Sometimes starting a project is from being inspired
by a favorite paper you just bought or sometimes
by something you get like this notebook my husband
gave me from his work. It was blue and had business
writing on it but then I thought hey... I have my favorite
papers from Authentique that I could use to cover it
and after rummaging around my room I found lots
of little bits of things to use to make this journal for
my road trips this summer.... Fun, fun, fun.... and now
I am ready and I made a couple of cards too from
the leftover scraps that I had.
The flowers and bling I used from
Prima... I soo love these colors...
Sometimes I know I get a little carried
away with putting things on my projects
but this was quick and easy using one of
their tags and to add to the love theme I
added little heart brads in silver on the
corners. The flower and ribbon
I had in my stash and it worked great.
This card was also inspired by the tag.
It says "The Best and Beautiful Things
cannot be seen... they must be felt within
the Heart"-Helen Keller. I loved this
so I cut out a Spellbinders die and put it
behind it to fancy it up and added another
tag with the clocks on it to give it a sense of time.
The papers are so pretty all I had to do was
add a fancy bow and some tiny pearls and
that was all it needed. Hope you like it!
I have lots to do out in the yard this weekend
so I will have some more things in a few days to
share... but until then... happy creating to you :)
Lots of Hugs, Teresa
