You Are...


Many of my friends know that I am easily addicted to things and can get quite obsessed with them! Pinterest is ONE of my many addictions and I fit it into my daily morning routine, I check my emails, check the news, see what the latest is on Facebook, check the weather and then I go to Pinterest to be inspired. 

I have pinned lots and lots of things on Pinterest which inspire me, things I like the design or pattern of, the colour combo of and cards that I love and inspire me. Now and then, when I'm stuck for inspiration I will check out the Cards I Love to help me create something and very occasionally I will look at my other boards for inspiration.

I decided yesterday whilst pondering on what to create that I should use my Pinterest pins more, basically putting the time I spend looking at lovely things into action! My aim is to create at least now project a week inspired by something I have pinned that week and share it with you all on a Sunday.

So, lets see what pin I was inspired to create from this week...

The reason I pinned this image, was because of the bold turquoise lettering against the kraft card. It stood out to me and I knew it would be fun to recreate this look with die cut letters. So I looked at my supplies and Uniko Studio stamps and this is what I created...

On this first card I used the 'Awesome' sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #2 which I stamped in black along the bottom edge of a 10 cm square of Crumb Cake CS. I then die cut the 'You Are'  from Hawaiian Shores CS scraps using the Memory Box Typewriter Upper Alphabet Set. After gluing those in place I swiped my SU! Baked Brown Sugar ink pad around the edges and when dry adhered the panel to a SU! Garden Green 12 cm square card base. As it was such a quick creation I decided to make another one...

This time I used the 'Fabulous' sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #3 and mounted the panel onto a Raspberry Fizz 12 cm square card base.

You can follow me on Pinterest by going HERE or you can follow the link on the right hand sidebar. I hope I've inspired you today, even if you are not on Pinterest you can find inspiration like this from all sorts of places, like the supermarket or magazines to name a couple.

That's all from me today, enjoy your day & until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by :)
