Stamp club and 100th POST

 Guess What!!!! This is my 100th POST!!! 
Blog candy at the bottom of the post :)


Stamp club for November/ December:

I am totally making lots of these and hanging them from my chandelier over my kitchen table. I will post a shot when I get it all decorated.


Kraft, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White card stock, Kiwi Kiss double-sided Satin Ribbon, Brads, Holidays & Wishes, Winter Post Stamp Sets.

3-D ornaments:
Ski Slope paper Designer Series Paper, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Punch. The best glue for this project is Mono all-purpose white glue. There is no pinching until it dies is hold instantly.


I picked up a few extra goodies at Stampin' Up's Convention this year. So I though I would share of course. You can't buy the SU Lip-balm and pens so this is your chance. Leave me a comment on what inspires you when you are creating.

Thanks for visiting my blog I hope you enjoy the projects and ideas that I share.
I will pick a winner next saturday.

BIG, BIG, BIG!  HUGS

i often look through some blogs online before i go and create a card. i dont normally case one specific card, but combine my ideas with the inspiration from other card making/bloggers.

Congratulations, Brooke! As far as what inspires me...it's a combination of everything (other bloggers, magazines, SU catalog, color combinations, or a sketch). Thanks for a chance to win blog candy!

I am inspired by blogs like yours, along with craft magazines and websites with galleries. I get most of my inspiration from others, but sometimes I am inspired by fabric or magazine layouts.

I read blogs every day... it's usually a combo of all I have seen that makes things work for me.

Congrats on your 100th post! I love your skater card!!

What inspires me? It depends, but lately I'm getting to know myself better and I'm realizing more what I *love* ...cranberry tones, country blues, gold, chocolate, some burgundy's, some greens...cozy feelings...sometimes primitive even... and then I've realized that a lot of my supplies don't reflect this, so right now I'm only buying things that I really love ... things that are me:) and having that around me inspires (that's where the colors for my hubby's anniversary card came from - though the picture was taken at night and it doesn't totally show;) - that Winterpost set that you used in your card was something I really loved and had to have recently - I love vintage feelings too!! So I guess that I'm taking inspiration from what I love right now - colours, textures, feelings, designs:)

Hi Brooke. Stumbled on your blog from 'Ryemilan's Stamping and Scrapbooking'. She raved on so much about your Cinema Saturday challenges, I thought I would take a look for myself - I am glad I did :) Your card is gorgeous! Congratulations on reaching your 100th post....that is an achievement in itself! What inspires me is the person I am creating the card for - what colours they like; their personality etc... I also, tend to get inspiration by other card making blogs and what they have created. I can never seem to recreate exactly the same card as I always want to put my own spin on it but I always give credit to those who inspired me in the first place. Thanks for sharing xx

Congratulations on your 100th post! I think what inspires me the most are other designers like yourself and just taking a look around the world we live in. Everything I look at I try to incorporate into whatever I am creating!
