CTC#159 CASEing the Christmas Catalogue

Last CASEing the Catty hop for the year- boy that's been a busy year.
I'm finishing with a quick and easy layout. I've been actively looking for cards in the catalogues that use up DSP, so this week's layout fits that criteria for me.
I am also using one of the new sets which will be available from January 3 - unless you are a demonstrator - or become one before Jan 3 - in which case you can order it now.

I think this set is going to be hugely popular- it's fun, whimsical, punchy and it doesn't require too much colouring! And it has a brilliant sentiment for a belated card - which I seem to need quite often. I've used it today.

 And here's the layout that inspried me on page 47.

  • A large circle with some simple stamping set to the right of the card
  • a large piece of DSP set to the right edge of the card
  • some coloured ribbon wrapped around under the circle featurand tied as a bow
  • a sentiment stamped in the same colour and layered up on the circle
very Easy , and while my colouring isn't great I am enjoying using the blends more and more.


There's such a lot of inspiration in the catalogue  and from all the design team members. I hope you are able to get time to create something too- and we'd love to see it. Pop a photo on our Facebook page.

Next on the hop this week is Bec- she's done such a fabulous job this year keeping us all on track.

Before me this week is Julia

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

cheers, Liz


  1. I think your colouring looks lovely and natural. Great case and I love cards that use up lots of DSP too. Thankyou for the awesome inspiration!

  2. Great choice of card to CASE Liz lol. I love the Wood Textures DSP behind your bird.
