Today's #CASEing Tuesday! And surprise! I combined today's card and my week of boxes and bags and brought you a fold-over card holder. While it's technically not a box or a bag, it's perfect for holding cards to give as gifts. All the directions for the very quick and simple project can be found in my video below.
Today's project also features the newRococo Rose and Seaside Spray In Colors. I love how well these two colors go together. And do you see that little strip of ribbon behind the circle? I cut that scalloped lace strip of the bigger piece of Scalloped Linen Ribbon. Now, it's like getting two spools of ribbon in one!
Want to play along with the #CaseingTuesday crew? Use the sketch to plan out your card. You can change a lot, a little, or make the card just as it is in the catalog. Then post it to the Facebook thread. We can’t wait to see your cards. You can use the following hashtag if you post your card elsewhere on Facebook or Social Medial. #CASEingTuesday204.

Hey! How did it get to be Monday again? Last weekend just FLEW by! And you know what? The housecleaning fairy forgot to stop by like she promised. But, I guess it's ok...because I spent the weekend designing July's classes and clubs for YOU! I have to say...they're pretty amazing! Watch for more details coming very soon!
This week, it's all about Bags and Boxes! The best way to demonstrate bags and boxes is to actually video them for you. That's right...it's going to be be a FULL WEEK of videos! Sound like fun? Let's get started. Ready? Set. CRAFT!
Brights Designer Series Paper, 6" x 6" Paper
Stay tuned for July's fun projects. You won't want to miss them!
It felt so good to be back stamping with you this morning on Crafty Saturday! I've missed you!
I received the Looking Up all inclusive card kit this week and I just had to share it with you. Aren't these cards great? I talk about taking my kits and Paper Pumpkins along with me when I travel. We all know that even on vacation we need a little down or "me" time and this kit would be perfect for tucking in a bag or packing in the camper.
Where are you going this summer? Are you taking your stamping along with you?
And I would stamp cards in a boat.
And I would stamp cards with a goat...
And I will stamp cards in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so fun, so fun, you see!
So I will stamp them in a box.
And I will stamp them with a fox.
And I will stamp them in a house.
And I will stamp them with a mouse.
And I will stamp them here and there.
Say! I will stamp cards anywhere!
I do so like stamping every day
Grab a kit! Come on, let’s play!
(with apologies to Dr. Seuss!)

Crafty Saturday is Back!
I've had classes the last two weeks, but Crafty Saturday returns this week at 9 am over on my Facebook Page. I wonder what we're going to make. Got any ideas???
Have I told you how beautiful the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Cards are? Wait...yeah...I know I have. Well...I took one of those beautiful cards today, cut it down to size, and used the back side. I know, I know...shocking! But, I love the patterns on the reverse just as much as I like the pretty floral patterns on the front. Luckily, Stampin' Up! thought of this - they think of everything, don't they - and they gave us TWO of each card. Now, some would say it's in case you make a mistake and need another card. I prefer to think positively, and see it as an opportunity to create twice as much. What do you think?
But don't just take my word about how pretty the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Cards are. Let me show you instead.
And you must think they're beautiful as well because, well...the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Cards are currently on back order. But they'll be back in stock around July 7. So, add them to your wish list and be sure to tell them, Michelle sent you!
Base: Whisper White Thick Cardstock, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
