Crafty Girl!...Inkspirational Challenge #170~Photo Challenge

Hello,

Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #170, where this fabulous Crafts photo serves as our inspiration.


My wonderful team and I are thrilled that Ilse is joining us as our Guest Designer.  Her card is lovely and please, do visit her blog; you'll be dazzled!  My teammates would be thrilled if you stopped at their places, too:


When I first saw this photo, way back when, I quivered! No ideas were pinging; no products were leaping out, calling for attention. AND THEN, out of the blue, my local retailer - scrapshotz - had a sale on her Simple Stories products. Her inventory included a variety of items from the Crafty Girl collection and, even though I've strayed away from patterned papers and have never - prior to this - used stickers or pre-made chipboard, I was smitten! Had. to. order! I had a blast making these cards and may, just may, have acquired a taste for these 'kit' type items.
 
This one is for my sister-in-law's mom...


This, for my sweet niece...


and this one...

and this one, too. *grin*

The group together...


Plenty of 'leftovers' still on the play list!


Looking forward to seeing your CRAFTY CRAFTS delights in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

Wow, Carol! You did amazing job with these kit items. I especially love the two last cards for your niece... That happy lady in the card with all her different accessories makes me smile! Beautiful pastel colors too. xxx

These are just adorable. I love all the cards for your very lucky niece-these are so cool, love how you coloured the hairbands-these are such fun. My hubby bought me an 'inspirational' book with quotes etc but it has stickers in etc and I have used it quite a lot. The quotes are good for inside cards and it also has some cool card that can be used for backgrounds-I thought I would just use it for quotes when inspiration needed and I needed a smile on my face...but no I have used it for quite a few cards

Excellent group of cards, Carol. They are all absolutely delightful. I adore the ones for your niece. So cute and fun. You did an outstanding job stepping out of your comfort zone with kit type items. Looks like a wonderful collection of goodies! Thank you SO much for sharing and delighting. :)

I'm not a 'kit' girl either, Carol, but the images in this set are exceptionally cute. You've made such wonderful cards with them.
