CASE-ing the Catalgoue!

Copy and Share Everything!

A night of scrapbooking and I have a scrap-over (not a hangover, a scrap-over!!). Today I had to crawl out of bed and go to work, just wishing I could sleep a little bit more!! It was a late night last night, but what a great night!! Luckily I don't have to work tomorrow and I can sleep in! My pages are still in progress and I hope to have them finished to show you tomorrow!

To case or not to case - that is the question!

I did finish another little project - a cute card using the Pocket Silhouette stamps. Have you ever had craft-block, where you just can't think what to do? Even if you have all the colours, stamps and papers imaginable - we all seem to have moments of craft-block! But with the trusty Stampin' Up! Idea & Catalogue - inspiration is never far away. For me especially! I'll show you what I mean!

Here's a picture from the new gorgeous SU Idea Book & Catalogue. This page was to show the accents and embellishments featured in the Stampin' Up! product range. Hopefully you'll notice the card I was inspired by!!

If you have the Idea Book & Catalogue pick it up and turn to page 125. Of course, if you don't have one, contact me and I will arrange with you to your very own as quick as we can!! I looked up the supplies list to see what was used, worked out what I did and didn't have and sat down to do it. No procrastinating over what to do for a change. I was able to sit down and enjoy creating!

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes

Papers: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip & Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, Bella Rose DSP

Inks: Stampin' Up! Classic Chocolate Chip & Old Olive

Other: Scalloped Edge & Oval Punch, vintage brads & Felt Fusion Flowers.

You will see that my sentiment "thanks so much" has been lightly stamped on the right hand corner of the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper (DSP). I only wanted a "lightly" coloured sentiment as I wanted the card to be about the papers and the focal image. To ensure that my sentiment was 'just right', I coloured the rubber directly with my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Writer and then lightly stamped onto a piece of scrap (just to make sure the stamp wasn't heavily loaded with ink) and then stamped directly on the card. While this is a thank you card, what I will write inside the card will be why I've sent it in the first place (if you know what I mean!!).

Tomorrow I'll post details and email upcoming events too! So good night - I'm having an early one!!
