CTC 148 – Kits and Memories & More

Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks CASEing the Catty Challenge.

CTC 148 is all about Kits and Memories and More – from either the Annual or Holiday catalogues.

 

I am a big fan of the kits that Stampin’ Up! produces.  They come with absolutely everything you need – minus snail adhesive – to create stunning cards. Imagine creating 20 cards with everything at your fingertips – dimensionals, ribbons or twine, embellishments, stamp set, ink spots, even a basic clear block is included in selected kits. They are fully portable and packed in a gorgeous box, so you can even take them on holidays – its like having a travelling card class!

The kits have full colour pictures, easy directions and are perfect for the beginner card maker and the more advanced alike!  The bonus for the beginner is that you have everything you need to begin creating right away!  No one would ever know you have just started when you produce a card from one of these kits!

They’re also a great springboard to get your creativity flowing and give you ideas for creating more cards.

I decided this week to simply make up one of the kits I had sitting around in my craft room since I purchased it – The Soft Sayings Card Kit.  I fell in love with the soft, watery backgrounds and gold embellishments, on page 10 of the Annual Catalogue.

I changed a few of the cards slightly when creating, but I mostly created them as they are supposed to be.  Because sometimes even those of design teams like the creating to be done for them! Lol.

CTC 148 - Kits and Memories and More - Soft Saying Card Kit

It only took 1 hour to create the 20 cards in this kit. Did you know you can even purchase a refill kit to make another 20 cards!  I encourage you to give one a try!

Now its time to hop on over to Judy and see what has inspired her this week!

CTC 128 – Favourite Kit

Hi everyone.  I seemed to have been MIA the past couple of weeks as I prepared for the Picture to Page show in Pakenham.  But I am back this week for another awesome CTC Challenge!  This week we get to CASE our Favourite Kit from any Catalogue!

I do have a couple of favourite kits in the catalogue – especially the Watercolour Wishes Card Kit. But for todays hop – I decided to try something a little different.  I have always liked the Perfectly Wrapped Kit on page 159 in the current Annual Catalogue, but it was one of those kits I never actually got around to purchasing!

I thought it was such a bright fun kit, and just a bit different to our usual kits with all its fun packaging.  I had so much fun creating for this challenge!  I had never thought to CASE a kit before!

So today, being Mother’s Day in Australia, I thought all that cute packaging may just come in handy for some lovely little gifts!

I used the Grateful Bunch stamp set and Blossom Bunch Punch to base my mini kit around.  I am just a bit sad this set is retiring! I loved the lace and the triple flowers that you could layer together were so quick and easily … not to mention that is my most favourite butterfly …. sob…

Anyway – here is what I came up with!

CTC 128 Favourite Kit Projects by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis using Stampin' Up! Grateful Bunch and Blooms and Bliss DSP

I created the gift bag by using our Kraft Tag a Bags (also retiring).  I simply stamped the bag, folded the base and adhered the corners underneath to create an open bag.

The Clear Tiny Treat Box was simply decorated with some hand stamped Whisper White card, scored and folded for inside the box, with a belly band wrapped around and a cluster of flowers popped on the top.

And instead of creating the cello bags – I CASEd the design and turned it into a card to suit the occasion!

The sentiments from this suite really do go well with the Mother’s Day theme.  I hope that where ever you are today, and whom ever you consider your ‘babies’, that you are having an amazing day! Every woman is fabulous and deserves to be treated special xx

Don’t forget – you can play along too by simply adding your photo to the CTC 128 album on our Facebook page HERE.

Now its time to pop around to see what the rest of the crew have created for you.

Next on the hop is the amazing Julia Quinn!

Happy Stamping!!!

Watercolour Wishes Card Kit

It seems I have been going mad for kit projects lately – and I HAVE!

I have kits super refreshing after such a busy year, to allow mw to create, without having to ‘think’ too much!

I took my Watercolour Wishes card kit away on a short trip with me as I knew i wouldn’t have to take anything else other than adhesive.  This kit truly has absolutely EVERYTHING you need to create 20 beautiful cards, in a number of different sizes.  It would be a great gift for the crafter who is just beginning or has very little supplies, as well as the experienced crafter.

The kit includes everything to decorate the 20 cards, including an exclusive stamp set, a mini clear block, two coordinating ink spots, dimensionals, embellishments, card bases and envelopes.  EVERYTHING! All packaged in a beautiful presentation box.

I have used sentiments specific to my needs – for my wonderful customers who place online orders through me – but the stamp set that comes with the kit has a great variety of sentiments – 10 in all!

There was also lots of embellishments left over – so I added more bling to my cards!

I HIGHLY recommend this kit. And remember – any $90 spent until March 31st will earn you Saleabration Freebies!

Sweet Stack Project Kit

I have had the Sweet Stack Project Kit sitting around here for AGES just begging to be made, and then when I finally pulled it out to complete it, my Early Espresso ink pad needed reinking – alas – it was one of the few reinkers I had not purchased, so it had to wait a bit longer.

I have been caught out a couple of times – so I vowed never to have to wait to craft again, and have all my reinkers now tucked safely away ready to use when needed!

When I finally got to sit down and complete the project, I was thrilled with the final result.  The kit has everything you need except the ink pads and matching stamp set (highly recommend it) and was super easy to follow and complete! The boxes even have the adhesive already applied for you!

I changed my colours up from the kit and used mint macaron on all my cake edges.  That meant I also had to make my own banner pieces – but I think it was well worth the effort!

And I haven’t added the candles as I want to be able to use it for all occasions.

I also have the Cutie Pie thinlets die so I can make more cake pieces whenever I need to.

Fantastic for birthdays, christmas, gifts…any occasion!

Enjoy the Little Things Project Kit

After Christmas I was so Happy to create something…well….not Christmassy really.

And I have to admit – my brain was pretty dead! It wanted to create, but it didn’t really want to think to much about what and how!

That’s where our amazing kit projects come in.  I wanted to make the ‘Enjoy the Little Things’ Project Kit as soon as I saw it at our ‘On Stage’ event in November. So of course it was one of the first things I ordered in my preorder.  So I figured NOW was the perfect time to pull it out and have a play.

I felt a little overwhelmed with all the beautiful bits and pieces when I first opened the kit! I could feel my brain panicking that it was going to have to think! Lol.

But I was armed with my cup of tea and determination, so onward I went.

AND IT WAS VERY EASY TO DO!

You will need the coordinating stamp set – or choose your own – but the kit has everything you need to complete these projects except adhesive and inks.  As usual Stampin’ Up! supply generous amounts of everything you need, and even multiple languages in this kit.

So in a couple of hours, I had completed all the pages (13 in all), and I now get to choose which one I display depending on my mood. Although, I am considering framing my favourites and hanging them in my craft room 🙂

Here’s a pic of the completed ones and my favourites (although that was a bit difficult to choose too!)
