Happy Anniversary CASE Study

Welcome to the 4th Anniversary Blog Hop #4!! 

It's hard to believe how long it's been since I was on the CASE Study Design Team.  That was such a wonderful time of crafting and seeing all of the lovely ladies creations, it almost seems like a lifetime ago!  

For the entire month of August, CASE Study has been featuring our former Muses and past and present Design Team gals.  After perusing all of the projects shared, we invite you to join the challenge and create something of your own inspired by one of the pieces of artwork.


The Blog Hop participants are sharing their latest inspirations and how they translated them into the paper craft wonders. 

To sweeten things up a little bit more, we're offering prizes to those who complete the Blog Hop, by leaving comments on every blog

I can't believe it is soon September!  I feel like this summer has just flown by, and I'm sad to see it go!  I love EVERYTHING red/white/blue!!  Like seriously LOVE it!!!  I was browsing Pinterest, and found several photos that I got my inspiration from -









I used my card kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I seriously love the my kits from SSS.  I read somewhere a few months ago that when you are applying sequins to a card, you should just hold them above the card, let them fall and adhere them where they are.  That's how I've been applying sequins!!  I love the variety of sequins at Pretty Pink Posh!

Enjoy checking out what these lovelies have created for your viewing pleasure -


Julie Smith - you are here


To be eligible to win prizes, be sure to leave comments for everyone along the way, then link up your name on the CASE Study blog. The sponsors this week are Clearly Besotted Stamps, Verve, Ellen Hutson, and Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Comments will be open until September 2nd at midnight EST.

If you want to play along with a CASE of your own (you can CASE any of the cards on the hop), head over to the CASE Study blog for that, too.

Happy Anniversary, CASE Study!
