CASology Celebrates 5 Years ~ Blog Hop Time!

Another year older and we're starting off with a new look...and a blog hop! 

You should have arrived here from the awesome STAMPlorations blog. If you've missed any of the stops on our crazy fab 5-year Anniversary Blog Hop, you can always go back to CASology and start from the beginning. You definitely don't want to miss our celebration and the designers and companies that are sponsoring prizes! Check out the details below.


Even shaker cards can be CAS! I created the paper with all the "happy" sentiments I could dig out of my stamp collection and used various ink colors...I love a good rainbow of colors :) The banner is a folded banner die and was perfect to stretch across the balloon.

Now time to hop over to Kimberly Wiener's inspiration for our b-day party!

  124. I love, love, love, love and did I say I love your card? LOL I just made my very first shaker card and it was so much fun! I didn't have all the right things to make it but I watched a video and I repurposed something to make the shaker on the front of the card. I love how colorful your card is and that is so me! My cards and my clothes are always very colorful. I love all the different Happy fonts and what looks like hearts in the middle of your shaker. I want to try to make one just like it now that I know how to make one. They are so much fun to make and to look at. My mom loved hers that I made for her 90th birthday and she had never seen one before. Thanks for showing us your colorful card and for giving us the chance to win something. I love how creative people have gotten on this hop!
