Case-ing Myself, well that’s a strange title for a blog post, all will become clear I promise.  Crafters are a talented bunch and we are often inspired by projects made by other people.  Sometimes they are so fabulous we copy them exactly as they are it’s called Case-ing.  Where possible we always refer back to the original creator or where we saw the project.

I am often inspired by other peoples work but it’s rare I directly copy, I may start out with a plan but by the time I’ve finished it doesn’t bear much resemblance to the original.  I also think that it’s entirely possible for 2 people to design an almost identical card too at the same time…….. I have seen team members and customers do it. Amazing stuff!

So why am I telling you all this, well I ‘cased’ myself last week…….it’s one of my most pinned cards on Pinterest and I wanted to use some Spring Summer stamps so I decided to copy myself. So this is the original card, you can read all about it and my adventures in Utah in 2013 here.

So which one do you prefer? Interestingly most of the items on the original card are still in the annual catalogue, so it shows how popular they still are.
