Cookie-Cutter Tags CTC#107

It's Sunday night, welcome back to CASE-ing The Catty Blog Hop. I expect you already know that the idea of a bloghop is to go from blog to blog, seeing what each crafter has made with the challenge. Please make sure you do a full circuit so you miss out on nothing. You may have come from the lovely Julia, or started here with me, Rachel Palmieri, welcome.We have been challenged to choose our favourite punch from the Holiday Catalogue, and the Cookie-Cutter Punch is easily my fave and much used. Maybe it's yours too, but if not, I know my team mates have picked different ones for you to check out. And...if you'd like to share yours, there is a link at the end for you to link your blog.  
Teeny Tiny Sentiments provided the nice little Merry Christmas sentiment, while Go Ahead, tear it open is from Tin Of Tags. I used the second largest Stitched Oval Framelit to cut a piece of Warmth & Cheer designer series paperstack, one of those neat little 6" by 6" packs of paper. I'd have liked to have stitched the red tag top onto the Crumb Cake but time was running out, so I stapled. I understand there are still some staplers left in stock, and luckily they come with a lot of staples, because they won't be available much longer. The staples should be available at good stationers or office supplies though. 

Finally I'm making some headway with my Christmas preparations, so with the grandkids presents purchased, they need to be wrapped before anyone discovers them! The littlest guy spends Friday's with me and he has discovered gifts hidden in the wardrobe already, so I know I need to be careful with him, and another three are here on the weekend so I really do need to get these gifts wrapped and stowed. My delivery from Stampin' Up! arrived Friday morning so I set my helper to work making the wrapping paper, and while he slept in the afternoon the gifts were wrapped.

I used a new die that you will be able to purchase in January to make the top of the tags. Balloon Pop-up Thinlets pairs nicely with Balloon Adventures and because I attended Onstage in Brisbane, I was able to order my set extra-early. If you want it NOW, and you live in Australia, you could consider joining my team too. Demonstrators, even hobby demonstrators can order from the Occasions catalogue from December 1st AND earn SALE-A-Bration rewards at the same time. There is information on my blog under 'Join Stampin' Up!®' which will answer many questions for you, or get in touch if you want to talk about this opportunity.

Next you're heading over to Kathryn in South Australia

If you have a something to share with us at CASE-ing The Catty, this is the link to use.

Cheers, Rachel


  1. These tags are so ... cute, Rachel and so is your little helper. Yep, better wrap those pressies.

  2. Beautiful colourful Christmas Tags, I really like the detailed edge at the top with the staples. I like you have encouraged your grandson to help with your Christmas preparations.

  3. What an awesome idea using the stitched shape framelits with the DSP. I think I'd like to case your idea! Your projects are totally adorable ( just like your little man there).

  4. Definitely my favourite and I love those tags! Though, your grandie might just steal the show - so cute!!! Kelly x

  5. Great tags Rachel- have been keen to use that tag top die but running out of time. Yours look great. gorgeous little helper!
