New Layout

Do you ever get stuck for new layouts? I picked up the latest copy of Cards and found some really fun layouts that I thought I could incorporate with my A Muse stamps. Magazines and books are also a great source for color inspiration. Are you a patterned paper hoarder? Chances are you'll find a card sample using some patterned paper you have in your stash, especially in a magazine/book like Cards. I don't buy them often because they are pricey, but I do flip through them regularly to find one that I particularly like and buy it. I let my PaperCrafts subscription expire but now I'm considering re subscribing so I have a new, constant source of inspiration. I have to think about it some more, though. I was running out of space to store these and I hate to let them go once I have them. 

I found this layout near the front of the book. The sample in the book was for a square card but I think it also lends itself quite nicely to a 4-bar notecard. What do you think? Try it! Link your card in the comments section so I can see what you created. 

Stamps: Chicks In A Row, favorite peeps MA
Paper: 4-bar Palm Green notecard, kitchen green, buttercup yellow
Accessories: Stampin Up Scallop border punch, Marvy Purple scallop circle punch, Pink circle punch, A Muse Orange crush grosgrain stitched ribbon
