Hello! It’s my pleasure to be hopping with my Paper Adventures team today. As we farewell the Jan-June Mini catalogue at the end of this month, we’re taking the opportunity to share favourites that we’re going to miss in this ‘Out With the Old’ theme.
My absolute favourite from the Jan-June mini was the Pretty Perennial bundle. Designed by Dena Rekow in honour of her million dollar sales achievement – I love everything about it!
For today’s projects, I have CASEd the cards from the catalogue using this bundle and added in the Hey Girlfriend stamp set for some fun teen cards.
I didn’t buy this stamp set when the catalogue first came out but I always planned to add it to my collection before it retired. It’s a great one for the long term stash – especially having two girls who are fast growing up!
There’s three different girls in the stamp set – all with a different style, which I love! I think this little lady is my favourite – possibly it’s the glasses, Ra-Ra skirt and the cute hair that have me hooked!
Using Stampin’ Blends, you can colour the girls to theme with any card design and using any skin tone you like. I really love this chart by Jacque Williams which allows you to see each of the combinations and had an option to download the chart and create your own skin colour table.

I didn’t have the exact same products in each of the samples, so I substituted where I needed to which is the perfect way to CASE. One of the definitions of CASE stands for Copy and Selectively Edit.
Next up on today’s hop is the lovely Narelle Simm –
Thanks for hopping with us tonight. Have a lovely weekend!
