CASE-ing the Catty #62 - Sale-A-Bration Inspiration!

Hello & welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty's Blog Hop!

Each week the Crew members will take inspiration from a section or theme of the current Stampin' Up Catalogues to create their projects.  The acronym "CASE" stands for "Copy And Share Everything".

This week the CTC Crew are choosing a project from the new SU Sale-A-Bration catalogue to CASE.  This little book is overflowing with great products & wonderful ideas!  :)

I have created a pocket for a Stampin' Up! white note card using the Mini Treatbag Thinlit dies & products from the gorgeous Botanicals suite of products:-


The pocket is made from a print from the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper (DSP), with some Sale-A-Bration Botanical Gardens Vellum layered over a strip of the yellow linen print from the same pack of DSP.  The sentiment comes from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.  To add a little bit of bling to the flowers, I have stamped the centres & then added rhinestones which have been coloured black with a Sharpie marker.

My inspiration came from this card on page 5 of the Sale-a-Bration catty:-

If you are feeling inspired, we would love you to CASE a project from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue & link it up in the gallery on the CTC post (click on the icon above).  At the end of each month, the Crew will choose a Winner.

Thanks for stopping by!  :)

Having never made one of these bags, your use of the DSP & flowers has inspired me to give it a go. I love the addition of the sharpie coloured rhinestones. Such a clever & pretty CASE Helen.
