silver Foil.

I have added 2 rails in the box and with the back, there are 3 surfaces you can attach the die cut and fussy cut tools to. I first added the peg board in Poppy Parade to the back and the side flaps and used 1mm foam pads to add the tools to the peg board and then to the rails so they are overlapping and looking like they've been thrown in!  I cropped the spanner from silver foil and added some silver foil accents to the drill and the snips with the dies, overlaying them onto the images cropped from the DSP and trimming where necessary.  The greeting from the Trusty Tools stamp set was stamped in Poppy Parade and cropped with the banner from the Stylish Shapes Dies and added to the top panel.  The 'thanks' from the Biggest Wish stamp set was stamped in black and fussy cut and popped up over the corner of the banner. The pencils were added to the other corner and I finished the banner with 2 black Classic Matte Dots

For the writing panel on the reverse, I have a mat of Poppy Parade and a strip of the metal plate at the bottom with a fussy cut screwdriver and a few nuts and bolts to finish.

The great thing about this card is that it folds up and fits into a standard Medium Envelope for posting.
