Happy CASE-ing Tuesday! It's a glorious morning...Life is Grand, in fact! My dogs have not slept well in weeks, which means, I haven't slept well in weeks! And last night, they slept for 7 full hours! All I know is I haven't slept that well since the Lad went back to the mountains after Christmas. And boy did I need it!
I've spent the last few days deep in preparation for this Sunday's Sweet & Simple Class, as well as for my Stamping Bee Team Meeting. It's going to a packed house, too, for both events. And we have a special guest coming from the Stampin' Up! home office. It's going to be such a great day and I've worked really hard to make the cards extra special.
I've been using the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper for both events. If you had asked me at November's Onstage what I thought of this paper, I would have told you I probably wouldn't use much of it. The patterns are bold and the colors too bright for me. But you know what? It's my GO TO designer series paper now. It's a far cry from my usual softer, more subtle colors, but I like it! It it was the first thing I grabbed for this week's #CaseingTuesday185 Challenge. Add a splash of color and a sentiment from the Life is Grand Stamp Set and you've got a WOW card that's a perfect example of #SimpleStamping.

Life is found in the details...the delightful - and sometimes not-so-delightful details. And in today's CASE-ing Tuesday Card, the details lie in those tiny details such as the Faceted Dots which come in 3 sizes and 4 colors - Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, and Grapefruit Grove. These match the colors found in the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More Card Pack. All of these will be available on June 2nd in the new 2018 Catalog.
This new pack of Memories and More cards are so pretty. I've designed over 12 cards with them in the last few weeks and am offering a 10-card class at my June 2nd Super Saturday celebration. I think everyone is going to be super pleased with how prettily they come together.

I'm so excited. I've wanted to use this Memories and More card since I first got the Perfect Days card pack last year. It's so pretty and vibrant. Oh, Emerald Envy...why are you retiring???
If you caught my Facebook Live on Sunday night, you'll know that Daisies and paper hold very special memories for me. Ok, so it was wall paper, but that just proves, my obsession with pretty paper goes back to when I was a very little girl!
When I first saw this week's CASE-ing Tuesday card, I knew right away that I had to use. Paired with the acetate from the Perfect Days card pack, and it made a very pretty card. And yellow glitter enamel dots really made the center of those daisies just pop!
Why don't you give this week's challenge a try? Create a card based on this week's sketch and post it on our CASE-ing Challenge Facebook page. I can't wait to see what you create!

Today, I grabbed the pack of Petal Passion Memories and More cards that I've been 'saving' for that just right occasion. It's been on the top of my crafting 'to do list' for months and I suddenly realized...it's RETIRING!!! OH NO!!! Time to use it up before it's too late.
The Memories and More Card Packs are perfect for making Sweet & Simple cards in no time at all. All you need are a few card bases and a few measurements. Are you ready? Let's get crafty!
Today, I'm just going to give you basic card measurements so you can Pin them or save them so you can refer to them later. Happy Stamping!
The larger 6" x 4" Memories and More cards need to be cut down to 5" x 3 3/4". Don't be afraid to cut some of the design off! It's really ok and you'll be glad you did.
