CTC 240 Catalogue Inspiration – Baker’s Box

Published by under cards | Aug 04 2019

What’s CASE-ing The Catty? CASE stands for “Copy And Share Everything”. It means we use the ideas and inspiration from one project and apply them to another to create something altogether new. Each Sunday evening at 7pm AEST/8pm AEDT the CTC Crew kick off a new Challenge using the Stampin’ Up! catalogues as inspiration.

Everyday occasions & special occasions

This time on CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Challenge we turn to pages 12-71 of the Annual Catalogue for inspiration. This is the Everyday Occasions section. And yep, that’s a lot of pages! In fact there are dozens of project ideas within those pages to inspire and delight us.

The one that jumped out at me was on page 63 in the top right corner…

Family Party stamp set

We are celebrating a special birthday in our house today, so these cards definitely caught my eye.

My daughter is celebrating her sweet 16! Wow those years have flown by.

The Family Party stamp set is perfect for a special birthday because it has both numbers and stamps for family members like daughter, brother, mother, etc. In fact, it has a total of 38 stamps! (Check it out HERE).

I especially like the circle and belly-band look of the 60th birthday card above, and thought it would be fun to translate those elements onto a decorated Baker’s Box.

And this is what I ended up with…

Make your own shred

We gave our birthday girl a few little gifts, but what she really wanted was money to do some special shopping of her own.

To dress up the notes I put them in a stamped mini envelope and tucked it underneath home-made paper shred in the Baker’s Box.

I love that we can make our own shred in coordinating colours. Just slice thin strips of cardstock and scrunch them up, then place inside the box or gift packaging.

Flirty Flamingo and Pretty Peacock are the colours used in this project.

The Baker’s Boxes from Stampin’ Up! are awesome. They come in packs of 8 and are food safe, so perfect for gifting your home cooked treats as well as general gift packaging.

And I’m happy to say that my 16 year old daughter loved it! (The box and the money lol)

Would you like to have a go at this week’s challenge? To join in, you can either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combination or something similar, as inspiration for your own creation. Then simply take a photo of your project and upload it to the latest challenge album in the CASEing The Catty Challenge group on Facebook. Each challenge will end at 7pm (AEST) on Saturday before the next challenge is posted. We pick some winners each week, but most importantly it’s a fun way to get out of your creative comfort zone and try something new. 

Happy stamping,

    The box looks great! Anyone would be happy to get that. It is a very useable stamp set. I might need to bump it up my wish list!

    Simone your Baker’s Box is so gorgeous. Great tip to make your own colour co-ordinated shredded paper too.

    Oh my, how gorgeous! I love your box, and no wonder your daughter did too! The gingham on the diagonal is so pretty, and the layers over the top are perfect.

    I love how your belly band turned out, the solid colours and mixed fonts and dies really make it pop.
