Welcome to this week's CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. Our inspiration this week comes from the How Sweet it is Suite in the 2019 Stampin' Up!® Occasions Catalogue.  You may have arrived here from seeing Rose's lovely project if you're hopping along already. If you started here, welcome and please make sure to visit all the Design Team's blogs, the next button at the end of this post will take you on your journey.
This week my inspiration came from the "Just for You" card below on page 22 of the Catalogue.
I love the little 3" x 3" cards and they make great gifts all packaged up in the mini pizza boxes!
I used the little butterfly from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and punched it out with the co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch to create my repeat pattern. The butterfly was stamped with Powder Pink on Whisper White Cardstock and adhered to Powder Pink Cardstock.

The flower and leaves stamps are from Forever Lovely and Happy Birthday is from Amazing Life and use Lovely Lipstick and Lemon Lime Twist Ink. Happy Birthday has been punched out using the Classic Label Punch and then I've trimmed the ends.
As I was enjoying this design I decided to make some more little cards! The background has been embossed with the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Behind the butterfly is a few circles of Rose Metallic Thread - it's so pretty!

Welcome to the Artisan Design Team's Sale-A-Bration Coordination Promotion Blog Hop! We are excited to share some exciting brand new products being released to co-ordinate perfectly with select Sale-a-Bration items.
If you're a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator you can order these items now to create projects to inspire your customers. And Customers, these will be available for purchase from 1-31 March - but be in quick you won't want to miss out!

The More Than Words Stamp Set has 17 fun and fabulous sentiments in fonts that will add pizzazz to any creation! 

There's a sentiment for everything from New Year's to Christmas!

I've used my Stamparatus to line up the bold "wishes" and then hand stamped the striped half "wishes" to line up with the bottom of it! Birthday is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and punched out using the Story Label Punch - such a cute punch! I punched a second label in Flirty Flamingo, cut it in half and layered it behind the sentiment.

A hole punched in the side and threaded with some Silver and Pool Party Baker's Twine (with the Pool Party twine carefully pulled out to use on a future project) is tied in a bow and co-ordinates with the Silver Glimmer Paper.
I love the spotted Flirty Flamingo paper from Brights 15.2 x 15.2 cm (6 x 6") Designer Series Paper collection and the Powder Pink Iridescent Sequins add a little more sparkle!
You'll definitely want to add the Story Punch Label to your Stampin' Up!® stash. It will add a pretty "punch" to any project! 
My second card has also been created with the help of the Stamparatus. It made lining up the sentiments so easy! After I'd stamped the sentiments I used the Subtle Embossing Folder and then adhered the Story Label Punch with Dimensionals.

The flowers and leaves are from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies and sit on some Silver Metallic Thread swirls. Once again a little bow and some sequin bring my card together.

Remember these products are for a limited time! Contact me now if you'd like to join up as a Demonstrator to have early access to these gorgeous new products or start that wish list now ready for 1 March ordering!
