Clean lines and colorblocking
That’s the name of the game for my latest CASE. I’ve seen a few variations of this design out on social channels, so, you could say that it’s a bit of a trend.

Fashion trends are a huge source of inspiration for the craft world.
You’ll see similar color combinations, textures and patterns pop up in stamp sets, stencils, tools, dies, etc.

I use Social Media to find trends…
It’s easy to get sucked into the vortex of Pinterest or Instagram. That’s why I use it for a very targeted reason – to find current trends!

What do you do with all that “inspiration” you save?
Collecting images on Pinterest is all fine and dandy, but what do you do with it all? Do you have a system for gathering what you like about the design and using it for your own projects?

What influences you to buy a stamp set?
As I was working on today’s CASE, the question came to mind. I think it’s two things for me. First, I’m influenced by the samples provided on the product page.

Isn’t it funny how “kids these days” (I can’t believe I’m saying that!) think of so many things as “vintage”? VHS tapes, phones with cords, mix tapes, and, of course, SNAIL mail!

Hummingbirds – they’re on trend!

Happy Hump Day! Got time for a quick CASE?
Oooh! I’m so in love with my take on today’s Inspiration CASE! I’ve noticed that I’m not so into patterned paper anymore. Actually, I don’t think I ever was.

Let’s CASE this card…  It’ll be easy!

Everyone can fussy cut this project! Today I’m CASE-ing a new stamp set from Altenew – Geometric Landscape. I can envision a lot of amazing cards with this set. But, I thought I’d start with a design that was inspired by one of the samples.

It’s time to take CASE-ing to the next level!
I shared last time that CASE-ing a design doesn’t always mean that it needs to be copied exactly. Sometimes you just want to try your hand at recreating something, and sometimes you’re just inspired
