Inspiration is Everywhere! The tale of a funky fresh card...

First let me start this post by apologising for the photos.

They didn't mean to be blah...it's just that they couldn't get ready for you because their photo editing software was inaccessible.

They really wanted to spruce up, polish up and make themselves amazing for you...but we decided that rather than make you wait indefinitely for their appearance (which I had already been teasing you with on Facebook) we'd better just make do and get 'er done!

So...inspiration is everywhere, it really is!

My youngest is getting ready to attend school and as many parents know...you go to ALOT of open houses and schools with hopes of finding 'just the right one'. We were recipients of many information packages, hand outs, brochures, business cards etc. Most of them very blah, boring, get the job done kind of things....and then this one....

.....It whispered sweet things into my ears, pitched woo like (all I can think of is... like my coffee to my lips in the morning...lame!).....

I almost squealed and didn't want anyone to touch it. It was perfect! The colours, the arrangement, the funky styling, the little sassy bird!! (I'm still a bit giddy, forgive me).

I knew immediately that I could translate it into Stampin' Up! colours, shapes and materials. I had so much fun.

On the top right we have the portfolio folder from a very lovely school, and the bottom left...a picture of the folder with his new little Stampin' Up! friend....




SQUEE! Aren't they a perfect pair?

Can you see how I used the same basic layout from the portfolio? I'm tellin' ya people, if a graphic artist has gone through all the work making something look this pretty...you need to follow their lead!!!

I'm going to make more of these. What do you think?

This is just a subtle hint...but you have another challenge coming at you shortly...
