A Dent in the DP Stash...


Happy Friday-Eve, Peeps! Well this week has totally zoomed by but that's always the case when you're enjoying yourself....speaking of 'CASES':

Time for a new CASE Study! Apologies for my poor play on words, but hopefully this creation of Laurie Schmidlin's up for studying this week will divert your attention from it :)

Check out the original post of this card here!

I took one look at Laurie's card and just knew that I had to indulge in my Crate Paper - Portrait Collection (and begin to finally make a dent in my hoard collection of patterned paper!) I selected a few scrummy sheets, a phrase sticker and some scrap lace from my ribbon pile and got to work on a CAS-ified version of Laurie's card.

Classic Birthday

As you can see, I kept the same kinda layout and couldn't believe my luck at how nicely the 'Happy Birthday' stamp from my Damask Designs Set (Papertrey Ink) fitted into that phrase sticker - bonus! :)

I really hope you can check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT whipped up for ya and maybe even grab a chance to play along with us!

Before I dash off to ink some some fabulous new Uniko Studio stamps (trust me, you're gonna love the new release! Ooh and if you've got a spare moment the odds are good at winning a new set but be quick!) I just wanted to thank you all for your sweet comments about my Moxie Fab win - you guys sure know how to make a gal blush! Thank You! x

Catch ya later!
