Inspired by Maile



Happy Monday my friends!  We had a rainy afternoon yesterday so it was the perfect day to pop into the craft room.  I think my craft room was taken over by my die cuts.  I think I need to reorganize how I'm storing them because clearly they weren't making it back into where they should be stored!  But enough of that...you might have come by to see a card!  I have two to share with you both inspired by Maile's gorgeous card over at CASE Study.  To say that I love Maile's style would be an understatement!  Both cards use the inspiration to have a die slightly over the edge and lots of white space.  

My second card below also using one of Maile's signature elements...silk ribbon bows.  This entire card was inspired by the My Mind's Eye chipboard Dream Big banner that I had.  I used the colors on the plaid to determine the colors of my stamped image.  Have a favorite?  I'd love to hear what you think!

PS A big huge thanks for all of your comments on my post from yesterday.  I appreciate you all so very much!

  7. Love them both, Lynn :) Great mix of colours and well done with the dies. I use a CD case holder for mine so they are all in one zip lock container -- well, two zip lock containers LOL.

  8. Like 2 children, I can't pick a favourite. I love the masculine feel of the first with that hard graphic paper and then I love the soft feel of the others. It was so fun to CASE Maile this week! Had hot and sunny weather for the garage sale yesterday...lot of fun :)

  17. Yup.... tidying up as you go is something I'm not hot at and it can really affect my creativity because I forget to look through your stash when I have an untidy desk!!

  20. So awesome, and I love how these aren't just reproductions. Any time I try to CASE Maile, I just straight-out copy her. :) And I just reorganized my dies! I feel so much better having a system now.
