It really is a Tropical Paradise when you create with the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper (DSP). I have decided to feature a “CASE the Catalog” weekly segment. Each week, I plan to make a new card or project from the catalog.
Since the Designer Series Paper Sale going on, I thought I would start with the Tropical Escape DSP and the Tropical Chic stamp set. The whole look really makes me think of a tropical vacation. The paper has such a soothing feel and really allows you to have some unique projects. The first card uses products from the Tropical Chic bundle. Because you get the 10% savings on bundles, I highly recommend purchasing bundles whenever you can. The ribbon was a great addition for me on this card.

This next card is probably a favorite of mine because of the negative part of the cardstock as a “window” of sorts. I was drawn to it when I saw it in the catalog. The darker leaves coordinate nicely with the DSP background. I did leave off the stitching for my version.
Finally I have a 3D project for last. How cute is this box. It’s kind of a blending of all the cards on page 120 of the catalog (which is where you can find the samples above, but you probably knew that). While the sentiment can be changed for any occasion, I like to use encouraging phrases. I find that family and friends rather have hand made projects. They certainly feel loved when they receive them.
If there is a card or project from the catalog that you could like to see, just let me know and I will try and include it in a segment. I am open to various ideas to include all occasions. Also, let’s not forget about “just because” cards.
