Catalog CASEing

By now, the newest annual catalog has made it into your hands and you have a list a mile long.  I get it - so do I.  But one of the things that happens to me is that I order everything and then can't figure out how to create with it.  I am overwhelmed by all the great options.

This year, I tried something new.  Our catalog is full of beautiful ideas that are designed to showcase our quality products but also to inspire you with layouts and color combos.  I needed samples ASAP for my catalog kickoff but didn't have a lot of pre-ordered supplies to work with.  What could I do?

Take a moment and go to page 41 in the catalog.  You see a Quick and Easy section on the top of the page tied to the One Big Meaning stamp set.  There is a Thanks Kindly and A Little Thanks card that feature the Moroccan Designer Washi Tape (which I love but couldn't pre-order).  I did pre-order the Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape though....

That is how I landed at these two cards.  They are the exact layouts and stamp sets from the catalog but using the supplies I had.  They have a different look and feel based on the change in colors.  Next time you need a little help to get your creativity motor going, jump to a page in the catalog and see if you can remake it.  I guarantee that good creative things are in store for you!

For this first card, I highlighted the new In Color, Emerald Envy.  I made the flower by punching two flowers from the cardstock and then peeling one flower apart.  I crumpled that part and used a glue dot to hold the shape.

  • Cardstock/DSP: Emerald Envy, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Stamp Set: One Big Meaning
  • Accessories: Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape, Petite Petal Punch, Glue Dots, Adhesive
For the second card, I cut the card to 8 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Then I just layered the washi tape on and mounted the saying on dimensionals. 

  • Cardstock/DSP: Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Stamp Set: One Big Meaning
  • Accessories: Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape, Dimensionals
