CTC#122 - Falling in Love

Welcome back - it's good to be back after a few weeks away from my craft desk busy with family and work. I have missed being creative! So I couldn't possibly miss out on this week's Post - CASEing projects from pages 50-54 of the catalogue.
I do like the Falling In Love Suite but I am a bit of a fan of gift wrapping so I couldn't go past all the cute packages on page 54, and I am also in love with the Perfect Mix set so I have combined the 2 to wrap some beautiful mini Melting Moments (have to admit I didn't bake these but they are yummy!) My kitchen has a lot of blue and white so it seemed perfect to use the Floral Boutique DSP for this set of projects.


As well as the packing for the sweets on the top left I love the folder envelope card like the Best Guy Ever sample on the bottom left. 

The Envelope Foldover card is one that I have done before. You take a 6 x 6 piece of DSP and your first mark to Punch and Score is 2 5/8".  The belly band is made from a strip of DSP 11/4" wide and decorated with any choice of sentiment, ribbon, embellishment etc.

They are quite fun to make - and definitely fun to open.

If you like this style of card you can see more samples like that here.

While I had all the kitchen pieces out on my desk I thought the elements also suited the challenge at GDP#080 this week to CASE the designer Louise Sharp, so I made a full card to match.

Don't forget we love to see your creations too - share them with us on our Facebook page

Next this week is the amazing Kelly - not sure where she gets her energy from but as well as being uber creative she's a powerhouse! 

Befor me this week is Mel

You can find the full crew here

Hope you find some time to be creative this week too,
Back to the desk for me - I have swaps to finish! So excited for Onstage - however Cyclone Debbie and the resulting flooding are going to severely interfere with my travel plans as the airport is closed..... no cyclone is going to keep me away ! 

Thanks for looking, and remember,
