CTC61 My Favourite Occasions CASE


Welcome back to another year of CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hops. I am so glad to be back in the craft room creating again.  It felt like it had been ages, but was only a few weeks.  After 3 weeks of school holidays, I think I found my sanity in there. 

Today I am sharing my favourite project from the Occasions Catalogue.  There were so many to choose from, but I decided I loved the Going Places suite the most.   Whilst browsing the catalogue, my eye was drawn to the cute box frame on page 38.  Here is a picture of how it appears in the catalogue. 



I had an A4 sized black frame sitting around empty, so it was perfect for this project. 


This is my first sewing ever on a card, well technically it isn't a card is it!  Here is a close up of my awesome sewing lol.  I snipped up some leftover reindeer clips from the Holiday catalogue for my little flags. My trusty Owl Builder punch supplied the little glimmer hearts. 


When I finished making the frame I felt it needed a card to go with it.  There were a few extra bits on my desk so I made this matching card.  I wanted to make this more neutral so I omitted the red glimmer hearts & replaced them with Sahara Sand & Vanilla ones. 



The Going Places DSP stack has such lovely masculine prints & patterns & is sure to be a favourite amongst a lot of my customers.  I bet you will love it too.

 

I actually surprised myself picking this as a favourite project as there were so many "pretty" projects to choose from.   I can't wait to see what everyone else has chosen for their favourites!   To continue the hop click through to ELIZABETH, I bet she has something delightful to share.





Thanks for stopping by

  5. I have to agree with other comments here Tricia - your framed piece is so much nicer with the extra white space around it. Two fabulous projects.

  6. Such a beautiful CASE, your framed project is gorgeous. I love the stitching, it looks fabulous, you did a great job- and cutting the reindeer clips is inspired, such a nice effect with the flags.

  7. Tricia. Good on you for choosing this CASE. What an excellent job you've done on it. I love the Picture frame and the way you've used the map full on for it, and then reduced it to a band on the one card. Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Absolutely stunning, Tricia! Your framed art is fabulous. The bolder choices you have made with the hearts, layered sentiment & large frame really make your design pop. The neutral, masculine card is a winner too! :)

  9. You clipped the reindeer clips?! Ha, I laughed (in a good way) at your creativity. This is one gob smacking, amazing CASE! I bought this set so my hubby will get some decent cards from me as I don't enjoy making cards for blokes but I think this set will change the way I think.

  10. oooh I LOVE your CASE! I would never have thought to stitch - to me that was a marker job, but doesn't it look AMAZING!! I love this suite too, so your work is definitely an inspiration for me, so THANKYOU so much for sharing your creativity!!

  13. Oh Tricia what a fantastic CASE - I liked the frame in the catty - but I LOVE your frame! The thin black and wide white matting make the centrepiece the centrepiece - if you know what I mean. They drew me into your frame! And that stitching is stinking cute - I've never tried that but am itching to CASE your CASE!
