Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty Challenges (CTC) and Design Team Call

Hi everyone. I'm excited to share a brand new challenge blog with you called CASE-ing the Catty (CTC) that will be officially launched on Friday 18th July at 7:00pm (AEST).

CASE - The acronym stands for COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING. The latest Stampin' Up! ® Catalogue certainly encourages crafters to do just that as it is jam packed with amazing, inspirational projects.

The idea started when I was making the little journal that you see pictured below, in preparation for a Team Catalogue Launch -


I just LOVE CASEing ideas from the Stampin' Up! ® Catalogue to get my creative juices flowing.  It's such a great way to encourage 'newbies' to have a go at stamping and paper crafting, SU style.  With this in mind and wondering how I would structure some regular SU classes and workshops, I decided I would set myself a goal over the next twelve months to go through the latest Inspire, Create, Share Catalogue and use some of the featured projects as inspiration. Then I thought ... "Why not ask some friends to join me in the journey" and CTC Challenges was created.

The idea is to feature a section of the catalogue each week, for example, Gift and Packaging, then Memory Keeping and so on, using the projects in the catty as inspiration.  You can directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combo, embellishment, just to name a few examples, as a springboard for your own creations. 

To provide additional inspiration for the challenges, I'm putting the call out for some DT Members.  So here's your invitation to join in on the fun -


I'm looking for paper crafters -
  • who are passionate about using and promoting Stampin' Up! ® products and can commit to submitting a weekly project two days before the challenge goes live
  • who regularly post photos of their creations to a personal blog or web site
  • who love to inspire others
  • who can 'think outside the square' and be creative with their CASE projects
If you are interested in joining CTC Challenges, please email me at
before Sunday 13th July, telling me why you would love to join and a link to your blog or web site.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrator
