CTC 180: Retiring Favourites – and a sneak peek (Pick a Pennant)

Welcome back to another CASEing The Catty Sunday blog hop and challenge. With only a few days remaining for the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue, we are farewelling our favourite retiring project.

This is a great opportunity to have one last look at all the ideas and gorgeous samples that have inspired us over the past year.

I can’t go past a cute little bag or box, so this little gem on page 52 jumped out at me.

 

Make a splash - pinch box

And this is where it took me:

Mini paper pinch box featuring Pick a Pennant stamp set by Stampin' Up! (available from 1st June 2018)

 

This started off as 5 ½ ” x 8″ panel of Naturally Eclectic designer series paper, scored on the long side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″. The short side was scored at 3 1/5″. I have really loved this paper, and will be sad that it’s not available after the end of May. Better stock up now!

 

Pick a Pennant Card and gift box set

The card on page 52 featured the cute Message in a Bottle stamp set, which is also retiring in just a few days (along with hundreds of other products -> check them out here. But in my version today I paired the paper with a brand new stamp set, called Pick a Pennant. I got this set early, but you’ll be able to order yours from 1st June 2018. This set includes lots of letters that can be used to create personalised pennants and banners. I used just three of those letters to spell out the name ZOE. The two piece flowers and other elements make this an incredibly versatile stamp set… not just your average mini alphabet set.

The papers inspired me to finish the set with a little card (Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes, page 19 of the Occasions Catalogue or check them out here).

I adhered matching paper to the envelope flap, to finish off the ensemble.

    I can’t go past a cute little bag or box either Simone. The matching card and envelope are so cute, I love them all.

    So great to see you back hopping with the crew! Awesome projects here – love a coordinating package and card. Was it Zoe’s birthday?!

    Oh Simone … so cute; such an adorable set. I had overlooked that little gift bag in the catty.
