12 Kits Guest Designer-January 2014!

I was beyond excited to learn that I would be the 12 Kits of Occasions guest designer for January! Sharron Gregory put together an amazing kit with an "I Think I Love You" theme (the Partridge Family song is running through my head!) - perfect for your Valentine sweetie or any loved one. The kit was chock full of so many love-ly elements, and I have many other cards/projects in the works on my messy craft desk! I can't wait to see all of the other happy heart creations!

CAS(E) this Sketch #62

Hi all! I am back with a new sketch, CTS #62, by the ever-so-lovely Chrissy Larson! AND….. joining us this week at CAS(E) this Sketch as guest designer is the Amy Kolling from Stamp-n-Paradise (one of my very favorite blogs to visit for oodles of inspiration)!
I used a few bits from some of my newest acquisitions- the SSS monthly kit and Sweet Stamp Shop (just THE cutest stamps ever)!
We hope that you'll join in the fun!

CAS(E) this Sketch #60

It's bright and sunny, if a bit chilly, here in NY.  I so hope that you'll join in and make something bee-u-ti-ful for CTS #60..... a sketch by Sam Simpson! AND a warm welcome to our guest designer, the talented Paul Browning!

This card ended up being way less CAS than I'd hoped (deemed "too busy" by my graphic design major daughter)... guess my mind was goin' in too many directions at once! But I love any florals so will definitely give this sketch another, more simple, go.

CAS(E) this Sketch #59

Welcome 2014! And welcome to CAS(E) this Sketch #59! Hope that everyone had a lovely holiday..... full of family, fun, food, napping, lots of movies, and a bit of creative time. Yes, that is my kinda holiday. Of course, I did not make much headway in cleaning up the craft area (too busy making more tags and preparing for the family party!). However, once the two college kids return to school,  I will really get down to business!

We hope that you'll join us in creating for our first challenge of the New Year... a first sketch for CTS by the talented Leigh Penner!

I took quite a few liberties with this sketch (i.e. no feathers, flipped around, etc.). I stamped with CAS-ual Fridays "Beanstalks" and colored with my (clearly) infrequently used Copics!
