Close Encounters of the Skunk Kind & Welcome Baby Card

Red and Cream It Is Then

Several of the blogs that I follow have been featuring red and cream projects including Dawn McVey in this post, Mich Wooderson in this post and Betsy Veldman in this post. Mich also showed some pages from her inspiration notebook, which also encouraged me to start my own!  I have been collecting things that inspire me for a while including pictures of cards and scrapbook pages from magazines, anything with color and design from magazines or the web, and I have even take some pictures of miscellaneous items that I liked. I have been trying to decide how to organize them. I read Ali Edwards book Life Artist, which I really loved. She had some good advice about setting up and inspiration resource which was not to complicate it too much. I can tend to spend all of my time organizing and not enough time creating! So, instead of making a pages for card layouts, color combos, titles, etc. I decided just to randomly add the items I like to Kraft cardstock, place them in an 8 1/2 x 11 album in page protectors and write what my ideas were based on the piece including a square border. So, one of the first pieces I put in was an ad from CTMH. I really liked the card templates, so I based this set on those cards using different stamps.  I'll highlight the inspiration page tomorrow.
