Tuesday’s Tip ~ Casing the Catalog

Hi Friends,

Welcome back! Today’s Tuesday’s tip is all about finding your mojo. We all come to a point when we want to get crafty but draw a blank. Absolutely no creative juices flowing. So this is when “Casing” is helpful. In today’s post I am casing a tag I saw in the current Holiday Catalog. Lets take a look at it together…

This tag can be located in the bottom left hand corner of page 8 in your holiday catalog. It is cute but I don’t make many tags so I decided to use it as my mojo and create a card using this idea. Here is what I came up with…

CASE = Copy and Share Everything. For those in the paper crafting world it is a well known phrase. As you can see I almost cased it exactly but did make it larger (Card Size) and I added a few dies from the annual and holiday catalogs. I just love how it turned out don’t you?

Don’t forget the inside of your card… and of course the envelopes too…. This little deer is just perfect for both!

One last look… All the items are pictured below…Beware some of these items are on the “Low Inventory List” so if you already know you are loving these items grab them while you can. If your order is under $150 please consider using my hostess code for the month. It is HTFRSXSD and can be entered as you are checking out.

Happy Creating! Melanie

Simple Midweek Project ~ Heartfelt Blooms


Welcome back to a Clean and Simple (CAS) Wednesday. Today’s project it so simple in yet it looks so difficult to create.

This stamp set is a new style from Stampin’ Up!® that gives all the depth of light and shadows all with one press of the stamp. The girls at this month’s card class HAD to have this set. This Heartfelt Blooms stamp set is FREE with a $50+ (expires March 31st) Here is the full stamps set below.

For the sentiment I used “Thinking of You” also from the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set. I used the “Tailored Tag Punch” and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. All the  sentiments from this FREE stamp set fit perfectly in this punch. I also added a few coordinating Tutti Fruiti Adhesive Backed Sequins.

Here is a quick pic of the inside of the card. I just love how beautiful this stamp is and how finished the card feels when I add a little coordinating stamping on the inside.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s midweek post. Check back Friday for a peek of my personal favorite FREE item from this years Sale A Bration Sale. You will not want to miss Friday’s post.
