Inspiration can come from anywhere and everywhere. Where do you get yours?  I used to just look at an item for what it was intended for. NOW, I look at everything as "can I use that on my cards?", or "wooo I'd love to copy that on a card", to "hey that would be awesome on a card...must remember!".  Of course half the time I do not remember an idea, unless I have a) just seen it and went right to my craft area, or b) wrote it down, in which case I find the notes, weeks later!
This is a card I made for OWH, deadline for Valentine cards is January 7th, 2011. So last couple crafting days I have been working only on V'day cards. Well, I got inspired by the oddest thing for this card. Now, don't was toilet paper! It's "quilted" in this pattern and I thought, "hey, that would be awesome on a V'day card" right to the craft area I went. You're laughing, aren't you! ha ha....I did.
Tell me what you think, was it a good inspiration?
My heart is yours
Happy Crafting,

  1. that is soooo cute!! what kind of adhesive did you use so it can't be seen through the toilet paper??

    I'm with you on looking at every little thing as a possible embellishment! and now thanks to you, i will never look at toilet paper the same!!

  2. haha...I actually didn't use the t/p but just the idea from it. But I have read how to use napkins and/or paper I guess t/p could be used

  3. hahaha!!! i'm glad i asked! i was getting ready to start cutting up and inking my toilet paper!!! (i'm still new at this!!!)

    very clever!!
