Inspiration Sunday - March 18

Lucky us, we live in a world where inspiration is plentiful and easily available. I love the Internet! :)

Here are some links to things inspiring me right now:

Starting Points - Shimelle Laine

Because I've taken Shimelle's class at Two Peas in a Bucket, I've become more familiar with her Starting Points, and it's one of the most inspiring concepts that I've ever used. The possibilities are endless, truly. (I'll be sharing more than one layouts I made with the same Starting Point in a future post.) I'm hoping to try the latest one on her blog this week.

DCWV Layout by May Flaum

I love all that green. What a tasty shade that is! I love how it's balanced by both the photos and the other elements May added. Those flowers at the bottom--cut in half!--what a cool idea. I totally intend to scraplift the design of this page because it is awesome! Oh, and speaking of awesome...there's a giveaway on that post, too, so go check it out.

Scrap With Suzy - What Little Girls Are Made Of

My friend Suzy made an adorable layout based on a sketch that's part of a challenge. Go check out all the details, as well as all the other inspiring projects on her blog.

Oh, wow...I LOVE these pants! I'm going to make a pair (at least one!) for myself.

I listen to the Paperclipping Roundtable often, usually when I'm walking on the treadmill or taking my long walks around the neighborhood. This episode is especially inspiring to me, and I'm seriously considering the class the panel is talking about, Heidi Swapp's The Art of Observation at Big Picture. Listen at the link or subscribe to the Paperclipping Roundtable on iTunes.

So, what's inspiring you right now? Share with me in the comment section, or if you blog, share your blog link in the comments, and I'll check it out.


  1. What a great post Mel. Love all the inspiration and I'm honored you included my girly layout :)
