Mooooove over Monday, it's #CASEingTuesday! I love Tuesdays because all the design work is done for me. I just have to CASE (copy and share everything) the design right out of the catalog! I mean, why not? We oooh and ahhhh over the designs in there. Why not use the designs that are already done to expand our repertoire, and in my case, skills. Take today's card, for example...I was up at 6:30 am designing this (so maybe I procrastinate just a little!), and I had a heck of a time figuring out how to get the diagonal cut on the 4" square. Did I mention I was crafting PRE coffee??? That's so dangerous. Anyway...a couple sips of coffee and a single cut on my trimmer later and voila! Fun diagonal.
Have I mentioned that I'm Over the Moon for this stamp set? (Ok, maybe too much coffee this morning???) It's been sitting on my shelf for months, and I finally pulled it down this weekend. I LOVE IT! Totally adorable. After making my first card with it Saturday morning, I decided I'd use it for my August Sweet & Simple Class! And pairing it up with the dots from the Love What You Do stamp set makes it even cuter.
Want to play along with the CASE-ing Tuesday?
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.

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???
I'm stamping at the beach this week! I just love working from home! As long as there's wifi and I have space to craft, I'm a happy girl. Even the dogs are here, enjoying all the attention from my young niece and nephew.
I've brought a few Paper Pumpkin Kits I've been saving so I can craft with E & B. I wonder if they'll sit still long enough to help!
When I get home, I've got lots of prep to do for May's Card Club, as well as my big super Saturday & BOGO. But for now, I'm just going to enjoy the fresh sea air and make some memories with my family!
Click on the link to learn more. All classes are available In Person or To Go!
Layers, layers everywhere. This card has so many layers it's hard to know where to begin. The Petal Palette stamp set is one of my all time favorites. And I don't even like birds! I think it's the way the layers work together without being fussy. You don't have to cut a lot of any one piece, either. As you e. And what are those circles in the background? Surprise! The Swirly Scribbles dies make a guess appearance here, too.
Powder Pink is retiring...in fact, ALL 2017-2019 InColors are retiring. When? On Monday, April 15th. If I were you, I'd stock up on all InColor inks, re-inkers, paper, ribbon, etc before Monday. Historically, all InColors sell out almost immediately. And once they're gone, they're gone.
