Home Decor is a wonderful thing... especially when you can create it yourself!!So at CASE-ing the Catty challenge site this week we are all about just that!! The Stampin' Up! Catty has loads of totally awesome ideas for home decor pages 94-101 are filled with them!! My card is from page 96, the thanks one on the pin board! I loved the heart, I think it's got LOADS of candy dots on it..... I went with a feather and a button instead, but the colours I LOVED!!!!

Just Add Ink and a sketch at Sketch n scrap!! I've found if you want to get some crafting done quickly that turning to challenges is a great way to start!!
I really like the stripes of the DSP (moonlight paper stack) with the stripes of Esther's dress and the way I've been able to have LOADS of fun with a black marker (the Project Life journal pen) with drawing and frames! After all she is dressing up as Mrs Squiggle!!
I even asked Esther to draw something and she decided to do Mr Squiggles HAT! CUTE!! I made the Mossy Meadow card stock look like a blackboard and she used the chalk pen to draw with!
The bunting is in the Calypso coral with some red sponged on it finished with a button.
That's about it. So with only 5 more days left of August at least I FINALLY got there!! I should probably start working on my September page now!! hee hee

CASE-ing the Catty this week is "kids" and would you believe it but at least half of "us" designers (without knowing) took our inspiration from a wonderful card in the catty on page 86!!! I gotta say it's a pretty super duper card, the one with the Robot and the star burst and those wonderful spots and chevron and star and red and curry and crumb cake..... WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THAT CARD!!!!
SO here is my take on this much sort after card.......
So come and join us at CASE-ing the Catty this week, what would be your take on page 86?? Or maybe there's another card you love in the kids section pages 82-93!!! Can't wait to see it!!

CASE-ing the catty time with some more creative inspiration to share with you!! This week we are all about BABY! How precious these little bundles are and what a perfect opportunity to make a sweet little baby card! I was needing a little boy card and so with page 78 to draw my CASE-ing from I came up with this......
I really LOVE the Zoo babies stamp set, it's perfect for not only babies but small children and even MEN!! (yep that rhino looks pretty "tough" for a guy card!) Team it up with a bunting (another one of my absolute FAV's!) some little letters (Simply Serif Mini Alphabet) and some pretend, I mean Faux frame and you have a card ready to frame if you so desire!!
I hope that you check out the other fabulous team designers and their handiwork's!! You'll be sure to want to make some cuteness for yourself too!!

Scrap and Music! It's been a while since I have and to make the challenge even more so I wanted to see if I could make a Project Life page within the sketch!! I just got some new DSP, the Park Lane pack and couldn't think of a better way to crack it then with this challenge!
The words of the song aren't really the ones you'd chose for a family shot but I plucked out "everyday" and that was my title.
I love the Day by Day Project life set, there are sooo many choices with it and that's how I got the months and days to continue the theme of "everyday!"

CASE-ing the Catty challenge blog! From pages 42-59 you will find LOADS of wonderful projects to case! I took my inspiration from page 58 with the fun cupcake toppers! I LOVE CUPCAKE TOPPERS!!!! LOOOOOVVVEEE!!!!
They really are one of my favourite gifts to make and little extras to add to any occasion!! (see other one's I've made HERE and HERE!)
As you can see I've CASED them straight from the catty but then I got to making some of my very own design using the same punch! I don't think I've EVER really used the cupcake builder punch for actual cupcakes BUT I've ALWAYS used it for CLOUDS!!! OHHH how I LOVE CLOUDS!!! So it seemed only right to show off the cupcake punch in it's true form to me and make some fun little CLOUD CUPCAKE TOPPERS!!
When making cupcake toppers it's best to go with either 6 or twelve
CASE-ing the Catty, be super great to see what wonderful things you come up with!!
