What I Love SAB CTC#64

This week at CASE-ing The Catty we are sharing another SALE-A-Bration pick, whether it be a stamp set, one of the papers or even Project Life - they're all available for you to pick when you make an order of $90. If you happen to be mad for everything in the Occasions catalogue, you can pick an item for every $90 you order ($180 = 2 items, $270 = 3 items, $360 = 4 etc). If you get as high as that, maybe you should have a chat to me about joining up as a demonstrator, Stampin' Up!® welcomes and supports all types of demonstrators from the hobby demo buying crafting supplies at a discount, through to those making it a full time business. During SALE-A-Bration you get to choose $60 extra, choose $295 of any products from the Annual Catalogue and/or the Occasions Catalogue and pay only $169. Of course, if you prefer to be a customer, you can purchase your supplies through my online shop, or by contacting me, you just need to have a delivery address in Australia.

This week I had fun with What I Love, a two-step or three-step stamp in photopolymer. I CASE-d the tag on the gift bag and came up with a little pack of four Thank You notecards. Really, it's so easy to ink up the leaf and stamp a few times with a couple of different greens onto a square of Whisper White, mounted onto a slightly larger square of Wild Wasabi.

These notecards are available in packs of 20 in Whisper White and Crumbcake with matching envelopes, and they only cost $10.50! So handy to have on hand for when you're short of time. You'll find them on page 149 in the Australian  annual catalogue, or click on the image in the supply list below.
To make the packet they're contained in, I cut a Gift Card Envelope from Crumb Cake and made a belly band from Botanical Gardens DSP, with some additional trims from Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and Mini Treat Bag Thinlets. There are also a couple of stamped banners from Choose Happiness.

My good friend and fellow crew member on CASE-ing The Catty celebrated her birthday recently. While this isn't CASE-ing The Catty,  What I Love helped me create this cheerful bunch of flowers to celebrate with Kathryn. I selectively inked up a greeting from Party With Cake. It's actually the bit about cake I left off - [chuckling]. No..... it's not that Kathryn and I don't like cake, we just live too far apart!! Kathryn is in South Australia and I'm in Victoria. Perhaps we should make a date for cake when we meet up in Sydney in April, hey Kathryn!

I wanted to fit a greeting into the oval, something that makes a statement and this sentiment seemed to fit that description. I've used Blackberry Bliss, stamped off once in some images, giving a lighter shade. The other two are Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo.
 The smaller sentiment is from Sunburst Sayings which fits nicely on a 1¼" punched circle.

If you can't wait to get some of these goodies in your hands, and you'd like me to be your demonstrator, you can shop in my online store here. Australian buyers only. My phone number if you have any questions is 0417 500 681. If your order is less than $250, it would be great if you used the Hostess code 4G296SCD when you checkout.
Starting this year we are doing a monthly challenge. If you have been inspired by any of the projects in the catalogue or on the blog hop, feel free to share with the linky tool on this post. A winner will be chosen and announced on the first post of the following month.
