Inspiration is everywhere and sometimes where you least expect it. My daughter and I recently flew to northern WI for a "Women in the Woods" retreat for the women in my family. The Coca Cola napkin (below) was delivered by the flight attendant with my apple juice and generous bag of 10 peanuts (LOL).
The colors (including the new In Color Poppy Parade–the bright, clear red I was hoping for) and clean graphic
style were translated into today's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO148).
- Bling, bling . . . . the new Rhinestone Jewels from Stampin' Up! add a sparkling accent. There's good reason that they made My Gotta Have It List for new catalog products.
- Isn't that patterned butterfly hip? It's from Butterfly Prints (also in the new catalog) and coordinates perfectly with the Stampin' Up! Butterfly Punch.
- Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder splashes up the Whisper White squares. What is it about embossed white that looks so smashing?
- Card size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Circles (largest to smallest) in diameter: 4", 3 3/4", 2 1/2", 2 1/4". I love how the Circle Scissor Plus gives me the freedom to create the exact size I need. Here are helpful tips on using the Circle Scissor Plus.
