Project Life CASE

Welcome to this week's Blog Hop - hopping through the catalogue in the Project Life Chapter!!  Whether you begin with my blog or you have come from the lovely Rachel, and her gorgeous project,you are very welcome.  

I have CASED the little pocket at the bottom right of the Project Life page on the first page of the chapter - and I've used the inspiration to create a card - can you see the resemblance????

For my CASE I used the same colours at the PL images to make it easier for me in the decision making process!!  As the original photo was a black and white photo, I've used smoky slate only to paint my central image - and I really love the effect!!

The little dots and the greeting come from Endless Birthday Wishes - and I was pretty impressed I was able to replicate this part of the card!!  I've used the same washi tape and the embellishments are similar too.  My central image is from Best Thoughts - what a beautiful stamp this is!!

And then I got totally carried away and tried some other colours - Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss for this card!!

And this is so NOT my favourite card - in fact I'm slightly embarrassed by it!! But I thought you might like to see it too - just to see where ideas generate and travel!!  Thank you so much for hopping through our Project Life chapter and I hope you are totally inspired!!  (I know it's been really great to see the gorgeous projects!!)  Now it's time for you to check out the next blog!!

and if you get totally lost, just click on the Casing the Catty blog and follow the links from there!!!


  1. Julia, I love all three of your cards, and it's great to see how you were inspired. I had to go open up my catalogue to totally check out what you'd cased and its brilliant.

  2. Beautiful colouring on both cards Julia, love the black and white one, and those little embellishment touches make such a statement.

  3. Gorgeous Julia, can't decide whether I like the Slate or Blackberry version the most, they both look amazing! Love how you replicated the clip element of the design. :)

  4. I CAN see the resemblance. Great CASE! I think the black & white one is my favourite, but they are both beautiful. :)

  5. I can see the resemblance. What lovely cards Julia although my favourite would have to be the monochrome black and white one! Stylish and beautiful.
