Everyday Inspiration

There are so many things in our everyday life that can inspire us in creative ways. Such as clothing, jewellry, home decor & household items (i.e. dishes, bedding, etc), magazine ads, nature, and on & on we could go. We decided to give our Design Team gals some new types of assignments and you can expect to be inspired by these each month.

For this particular assignment/challenge we asked a couple of our designers to pick an everyday item that they could find inspiration from and create a project from that. They could use the colors, the design, the shape, the texture, etc.

So today we are excited to share with you projects by Mary Ann & Ro.

"Brand New"

Magazine ads can be such a great source to boost your creative ideas. The colors and the designs can spark many ideas to help you start your layouts, cards, etc. Mary Ann found this particular ad and was inspired entire design.

Here's a close-up view of the beautiful flowers that she created too.
Supplies: Imaginisce (Sole Sisters collection), Pop-up Posies; Border punch; alpha stickers (Doodlebug)

"I'm a Good Girl (sometimes...)"

"A few years ago a dear friend gave me a cup for my birthday. I just love this cup because the figure and the phrase that comes stamped on it: "I'm a good girl (sometimes....)" is perfect for me! LOL! I think this friend really knew me very well! Since then I always thought about making a scrapbook page using this phrase. So when Cari asked us to create a project that was inspired from everyday things around us I immediately remembered that my cup would be a great idea for a layout!"

Here's is Ro's inspired layout.
Supplies: Imaginisce (Sole Sisters collection: papers, Sticker Stacker, Chipboard Stickers), Roly Rosies; Core'dinations Colorcore cardstock; American Crafts & Fancy Pants (Alpha stickers); wood piece (from local store)

So take a look around you today. What inspires you? Can you find everyday items that spark your creativitiy?
Try creating a project using those inspirational items and share with us on our Facebook page or comment here & share a link. We'd love to see your creations and we'd love to hear what you thought of today's ideas!
