Stampin Dreams Blog Hop Case the Catalog




Well Hello everyone, Welcome to Stampin Dreams Blog Hop - Case the Catalog.
If this is the first time you have joined us, I hope you enjoy the variety of projects by our talented participants...Just a lil teaser for my project...
You are here at Shaz's blog (Sharon Dalton from Gogango, QLD Australia)



I wanted to use a set that I didn't actually own after scouring the catalogue, luckily for me one of my friends in my team had the whole suite....So I asked kindly and she allowed me to make my 'CASE'.... 'CASE'ing can be very broad, you can just use the colour scheme, you can make exactly the same project or you and make your own variation using elements from the project. Check out pages 68 &69 for everything that is Birthday Memories Suite.
As I said I didn't own this suite so I was very cautious about cutting up this beautiful paper. Thankfully this suite also has Dies - Birthday Friends Framelits. So not much fussy cutting for me...except I loved the turtle and the lil squirrel so I had to cut them by hand.


So you are simply left with this outline when you run the Framelits Dies through your Bigshot


I decided to just make a card from the gift bag idea, BUT mine has a see through flap at the front so like the bag you could see behind it. Do you see what I mean now???
I added a Mr Fox on the front of piece of window sheet with some Daffodil Delight cardstock at the top and bottom. Behind the flap I added a piece of matching DSP from Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper with our turtle and squirrel.

I finished my project off yesterday and then today I had another wee thought....I think it needs balloon on the front too....So using the framelits dies again I added some balloons with a small piece of white linen thread.  I also cut out one of the little presents on that beautiful paper.  Now here is the finished project with the balloons...
I do hope that you like my project as well as the one before me. Check out the catalogue yourself and see if there is something in there that you like...Give 'CASE'ing a go... It is so much fun. If you are interested in participating in future Blog Hops here is what is coming up...over at Stampin Dreams 

So please pop over to the next blog, that of Kim Oliver.  I am sure that she will have something truly AMAZING just like the rest of the participants... If you miss any you can go back to them via the list below...

Thanks for dropping by, please leave me some love and I will follow you to your blog and return the gesture. Have a great evening Cheers Shaz xoxo
