Sale-A-Bration: Avant Garden

Today, I am sharing Stampin' Up! explaining on CASEing.

No Shame in Copying

Copying another person's work is a no-no in many areas of life.  But in the world of paper crafting, we say go for it!  There's no reason to come up with a creative idea or project from scratch when there are millions for you to look to.  We call it CASEing:  Copy And Share Everything!

Here are a few guidelines:

  • Start with Stampin' Up! - find ideas in every catalogue.
  • If you copy a project from another crafter, give them credit by name whether you're posting their name online or saying it verbally at an event.
  • When you create original projects that you post online, consider adding a watermark that gives your name and website so people know where it came from.  And if you share other peoples' project images, make sure to keep their watermark intact.
  • Don't forget the Share part of CASEing and share your ideas freely,  Take it as a compliment if someone is inspired by your idea!

Stampin' Up! decide to do a little CASEing of there own using Sale-A-Bration's popular Avant Garden stamp set.  They found three projects on Pinterest to copy and switched a few things up to give them a different twist.  Click the links below to see these demonstrators' original ideas!
