guesting at inspired by all the little things!


Hello!!  Well... I have something fun to share!  Today I am guesting at Inspired by All the Little Things!!    Last month I was contacted by the super talented Karren about guesting with her for today's challenge.   I was so excited that she contacted me about being a part of this fun challenge that I said "yes" immediately. Karren is a super talented colorist and paper crafter.  If you want to be inspired you must check out her blog!  You can find out all the details about participating in the challenge here.  This week's inspiration is a fun photo of a set of old fashioned skis with a wreath (see photo below).  When I saw the inspiration photo I immediately thought of making something with skis, but unfortunately I don't own any stamps with a set of skis in them so I had to go a different route.  I decided to focus on the wreath in the photo, as well as the colors.  Since the colors are rather muted I looked through my stash of patterned papers and settled on some papers from the Pink Paislee Yuletide 6x6 pad.  My layout is based on this month's Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.  I die cut the wreath using the RC Leafy Wreath die from the green patterned paper twice and then layered them together slightly offset.  I used the two small sprig dies from the Leafy Wreath set to die cut some brownish patterned paper for my "pinecones" and adhered them to my wreath.  The banner (from the RC die set Tag Me) was also die cut from some paper from the Yuletide pad and then stamped with the word "believe" (from the RC set Walk by Faith) in black ink.  The banner was then adhered to the wreath.   After layering up everything as you see I added some little leaves to the banner and Ice Stickles for a bit a sparkle.  I hope you will check out Inspired by All the Little Things and a big thank you to Karren for asking me to be the guest designer this week!!


Hope you have a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white; Patterned paper:  Pink Paislee Yuletide; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Dies:  Reverse Confetti and AJVD; Ranger Ice Stickles
