Calling All Sistahs!

Happy Tuesday!

Calling All Sistahs!!
It's the 17th of the month
so I'm here with your monthly reminder as I promised to do over a year ago...
Sistahs, pleeeease check yourselves!!

***I have a little confession to make to you***
Since finding my own breast cancer through a self exam...
each monthly exam since I had it extracted, blown up, destroyed...
terrifies me.
Not gonna lie, I have to do a few deep breaths first each month and my heart gets going.
The sense of relief I feel when I feel nothing new brings me to tears.
If I can do it, you can too.

Breast Cancer Awareness needs to be part of our monthly regiment.
Please do your self exams.
If you are past due on your mammogram, please schedule it today.
I don't want you to have it,
but if you do,
I want you to find it so you can crush it!

You matter.
Early detection is key.
Please share this message with all of your sistahs.
If we can catch it early, we can keep working together to take this disease DOWN!

As you know, I have a special collection of stamps and dies
designed specifically to support breast cancer awareness programs by
my donation of 50% of its profits.

Today, I have a special limited edition product that we are adding to this special product line!
It's called Sistahood Sparkle
and it's a specially mixed sequin mix from my sweet friend Paulina at
Pretty Pink Posh.

You can only get this special mix here while supplies last.
Once they are gone, they are gone!

I am joined today by my friends from all over the world
to inspire you
and remind you
most of them are using these gorgeous Sistahood Sparkle sequins
in their projects today :)

Please leave them some love as you hop through
for your chance to win a prize!

Then head on over to the store to get your
Sistahood Sparkle!
And maybe pick up one for your Sistahs too!

50% of it's profits will be donated to
to support their breast cancer awareness programs.

Happy Sunday!

ok, I'm not even gonna try to pretend that
I didn't squeal with delight when I saw
Girl Friday Jeanne's card for today!

I squealed so loud I think I scared my dogs! LOL!

Ok, let's check out the delicious details!
She stamped the pretty music border from Love Notes in red and pink
at fun angles, then added the individual note stamps in a pale pink to fill in the space a bit.
Then, she cut Heart Note, Double Note and Treble Clef Fri-Dies in gold glitter paper.
I really like how she stamped the sentiment at an angle to follow the music.
You can find all these and more in our Music section on the website :)

On the 17th, we'll have our special Calling All Sistahs bloghop
I'm releasing a special limited quantity product!
Be sure to tune in so you don't miss the fun. :)

Happy Thursday!

got her ink on with our awesome stamp set called Be
and this happened!!

That is frameworthy!

Here's how her process went...

To create this card I used the BE Stamp Set. I started by coloring the small butterfly image with distress markers, misting them with water and stamping them onto watercolor cardstock. I then trimmed the panel down and heat embossed my sentiment. As we have recently entered a New Year I thought this sentiment would be ...a great reminder of what I hope to do this year, hehehe! I then adhered my panel onto floral cardstock and finished it off with a few black pearls. 
Design Tip: When spritzing your colored stamp try spritzing the air and running your stamp up through it, rather than spraying directly at the image this helps to ensure a cleaner stamped image.

um yeah. She's awesome.
Leave her some love please :)

Happy Monday!

You are gonna love today's card from

Look closely and you'll see she stamped Tin Roof into her heart shape!
She dressed it up with little heart cut outs from our Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies.
That die is so much fun as you can cut out lots of shapes at once to use for
shaker card filler or as little embellishments on a project.
Lastly, Love Ya Fri-Dies sits as the main focus of her card.

Have a fabulous Monday!

I have a new Girl Friday to announce!!

She's witty and talented,
positive and approachable,
inspiring and imaginative,
and I'm so excited she is now part of my team!


She created a super cool card for her big debut that is everything she is!

She's sweet, awesome and cool!
And I think today is an epic one and I think we are all probably squealing by now!

One of the sets she used retired last year and many of you were broken hearted about it.
Guess what? It's been redesigned and will be coming back in March!
How RAD is that?!
This is going to be a whole lot of fun having her here

Happy Friday!

We had a snow day yesterday which of course made my boys' day!
Today is still super frigid
so Girl Friday Nora's card is little bit of warmth on a cold wintry day...

She stamped that pretty background using our Starlequin set.
Then dressed it up with Mon Ami and Mon Ami Fleur Fri-Dies

She adhered them in such a way that she can easily open the pretty folded front.

which reveals the inside sentiment from our Be stamp set.

Absolutely lovely and such a great friendship card!

2017 is going to be a fun and exciting year!
From an exciting introduction to new products, there will be something to delight you time and time again! We're recharging our batteries this holiday weekend to spend some time with family and friends, but we'll be back with awesome inspiration in just a couple days.

In the meantime, don't forget about our awesomely fun challenge!
The current challenge is all about Celebrations.
Show us your projects that celebrate anything from New Years to birthdays and anything in between.

Kim used our Smiling and Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies to add that awesome sentiment and fun shaker box filler. The cute little jack elements stamped in the background are from Exclamations.
This card would be great for celebrating graduations, a new job, college acceptance, etc.
There are more great cards from the rest of the Girl Friday challenge team

It's the 8th and final night of Hanukkah!
It's the night when the menorahs shine the brightest
kind of like this amazing card from

*pausing for you to finish gasping*

So, this amazing card was created by stamping a background using Holly Jolly Borders.
She then snipped the edges of a few pieces of scrap paper to create her sentiment banner
with features Star of David.
The 8 and those amazing stars are from Hanukkah Fri-Dies.
(This die set is currently sold out but is on re-order. Simply send me a message using the contact us on my website and I'll add you to the "trying to wait patiently list" to be notified when it's back in stock)

A stunning end to our Hanukkah extravaganza!
I hope you've enjoyed all the wonderful projects.
I'll get them added to our Pinterest Boards so you can find them easily when you need project ideas for next year!
Find us there at casfridays

Happy 6th Night of Hanukkah!

has a beautiful card for you today
using Star of David stamps

I just love how she sponged the color through the middle of her cardfront and embossed the stars in white over it.
