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!!!

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!
