CTC179 – Favourite Kit – Any Catalogue


It’s a focus on Kits over at Caseing The Catty this week. Welcome if you are starting here with me or if you have hopped over from Elizabeth.


Today I decided to go on a different path with my kit creation. I have used elements from the Lots of Happy card kit and create a scrap page. Take a look…

These photos are of my hubby and two kidlets…. What is special about this occasion is, it was Miss Madeline’s first time to the beach… first time on beach sand, first time in the salt water. She has been swimming before, in her regular lessons since 10 months old, but they are in a pool. Normally when swimming, it has been when we are camping along the mighty Murray River.

Here, I have sliced the Hexagon card base in half to create two shapes which I used to matt my photos. Then I used the coordinating pre-printed topper to create my sentiment.

The three hexagon shapes allowed me to create an interesting arrangement. The selfie photo of the hubby and I, happened to capture the kids playing in the background, which worked out well. So I framed them cutting the angles to match the hexagon shapes, and mounted them on Sahara Sand cardstock to match the hexagons. This was a nice lead in to the sentiment.

On the sentiment panel, I have lightly, colouring in the flowers with the Flirty Flamingo pencil, and lightly blending away the pencil strokes. Creating a banner in Pacific Point cardstock, I topped it with sentiment from the stamp set that came with the Card kit.

The 12×12” base paper I used is a new one, coming in the Tranquil Textures Designer Paper pack on June 1st. It’s a really lovely pack of textured patterns and uses the new Balmy Blue colour coming to the subtles range.

I framed the photo arrangement with some Powder Pink and Pacific Point cardstock and finished off the page with some swirls from the Swirly Scribbles thinlit dies set.

Next up in the hop is the ever amazing Julia Quinn.


After you’ve enjoyed the awesome hop with the team, I’m looking forward to seeing your CASE over in our challenge group. Be sure to load up your creation by 6pm next Sunday night, May 27th.


Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
