I am super excited to let you know I am part of the CASE-ing the Catty Design Team. We all know how amazing the Stampin' Up! catalog is and how much inspiration we all draw from it yearly when it comes out! Well now I am going to be a part of an amazing design team from all over the World that will showcasing WEEKLY all the amazing projects in the catalog with our own little spin on them. You will find that we will draw inspiration from the projects themselves, the colors or just the sketch.
To join in the challenges as well as see weekly inspiration, please click here to visit the site. Please note there is a time difference so if you do not see the challenge posted on Friday, check back a few hours later and it will be up.
I decided to draw inspiration from the beautiful yellow polka dot box on page 7 of the catalog. What can I say I was drawn to the fun polka dots, they just make me smile. Instead of kraft box, I decided to dress up a Tag a Bag Gift Box.
To cover the Tag a Bag Gift Box, I took a piece of 4 1/4" x 7" cardstock and then score it one inch on both side. I then decorated with doily and designer series paper. The trick is to insert the cardstock insert inside the plastic first and then slide both in together. If you do them separately you risk the chance of the doily being damaged. The bow was created and attached to the top of the plastic insert.
The challenge will be open until next Friday at 5 A.M. EST. I hope I am doing the time conversion correctly from the US and Australia. Bear with me as I get this whole time zone down pat. Hope you can join us! Click here to submit your CASE'ed project.
