CASE a Jingle Belle

Since September 7th will be Labor Day in the US, we've decided to celebrate by giving you a bit of a head start with this week's card design.

We're asking you to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) any of the cards that Lauren or Stephanie have made for one of the Jingle Belles prompts (yep, you've got 9 ½ years of cards to choose from).

Be sure to tell us and link to what card inspired you.

Here is how we were inspired by each other:

based on this Inspiration Card by Lauren:

Stephanie says, "Lauren and I both love our Washi ... so I chose her fabulous washi card from our Inspiration Post in April of 2018.  I used teal and red for my criss-cross washi background and replaced her journal card with a stamped Silhouette Song Bird from Unity Stamp Company (which meant I needed to rotate the layout from horizontal to vertical).  I framed my image with punched snowflakes and some bling.  This was so fun and therapeutic to make."

based on this Inspiration Card by Stephanie:

Lauren says, "As soon as we started talking about this challenge, I knew I wanted to make the Yeti card from week two of our critter-themed challenge in October of last year. My only obstacle was that I literally had NONE of the products Stephanie used in her card, lol. Luckily I found Taylored Expressions' adorable "Mythical Grumplings" set at Paper Anthology, which gave me cute the Yeti and most of the sentiment. The rest of the elements were improvised using the closest things I had in my stash: a slightly larger tree die; similar stitched hills, and even a pale green snowflake patterned paper! Since my Yeti stamps were not holiday-themed, I added some holiday lights stickers, but I think they're a pretty good fit."

Link your CASED creations here by 6pm (EDT) on Wednesday, September 9th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:20:18.

I'm baaaack! Just wanted to give a tip I just discovered to all players. If you are a member of the Flickr Jingle Belles group, go over there and click on either Stef or Lauren's button under Top Contributors and it's WAAAAY easier to choose a card to CASE than going through all these blog posts, LOL. WAAAY easier! And now I've decided I will have to CASE you both, seems unfair and impossible to choose! Anyway, that is my two cents, hope it helps! XOXXO

I'm not slighting Stephanie I just didn't have the right things here at the cottage, but stay tuned I'm still going to case her card as I love it. I'm not one for using crumb cake or Kraft cardstock but was really impressed with her design. Thanks for the fun challenge, I only wish I had more time or the right things, hard to have everything at the cottage as what I bring with me has to go home.
