Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Be Inspired By Fashion

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander in Calgary, Alberta, Canada! If you have been hopping along, you most likely arrived here via my wonderfully talented friend Cathy Caines! She is always creating amazing works of art, and is full of wit! I love her for everything Cathy is. Make sure to check out her blog (like you haven't already), and click on the next button at the end of this post so that you catch all of the fabulous projects our team has to share with you! It's an incredible line up!



The theme for today is to be inspired by fashion! This leaves the doors open to endless ideas and crafty opportunities. As a mom of three, and working as a Registered Nurse, I am far from fashionable on a good day. But... I can always learn (aka google) the current trends right? Funny thing is Stampin' Up! has already done some of that research for us! Did you know that the array of products in the Stampin' Up! Catalogue are actually based on current trends? My google search reiterated just that.


One of the fashion trends I found interesting in my search is that bright colours (like those you would find in your favourite box of crayons) are hot this year! So I decided to pick some of my fave bright classic hues for today's set of cards. Monochrome is also in fashion this year, hence the individual monochrome cards. I then decided to go with some classic polka dots (which in my mind never really go out of fashion), and some ruffles to finish off these cards.



The gold touches also added that little bit of bling which makes these cards shine together. With the recent passing of Kate Spade (a fashion legend), I thought it be important to also highlight mental health. The sentiment on today's card is fitting with that. We all need to be a little more gentle with ourselves. In this crazy hectic world, it is so important to take time for you, and be forgiving of yourself. We are all human. Remember on those tough days to "Love You" for everything that YOU are. Honour yourself. ❤️

On that note, I hope that you enjoyed today's projects. Up next is the amazingly talented iconic Brian King!  I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today!

Thank you so much for visiting today! If you have any questions in regards to today's project feel free to contact me!

Cheers & Happy Stamping!
