CASE-ing The Catty Challenge #1

I have an exciting announcement to make, I have been chosen to be part of a talented group of ladies on the Design Team for a wonderful new Challenge Blog - CASE-ing the Catty.  Each week the a section of the catalogue will be chosen as the basis for the challenge, pick a project, colour scheme, stamp set or just an idea.  

Week 1 is to take inspiration from the Gift and Packaging section of the Catalogue (p 6 to 23). There are so many wonderful projects and products I had a little trouble choosing!  I finally decided on the Kraft Polka-Dot Tag-A-Bag at the top of page 6/7.   I made some adjustments* to the bag so it would stand  up on a flat base and decorated with some of the lovely tags and stickers that are part of the Accessory Kit.  The sentiment also comes from this section of the catalogue and is "Four You" on page 19.

There are so many wonderful inspirational ideas in the catalogue, so grab the badge below and come and play along

* To alter the bag trim a small amount from the base of the bag.  Score 1" from the base, and 1" on each side of the bag.  This will create some tabs that can be folded into place, insert a 2"x3" piece of cardstock to give the base some strength and stability and adhere in place.

Happy Stamping
