paper pretties...

I'm sorry for being away so long.  It seems time got away from me again.  Does it sound like that's the story of my life lately?

Last night I was inspired to pull together some paper and embellishments for a couple of new cards.  This beautiful paper is from Pink Paislee and made it very easy to be inspired.

I thought it would be fun if I went through all my beautiful stash of lovelies and put together a little inspiration station.  Papertrey stamps, pretty pearls, silk ribbon and lace...

I even broke into my new stash of wrinkled seam binding...

Seeing it all laid out always gets my creative juices flowing.  If you haven't tried working like this, I highly encourage you to give it a try.  The colors, patterns and textures make putting a project together a breeze.  The trick is in knowing when to stop adding stuff...A lesson I am still learning.

I promise I'll share the finished cards tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by, Patty.

So many pretties. How can you not be inspired. I love the wrinkled seam binding. Where did you find it. Can't wait to see what you do with it and how you combineall the elements into a card. I know what you mean about time...where does it go.
