  YouTube Tuesday-Pop-Up Floral Card

Pin It
Hi!  Kim from Katydid Cards here with you.  Today I have a video to complement the Home Grown Blog Hop we had earlier this month where our projects were to be garden or flower themed.


This card has a bit of a twist to it as the bouquet of flowers pops-up when you open the card.  I've got to try one of these!

Speaking of trying...how about trying out our challenge this month at Connie Can Crop.  We have a photo inspiration for you this month...you can make any sort of project you want; you just need to use this photo to influence your design in some way.


If you'd like to know more about the challenge or want to link-up your project, just click here or on the image below:

http://conniecancrop.blogspot.com/p/challenges.html

One winner, picked at random will receive a prize from Connie and the team will pick their top three and you get a badge for your blog or social media!






That's all for me today.  See you next month with brand new videos.  In the meantime, if there's something you'd like to see, please let me know either here or on my blog, Katydid Cards.

  Question Of The Week

Pin It

It's that time again!!
Remember.. I want you to answer the question
 in the comment section too!
AND
if you have a question to ask for an upcoming week add that in the comments too, if you ask a question and I use it you will win a prize!!

Here is today's question!!
Where do you get your crafty inspiration from?

Shannon- I get most of my crafty inspiration from Pintrest. 
I click on Pintrest and I don't resurface for hours!!
 I also use Google Images but mostly Pintrest. 

AngelaHuge fan of google images!
 I love Pinterest too, but always tend go to google first.

Kim- In addition to Pinterest, 
where I waste..er..spend much time,
 I follow a number of blogs. 
I'd say Jennifer McGuire is my biggest source of inspiration,
 but a close second is Dawn Griffith.
 I'm also big into taking classes that interest me.

Sue- Sometimes I just kind of run into things
 in different places online and find things I want to try.

Marji- I usually just go with my own thoughts. If I try to copy something it rarely turns out.

Veronica- I usually get it from Pinterest, 
and CTMH idea books are also my favorites.
 But, sometimes I get a picture of something in my mind and try to get it done.

Connie- I love the Close to my Heart idea books.
I also love looking at other blogs, pinterest, and I like to google sketches.

So there you have it!!
Now it's time to let us know where you get your inspiration!!
Also, got a question for us...don't be shy, ask us!!

Remember you still have a few more days to enter Connie's Monthly Challenge!!

  Relaxing Lady Bug- Kitty Bee DT

Hello my crafty friends!
It's Connie here today to share a cute birthday card I created for my niece using one of Kitty Bee's digital images. The relaxing lady bug is so sweet- don't you think?



I added her on top of some lady bug paper and a red doily. Embellished the card with a resin ladybug I purchased while in Greece. The sentiment inside reads wishing a special young lady a special birthday!

You can find this and other great Digital Images in the Kitty Bee shop.
