"Same but Different" card inspiration

*Gasp* I didn't blog on Saturday!
 I spent Easter with Granny and the family, without wi-fi.
I hope you all had a great weekend. I know we did.
I've been really tired lately, and haven't been creative when it comes to paper.
I managed to make a few more aprons for a customer. I get lost browsing through the fabric stores, and I want it all. When I would get the time to use it all I'll never know.
Recently Cathy, from In The Cat Cave, sent me a lovely present.
It was just what I needed to perk me up and get me creating with paper again.
The scrapbooking group I belong to on facebook had a "Same but Different" challenge in March and I hosted this time. The challenge is simple enough, each particpant was sent the same (or similar) items and we all created something from it with items from our own stash.

 Originally, my plan was to create a layout using the divided page protectors and make an element from my supplies. As I went on a card came to mind using the new Little Yellow Bicycle stamps I won.
I kept going.
 Since I hosted I had the extras out nearby, I started making similar creations.

The Stampin' Up set Cathy sent me just pushed me on. The vintage feel to the colors and journalling tabs mixed with the images was so inspiring.
I made a whole stack before I knew it.


Like Pablo Picaso said "Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working".


  1. Love these ! Adore the second card !! Love the flower on the last 3 and really love those 2 stamps !!!

  2. Love, love, love! I think the "We Care" is my favourite.
