CTC43 - Hello Life for CASE-ing the Catty Artistic Expression Week

This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing the Artistic Expression section in the Stampin' Up! annual catty. This section covers pages 111-134.  There was lots to choose from, but I decided to share a project I made a little while ago that I just love.

I wanted a fun way to share my favourite photos of the family & what is more fun than this cute kit!  I made up the Hello Life Project Kit, but I wasn't a fan of the Crushed Curry that the kit comes in.  I changed the colour out for Rose Red & Pink Pirouette. I might change it up again when it gets to Christmas & convert it to a Christmas theme too.  That is the great thing about these kits, you can change them to suit your needs.

Here is the kit on page 131

I have this on display in my hallway & it always makes me smile when I walk past it.

The kit is really easy to adapt to your decor & you can change out your photos whenever you wish. It comes with this cute wire frame which looks a bit like a cake cooling rack to me but rest assured it is perfect for pegging all the embellishments & photos to.

The Hello Life stamp set coordinates with this kit & has lot of cute images & sentiments.  I love the swirly font of the "do more of what makes you happy"stamp.   The kit comes with little alphabet letters to create the sign on the top left.  I chose the saying "dream big, live happy" but you can put anything you want there.   

You get lots of "bits" in the kit including the pegs & banners, but my favourite is this fun shaker frame.  I punched out lots of little pink hearts for my shaker frame using the Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  Its perfect for shaker frames.  If you want, you can just use all the little hearts that come in the kit though.

So, if you are looking for a fun project that won't take long, but looks great, this kit is for you.  
Thanks for hopping along with us today.  Your next stop is the lovely Rebecca @ The Paper & Stamp Addict.  I am looking forward to seeing her creations.  Are you feeling arty?
