CTC #92 - Everyday Occasions

Hi and welcome to another CASEing the Catty blog hop, this week we are taking another crack at the Everyday Occasions section of the Annual Catalogue.  
This is one of those big sections of the catalogue with so many inspirational images.  I chose the card on the right in the above image from page 86.

 While I kept a few things the same, like the use of the gorgeous Serene Scenery DSP stack and the general layout, I also changed it up a bit too.  I chose one of the other papers in the stack and used some of the wonderful new bakers twine that is coming in the Holiday Catalogue next month.  Such a great set of twine, you get three rolls to tie in with the traditional Christmas colours - Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler, with the third being a really cute gold twine. I wouldn't normally put gold with a natural/organic themed card, but I think it really goes with the lovely gold heads of the plants.

I used the cute little line of dots stamp from Perfectly Wrapped stamp set and the sentiment from Paisleys & Posies.  It is really hard to see the sentiment, no matter how many pictures I took, it just wouldn't come up well in any of them.  The sentiment says "I thank you for your part in my journey" and is from another new product in the Holiday Catalogue.

If you would like to join the challenge this week, please add a link to your project to the CTC Blog using the link above.

Time to hop on over to Kathryn's blog to see what she has created this week.

Happy Stamping


  1. That angle really does add such a point of interest to your card, Monique.

  2. Monique this is lovely, your DSP choice looks so much nicer than the original, gives me such a calm feeling just looking at it!

  3. Oh I love your CASE better than the one in the catalogue! This is one of the best designs in this DSP! The green looks amazing with the paper too.

  4. Isn't this paper just gorgeous!! Love your version with the gold twine, looks fab.

  5. I think the gold is lovely with the nature scene - well chosen for a great card! Kelly x

  6. oh Monique I love the sentiment on your second card, but more I love that the size and angle of your piece of DSP makes you look really closely, even though you already know what it is at a glance. Love the gold with the natural look too.

  7. Love your CASE Monique - that DSP works so well with the green and I love the gold touches. Great layout as well.

  8. Simply beautiful. Great DSP choice and it looks lovely with the gold.
