Baby We've Grown

Our Catalogues are full of inspirational project samples for cards, bags, boxes and home decor items. 

Have you ever purchased products ... a stamp set for instance ... and been stuck with what to do with it once you get it home? This happens to us all from time to time :o)

One of the easiest things to do to get your Mojo back on track is to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) a design from the catalogue. You could copy it exactly if you already own the products being used. You may find that as you put your project together, you 'tweak' it - just changing something small. Or you could find that your project turns out nothing like the original item once you are done!

Alternatively you may decide to copy the design of a project but instead of using the identical products you might change the stamp set or the colours.

This is what I have done to create the cute baby card shown above. 

The card I CASE'd is shown on page 55 of the UK Catalogue. It uses the So Very Happy stamp set - which I don't own ..... yet :o) I liked the card layout. It's clean and simple and suits my creative style.

I used the very sweet Baby You've Grown stamp set for the main image, Chalk Lines for the background stamping and Teeny Tiny Sentiments for the words.

I changed all the colours too, but the basic design layout  is the same as the original card.

So, dear friends ..... next time your Mojo goes wandering off ..... or if you just want to try a different creative style, have a look through the Catalogues and see what you can CASE too :o)
