# Catty Challenges

Casing the Catty #21

 This week is about casing from the Everyday section in the Occasions catalog for Casing the Catty. I still am only one handed and am now in a dynamic splint to get my cut tendons moving. I have been doing simple crafting  (okay not as complex as I normally do).  I really liked the Crazy about You stamp set when I first saw it. I liked that I could build sayings and not just use it for cards. 

When I was going through the catalog, I was looking for simple to CASE and the little gift bag on page 30 (US) really struck me as one I could do. I do think I need the Bouquet die so once my hand is better, I will be getting that because I would love to make all sorts of flowers.

I used my all time favorite framelit- the banner one to cut out from the Adventure Bound dsp- this pack is awesome. I than cut out one from Whisper white and stamped the Happy Birthday- I was thinking more masculine. I stuck it all on by stapling it (just used my regular old one) and using the string from the Hello Life kit, had my daughter tie a bow. 

Who won't love getting a gift in this super simple gift bag. This set seems like I could use it for so much. I would have liked to layered the flowers and leaves on there as well but I can't cut that easy right now. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That's a perfect gift bag! Simple and pretty. Great idea! :)

  2. Well done on your delightful "birthday bag", it must be frustrating for you with just one good hand.

  3. What a great CASE. Love your little gift bag.

  4. Your gift bag is very sweet with the layered banners, twine bow & cute flower. A lovely way to present a gift!
    Hope the splint helps speed your recovery, Becky. :)
