Hello again! I'm willing to bet that you're all just as anxious as I am for SCT's winter release. I can not wait for all the wonderful ideas and inspiration that I just know are waiting for me. Only 2 more days to go!!! While we're waiting, I'm excited to be back today to share some more insight on finding inspiration...and not necessarily where you may think to look.
I recently found that I had a little bit of unexpected free time on my hands. This very rarely happens, so I wanted to be sure to make the most of it, and get a jump start on my holiday cards. I could have easily turned to last year's winter issue for inspiration, but opted to mix things up a bit, and turn to my fall issue instead.
I absolutely love Vicki's designs featured on page 29 of the fall issue. They are so versatile, and can easily be adapted to suit any occasion.
By swapping out flowers for snowflakes, and a row of tress for adorable penguins decked out in hats, mitts, and scarves, I was easily able to relate Vicki's wonderful fall greetings into festive holiday designs.
Supplies: Note Card: Hero Arts ; Patterned Paper: Echo Park Paper Co. ; Snowflake Die and Pin: Maya Road ; Sticker: October Afternoon ; Twine: The Twinery ; Flag Banner: Martha Stewart Crafts ; Gem: Prima
Summer said it perfectly last week, so I'm going to sum up today's post by quoting her brilliant words. . "Inspiration is everywhere... you just have to look and keep an open mind." Thanks for joining me, and have a wonderful day! ~ Sheri Reguly
