CTC#332 CASE Favourite Annual Catalogue Suite


The CASE-ing The Catty Crew are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from Australia & New Zealand who take inspiration weekly from the catalogues. The catalogues are a fantastic resource and we love to inspire you to seek inspiration there too.


Expressions In Ink Suite is my pick to CASE this time and you can check it out on pages 96-97 of the catalogue. The card on the front cover is the one I've CASEd, and simplified slightly, as it is one of the projects for a workshop where the participants are a little older and not too confident with stamping.

Some of them will get this alternative colour, so I've shared a very similar sample with a different orientation. Expressions In Ink has been very popular in every one of the markets Stampin' Up! is active in, with most markets having to wait on stock last month, including Australia. It's back in the warehouse now, and is flying off the shelves again.

Artistically Inked is the stamp set for this suite and it can be bundled with the Artistic Dies for a 10% discount.

We are in hard lockdown in Victoria - AGAIN! The group who are going to make these cards were to meet this week, but now it's difficult to say when it will be possible. I really hope the ladies like their projects, whenever they get to do them. 

This Step-Fold card was made for a friends birthday recently. It shows off another of the lovely die cut pieces in this suite, as well as a different sheet of the gorgeous paper.

With gold through the DSP it was logical to cut the leaves and numbers from Gold foil as well.

A Step-Fold Card is not as difficult to make as perhaps it looks, but a little tricky to explain.

The directions I've used were on a youtube video by Debra Harrison.

Plenty of room to write a message on the back of the card AND it folds down to fit a standard envelope.

Now it's your turn to CASE your favourite Annual Catalogue Suite. There is no need to use the same products, just CASE the design or colours and share what you've done here on the Facebook page

Next up this week is the wonderfully talented Julia Quinn

Your orders are very much appreciated, no matter how small or big, every little bit helps me to meet my minimums, and keep on creating. Hopefully you are inspired by some of the projects I share, and want to make your own. My online shop is open anytime and delivery by tracked Australia Post takes 5-10 days.


When your order reaches $90 you can pick a Level 1 freebie, and $180 earns you one Level 2 or two level 1.

Maybe you are wanting to stock up on crafting goodies? There has never been a better time than now. Select $235 worth of Stampin' Up! products from either catalogue and pay only $169, including shipping, catalogues and business supplies. Then you get to add a bundle which you choose yourself too and add to your starter kit.
With the most expensive bundle being worth $104.25, you are potentially able to order $339.25 worth of products and still pay $169 total.

I would love to have you in my team, most of the crew would consider themselves "shoppers with a discount" (discount starts at 20%) but you can take this business further if you wish. We have a private Facebook page where we share what we are making and get to know each other a little better. Even if you have been in my team (or someone else's) before and have dropped, there is still room for you now. Reach out if you want to know more and check this page for some more questions answered.
