Continuing the "day off" fun...

I LOVE Pinterest for inspiration for everything, not just scrapbooking.  It can feel a little overwhelming sometimes, though.  I like to narrow down what I am visually seeing by picking a category to browse.

My BSF (Best Scrappy Friend), Pam got me the adorable Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month, Wild About Love.

Cute, right?  I decided to find some Foxy inspiration on Pinterest and found this adorable wall art:

Since a big joke around my house is the What Does the Fox Say song (I find it irritating, but the fact that my hubby hates it makes me want to sing it over, and over, and over...).  In fact, I encourage the kids, nieces and nephews, my all sing it to him, too.  I see a clever card coming up!

Yes, I am writing this post AS I am working on the card.  I'm having fun blogging in "real" time.  LOL

I love this!  The patterns are busier than I would usually use, but I think it is fun!

Where will I get inspired next?  How about Etsy?  See you soon!

More "day off' fun...

Blog lovin' lead me to a wonderful sketch that I had marked liked so I could try it when I had some time.

Chickaniddy Crafts is a new company that has some fresh new products and ideas for the scrapping community.  I fell in love with this sketch and think that YOU should give it a try, too!

This one took me awhile!  Mostly some interruptions that were breaking my train of thought.  LOL  I was able to pull in a Project Life card (with the navy polka dot border).  To be honest, it is two cards layered on top of each other...I sort of messed up the bottom card.  The base paper is a MME pad and the fun patterned papers is Crate Paper.

Next Inspiration stop?  Pinterest, please!

A little "day off" fun...

Who am I kidding?  So far on my day off I have done two loads of laundry, answered some work e-mails that just couldn't wait, gotten some things organized for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, put away dishes, cleaned the kitchen and started dinner.  LOL  And now I have been sent to my room.  My scrapbook room!  My hubby laughed at me and told me to stop trying to get just one more thing done and have some fun.  Easy to say when he will not be cleaning anything up tomorrow.  

So I am in need of some inspiration.  Where am I headed to find that today?  I figured I would start with Jennifer Grace Creates Onward and Upward Blog Event from last year.  I participated in it last year, but those prompts and inspiration still have plenty of life left in them.

I went with her first Be Inspired prompts of adding some glitter to highlight an object and clustering some buttons and gems.  I completely love these color wash stamps!  I struggle with doing the glue and glitter thing, but wanted to give it a try.  I *gasp* gave away my stickles collection because of that very same problem.  I don't always get the coverage I want.  Originally I was not going to add a "card" for the Happy part, but I did not like the way it stamped before and needed to cover it up.  LOL

Where do you find YOUR inspiration?  I'm over to Blog lovin' next to see what I can find!
