This week’s Inspiration from the Everyday combines two of my favorite things: bargains and internet shopping!
I am a sucker for a bargain, so when I saw a silhouette die-cutting cartridge in the clearance bin at one of my favorite craft stores, I couldn’t pass it by; in the cart and to my house it went! I had NO clue what I was going to do with it, but I could not leave it in that bin for a mere $15.00!
Fast forward to my recent internet shopping spree on Etsy … looking for a creative anniversary gift for my husband of soon to be 10 years … I stumbled upon Apple Blossom Print. Rachel, owner and founder of Apple Blossom Print, creates personalized, custom silhouette prints. With her creative direction, I created this fabulous silhouette print to honor our 10 years of marital bliss.
As I started to shop for framing, I remembered the silhouette cartridge sitting lonely and unused on my shelf. I was inspired to create this beach layout using the Summer’s End line.
I am really happy with how it turned out and I am excited to create more silhouette-inspired layouts and projects!
Moral of the story? Don’t let a bargain pass you by, it may result in creative genius!
