#tgifc91- Inspiration

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”– The Notebook

Ok, so how many of us have watched The Notebook? Maybe more than once for more than a few of us. It's one of the first movies I think of when I think about love, so I figured a beautiful quote about love straight from the movie would definitely set the tone for this week's challenge.

This week's challenge doesn't have to be about Valentines - just love in general. So go wild, awaken your soul and reach for more!

Before we take a look at what our designers have created this week, let's take a moment to recognize  ....PETRA for being our team's favorite card last week! Let me tell you - we had a hard time picking just one this week - there were SO MANY fabulous cards submitted last week. Thank you ALL for playing along with our challenges.

#tgifc88- Designer Spotlight


I may be totally biased but I think our Team is pretty freaking awesome so I'm excited to
Welcome YOU to this month's Designer Spotlight!

But before we announce which talented gal is up this month let's talk about another AWESOME crafter...Yep the winner of last weeks challenge...drum roll please...


Kaitlyn is pretty awesome, let's get to know a little more about her.
1. Tell us about yourself: Graphic Designer. Paper Crafter. Dog Lover. Arrow Shooter. Sports Watcher. Michigander in Utah.
2. Three words that describe your style: Clean. Detailed. Fun.
3. Most awesome crafty moment: Being hired as a Concept Artist/Product Designer at Stampin' Up!. That means I design products (stamp sets, paper, etc.) and then play with the product to make samples for catalogs

4. What 2 Stampin' Up products could you not live with out: Big Shot. Heat Tool. 
I love all the amazing things you can create with a Big Shot and I'm always using my Heat Tool for embossing or drying watercolor.


5: Share one random fact about you:I'm a Ravenclaw.

Kaitlyn's Tip of the Day: Tip. Cluster! If I'm stuck on a project I just start clustering pieces together. I tend to build my cards from the top down by doing this.

So how does this new challenge work?
All you have to do is create something inspired by our spotlighted designer!

So use the picture above or visit her blog Create With Kaitlyn
  to find something that truly get your mojo going.
We would love to see what creation you chose so please link back to it if you can.
;)

~Now let's see how our Team was inspired~

#tgifc86 Let It Snow!


Ready for some inspiration?

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Oh it doesn't show signs of stopping
And I brought some cards for stamping
The lights won't be turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!


We also want to give a warm shout out to our winner of last week's challenge -
Jo Hooper from the Crafty Crafter!

Here are our creations to help inspire you!  I hope you take a moment to play along this week!
