Stampin' Up! Australia - A Happy Thing - Sale-A-Bration - CASE-ing the Catty #20


Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty!

Today the challenge is all about CASE-ing from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and to use Blendabilities and Framelits. 

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole challenge blog is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.
So check out the Blendabilities and Framelits in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue and find a project that you would like to try.  

There are lots of ideas but here's a few to help you get started -
  • CASE a sketch or layout
  • Try a colour combo 
  • CASE an embellishment and use it on your own project

Most importantly, have FUN!

Guidelines -

  • Create a new project for the current challenge.
  • Mention CTC Challenges in your blog post and link back here so others can join in on the fun.  Please ensure that you link up your blog post, not your whole blog.
  • Mostly SUO (Stampin' Up! ® Only) products (retired or current) to be used in your projects for CTC Challenges.
  • Have fun and inspire others!
I was inspired by the image from page 18 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue, and also by the sketch at The Paper Players. Less is More also have the theme of 'Wings' this week so that was a good reason to use the beautiful bird from A Happy Thing.

My bird is actually an Eastern Yellow Robin which is a bird indigenous to Australia along the eastern coast where I live. Isn't he delightful!!?

My original inspiration:
