Casing What is it?

Some of you have asked what the term Case means. Case means to "copy and share everything" I have copied a great article from my Stampin’Up magazine.

We hate to disagree with your mom, but here we go: Sometimes it’s OK to copy. A case in point? CASEing. You might already be familiar with the term CASE. There are several definitions, but we like this one because it best embodies our Statement of the Heart: Copy And Share Everything. Let’s face it: if we had to always rely solely on our own ideas, most of us would have just a few cards or pages to show for hours of work. Occasionally, we all get inspiration from someone else’s creations, and that’s a good thing. Here’s why. CASE ing can save you time. Instead of trying to coax ideas from your head, you can just flip through a magazine or browse a web site until you find something you love. (Yes, it’s fun to come up with your own original idea, but sometimes you don’t have the time, or you just don’t trust your own creative instincts.) When you find a project you love, you can re-create it exactly as it is, or you can customize it. CASE ing is creative. How many times have you looked at a sample and thought, “I like the layout but not the colors”? There’s no rule that says you have to CASE a project exactly as it is. Play around with it. Change the colors. Add or remove accents. Use a different stamp image or pop up accents with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The original project is just a jumping-off point for you—let your creativity shine as you make the project uniquely yours. It’s easy to find ideas to CASE. You don’t have to look hard to find ideas. “Imitation is the sincerest flattery.” C. C. Colton that we’ve received from demonstrators).You’re sure to find something you want to CASE. Here’s something else your mom told you, and we’re not going to contradict her this time: It’s good to share. Sometimes you’ll be the one CASEing a project, and sometimes you’ll be the one who creates an original project to share so others can CASE it. Either way, you’ll be part of a creative cycle that benefits everyone. So go ahead—CASE away!

So with that I would like to share a card that I cased!

This card comes from Jackie Topia.
