Inspired By...Give Me Lemons

Time for another Inspired By Challenge and it's all about lemons this week, though the projects don't have to be!

I pulled out the lemons and the green and yellow for my card. I have used some retired CTMH products. I had to have this stamp set when it came out and I think this is the first time I have used it! LOL. Won't be the last though.


I pulled out the black stripe of the napkins via the twine 

Now be sure to come on over and play!

CLC and SugarPea Collaboration

Today is National Iced Tea Day!

Though I am not officially not part of the CLC DT I had to jump in on this Blog Hop because I love the SugarPea designs and especially the adorable Pucker Up set.


You should have arrived from Robyn's blog - if not go back to the beginning and be sure to leave comments along the way as there is a $25 Gift Certificate up for grabs. 

You know me... I'm not much of a colorer but couldn't resist using this cute little jug. I have paired it with the Zoe papers from CTMH.



I hope that you have enjoyed the hop and good luck on winning!

Inspired By...laundry day

It's time for another challenge over at Inspired By.

I pulled out the colors of the photo, the 'country theme' and the clip. It gave me a good excuse to use the new Sweet Girl collection by CTMH, such soft pretty colors and I thought the whimsical butterfly background paper along with the chicken wire pulled out the country feel of the photo. 

For the sentiment I used this month's (last day to get it) SOTM. I stamped it and then cut it apart before adhering. 

Now head on over to the Inspired By blog to see what the rest of the team created.

Inspired By...welcome

The new Inspired By Challenge is up.

I'm sure once you see the inspiration you will see how I was inspired. But, I pulled out the colors, flowers and woodgrain.

I used some Felicity Jane goodies for my simple card.


I mounted the image on foam squares for some dimension.

Check out the inspiration, can you see how I was inspired? I even pulled out the circle element :)

Now check out what the design team have done:

CLC - Caffeinated Inspiration

I am up on the CLC Blog with sadly my last post as a DT member over there as I decided to step down (at least for now). Life is busy (a fun busy but busy) and I just don't get much crafty time. 


Here is the inspiration picture... would love for you to play along!

Inspired By...pillows

Another pretty inspiration photo over at Inspired By today...

I have used, once again, some Felicity Jane goodies. They have the best floral papers for fussy cutting - and yes I did fussy cut the flowers. 








I pulled out the check pillow... only had scraps of the actual same color check, and then used some grid paper. 



Also playing along at scraplift sunday at Paper Issues

Inspired By...full bloom

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and once again, so pretty. No layout for me this time. I knew I had to use this retired paper by CTMH... isn't it perfect?  The stamp is this months SOTM.


I just layered the papers and then fussy cut some of the flowers from the pattern paper and adhered. Super fast and easy!



Here's the inspiration photo... come on over and play along!

Spring Summer CLC Blog Hop

It's that time of year again! Time for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop. And once again, there are a ton of prizes to be given away so be sure to play along with us this week!


I have used some new CTMH papers called Into the Wild for my Summer inspired card.

I then paired it with a couple of my favorite coffee themed stamps. The mug is from Stamplorations (Big Christmas Cups) - although they are called Christmas cups, they remind me of the old enamel camping mugs so that's what I am going for with my card.

I stamped on my mug a sentiment from the Coffee Quotes set by Joy Clair. 
As a final touch, to carry out the theme I added a die cut word using an Echo Park die.


Now don't forget to play along this week over here

Inspired By.... pennants

The new Inspired By challenge is up and it is so pretty.

Once again I was inspired to create a layout. I have used more papers from Felicity Jane. I then paired them up with some Unity stamps.  I fussy cut the beautiful flowers from the pattern paper.


To create the sentiment on the pennant (die from Reverse Confetti) I stamped a sentiment from the Leave Ordinary Behind SMAK kit then cut it apart and adhered.  The background stamp that I used on the gingham paper is from the Life is what you make it SMAK kit.



I also used the She stamp set.





Now head on over and see what the rest of the DT have created.
