Scrappy Inspiration

Hi Everyone! It's Monday and my kids are back to school after the long vacation. I luckily have the day off (my company's New Year Holiday since the New Year fell on a Saturday) and I have been crafting away in my very quiet house. Sooo nice to get back to my scrap table!!

If you are looking for some inspiration in this new year, look no further than the PSA Essential Stamp Camp Blog. Libby started a new feature...Inspiration Mondays! Every Monday she posts a photo to give you inspiration. Then YOU make a card, scrap layout, or whatever based on that inspiration. You don't have to use PSA Essentials stamps. Email her a photo of your project by Sunday and she features some great projects the following Monday. Here is the inspiration photo for this week:


Look at those beautiful colors! Maybe something to get you longing for spring, especially is you are under a whole bunch of snow this time of year. And I also want to share a layout I did for Croppin' Paradise last month. I used the new Love Birds line from Fancy Pants. I loved these colors!!


For some reason, this is my favorite ribbon right now. I pleated it and used fabric tac glue to hold it all down. That glue is awesome for ribbon!


And who doesn't love glittered Thickers??


That's it for me today! I am enjoying some alone time with my stamps and patterned papers and bling today. Tomorrow it's back to the grind, but today I'm enjoying being by myself! Hope you are having a great start to your week. Thanks for stopping by!
