Celebrating Cath + Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

It makes my heart happy when good things happen to good people. I've known Cath Edvalson for many, many years while working with Paper Crafts Magazine & she's truly one of the best. I am so excited today to be able to celebrate her & showcase some of her new products!

Please join me in this blog hop to see many more inspirational posts featuring Cath's beautiful designs. If you started from the beginning (the Technique Tuesday blog) then you should have arrived here from Laura Bassen's blog. Please read on to find out how you can win an awesome prize pack of your own!

Cath makes the most beautiful paper cuts & those designs inspired her new collection of stamps & metal dies. While these products will definitely be perfect to use on handmade cards & layouts... I've decided to go a different route. I've been obsessed with fabric lately & have been busy working on new tote bags & other products for my Etsy shop.

My recent tote bag was just crying out for some decorative details & Cath's metal dies allowed me to do just that.  I used her new Garden Flowers & Garden Leaves dies along with fabric to dress up my design.  I found that it's best to iron Heat'n Bond to your fabric & then die cut your elements. This allows you to create fabric pieces that can easily be ironed onto your project for a permanent bond.
 I flipped the leaf die for the second die cut to create a mirrored image.
 These dies cut so precisely & I love how my bag embellishment coordinates perfectly with the inside lining.
 I added a coordinating button & made a tag using the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set.
You can find the "Catherine Tote Bag" in my Etsy shop!
Technique Tuesday is going to give away three prizes!!! One person will win a package consisting of all 5 of Cath's new products. Technique Tuesday will also give away two $25 gift certificates.
The three winners will be chosen at random from all the comments left during the hop on all the blog stops. To be eligible to win, blog hoppers need to just leave a comment any of the blog hop stops. The more comments they leave during the hop,  the more chances they have to win.
You have through midnight PST on Sept. 16th, 2015, to leave comments. The three winners will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on Sept. 18th, 2015. *I approve all comments before they'll show up on my blog, so don't be alarmed if your comment doesn't show up right away.

From here, hop over to Lisa Adametz' blog!
