Good day my artsy friends, I hope you’re ready to soak in some inspiration and get those creative juices flowing!
Let’s start out with a gorgeous layout designed by the very talented Mona Pendleton. I will confess that I’m new to using stamps on my scrapbook layouts. But I am here to tell you that the water is fine, so dive in and give it a try! I must warn you it’s addicting – once you start you can’t stop. Think of all the possibilities, it’s just one unique background after another from here on. 😉 Have fun experimenting.
On the outside chance that you haven’t spent lots of time on Mona’s fabulous blog, click here and I will take you over. You’re sure to leave inspired to start that next project. Happy stamping!
Would you believe that this gorgeous Shabby Chic Pocket Card started out it’s life as a bag? Not just any bag but a sweet Kraft Middy Biddy Bag With Horizontal Stripes. These bags are an impressive 5″ x 7.5″, so there’s LOTS of room for tucking in photos, a letter and/or journaling, and a gift card. Really Reasonable Ribbon carries several different styles of Decorative Bags. How perfect would they be for a cute mini album; just turn them on their side, stack several together and bind with rings and more ribbon. Just thinking out loud! 😉
Being the creative person that you are, I’m sure you can think of dozens of uses for these oh-so-versatile kraft bags. Click here and I will lead the way over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (A little bit of advice, you might want to have your credit card with you because you’re going to be blown away by the amazing ribbon selection and great pricing. I’m ok with being an enabler; after all, what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t share this great tip?) Be sure to stop by Karen’s blog My Cup Runneth Over anytime you need a burst of inspiration.
The term simple elegance comes to mind when I look at this beautiful card. It has the perfect balance of sparkle and subtle texture and soft color scheme. This sweet card is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Stop by Lucy’s blog for a world of cardmaking ideas. I hope that you’ve been inspired to send a handmade card to someone special today.
I couldn’t stop myself from posting yet another way to use those oh-so-versatile mason jars. I must confess I have a thing for mason jars; I’ve used them for everything from creating the cutest sewing kits to making handmade lanterns to hang in trees.
With summer right around the corner I thought you might enjoy these easy to make luminaries. Won’t they look adorable on your patio table during those fun Summer BBQ’s? And did I mention they’re solar powered?! Click here and I’ll take you over to the Mom Spark blog where Amy shares step-by-step instructions.
Moist, flavorful, juicy, healthy and only takes 10 mins to prep! This salmon dish is amazing and oh-so-easy to make.
