Welcome to this weeks CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. You may have hopped across from Jackie or be starting right here, but I encourage you to take the full tour of this weeks hop all about the Merry Little Christmas Section on pages 10 – 19 of the New Holiday Catalogue!
So I have to ask….have you got a copy of the new catalogue yet? Have you downloaded a copy for yourself? What do you think? Is there just too much loveliness to choose from! Well hopefully we can help you as you tour around and see what everyone has showcased tonight!
There are a lot of beautiful ideas in these pages of the catalogue. But if you have been following me for a while, you will have an idea that I am a sucker for little boxes. I have NEVER sold off any of my little box dies once they have retired, I just can’t bear to part with them!
Because of that, this weeks selection was an easy choice for me. I created A Merry Little Christmas with the Tags and Trimmings Bundle!
I used the little pillow box to the right (you can make both the pillow box and the stocking with these dies) and turned it into a little gift stocking, because the stockings are what I truly fell in love with when I saw this set!
The gift tag die is what you use to create the back of the stocking, so the little stocking is actually 3D and stuffable too, making it ideal for a gift card, or cash or a few little treats! Who wouldn’t love to get this for Christmas. You could personalise with a name and hang on the tree ready to hand out.
I also thought they would be great as a table place setting, with the cutlery tucked neatly inside! That way you can colour coordinate them to suit your decor for the day! You pop on the guests names to indicate seating arrangements!
And finally I wanted to point out, that just because their primary purpose is for 3D items, doesn’t necessarily mean that is the only way to use them! Don’t add the backing to the stocking, trim off the top and you can quickly and easily create a Christmas Card!
So there you have it! A Merry Little Christmas with Tags and Trimmings!!!
I do hope you have enjoyed my projects today. Now it’s time to continue the hop and head on over to the lovely Monique and see what she has created for you all!
