What's Up? Wednesday

Welcome to our first "What's Up? Wednesday"! Each Wednesday you'll hear from one of our Design Team members on what's up in the scrapping world-- either worldwide, at Paper Pals, or even in our Design Team member's lives.

Today, Angela is sharing a bit about "What's Up" for her cardmaking.

I'm not all that confident in my cardmaking skills. Photos are a passion of mine, and layouts I make always have photos as a central theme. I've used photos on cards before, but get a little discouraged when trying to come up with card designs.

I've learned to scraplift others' great ideas, or even just use their cards as an inpiration piece. Today I'm sharing two cards with you that I made using the new My Minds Eye boy line "Good Day Sunshine" (at Paper Pals)-- both of which were inspired by cards I saw on blogs I like to visit.

#1: The inspiration card (found on "Bean Talk", Jillibean Soup's blog):

#2: The inspiration card (found on The Scrap Review blog):

Where do you get your inspiration when you are looking to create something?
Pin It!

Cute cards. I also have trouble coming up with ideas for cards. I like the edge of the first card.
