Inspired By All the Little Things #59

 

Hello Everybody!

After a whole lot of steamy, muggy heat and rain, this morning turned out to be cool and beautiful! A gorgeous summer day calls for a pretty summery card, and the challenge photo from Inspired By Al the Little Things gave me just the right inspiration! If you hurry, you still might have a little time to play along yourself with Inspired By All the Little Things right here: http://inspiredbyallthelittlethings.blogspot.com/2017/06/inspired-by-59-featuring-amy-sheffer.html

Inspired By All the Little Things #56

Hello Everyone!

I am so honored to share this wonderful news with you today! I have been invited to share my work as a guest designer with one of my favorite inspiration blogs, Inspired By All the Little Things! Every week, the creative team delivers beautiful inspiration and ideas and invites us all to play along. You can get all the details and link up your creation over at the Inspired By All the Little Things Blog right here: http://inspiredbyallthelittlethings.blogspot.ca/

Take a look at the beautiful inspiration photo for this week’s challenge!

Here’s how I was inspired!

I just fell in love with the bright explosion of color in the basket against the clean and crisp white background. I love working with paper, cutting and shaping colorful pieces to create lush images against CAS backgrounds. It’s sort of an unusual CAS fusion thing, but I love the look.

Thanks are gratitude are definitely in order for Karren Johnson and the Inspired By All the Little Things design team for inviting me to share my design this week!

Thanks for joining us today!

Live your life in color!

Gingerbread Ville

Hello Everyone!

It’s gingerbread season! Growing up, the only time we ever saw gingerbread was when it part of a house: dry, hard, covered in frosting mortar, stuck with stale candy. We never made it or ate it, and it ranked up there with fruitcake! Until we moved down South and attended Mr. Crimson Owl’s holiday office party, I never even knew gingerbread could be soft, chewy, and delicious! Mr. Crimson Owl’s former co-worker now has a home bakery business, and we make sure to order her gingerbread every year! This year, I was inspired to make a cute little gingerbread scene from the Inspired by All the Little Things #37 challenge.

I love how pretty the gingerbread cookies look in the photo! But I thought “outside the jar” and created a little winter scene made out of gingerbread! I wanted the scene to look flat like cookies, stuck in the snow with a little bit of frosting!

I thought about this card for a while! I wanted to do something a little bit different than just flowers, so I added the birds on the branch in the same colors as the flowers. I love how the mood of the inspiration photo felt like a celebration, and that’s how it feels too with this happy flock!

Thanks for joining me today!

Live your life in color!
