Today I am sharing my love for 2 things. Stationary and Butterflies. I could spend hours in a paper store just drooling over the stationary sets. There is something about the way the are all packaged up that just makes me feel the need to have them. I collect anything butterfly that I can find when it comes to paper or stamps and I'm dying to make a wall of framed Butterflies and Pinterest has just encouraged my obsession with them lately. Such a fun trend!! The packaging for this is simple. I just used a little gift box approx 4x5 - stacked my envelopes and cards inside and embellished the cover to match the notecards.
I want InspirationAve to be a source of Inspiration for you all and I have been thinking there is so much more I can offer you so stay tuned this week I have some exciting plans and I want to share them with you. Today I am sharing a few of my favorite things that jumped out at me when I was "Pinning". This is a peek into the way I create. I love to make my own mood boards, gather products in the same colors and create projects that have the same feel. It doesn't mean everything will be just like the inspiration but it is such a great place to start. Mood boards are especially easy to create if you have an ipad handy. I keep my photos in little notebooks and reference them as I create. Gathering product before you create is key! It really helps the flow of ideas!

Just saying Hello today with a little Spring Banner. Paper is so fabulous!! I love the endless possiblities and relatively inexpensive ways to decorate with some color. Right now I am just finishing up some house renovations and just getting ready to start the decorating phase. The most fun part!! So in the mean time I thought my mantle could use a little color to welcome my friends and family. I have been a busy little bee trying to get my little shop set up and classes ready to go so... stay tuned for details very soon! Head on over to my Instagram if you want to see little snippets of what is coming. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a little announcement and tutorial. XOXO, Amy
Today I was able to spend a little time cleaning out my craft room and I always love it because I find fun little treasures that hide away. It's like taking a little trip shopping and I didn't spend a dime. You find things you didn't even remember you had. I had so much fun putting it into a little collection that I think I'm going to make this a regular feature of my blog.
