Inspired by...

Good morning! Bookmarks, pin boards, galleries, likes - we all have them, but we don't always use them. At least I don't always use them.Yesterday I went back and checked some of my pins and bookmarks online. I picked one that caught my eye and scraplifted it - which is always a great solution when I don't have much time to play!


It was Jennifer Gallacher's layout. I love how these colors that she picked really work for a teenage girl page. I even happened to have two of the same papers that she used in my own stash, so I just took the guessing out of my work and used them too.


I've included a personal note to my daughter in that envelope. It's always a great way to do journaling when I don't feel like typing or don't have time for that :)

There's one more thing that I wanted to share with you today...

Did you ever wonder if you could use your Silhouette for something else besides scrapbooking? 

I did. This weekend I made a Tiramisu cake and before sifting cocoa powder to the top of my cake, I added a little design to it. I have kept a few negative pieces from Silhouette cut paper (these leaves were used for wedding invitations) and this is what I got by placing two pieces side by side:


Not perfect, but I think it's a nice little twist on a traditional plain cocoa powder covered cake! It may be a little challenging to pull paper of, but it you let the cake stand in the fridge before decorating, it will come off pretty easily.

Thanks for visiting my creative corner and have a great day! Hope to see you soon!
