Case the catalogue July!

It's case the catalogue July... Yep it's official, when in doubt of what to stamp, create, or make and you have a gorgeous new catalogue at hand, there's no excuse not to copy and share some of the designer-delicious creativity.
One of my favourite ways to get started is to choose a number between 10 and 200 and open the catalogue page to that number and copy one of the card ideas on that page.
Here's page 50, the dove in black and pale blue grabs my attention.
I have the Serene Scenery patterned paper pack with the patterned wood design, bakers twine and a silver doily. That's a pretty good start.
Instead of the dove image, which I don't have, I'm thinking feathers...
"Feather together" comes out in blue and pink and purple, a few scraps of card from my table.
You can copy it exactly or ad lib with what supplies you have.
Feeling confident now, loving the Thinking of you sentiment from Feather together, I Turn to page 108..
 When you can't decide which card to copy first, why not combine the background of one and the layout of the other? 
I've used crumb cake ink on crumb cake cardstock then cut a rectangle of white for my feathers as per the bottom left pool party card. Really simple and effective.
What will you case (copy and share) from the catalogue? 
Still not sure where to start? Hmm front page is another inspiring place to start -
Now you're feeling inspired, go ahead, copy and share something this week...
