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!
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!
