Get Inspired

I am the kind of person who’s incapable of following a recipe.

For this reason, I’ve never been much of a fan of books and magazines that only do step-by-step projects. What I look for is inspiration. Techniques, materials, things I can adapt. My favourite mags for this are Craft Stamper and Cloth, Paper, Scissors. However, I confess I was recently enticed by the latest issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft, and the free gift on the cover (more on that later…).

Anyway, I plan to do a series of Inspired By projects, where I look at magazine articles and go “Ooh, that looks fun, but I’d do it like this…”.  This will, in theory, encourage me to do more projects, maybe try some things I wouldn’t normally go for, and hopefully inspire you in turn.

The project currently in progress uses the aforementioned free gift; a versatile set including butterfly and flower dies, an embossing folder and two sentiment stamps. I’ll be posting some pictures soon, so watch this space.
