I have been a crafting fool this week...I am talking 4 layouts, 8 cards plus a few other mini projects so I have two to share with you today that were inspired by this week's shop.
First I was inspired by these earrings which feature a map of London.
I recently picked up an old atlas at the thrift store with big plans to create all sorts of great mini albums, cards, and projects and these earrings gave me the perfect inspiration to use a page from the atlas.
Here is my project...a decorated window tin:
I thought this would be fun to fill with some travel items for kids, like a pack of cards, pen & paper, and a little candy or to create a little travel mini album that could fit inside along with a few souvenirs from the trip. However, if any of you have some Mod Podge tips, I would love to hear them...it always ends up a little tacky for me. Or if you know of a better clear sealer product that goes on smooth let me know!
Next, I was inspired by this beautiful photograph.
The bright red and green just screamed Christmas to me so I created a fun card using the BoBunny Tis the Season Collection.
