Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper


Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! Welcome from Helen’s lovely blog!

This week the Blog Hop challenge is all about CASE-ing a project that displays Christmas Trees from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue.

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole blog hop 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.

I was inspired by the punched DSP gift card on page 8 of the catalogue. I used the Circle Framelits to cut the image from the DSP and I also used the same size framelit to cut a piece of cardboard (the same cardboard backing that comes with the glimmer paper) to cut a piece to stick it to...so it looks like a piece of chipboard! :)

In the name of further up cycling.....I used my often stamped grid paper to make a little envelope with the Envelope Punch Board. Don’t let your grid paper go to waste people! :)

Here's my inspiration image:
