Retiring Punches for CTC#229

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge. 

Our Challenge is about CASEing the Catty.  To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to inspire you with our Stampin' Up! catalogues as we CASE from the amazing variety of projects illustrated.

This week, we are CASEing our favourite retiring Punch.  We have only 2 more weeks left of our current Catalogue, so we're making the most of the remaining time to say a fond farewell and hurrah to our favourites!!

I actually didn't have too many of my punches retiring, but these 2 are a couple of my favourites - the Fox Builder Punch and the Banner Duet Punch.  I really love the quick way the Banner Duet Punch adds a little greeting to a project, and the Fox Builder Punch is just too adorable!!  

I've cased the card at the top left of the photo above from page 87 featuring the two cute little cats, and the card on the right in the photo below from page 56 with a fun way to use the banner punch.

And you may notice that I'm still on my quest to scrap lots of pages!!!

The Banner Punch element of my page is at the top left of the page and the little cats at the bottom.  

My photos feature a cut little puppy so I had to add an extra little critter using the Fox Builder Punch.  

The title of my page was inspired by tag arrangement for the banner card.  I've added a stamped background using the Hardwood stamp set - another absolute favourite that's retiring at the end of this month!!!  I've added some extra detail using the metallic brads and corrugated elements heart shape.  

This little heart dialogue box is sooo sweet, and says everything for a page  featuring our children!!

Up next is the lovely Peta who has also been inspired by the same punch as I have!!

Would you like to join in too?  Get creating a brand new project featuring your favourite retiring punch and add it to our facebook challenge page!!

Until Next Week,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x
