CASEing a Crafter: Welcome Home

Hello!  I have unintentionally begun a series of posts called "CASEing a Crafter", with a few previous posts HERE and HERE.  CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything, and other crafters call this "lifting." Sometimes I see creations that make me want to copy nearly every lovely little detail, they are that amazing.  Love seeing the creativity from people around the world!

The card below was inspired by the incredible Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink.  She posted a card on the PTI Forum (where you need an account to access the content), and I had pinned it on Pinterest.


My patterned paper is different than Nichole's, but I kept many of the loving details she featured using the set, Boards & Beams.  Look at the golden doorknob (made with Gold Smooch Ink).  That touch is Nicole's, too.


The next one is my own idea, but is similar to many of my New Home cards.  It's rather plain compared to something the Papertrey Ink gals come up with, but it's sweet in its own way, I think.



Thanks so much to Nichole Heady for providing marvelous inspiration at all times.  I would love to peek inside that girl's mind!

And thank you for your visit today!
