CTC97 Favourite Holiday bundle

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty Sunday night blogshop where we use a section of the Catalogue to inspire this weeks projects. Designers can take a layout, a colour combination, or any element as the starting point to create something new. We invite you to tour around the hop and to join in -after all the Catalogue has so many beautiful samples to inspire us all. If you get lost you'll find the full crew here.  
If you are hoping along you may have come from Judy, so welcome. If you are starting here be sure and hop all the way around.

Well if you have been following my blog lately you'll know that I'm quite taken with the Here's to Cheers bundle!! the wine bottle tags Cheerful Tags Frameleits and matching stampset are super cute and easy to use. 
there's some great images on page 38 and I used them as a starting point.

This cute set is for a birthday present, and I cut the silver swirl panel in half and simply spread it a little wider under the navy circle. For the hanging tag I stamped in pink, clear embossed over this and stamped a second image and cut out the Celebrate in navy and layered it up on top. I used my sponge brayer and coloured the gorgeous textured white card with Flirty Flamingo and cut a strip to cover the label.

For the box I made a new lid with the Fancy Frost Specialty Design Series Paper. I used less colour on this piece. I used the same wine bottle tag and CASE'd the wrapping on page 38. It was dead easy! 
The pink heart is from the Oh happy day set.

And just because I ordered the Cucumber Crush Mini striped ribbon for the first time and it arrived this week I thought I'd whip one up in green and copper too! This ribbon is gorgeous, i was worried that it would be too bright but it's perfect. 
A little tip here - I punched 2 mini holes in the tag and tied the pinecone on to the card before I added the white sentiment and before I threaded the ribbon through. I find a length of ribbon about 40cm works best.

Next on the hop is Kathryn. She's bound to have something amazing!

Don't forget we love to see what you create too, and we hold a monthly challenge where you can share with us too.
