In Any Case....with Melinda and Melissa

Join us twice a month as we CASE, “Copy And Selectively Edit”, artwork created by the Art Department of Close To My Heart as showcased in the current Idea Books and our Make It From Your Heart How-To Books.
On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, at 8 pm CT, we will direct you towards a piece of art and recreate it using the exact products or others that compliment its initial design. Tips, techniques and assembly directions will be shared in detail to help you recreate them on your own.
As you reproduce the items we have shared, post them on social media using the hashtag #ctmhinanycase. We will randomly search that hashtag and reward those who CASE our items. Winners will be announced on our blogs so be sure to follow us!


In Any Case with ... Melinda

and Melissa

I was looking for a quick make and take and the bookmarks on page 67 really fit the bill. So this week I am CASEing them and even sharing the complete Design Space for you to make these yourself. Oh and what do I mean by CASE? Copy and Share EVERYTHING!

Want to see these bookmarks in the catalog but you don't have a copy of our new catalog? You will receive one free with your first order placed on my website or you can see it here online, or let me know you want one and I will be happy to drop one in the mail to you.

Here are my CASE'd bookmarks.

First of all, here is the Design Space file:  https://design.cricut.com/#/design/100517778.  I used these Cricut Collections - Flower Market (Z3290), Artistry (Z3190), and Artiste (retired).

Both bookmarks use the Inspired Words Stamp Set (D1740). The sentiment is stamped with Peacock Ink (Z2849) for the bookmark on the left and Sorbet Ink (Z2864) for the bookmark on the right.

Once you cut everything you need, all you need to do is corner round the edges with our Corner Rounder (Z1912) and punch the hole at the top. The patterned paper used for the bookmark on the left is the Sweet Leaf circles and the Juniper stripes from the Whimsy Fundamentals paper pack (Z3350). I used the Peacock striped patterned paper from our Enchantment Fundamentals paper pack (Z3352) for the small dovetailed piece. The star is made from White Glitter paper (Z3237) and the larger pennant uses the dark side of Pebble Cardstock (X5955). The Juniper striped patterned piece is matted with Charcoal Cardstock (X5953).

The bookmark on the right has a base made of Bashful Cardstock (X5941).  It also uses Charcoal Cardstock (X5953) to mat the Sorbet flowered patterned paper from the Whimsy Fundamentals paper pack (Z3350). The dovetailed pennant is cut from the dark side of Pebble Cardstock (X5955) and the heart is cut from Sorbet Cardstock (X5983).

Both bookmarks are finished off with a ribbon from the Basics Ribbon Collection (Z3364) and the small and medium white dots from our Black and White Dots (Z3314).

Now please head on over to my Partner in CASEing, Melissa Robinson, and check out how to make her cute little cards. I know I am going to head over there!

Tune in again, on July 26th, for the next episode and be sure to CASE one/all of the artwork we highlight and tag it  #ctmhinanycase on social media. We'll come looking for you and you may be a prize winner!
