CTC#111 Sale-A Bration - such an exciting time of year!

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty bloghop for this week where we are taking inspiration from any of the fabulous projects available in the new Sale-A-Bration catalogue.
I wasn't sure where to start so thought I would have a go at one of the kits!

I cut up one of the cards to make this cute box

The kits come with everything to make a sweet set of 8 notecards.  They don't however, come with the pool party ribbon - I added that in, was well as the enamel dots, and the paper doily( in the two I designed different from the set).
I made up half copying the pattern but had a play with some other stamp sets in my collection for  two of the others. One of them  I even turned inside out so that the spots are on the outside.
made following the pattern
This kit uses colours from the Subtles range, so if you purchased some subtle pens, some subtle card and some subtles enamel dots or coordinating ribbon you would be well on your way to spending $90 and earning the kit for free.
made playing with things I already had
I added the Lace doilies, the petite petals flowers, the enamel dots and I coloured the white baker's twine with So Saffron ink here.

I cut up one of the cards and used an extra piece of Pool Party Cardstock (18 x 18.8cm) to create the box. I will say that it is a snug fit and the envelopes are on a little angle- so a set of 4 in the box is plenty. The dimensions are in the photo below if you would like to make your box the same size as this one. It is 3 cm deep. If you used two of the pockets joined together you would have quite a deep square box.
The kits are great but you can certainly play with all the elements and make them your own. have fun!
