CASE Study 4th Anniversary Blog Hop

Thursday, August 7, 2014


I'm delighted to be taking part in the celebrations for CASE Study's 4th Anniversary! You should have arrived here from my creative friend Nina's blog. There are some fabulous blog hops lined up over the next few weeks with lots of prizes up for grabs. The sponsors this week are Serendipity Stamps, Penny BlackWaffle Flower and Uniko Studio! To be in with a chance to WIN leave a comment on each blog before Tuesday the 12th of August (11:59pm). Of course there's a challenge open to CASE any of the projects featured in the blog hop.


The theme for our creations was inspiration of any sort, so I found this gorgeous rustic wedding invitation on Etsy by FromLeoniWithLove. I just loved the lace banner, the kraft cardstock, the burlap, the twine and the overall feel of them.


The lace banner I made by cutting triangles from a folded piece of lace, I popped these over a piece of twine and glued the sides together giving me a pretty lace banner. The flowers are from Petaloo.


For the background I embossed some Textured Kraft Cardstock from Core'dinations Basics using Cuttlebug Rosa embossing folder by Anna Griffin and rubbed the embossed surface with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink.


The sentiment sticker is from We've Got Your Sticker/Forever from SRM Stickers and stitching from Sticker Stitches. Next up on the hop is the talented Keisha Campbell.

Here's the full list of participants for this week. Enjoy the hop!
