CAS(E) this Sketch #125

Happy Thursday and welcome to CTS #125 and an amazing sketch from N@Ali! I love the idea of this design and adore this beautiful SSS Smoke Gray card stock in combination with the blue inks. However, with a Monday holiday and an impromptu day trip, I'm feeling that this card still needs a little more attention! FYI, having your husband urging you to HURRY UP usually hampers creativity.

SO, please enjoy all the loveliness that the fabulous CAS(E) this Sketch DT has provided, and be sure to join in the fun!

Papertrey Ink May 2015 Blog Hop!

Blog Hop Inspiration
Oh, Papertrey Ink.... you had my attention as soon as I saw the beautiful rainbow of tiny blocks! I've die cut lots of little pieces from the Shakers & Sprinkles kit and fashioned a four inch square/white on white shaker card. 
There's SO much inspiration going on over at the PTI May Blog Hop that I'm rarin' to create more color-full projects (and know that I'll be pinning more than a few)!

CAS(E) this Sketch #124

Chrissy has come up with an amazing sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch #124! Clearly, the DT has been inspired - and we hope that you will feel the same way. SO, join in and create your own masterpiece!
I've used a technique ("confetti cluster stamping") that was new to me until highlighted by Papertrey Ink's MIM #205. A very pretty effect- using lots of stamps and inks!
P.S.- Please welcome our fabulous Guest Designer, PETRA!

Papertrey Ink MIM #212: Fussy Cutting Tips

Ashley has two beautiful cards, and some great tips, for PTI's MIM #212! Be sure to take a gander at some of the lovelies in the gallery! I've chosen lots of white and bright for this little 4" mini card.  And.... although there are dies for most of the flowers from the Bigger Blooms stamp set, I still find it faster, and easier, just to fussy cut 'em.

CAS(E) this Sketch #123

Happy Thursday! Here's a lover-ly sketch from Lesley for you to try. I'm going the nautical route with this one...... so lots of red, (rustic)white and blue. There's a fantastic variety from the DT - be sure to take a peek at their beautiful creations!
We hope that you'll join in the fun at CAS(E) this Sketch #123! Can't wait to see what you've created!
P.S.- A huge welcome to our Guest Designer, Marika!

CAS(E) this Sketch #122

Welcome to CTS #122! Leigh has designed a beautifully versatile sketch for us - so perfectly CAS! Clearly, I am still (always) in polka dot mode. And... in lieu of flowers, I've used a lovely MFT doily. Love that little strip of yellow - I'm thinking that I need to incorporate more of this happy color in my cards!

Please join in the fun and create something amazing for CAS(E) this Sketch #122 AND please welcome our amazing Guest Designer, Paul!!
