CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop!

Eeek!  It's Thursday!  You know what that means right?  Well if you are a fan of CASE Study Challenge you know it's time for a new challenge! And it's a new month too!  August!  That means we have a new muse!!!  YAYYY!    But WAIT UP!!  I hate to break it to you but there's no inspiration photo and there is no muse to introduce today.  : (   Oh don't be sad!  Miss Chupa has something even more fun planned!  It's Case Study Challenges 3rd Anniversary!  And my oh my - just wait until you read all the details - let me just say a few words... blog hops... designers... and AHEM... are you listening?  CANDY!!!  You can get all the details here.  If you already have the scoop and are following along on the hop you should have reached here by way of  Debby Hughes' blog Lime Doodle Design.


_DSC0006We all made a project that was CASED.  (CASE = Copy and Share Everything).  Inspiration could have come from any number of places like Pinterest, or even better - a creation made by someone you know.  I have been so fortunate to have met so many wonderful people in the crafty world that inspire me every single day.  I've really changed how I look at designs and have come to appreciate so many different styles.  The hardest part about this challenge for me was deciding who to CASE.   After much searching I locked on to this great card from - Suzanne Dahlberg from Freshly Noted.  Suzanne has a neat way of marrying CAS and fussy together.  Looks CAS right?  But look closer - there are layers, and die cuts too!!!  See what I mean?     I switched it up a bit replacing the zig zag die cut with a border or stitched circles, and a cupcake for her flowers.  
Ready for the next step on your hop?  Head on over to Cristina Kowalczyk from My Paper Secret Blog.
Have a great day and happy hopping!!

Precious card.

Mary said...

What a "sweet" card and I do love your layers. I'm loving layers that are still reasonably priced for mailing. Oh soooo pretty. Great job!

Cathy Weber said...

This is a great CASE of Suzanne's card,,,love the quilted circles with the great bright patterns inside...also that interesting edge to the card is great. I think you just found a way to describe my style too: marrying fussy with CAS. I have never been able to describe my style and I think you did when you described Suzanne's, although she is much better at it! CAS with layers.

You're a freakin' robot. You must exist on 5 hour energy because I don't know how you find the time to crank out ALL these incredible creations. I just love your style (ALWAYS) and every time they make me smile. The colors and the joyfulness on all of them are fabulous.
I've just finished perusing all of your posts I've missed and again...I'm on the floor and speechless; except for this that I just said..LOL!
hugs to you Jeanne and hope you're doing well.
