CASEing - Memory Keeping

This is the 2nd week of CASE-ing the Catty challenges!   This week we will be challenging everyone to CASE a project from the Memory Keeping section of the catalog.   For us in the US, that would be catalog pages 24-41.

Can I just tell you how much I enjoying these challenges.   I actually scrapbooked!  My niece and nephew took pictures this past May and I have been wanting to sit down and scrapbook them and now I had the perfect opportunity.    How adorable are my niece and nephew!! 

Thanks to the Stampin' Up! catalog, I also had my layout complete.   All I needed to do was substitute what I didn't have with something different and viola the page is done. 

I CASE'ed the project below which is featured on page 30 of the catalog.    

To make the polaroid that has my niece in it.   First I cut out a rectangle.   Then I drew the square I wanted for my polaroid opening.    Since I do not have square framelits,  I then used my square punch to do my cutting of the polaroid insert.   The tag came from the Two Tags Sizzex.   I die cut the large tag and then used it as a template to cut out my title tag.

Just goes to show with a little ingenuity you can use the products in your closet until win the Mega Millions and can buy everything in the catty!

Hope you can join in our weekly challenges of CASEing the Catty.    Why bang your head try to create something new when Stampin' Up! has hundred of ideas in the catalog!  

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.
