CASEing - A Way of Life

As a demo I receive a monthly magazine called Stampin' Success.  It's full of articles, ideas, and projects that are absolutely wonderful.  One of the articles this month was all about CASEing - Copy and Share Everything.  It talked about how you can copy someone else's project exactly or you can switch out elements to make it your own.

It listed some of the reasons why you might want to switch out elements rather making an exact copy.
  • You might want to use a different stamp set, or switch colors.
  • Maybe your'e creating a card for  for a different occasion, gender, or age.
  • You don't own all the products and can't order them in time.
  • You just want to put your own twist on the project and make it your own.
The example they used is to the right.  They took the top card from a past catalog and changed it up creating the card underneath. So for my downline meeting this month I created a make and take using the two examples for my inspiration.  I want both my downline and customers to feel comfortable about CASEing.  In the world of paper crafting it is a way of life!
Here's my CASEd version.   Everyone enjoyed the wow factor of this fun flower made with 5 layers of the Scallop Punch.  The color scheme is Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry.

The Little Leaves Sizzlits make the perfect leaves and it was fun embellishing them with the tiny Pearls.  The sentiment can be changed depending on your needs.  I love using the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set because there are so many words that can be used alone or in combination. It's one of my go to sentiment stamp sets.
