Inspiration Nation and CASEing Allison!

Share This!

InspirationNation_BlogPost Before we dive into today’s project, our next event at StampNation is about to start!

Each quarter, we have some sort of online event, whether it’s a free class, a party or an inspiration series.  This quarter, Maureen put 7 (off the hook) Mood Boards together for inspiration.

The Dream Team Members got all sorts of creative with their projects and videos that were inspired by the boards and we’ll share them with you each day next week!

There’s still time to become a member…click here for more information!
CASEing Allison 2 CASEing Allison with Stamp of Approval

Dream Team Member, Allison Cope did a fabulous Periscope last week with Stamp of Approval goodies.  I loved her card so much I decided to CASE it.  I did more than CASE, this is very much like Allison’s card with a few tweaks.  Her card was so close to perfection, I found it hard to change anything!

View the video to see how this card was done!

If you missed Allison’s Periscope, she actually uploaded it to Youtube.  It’s a treat!  Check it out here.

Next, you’ve GOT to hop over to Maureen’s blog – she was inspired by Allison’s card and did a MUCH better job of creating a card that was “her own”, lol…and has some pretty comical insights to her personality there.  I can attest to it all.  haha!
CASEing Allison Our SOA Beautiful World Collection sold out quickly, shipping was like Speedy Gonzales and many of my stampin’ peeps had their boxes by the weekend!  I know!  Crazy.

I’ve seen projects popping up all over Facebook, Instagram and StampNation and just like I suspected, as soon as you all got this collection in your hands, things would absolutely explode.  It’s so fun to see what you all are doing with it.  Be sure to tag us at #stampofapproval or #cpstampofapproval so we can find your stuff!

Our next collection comes out mid-July and like Dream Team Member, Heather North said the next collection is even better!!!  ;)
