Ins(paper)ation: Vintage

“You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” Jack London

I love sharing with you my winding roads of inspiration. It is not always so easy to explain or to find out how I came up with a certain design. However, this design was not really a big surprise if you consider my recent "adventures". For the past week and a half my house is under renovations. When it started everyone thought we were crazy staying in the house while works are going on, after two days I realized they were right. My two boys and I moved temporarily to my mom's. My brave husband stayed behind to make sure everything is going well. My mom is a big fan of antiques, her house is beautifully arranged and adorned with all kinds of vintage art and embellishments. I love the atmosphere in her house and naturally it inspired me to create a layout with a vintage feel to it. Luckily this month's kit from My Punch's kit of the month's club provided me with the right materials.

I added a lot of details, flowers and embellishments to create a rich look. Here are the details up close.

What is your inspiration? Where do you get the ideas for your creations?

If you think about it you may discover inspiration comes from the strangest places.



  1. החיבור בין כל האלמנטים מושלם!

  2. קודם כל הדף הזה מהמם!!! באמת מאוד עשיר ועם זאת לא לוקח את הפוקוס מהתמונות! גם הקיט הזה נראה לי נהדר.
    את ההשראה שלי אני מוצאת בד"כ ברשת, למשל אצלך... :-)

  3. well, my inspiration is definitely coming from you right now... all these beautiful projects! This is another fabulous layout... once again I love all the details (flowers, buttons, and all) that you added to this lo! TFS!!
