CTC 141 – Birthday Foil Frenzy Pretty Packaging

A big hello to all our regular CASEing the Catty blog hoppers and a warm welcome to those who are new!

CASEing the Catty is a weekly hop, where every Sunday the design team showcases projects from a particular section of the catalogue by Copying And Sharing (CASEing) with you how they have used the design and changed elements, colours, textures or anything else to make it their own.

This week we are focusing on the Birthdays Section of the Catalogue on Pages 68 – 85.

I decided to use the image on Page 76 this week to create some Birthday Foil Frenzy Pretty Packaging using this as the basis for my design –

Have you noticed our gorgeous Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper in the catalogue?  It is hard to miss with all it’s beautiful sparkle in 4 different colours and 3 beautiful designs!  But just in case – you will find it on page 77 or 189 of the Annual Catalogue.

It is perfect for creating pretty packaging – so thats exactly what I did!

I chose to use the Soft Sky Spotted Page for my project as it coordinated well with the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, not to mention the gorgeous Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon – Oh My Goodness – It’s so soft and smooth – I LOVE it!  I cut out my favourite bear image and touched up some areas like the balloons, hat and bears noses, with the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add some extra shine.

The Pool Party strip of Cardstock under the tag was finished with the Ticket Tear Border Punch for a bit of added fun!

Creating boxes is pretty easy really!  My top was created by trimming 1/2″ of two sides (with an adjoining corner) of the 12″ x 12″  foil frenzy sheet.  I then scored all four sides at 2″ before folding on score lines, cutting one of the score lines in each corner, folding in and adhering the tabs to the inside panels.  To create a base that fits perfectly, just trim an extra 1/8″ off two sides again from the box base piece, score at 2″, cut tabs as before and adhere to create your box base.  It really does save all that measuring!

Here is a close up of the tag –

CTC 125 – Favourite Bigshot Project!

Hi crafty friends and welcome!

It’s Sunday night, so that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty blog hop.  I’m pretty excited about this weeks challenge!  We get to showcase our favourite Big Shot project from the occasions catalogue!

How hard was it to choose! I mean, the Occasions Catalogue had so many great Big Shot projects.  The Lift Me Up Bundle, Custom Tee’s, Nailed It, So Succulent Bundle and not to mention the So Detailed Thinlets, Cool Treats and Dragonfly Dreams!

But for me – well, let’s just say that I am an absolute sucker for a box – so my choice for this weeks challenge just had to be the Window Box Die.

I had seen a picture from Pauline Barnfather at icreatecraft, who had designed a timber like box. I immediately fell in love with it and have been wanting to create my own version since. So this was my chance.  I really wanted to create an antique style box, that reminded me a little of an old jewellery box.  Some Soft Suede cardstock stamped with the Hardwood stamp helped me easily achieve that!

I am so happy with the way it turned out.  Once I created the box I knew it needed some beautiful flowers to top it off.  I haven’t created these flowers for a few years now, so it was fun to really play and make them again.  I used the Flower Shop stamp and co-ordinating punch to create them.  Here’s a better look at the top for you.

Luckily I had kept hold of my retired Antique Brads from a couple of years ago.  I think it really enhances the antique feel of the box perfectly and acts like a little handle to lift the lid open!

You can take a look at how I created these flowers, with my You Tube Link,  at this post – 3D Flower Making.

I hope you have enjoyed tonight’s project.  Now it’s time to hop on over to the lovely Judy May and see what beautiful project she has created for you!

Gift Box Punch Board for On Stage Roomie Gifts

Hi everyone.

I was back on Sunday Night for a Stamp It Sunday live Facebook video again!

It took LOTS of cups of tea to recover from the fun of our Stampin’ Up! 2016 On Stage Live Event from the 3-6th of November, but it was sooooo much fun!  There are lots of new goodies that I am going to enjoy sharing with you all over the coming weeks to get you creating!

The weather was gorgeous the entire time. And Southbank was buzzing in the evenings!

So for my Stamp It Sunday Video I decided to show you the pillow gifts I made for my room mates!

I had been to LUSH to source something to help the girls relax, unwind and invigorate themselves ready for the new catalogue and next year.  LUSH have the most amazing bath products.  I had come across one called ‘Dragon’s Egg’ in the past and it smelt amazing, all the things I just mentioned for the girls rolled into one delicious bath bomb! So I grabbed a few of those and headed off to my craft room, trusting that my punch boards would help me package these beauties just right!

So out came the trusty Gift Box Punch Board. I honestly have to say that I love how simple it is to create your own special packaging with these Punch Boards. A simple Belly Band and some ribbon later, and our bath bomb was all set to deliver!

The Irresistibly Floral Speciality DSP can be teamed with any colour Designer Paper, but I chose Blooms and Bliss for my Belly Band, a bit of Coordinating Sweet Sugarplum ribbon and a tag finished it all off beautifully. So simple – So elegant! And those Stitched Framelits set EVERYTHING off so well! They are a must for every craft room!

Here are the measurements so you can Make It To –

My gift box is a 10″ x 10″ piece of DSP to make the 3.25 x 3.25 x 3.25 box as written on the Punch Board.

The belly band is made my cutting 2 pieces of DSP 1 3/4″ x 7″ and scoring them both at 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 5 1/2″.

Join the pieces along the 1/2″ end – joining right sides together. Punch the opposite end of both of the Belly Band pieces using the scallop tag topper punch.  Wrap around your box and secure with ribbon.

Take a look at the video at My Paper Oasis You Tube Channel to watch how its done.

Happy Crafting everyone
