Sneak Peek Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue Birthday Card

Today I'm sharing another Card kit we were gifted with at On Stage in Birmingham.

This card kit was in a beautiful box which was on our tables.  There was also a free stamp set included, pens, notepads, and a bag!

Here's the card kit we were gifted.

This kit uses the Narrow cards and envelopes.

I changed it up a tiny bit.

I saved all my kits to make at home, here is a short video.

Men's Gift Box Sneak Peek

So, I went to the Stampin' Up! Onstage in Birmingham earlier this month, had a great time.  While there we are given kits to make.  The kits are all using new product from the Occasions Catalogue, so we get a chance to play with new stamps, dies and paper!

This time I did the necessary stamping and die cutting at the event, so I could put the kits together at home.

How great is this stamp set, other items available in this suite are w dies, designer series paper, ribbon and some cute spanner embellishments.  If you go to On Stage you're  able to do a pre-order, this was one of the sets I loved, so I added it to my growing list!

I've made a quick video showing how I put this box together.

If you would like a copy of the new Catalogue please send me an 
e-mail, or leave a comment and I will pop one in the post.  You can start ordering on 3rd January 2019.

Stamp N Hop Casing the Catalogue

Welcome to the Stamp N Hop Blog Hop, you may of joined me from Anastasia's post or maybe you started here!  You're very welcome however you arrived.

This month with Stamp N Hop we are casing the Annual  Catalogue.

To CASE is great for when you're stuck for an idea, you know you want some crafting time but nothings popping into your mind!

C A S E  Copy and share everything.

Look at some cards in the catalogue or on Pinterest and  case them
It's meant to work as inspiration, so you may copy the layout, the colour, the technique.  Use a different stamp set, sentiment, ribbon or DSP.   Your card will look different because your be changing it up.  If you copy exactly you should name the persone you cased as the designer.

I've cased the following card, keeping it as a Christmas card!

I've used the same colour, Garden Green and layout but a different embossing folder, stamp set, ribbon and emblishment.

Peaceful Noel has been used just for the sentiment.

I've never cased the catalogue before but I really enjoyed it and it made me really look at the cards and projects in the catalogue.

Hope you liked this Christmas card why not try casing a card in the catalogue yourself?

Don't forget to hop along with everyone's projects.  Click on the arrow to hop to Sue's casing project.
