CTC#158 Pick a number!

Welcome back- the weeks are really flying by now in the rush to the end of the year. I have a quick project today  - the set of cards created to meet a post office deadline.
The challenge this week is to CASE something from the page of your age- or an age you'd like to be. My acutal age didn't really have anything inspiring, so the ages I would like to revisit are my mid 30's- our youngest child was a terrible baby and I had virtually no proper sleep for 2 years so I don't have many clear memories of the other kids at this age. I'm sure if I coudl revisit those years I'd really enjoy it this time around!

Have you noticed the projects in the Catalogue with the Quick and Easy symbol? They are great go-to layouts, so I have CASED the one on page 37
  • a coloured card base
  • the same colour ink for stamping a line image over the corner of some DSP - or a memories and more card
  • a second mat in a contrasting colour
  • lay the mats offset on the coloured card base
  • a sentiment in a little flag with a bow tied adhered top left
I opted for Awesomely Artistic as the stamp - amazingly versatile in so many contexts.

Here's the layout on the bottom left - with the quick and easy logo - these are scattered throughout the Catalogue

I was able to whip up a set and used the gorgeous watercolour papers from the Painted Autumn DSP - I'm always on the lookout for layouts that use large pieces of DSP since I have quite a little stash......

One of the cards ended up with the glue on the wrong side and I stuck it down back to front- that's the curse of rushing- luckily the DSP is so gorgeous I was able to quickly save it- whew!
And of course I always stamp the envelope to finish the set.

Thanks for looking today, be sure and check out the rest of the team for some inspiration. And don't forget we love to see what you create too - just snap a pic and post it to our Facebook page.

Next on the hop this week is Judy- she always has such lovely detail in her projects.

Before me this week is Megan

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
