CTC 94: Candy Cane Lane

Published by under cards | Sep 04 2016

CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop


This week the CTC crew are turning to pages 4 – 6 of the NEW Holiday Catalogue, where we find the sweet Candy Cane Lane suite of products. 

[Check out the entire suite in my online store here.]

This suite has papers, markers, washi tape and more, in the colours of Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Real Red and White.

The project that caught my eye this week was the one on the bottom of page 4: the Quick & Easy seasonal tags.

I took a little bit of artistic license with my interpretation this week. I converted the Candy Cane Lane DSP tags to note cards and stepped them up by adding a few extra elements. I swapped the stamp set too.

And this is what I came up with:

The Layering Circle framelits came into their own in this project. I just adore those delicate scallop edges on some of the framelits, and the convenience of having so many different sizes in one pack.

To have a separate handheld punch in each of these sizes would cost hundreds of dollars! Thankfully we’ve now got the cost-effective and space-saving alternative of layering circle framelits.

The Candy Cane Lane papers feature cute little houses, delicate dots, little gingerbread, hearts, candy and more. A lovely Christmas paper if you want an alternative to the traditional reds and greens.



It’s now time to continue on to the hop. Next port of call is the lovely Rebecca. Click here to see what she has for us this week, or click on the buttons below.

    These are lovely, Simone. This DSP is so striking & you’ve used it perfectly to showcase just how awesome it is. Your set of cards would make a great gift.
