CASEing Kelly Blog Hop

CASEing Kelly Blog Hop Banner

Welcome to this very special Blog Hop that has been put together for the amazingly talented and oh-so-sweet Kelly Latevola 

This hop is comprised of a group of crafters each saying “thank you” to Kelly for all her generosity and kindheartedness. In Kelly’s CASEing Genius posts, she always takes THREE cards from the designer she is CASEing, and makes ONE card inspired by those three cards. I was featured by Kelly back in June of this year – you can see that post HERE! We were each invited to so the same with 3 of Kelly’s cards.

These are the 3 Kelly cards I chose – The first one inspired me to use a yellow strip down the side and to add sequins! The second card had me reaching for a girl stamp to add – and I also decided I wanted my yellow strip to be plaid like the green behind the beautiful girl Kelly colored!! And in my mind I turned the last card on it’s side and added my sentiment in the white space!!

Here is how my CASE of the beautiful, wonderfully sweet Kelly went:


I love the saying on this card – Kelly knows how to add BEAUTY to every day!!!

    Wow!!! What a fabulous job you did on your CASE of Kelly’s cards! I love how three very distinct and beautiful creations inspired your gorgeous card! You chose a combination of really great elements from each card and the outcome is awesome! I love all the different colors of sequins! The yellow plaid ties in so well with the colors you used to watercolor the precious girl. Such a meaningful saying too! Wonderful card!!!

    I have long admired Kelly’s talent and kind heart, but the really neat thing about this hop, is getting to see all you talented ladies again and seeing more of your work. I love how you went about taking elements from each of the three cards you chose and then creating your own unique spin with your card. It turned out beautifully! Thank you for sharing your time and talent with all of us on the hop.
