This month’s theme: Casing the annual Catalogue - Stamp 'N' Hop

Welcome one and all to this months blog hop, this month we are casing the annual catalogue

What is casing you ask? 
Well for us crafters it is a term that we use when we copy some else's work either in full or in part while giving credit to the one who originally created it. This weekend when this goes live, those of us in New Zealand will be at OnStage and the rest of the blog creators will be on the way to a local OnStage or will already be in Orlando for the Live 3-day event.

So what is OnStage, and how do I get to go?
Well, OnStage is an event that Stampin' Up! does twice a year to show recognition to those of us that joined, moved ranks, or even were one of the top demonstrators, we also get a sneak peek at what is coming up in the world of Stampin' Up! in November its the new Spring/Summer and Sale a Bration items and gifts, and in April its the new annual Catty that does not go live until June.

Once you join Stampin' Up! you are allowed to attend once you have secured your ticket, this is an exciting time as we often have a race to see who is the first to get their ticket, some areas sell out fast while others take a while. Next April I am excited to say that it will be in our wonderful Auckland, New Zealand. So we all need to show our support and make sure that we book, this is also a wonderful time for an overseas trip and a chance to get to meet some of your Stampin' Up, heroes...

We also get to purchase a select array of products before the usual pre-order starts, remember the Share what you love DSP everyone was using, well that was released before the pre-order was released.

So we decided to case the annual catty this month before SAB and the new spring summer catty comes out, it also gives us all a breather from the holiday catty...

Over the last few days, I have looked at the catty, found some artwork that I just love and then went into my stash and while none were 100% copied, I took and then added a little flair

So the cards on the Left are from the Stampin' Up! annal catty and the right are my creations.

Thank you to all you wonderful ladies that have created your hops, all the links are below...
