Happy Saturday, my friends! It makes me so happy knowing you are taking sometime to relax and enjoy what you love most. Sit back, get comfy, and enjoy some of today’s inspiration!
This layout all started with a simple background and a few fabulous photos. As you look at these photos you get that feeling of “Take Me Away” just as the title states. I love how Jan used the Tim Holtz Crosshatch frameworks die at the bottom left corner and added some embossing powder to the die cut.
As scrapbookers, we know that it’s all about sharing the memories and preserving the moments. This masterpiece certainly captures a special memory and gives joy and fulfillment. This wonderful layout also includes washi tape placed on cardstock, which was then die cut and accented with gold paint. The embossed paper was dry brushed with a light green paint on the raised map area. What a fabulous layout created by Jan. Be sure to visit her blog, The Urban Scrapbook, whenever you are in need of some inspiration!
I love using coordinating stamp and die sets. It is such a fun and fast way to create an adorable card. I think it really puts a fun spark into card making! Using stamps to create your backgrounds is a great way to stretch your supplies. This card will certainly deliver a bit of sunshine to a special person. We know there is nothing like going to the mailbox and receiving a handmade treasure. Brighten up someone’s day by sending them your handmade card!
This card is so darling I had to share the inside as well!
I highly recommend visiting the Lorraine’s Loft blog and checking out all the great tips and techniques that Lorraine used when creating her card. I promise you won’t want to miss out on her other cards and projects. A big thank you to Lorraine for sharing her darling summer card with us.
A feather symbolizes hope and strength, and also make a great image for a clean and simple card. The new Tickle My Fancy set is filled with wonderful, solid line images. Yoonsun stamped the feathers on watercolor paper using Versamark embossing ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Using your imagination is all about creativity and taking something as simple as a piece of paper and creating a beautiful piece of art. I hope you have been inspired today to take out your stamps and let your imagination run wild.

This adorable flag is one that can be hung all year round, and not just through the month of July. I love how Cindy used denim and lace to create this shabby chic looking flag. The neutral colors makes it easy to match your home décor. Can you imagine taking the same pattern and making matching pillows? How fun would this be for a Americana family room?
This darling flag is quick, easy, and very inexpensive to make. Using up some of your own clothing can really cut the cost way down. And how special this would be if you used a treasured piece of clothing? Come with me and let me take you over to DIY Beautify where Cindy will give you step-by-step instructions to create your denim lace flag to beautify your home.
