Inspired By Cozy

The Inspired By Challenge is up and it just makes my heart happy. The feeling of the photo, the colors, the coziness. It inspired me to create 2 cards.

Uhm.... I really want her outfit LOL. These colors in the CTMH papers just speak to me, and the addition of the pine branches just tops it off! 

The main image is from Unity, sentiment die is Honey Bee Stamps and all else is CTMH

Winter and mittens just go together don't they?

Check out the inspiration....

A couple of projects to share.

I have a couple of things to share today. If you follow my Instagram you will have seen them (I post everything there, I don't always get her)

First I created some tags using my CTMH scraps and dies from MFT

Then I couldn't wait to ink up a new CTMH stamp (releases in January). The paper is from CTMH

Inspired By Christmas Tree

Time for another Inspired By Challenge. I created a couple of Christmas cards but with the colors I see Valentine's too so I just may be creating more this week.

All Supplies are CTMH except the Merry die (MFT). I fussy cut the gifts from pattern paper and mounted on foam squares.  One of them is based on the sketch and the other I pulled out the tree theme. 

The Tree card was based on this sketch:

Inspired By Crossing Sign

The new Inspired By Challenges are up and it's a fun one. I was inspired by the sign and it gave a good excuse to ink up this oldie but goodie Unity stamp. Isn't he cute? The papers are from Simple Stories.

Inspired By Reindeer

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was all over this one! I created 3 cards.

You might recognize the sketch on these I used it earlier this week. The papers are CTMH. The cute reindeer on the first card are from Unity. The second is from Pink & Main. The dies are from MFT

For this card the papers are CTMH but the die is from Simon Says

As you can see it's pretty clear how I was inspired :)

Now head on over to see what the rest of the design team have created.

I've been playing with paper this weekend....

I've been playing with paper lately but haven't posted here (I do post on my Facebook Page or Instagram - you should follow me there ;) )

First up I was just playing around and combined some old and new CTMH (the bear is from the January 2023 SOTM)

Next up I created a couple of cards using mostly CTMH but the dies and embossing folder are not.

That's all. I have a cute little tag coming soon, maybe tomorrow.

Documenting Happiness

I’ve had this project in mind for awhile now and have just never started. The challenge over at @asyouseeitchallenge spurred me on. 

I’ve got a bunch of old playing cards and this little wooden box that I had kept. The cards fit perfectly so I have wanted to do a grateful/what makes me happy collection up cycling each card with a different theme. 

I’ve learned not to say I will do one/week etc and I didn’t want to do it in a book/journal because if I don’t fill up the book it bothers me 🤣. So this is perfect I can do as much or as little as I want. 

Today’s card - hiking. Hiking makes me happy and I’m grateful to be able to do it in spite of my arthritis. 

Papers are from Echo Park Paper and stamps are CTMH 

Do you journal about things you’re grateful for?

The book that gave me the idea.
