So Many Favourites CTC#332

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.  

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! catalogues (CATTY).

This week, we are CASEING our Favourite Annual Catty Suite - and what a challenge that is!!  How can we have just ONE favourite!!  I love them ALL!!!

Eventually, I decided to CASE from the Expressions in Ink Suite and in particular the square card in the top left of the image above.  

I've adapted the colours based on the page of Expressions in Ink paper that I chose to use (It's the last one left of my pack because I love all the paper so much - so choosing this design was easy - hahaha).

Instead of the stamping in the bottom left corner of the inspiration project, I've die cut the large flower image from the Artistic Dies in Gold Foil - and then didn't spend the time popping out all the pieces as I loved how it looked all intact!!  I've also used the large leaf die and the Sale-a-bration Be Dazzling paper, and again didn't pop out all the pieces from the die cut image.  

I've also used some of the lovely frames from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack to highlight the journalling pieces.  The title piece at the top was stamping using the Sale-a-bration set In Your Words.  The whole stamp says:  'There is magic in every beginning'   but I only wanted the first four words so I used my Shaded Spruce marker to colour those words and then hand wrote the rest of the title.  I've also stamped the little dots from the Artistically Inked stamp set using Bumblebee ink.  That's the only stamping on the page because the gorgeous paper and die cuts did everything!!  

The frame around the photos comes from the left over gold foil pieces in the ephemera pack - so no waste of that glorious foil!!  The last step was to add some of the gorgeous sequins from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack.  

UP next is the amazing Tina!!

If you have ever though about being part of my Handmade Team - then NOW is a good time to ask me about the benefits and joy of being part of our amazing Stampin' Up! family.  


  1. Love the way you've translated the design to a scrapbook page and it is AMAZING! I don't blame you for leaving all the bits intact.

  2. Another beautiful scrapbook page, Julia. The layout is perfect for it and your photos work really well with the colours, too.

  3. Wow! You scrapbook pages are always amazing. The DSP looks great for the background and all of the elements you added work so well together.

  4. Wow that is a fabulous page!! I love how you have kept the pieces in the dies.
