First Inspiration Elevator



Welcome to Inspiration Elevator!  I was quite honored when Christa emailed me asking if I would like to be a part of this group and am so happy to have our first post for you!

IE is a group of like minded scrappy friends who want to raise the bar in their own creative process through unique challenges that we issue to each other once a month. These won't be run of the mill challenges and we hope you will join us each month and be inspired by the innovative designs we create.

The first challenge, issued by Christa, is two-fold: to create a new design that reflects your style, and to use a new product or technique that you find inspiring right now.


For my creation I had a hard time deciding what is most me... I love to sew,  use twine, and layere and lately I have been using my Cricut a lot too.  So for this challenge I decided to incorporate all four!   I am also loving the use of negative die cuts so I used my Cricut Going Places cartridge to make the arrow circle. The papers and elements are Nikki Sivils Noah


This is not a blog hop, and there are no prizes, but we would love it if you would take a few minutes to see what the rest of the Inspiration Elevator team created. We are sure you will feel inspired to get creative:
