Spring Solitude Catty Case

Did you know the Stampin' Up! Spring~Summer Collection 2008 catalog has over 300 project ideas? It is a great resource for you to exercise your creative skills. You can CASE (Copy And Share Everything) a project exactly or make a few changes to a published project and make it your own style. Stampin' Up! makes it super easy for you to CASE their pictured projects exactly since they list all supplies & colors used for each project under the Index & Supplies section of the catalog. The card that I made using the new hostess Spring Solitude Bundle is shown in the catalog on page 22 with an Old Olive card base. You see that I simply made this card my own by switching out the Old Olive for Groovy Guava and I used Groovy Guava Double Stitched Ribbon tied through a folded 1 3/8 inch circle punch instead of a jumbo brad for the embellishment at the lower right. I have a tip to show you for making the half circle embellishment for your cards and scrapbook pages. To ensure that your circle is folded neatly in half, first score the cardstock using the channel from your paper trimmer as a guide. Then, line up the score line at the middle of the circle and punch. Voila! a perfectly folded half circle-fuss free.

Well, thanks for taking a peek into my stamping world. Happy Stampin'! EdieB
