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?

This stamp from the See a Silhouette Suite bundle brings back so many memories. When I was a little girl, I could spend hours on the swing set. I remember my sister and I swinging so high that the legs of our swing set lifted right up off the ground and Daddy had to anchor it down in case we pulled it over. My grandmother told us stories of how, as a girl, she had swung so high, she'd gone clear around the top of the swing set. Clearly questionable, but oh did we believe and try to emulate her! I remember swinging at the park the day after high school graduation as a friend of mine and I contemplated the scary new rode ahead. And I'll never forget the look on my 1st graders eyes when I raced them to the swing at recess on the first warm day of spring. "Miss Michelle...you can swing?" It was pure joy to to play with them...plus, from that vantage point I could keep an eye on my mischievous 3rd grade boys, too.
The pure innocence in this simple stamp plus the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper, full of rich, warm colors, evokes feelings of summertime and sunshine. Those carefree days we so long to capture even today. If I could tell my younger self just one thing, it would be to " Go confidently in the direction of your dreams" - and never lose the joy that you had swinging on the swings.

Today is day 4 of my Bags & Boxes series. So cute...so delightful..and so easy to make. Today uses a 6" x 6" piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper, and it's surprisingly large for such a small piece of paper. Both pieces are non-directional, making it almost foolproof. You don't have to worry about whether or not your going to have upside down images when you assemble your treat bag.

I couldn't end my week of OnStage without showing you my final swap. This one was for my Stamping Bee team swap at dinner on Friday night. We had so much fun! We invited the Craftastics team to join us and 20 of us went to dinner at Pike's Old Fashioned Soda Shop. We had so much fun...wish you could have been there with us!
My card today uses the Tropcial Chic Stamp Set. Since the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper is retiring, I chose to stamp the background using Pear Pizazz, Bermuda Bay, and Highland Heather instead of using the paper.
Speaking of retiring paper...ALL the Designer Series Paper is retiring this year. Take a look and see which one's you need before they're all gone.

The Snowflake Showcase is truly lovely. I featured it in my blog all last week, and it's now available for customers, through November 30th, or while supplies last. I know you're going to love it not only for the holidays, but for its versatility long after the snow is gone.
There are 2 stamp sets, a set of 20 dies, lovely snowflake trinkets, and beautiful, soft, velvet paper. But don't wait...once it's gone, it's gone!
