Paper Crafting Inspiration

Projects designed by Sharon M. Reinhart

Had a great time sharing some inspiration at the Happy Critter Crop yesterday (fundraising event for animal rescue) an event organized by Sandra Lavoie. Great job Sandra! I shared this little make and take with attendees at the crop. Here is a little tip, when you are looking for inspiration you don't always have to start on a big scale. Start small as shown with the 3-1/2-inch mini card on the right in the photo above and then you can always build on it as shown in the photo below with the 5-inch square card. I also find its a great way to create ensembles, adding the favor bag shown above on the left.
The supplies used to create the cards are Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink yellow ochre, Stampin' Up Flower Shop rubber stamp set and coordinating punch, Martha Stewart butterfly and leaf punches, Fiskars mini scallop edgers, Hero Arts sentiment stamp set LP253, Wonderfil thread, green cardstock, shimmer yellow gold cardstock, and white cardstock.
I hope you are inspired to create something wonderful today!
Creatively Yours,
