It’s rare that you’ll find me creating anything with a vintage feel. That’s just not my go-to aesthetic. When CASE Study invited me to revisit an old project and create something new, I was inspired to reach for some vintage map wrapping paper!

Map-Stationery-InspirationThe inspiration came from this moving announcement project, where I featured the State to State die by Clear  & Simple Stamps.  I mounted the die onto corrugated cardboard cardstock, which you can likely find at your local craft store. I purchased mine at Michael’s in a 12×12 sheet.

For round two of this project I created a little crafting kit (I’m sort of all about crafting kits these days)!

{VINTAGE MAP PAPER} While we were in New York this past weekend, I picked up some beautiful sheets of wrapping paper from Paper Source. Among my purchases was THIS vintage map paper.

{MINI BAG DIE} I used the newly released Mini Pocket Die from Lifestyle Crafts to create treat bags from the map paper. As you may already know, Lifestyle Crafts is offering 50% off your entire purchase with the use of the promo code: DAMASK.

{STRIPED BANNER EMBELLISHMENTS} For these, I reached for my Navy Shape n’ Tape Washi Sheets and used the Tape It Kit to create a banner embellishment.

{EMBOSSED COMPASS TAGS} The Clear and Simple Stamps Nautical Flags set includes a beautiful compass image, which I heat embossed and made into a simple, vintage-y tag.

{VINTAGE POSTAGE STAMPS} Here I used the Papertrey Ink Postmark set to create a few itty bitty postage stamp images.

  4. The research process will affect your point of view and give you the opportunity to stand up and fully understand the current topic Assignment writing. Draw an outline. Organize thoughts by categorizing the main thoughts accordingly. The outline will be the framework of your entire assignment. The necessary parts are the introduction, body and conclusion. Write it down. Once your article is clear from the initial overview, you can write down all the ideas you want to discuss further. Use your research to easily incorporate your ideas into your homework. Editing and proofreading. If you are satisfied with the initial draft of the assignment, you will start reviewing and revising the assignment. Read through each paragraph and check for errors or difficult arguments. In addition, proofread your work and check for cosmetic errors that might cause you to lose your high score.

  5. It should be mentioned that the learning route of CS writing starts with programming and then develops to understanding the overall architecture of the computer. Programming is not the theoretical base of computer science, but an important practical basis. If you first master programming, then master algorithms, and then understand the von Neumann computer system, you should be able to have a comprehensive understanding of the entire computer science. Our view on CS is as follows: This is not a difficult science. If you are just an undergraduate, it is necessary to understand the structure of computers and learn to communicate with computers. After learning programming, you will understand that computers are really stupid or strict. . . . Let’s talk about my views on the use of this subject. I am still a graduate student. I’m probably out of touch with society. I hope the gods can give me more advice.

  6. It can be a challenge to study abroad especially if English is not your first language. Effective communication, both written and spoken, is impeded. This makes it crucial for you to get professional writing help. Methodology writing service is among the areas within which professional writers can help you.
    It opens up an avenue for other areas of your study that may be a challenge, even as you try to become a better English speaker and writer. Get in touch with a professional writer today. You improve your chances of a better performance especially if you are an international student.

  7. One of Pareto’s old rules has been applied to business. It’s called the 80-20 rule. This means that 80% of the results come from 20% of the effort. Please consider it carefully. Do you want everything to be perfect in international student assignment writing Remember, you are a student and no one expects you to be perfect everywhere. We are here to improve ourselves, so we have to learn step by step. Homework that seems like “too much” can actually be “too detailed” There is a reason to introduce an example that encourages you to learn quick reading skills. Textbooks are not like literature, where every sentence has meaning. So you can skim or, in some cases, even skip an entire paragraph – usually the last paragraph summarizes what has gone before. Also, quite a few schools or classes are adjusted for grades, so 80% may mean you are 100% in the class.

  8. Most international students who have just arrived overseas face various challenging problems, especially towards the end of the semester when they are confronted with a wide range of exams. The community of international students also bears enormous pressure. In order to alleviate the exam stress among a large number of international students, our Exam Proxy service has made significant efforts to assist numerous students in successfully completing their exam tasks, garnering consistent praise.

  9. Thanks for the tutorial! I am a fan of studying and everything connected with it, I like to learn something new.

  10. They look so cute! I’m really into studying as well, and it’s great that nowadays, there are many educational sources that help people boost their skills. For instance, not so long ago, I managed to discover noun examples in english on promova not so long ago, and now I recommend this source to all my friends who are wiling to boost their language skills.

  11. With the continuous heating up of the study abroad craze, there is an increasing number of international students, and the demand for online course proxy exams is also increasing. Institutions like Meeloun have also grown and expanded accordingly. Due to the sharp increase in demand for online course proxy exams, many old customers naturally know that Meeloun is a legitimate institution. So how can international students judge whether Meeloun is reliable? Actually, any reliable online course agency cannot do without the following three points.
